Bathroom Styling Tips on A Budget

Now I don't know about you, but I could spend hours on Pinterest browsing through various home interiors and mentally planning a full home redesign. My biggest guilty pleasures are definitely kitchens and bathrooms! 

There's a lot more that can be done to a bathroom than people think. Whether you're looking for a more classic bathroom with beautifully crafted cabinets, or a more modern stance, with cutting edge technology, and quirky designs. The possibilities truly are endless. You could even opt for a wet room for a more minimalistic approach! If you're looking for simple and classy ideas, check out the bathroom designs at Harrogate Bathrooms.

So, you've decided on the design of your dream bathroom, but what about the decor and accessories? Accessorising a room can really bring the room to life, and you don't have to break the bank to do so. 

Windows & Mirrors
If you have a particularly small bathroom, utilising your windows and mirrors will be your best friend. To open up the room, keep any blinds or drapes to a minimal, nothing too bulky or wild in colour. The plainer the better! A light and airy drape will give the illusion of a bigger room as it moves with the breeze.

Adding a large mirror to the smaller walls will immediately open up your room and let more light into the space. Again, nothing to overcomplicated in design, just keep it nice and simple. Play around with shapes too and see what fits best, sometimes a circular mirror can look even better!

Plants, Plants & More Plants
My general rule with decorating, is if there's an empty space that looks like it's missing something, stick a plant in it. Honestly, you can rarely go wrong with houseplants. Bathrooms tend to go by the 'less is more rule' in that the less clutter and accessories, the better. A lot of nik-naks can sometimes look a bit too cluttered as not everything is designed to go perfectly with your theme.

Not only will adding some nature to your bathroom add a pop of colour and create the perfect zen atmosphere, but a lot of plants actually thrive in the humidity of your bathroom!

Since bathrooms tend to be majority tiled, it can leave your room looking a little flat. Playing around with textures and patterns can add depth to your bathroom and bring it back to life. Using wood panelling, natural stone, or some eye catching patterns is a great way to spruce up a wall, a shelve, or cabinet.

Or for an even easier option, adding a snazzy textured rug, or adding some gorgeous decorative linen and bathrobes makes your bathroom feel less like a showroom, and more like you're home. You could even display you're most decorative perfumes, or candles to add a more personal touch to the room.

How would you accessorise your bathroom? And what would your dream bathroom look like?
