Contrary to popular belief, being able to enjoy a bit of bathtime luxury doesn’t mean you have to shell out on a weekend away at some luxury boutique hotel or runaway to an award-winning spa. That is because you can get that feeling of total luxe in your home. Chances are, you are rolling your eyes right about now, muttering to yourself about how bathrooms are one of the most expensive rooms to renovate in the whole house. And you are right. They are. But we have two things to say on that front. Firstly, being able to relax in a luxury bathroom is always worth the cost and, secondly, who says luxury has to put you in financial ruin.
Sure, you may not be able to afford marble-tiling or a tub that has golden eagle claws as the feet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t spruce your space up a million percent. That’s right, this blog is all about going luxe for less, and here are the best ways how:
Sit Down And Relax
If you have ever been lucky enough to waltz into a high-end bathroom then you will have probably noticed that there was some variation of seating available to you. It could have been a cow-skinned ottoman, a high-backed armchair or just a stool – it doesn’t matter. The point is, having a seat adds a new dimension of luxury because it gives you another place to sit back and relax; somewhere to do your makeup and manicure other than the loo.
Rugs Not Mats
If you are stepping out of the bath and onto a tired old bath mat then your bathroom is in more need of a revamp than we first thought. You see, it is the smaller details that have the biggest impacts, especially in bathrooms where space is plenty, which is why you need to lay down an old Persian rug. That is one of the best ways to add a new layer of sophistication and character to your bathroom, while also filling that giant space in the middle of the room with something that dazzles.
Your Walls Matter
How you decorate your walls will have a huge impact on how luxurious your bathroom looks and feels. Of course, it isn’t all about being fancy; it is also about practicality. What do we mean by that? Simple. Make sure you have space for a lovely-looking towel rail, which you can get with a click here, and make sure you have a mirror that will give you great feedback by using as much natural light as possible. Once you have got these two must-haves in place, it is all about hanging statement art pieces and lining your shelves with beautiful little trinkets. There aren’t many rooms in your home where you can lay back for an hour and relax without distraction, which is why adorning your walls is so important.
Only One Metal
You can’t escape having some form of metal material in your bathroom, which is why you need to be conscious about which you choose. Luckily, there is only one choice to enjoy and that is brass. Walk into the bathroom at a luxury boutique hotel and you will likely find brass has been used for the finishing touches. So, when it comes to replacing your faucets, soap dish, mirror frame or anything, make sure you consider brass.
