5 Ways to Create an Elegant Bathroom 



Whether you have a large footprint or a more compact space, creating an elegant bathroom is actually a lot easier than you may think. This guide will take you through some simple ways to transform your bathroom into your own personal sanctuary.

Choose custom cabinets

Clutter is the very antithesis of elegance, so it should be kept to a minimum at all costs. Custom-made cabinets not only offer a touch of luxury to your bathroom but can also be used to store away bathroom accessories such as towels, bath soaks, and cleaning supplies.

You can also use cabinets to hide unsightly electric plugs and appliance cords which will distract from the overall elegant atmosphere that you are trying to achieve.

If you have a small bathroom, cabinets that feature mirrors can effectively open up a compact space.

Use decorative tiles

If you have a healthy budget, decorative tiles can add style and sophistication to your bathroom. Don't be afraid to experiment with colour and texture; an elegant bathroom doesn't have to mean a neutral one.

Whether you choose glass, ceramic, stone, or metal tiles, you are not limited to just flooring and walls. Instead, why not create an eye-catching border around a specific area or frame a mirror?

Take your time when choosing bathroom supplies, as you need to make sure that the room flows throughout and is cohesive in its design.



Change the lighting

Lighting can have a huge impact on a room's overall feel and mood, with harsh overhead lighting making a space feel cold and dreary. On the other hand, soft lighting can make the space feel warm, welcoming, and relaxing – just what you want for your elegant bathroom.

Both task and accent lighting work well in a bathroom, as do candles and a dimmer switch for your overhead light.

Add an additional sink

Having two sinks can instantly transform your bathroom into a more classic and stylish space if you have the square footage. For maximum effect, place the two sinks next to each other on a long countertop, preferably set on top of a custom-made cabinet.

It can also be a good idea to place your sinks in front of a window so that you can enjoy as much natural light as possible. If you choose pedestal sinks, remember that these do not offer any storage, so you will need to have sufficient cabinets to make up for this.

Pick luxurious accessories

When creating an elegant bathroom, the small touches really make a big difference, so make sure that you do not overlook these crucial design elements. For example, rather than using standard chrome taps, why not opt for solid-gold or polished brass ones instead?

Or look for more intricate cabinet knobs such as ones shaped like flowers or hearts?

Don't forget to also invest in high-quality, plush towels and add a few luxury candles around the room to create the ultimate spa-like experience.
