There is Always Room for Feng Shui in Your Bathroom

Guest post contributed by Diana Smith

Long gone are the days when the bathroom was a mere utility room – over the years, it has become a spot that evokes tranquility, contemplation and the overall peace. These three pillars of well-deserved bathroom isolation aren’t possible without creating a proper Feng Shui atmosphere. Here’s what you can do in order to make this cozy room a tranquil place of contemplation.

Add plants

Placing plants in your bathroom may sound like a weird idea, but this is nothing but a ridiculous misconception. The fact that we evolved from nature means that we are still very much a part of it, and as such, we need to embrace it as much as we can. Simply-put: plants make people feel good. Placing lush plants in your bathroom will freshen the air up and provide that tranquility that everybody needs.
As for meeting the necessary conditions for bathroom plant life, fret not, as a lot of houseplants actually “prefer” the bathrooms’ tropical conditions that include warmth, humidity and low light.

Elements of a Stunning Vintage-style Bathroom

Guest post contributed by Diana Smith

 
As spaces that don’t see much traffic during the day, bathrooms are often unjustly neglected. Small bathrooms are even more often overlooked, as people instantly relate design with ‘unnecessary accessories and trinkets’. On the contrary, a well-decorated bathroom becomes a warm and welcoming escape pod. Vintage-style bathrooms are popular because of their elegant and classy fixtures. If you have set your heart on a vintage-bathroom remodeling, look for fixtures and decorative pieces that date back to the era when electricity and indoor plumbing were novelties.

Bathroom Makeovers: 4 Tips for a Classier Bathroom

Even though it’s often the smallest room in the house, the bathroom is a key element to any home. A classy guest bathroom can give you the air of a high-class host. A luxurious master bathroom can be a great place to relax as well. For these and other reasons, this room can sometimes be the most expensive one to remodel.

Fortunately, there are ways to lessen the financial blow of upgrading one of these important rooms. Remember that the key to a successful project is to start early. It also helps to make a detailed plan with a budget that you can comfortably work with. This will help keep it less expensive than some other types of home renovation. Here are a few tips for a classy guest bathroom renovation project. 

Plenty of Seating

When people think of a bathroom, they don’t often think of having extra seating. While this luxury doesn’t make sense for every bathroom, it can add a touch of elegance to some. A comfortable chair at a vanity, for example, can make doing your hair or make-up a more comfortable experience. Having a plush window seat can also be nice. This allows you to enjoy the morning or evening view while performing your beauty routines is also an option.

Even if you don’t use the extra seats, having comfortable chairs in your bathroom will make it feel luxurious.  You could even consider adding a comfortable stool next to the tub. This provides a place to sit while you’re soaking your feet, painting your toenails, or drawing a bath. Added seating will also be a benefit while you’re remodeling because you’ll have somewhere to sit. It’s important to note that seating should only be added if your bathroom is large enough to accommodate it, as you don’t want the room to feel cramped.
