How to Elevate Your Bathroom

Are you looking to refresh your bathroom but are not ready to undergo a complete refurbishment?

ASJ’s designers have put together a guide on how to elevate your bathroom with a bit of creativity and some smart, easy ideas, to transform your space into a tranquil sanctuary. Let's dive in!

Play with Lighting

Good lighting is crucial for creating a beautiful bathroom, as it can make the world of difference.

A simple fix is to begin by replacing old, dull bulbs with new ones – so simple yet can completely brighten your space.

We recommend 2700K warm white and dimmable if your circuit allows to soften the ambience in the evenings.

At a bit more cost we would recommend new light fixtures. Consider layering your lighting, with a combination of ambient lighting and task lighting to create a well-illuminated room.

At ASJ Design we love to combine task lighting for focused illumination with carefully placed ambient lighting to highlight key features and to set the mood.

Task lighting can be incorporated with ceiling fixtures or incorporated into your mirror with LED’s and layered with wall lights or a decorative pendant for ambient lighting.

Embrace the Power of Mirrors

Mirrors not only add depth and dimension to a bathroom but also reflect light, making the space appear more spacious and luminous.

They are also fantastic décor pieces, and we think a framed wall-mounted mirror adds elegance to any bathroom. Consider using decorative frames to match your aesthetic. You can even opt for a vintage or antique mirror for a more unique touch.

At ASJ Design we also love upcycling, so why not consider stripping back your old, framed mirror and painting it in a new colour – this will bring it back to life and help to refresh your space.

Smart Storage Solutions

Clutter can distract from the beauty of any space. An organised bathroom instantly feels more refined.

We think what makes a bathroom successful is when everything has a place, floating shelves and niches add a touch of elegance to storage solutions.

Begin to utilise stylish storage solutions like floating shelves, woven baskets, or decorative containers to keep essentials tidy.

By decluttering your space, you allow the design elements to take centre stage to create more visually appealing environment.

Personal Touches

Accessories are the secret to turning a simple space into a more curated haven. We suggest you start with a cohesive colour palette for your accessories, choosing shades that complement the existing elements in your bathroom.

Invest in quality items that stand the test of time as you will get more for your money, but they will also be a lot more successful.

Creating a neat and organised space helps to make the bathroom appear bigger so accessories like trays, glasses for toothbrushes and jars are really successful.

Adding texture

A simple way to elevate a bathroom is to add in texture. Swap out old towels and bath mats for plusher, high-quality options that match the colour scheme.

Consider adding in a rug to provide warmth underfoot as well. We have been loving adding rattan and wicker to bathrooms to infuse texture with style.

Another way to layer texture is adding plants, these can be fake or real, but they add a touch of colour and nature as well as creating a layer of texture.
