There are certain rooms in the home where comfort is a big deal. You can live with a laundry room that’s slightly uncomfortable, but a living room, bedroom, or bathroom? That’s a different story. If those rooms aren’t quite up to scratch when it comes to comfort, then we’re going to feel it — and why we’re not going to like it. The good news is that it’s always possible to make a space more comfortable, and it doesn’t take much time. In this blog, we’re going to take a look at a few tried and tested ways to make your bathroom a more enjoyable place to be. Make the changes, and you’ll be bathing in comfort in no time!
Change the Lighting
Have you seen the video of a woman with different shades of lighting on her face? It’s like looking at ten different people. Every new casting of lighting changes how she looks. So if lighting has that effect on a person’s face, just think about what it can do a room. In the bathroom, people tend to go for overly functional lighting. On one level, it makes sense — people want to see what they look like. On the other, it’s a bit of a mood killer. It’s too clinical. Look at adding subtle under cabinet lights instead — you can always keep the big light, and just use it when it’s needed.
Make It Roomy
It’s hard to be comfortable in a bathroom if it feels like you can’t really stretch out. And it’s just patently not enjoyable to feel cramped while you’re trying to dry or get ready. But no matter how small your bathroom may be, there are always ways to make it a little roomier, especially when you’re freshening things up. Incorporate space saving design tips for bathrooms into your makeover, and you’ll find that your small bathroom isn’t quite as small as it used to be. If you’re not transforming everything, then moving any non-daily items to a storage unit elsewhere in the home will create a little more space to work with.
Bring the Warmth
We might be in spring mode now, but let’s not have short memories — we can all recall the chill of the winter months. And how much did it suck stepping out of the shower, into the cold air, knowing that it’s not going to get any better than this in the hours to come? Well, there’s a solution, one that’ll transform your winter showering. They’re called towel heaters, and they’re awesome. You’ll get out of that warm shower, into the chill, and then instantly wrap yourself in a warm hug. Lovely.
Upgrade the Towels
And talking of towels — are yours really up to scratch? People get weirdly attached to their towels. Or, rather, they forget to upgrade them. But it’s worthwhile putting them towards the top of your shopping list, because those plush towels will make your bathroom experience all the more enjoyable. Actually, scratch that — it’ll make it awesome.
