BRIGHTEN A DULL BATHROOM

It is often a subject which we ourselves cover when discussing bathroom design .. the use of colour and ways in which to brighten your space. Traditional white shades as well as the new contemporary route of grey have the serene feel desired for a bathroom space, although they can often appear to be slightly washed out or clinical when applied to a whole area.

The use of colour or featured pieces can be quite a daunting concept when it comes to redecorating, with many confused over how to apply it properly and at what stage does it become too much, taking away from your traditional look to begin with.

As bathroom specialists with an keen eye for design we thought to assist on the matter with a few helpful tips, as illustrated by Pinterest. You can follow us directly here.

So where to begin? As discussed in our previous AW17 trend blog accessories are the safe bet when it comes to changing the styling of any room without causing any major upset in terms of refurb. Illustrated perfectly to the right, the use of matching yellow towelling and accessories has created focal points within the room (some may argue perhaps too much, but that is down to personal taste). If a pop colour like yellow isn't quite for you why not bring in some pastel tones? These have the ability to lift a single colour such as white or grey in a very subtle manner.

Thirdly, feature panels - what we at Rearo are best know for. A full room of colour in a very vivid or bright tone such as our Blue Turquoise or Lime Zest may be too much for some, however we have a quick fix. For those of you looking for colour but not wanting to take the full plunge .. feature walls. Section off certain areas of your room - one back wall, or covering your wall lengths can make an area appear longer and so visually increase your space. By selecting one area such as a pillar you can also give the room and abstract appeal.

With all of this being said we would never turn our back on the classic white design, we feel it has tradition and the original feel of cleanliness in the home. This blog however just gives a suggestion by which to bring some quirk if you're looking for a change.

The second style we would highlight as being big this season is the monochrome effect. The black outlining of white shapes can give sophisticated appeal to your bathroom, creating minimal yet effective impact. Again we would limit the extent to which this method is used as it may be overcrowded instead of the clean cut appeal for which it was originally intended.We at Rearo supply our own black trims, suited to both our Selkie (8mm) and Versatile ranges (3mm). Available to buy from here. Our suggested look is to create a feature of your bathroom back wall and join two trims using a H-section and two then edge either end using an internal corner profile.
