The bathroom is often one of the most important rooms in your apartment for relaxing after a long day. You can turn your washroom from lifeless to luxurious by completing these simple modifications:

Hardware

Upgrading your bathroom’s appearance can be as simple as switching out the hardware for more elegant colours and materials to accent various parts of the room. For a more luxurious look, seek out designs that offer embellishments in the form of a polish, style, or dramatic shape. In order maintain fluidity and simplicity, coordinate hardware with at least one other element in the bathroom. Try a vintage or speciality store to find unique and affordable options.

Seating

The most opulent of bathrooms are almost guaranteed to come equipped with some sort of seating. Why run the bath sitting on the cold lid of the toilet when you could find yourself seated on a cushioned stool or ottoman? This elegant piece is a simple way to add a pop of colour and class to your apartment's bathroom.

Lighting

Increase the welcoming atmosphere and warmth of your bathroom by swapping standard lighting for something a little softer. Try installing dimmer switches to give your bathroom a spa-like feel. For a gentle and delicate glow, place your favourite candles on the surfaces in your bathroom and light them during evening baths, at-home spa nights or simply to create ambiance. Try swapping ordinary lighting for fixtures that make a stylish statement. Look for something with a distinct and artful look that complements the rest of your bathroom hardware. Windows can also be great options for bathroom lighting by maximizing natural light and creating the perfect backdrop for your bathroom relaxation.

Storage

Keep your toiletries and bathroom essentials stored in a sophisticated and stylish way by trading out tacky containers for ceramic soap dishes and glass apothecary jars. For larger items like towels, floating shelves and simplistic shelving units provide more storage while creating the illusion of space. Keep surfaces neat and tidy by using drawer organizers. Choosing organizers with various compartments can keep your items accessible and keep your counters clutter-free.

Textiles

Create a sense of luxury in your bathroom by purging old hand towels and any other textiles—and making sure all new ones match! Retire your dirty and tired bathmat and replace it with a terry cloth rug to immediately transform your bathroom.  Make the room appear less messy by sticking to a singular colour scheme for textiles to tie them all together.

Mirrors

Selecting the proper mirror for your bathroom can add drama, while also enhancing the notion of space. Choosing a mirror with a refined finish or a multi-faceted rim can transform your vanity wall. Look for an alternative to the traditional rectangular mirror to create visual interest and depth to your bathroom.

Let your worries slip away by unwinding in your upscale washroom today.
