Increasing the Space
You may think that space is an aspect of the bathroom that you have little control over. It’s true that increasing the size of your bathroom is not usually possible, unless you are working on a more expensive remodel, but adding space or even the illusion of space, can be done with some clever design choices. For example, removing clutter and creating a pared back, ‘less is more’ approach to the bathroom design can give the sense of space and elegance. A
Additionally, you can give the room a brighter colour scheme which can add to the feeling of openness, or add a larger mirror for the illusion of a more expansive room.

Ample lighting is a vital aspect of any successful bathroom renovation. Light increases functionality and greatly impacts our emotional wellbeing. A bathroom that is well-lit with natural light will provide a welcoming and calming feeling to ensure comfort throughout the day. Whereas artificial lighting can create a mood or a unique ambiance for evening relaxation and a touch of luxe.
Importantly, the amount of light that is able to flow through your bathroom, is greatly affected by the size and shape of your bathroom and its windows. Although any structures that surround the bathroom outside of your home, such as neighbouring homes, trees and fencing will also impact the amount of light that is able to stream through.
If you are fortunate enough to have large windows in your bathroom be sure to capitalise on them to maximise the input of natural lighting. Although large open windows can reduce your overall privacy, the addition of simple window dressings such as sheer curtains can provide cover and still allow sunlight in.
However, if your budget allows, you may be able to consider higher priced options such as smart glass or skylights. Smart glass gives you the option to switch between clear or opaque glass, to give you privacy or natural light when needed. If possible you may also want to consider adding a skylight to provide a private source of sunlight into the bathroom. Skylights are especially effective for bathrooms with no external walls.
If your bathroom has only small windows or no windows at all, then be selective with your artificial lighting choices, and opt for light sources that create the illusion of natural light. There are numerous unique bulb options and elegant lighting designs which you can use to create the style and mood you are after. Some great options for bathroom lighting include, pendant lights, downlights and wall sconces.
Materials, Fixtures & Fittings
Finding the right combination of materials to provide natural beauty and high quality style can be a complex aspect of your bathroom renovation. With so many options to choose from you can get weighed down with choice. This is why keeping things simple and within a similar style can be highly beneficial.
Selecting natural materials such as marble and stone offer a great deal of warmth and texture, whilst adding a touch of opulence. These luxury materials are derived from nature and as a result, give a sense of calmness and tranquility.
Furthermore, adding premium fittings and fixtures will continue the thread of luxe throughout your bathroom renovation. Simply replacing old sinks, showerheads, tapware, toilets and bathtubs, can quickly transform any bathroom. But be sure to select fixtures and fittings that compliment the colours and materials that are used throughout the space, to achieve a balanced look.
An easy way to add a sense of elegance to a bathroom, is through a statement piece. For example, a freestanding bath is a popular and impressive designer option to consider. Freestanding baths come in many shapes, sizes and can act as a focal point for the space. Other luxurious options to consider when renovating your bathroom, include adding a second sink; and heated towel racks, towel drawers and flooring.
With our lives becoming more intertwined with technology everyday, including aspects of the digital world in new bathroom renovations is becoming ever more common. Adding LCD touch panels to replace traditional controls in the room, or even smart showers, smart toilets and smart mirrors, can all be options when designing a state of the art designer bathroom.
You can also enjoy the ease of using lights, taps and soap dispensers without touching anything through sensor activated fittings and fixtures.
Additionally, you could consider installing speakers so you can listen to music in the shower or a water resistant television to enjoy the latest episode of your favourite show whilst having a bath. There are hundreds of unique technological upgrades that you can make when renovating your bathroom, you just need to decide what ideas work best for you.
