Does the dilapidated state of your toilet make your kid avoid the toilet training? Why just the kid, don’t you also feel jealous of your neighbour’s well-styled bathroom at times? Interior designers suggest that the décor of the restroom is as important as keeping it clean.
Since bathroom-cum-toilet is a common phenomenon nowadays, it’s important we also take care of its décor. Interior designer Anita Hirani says, “Not just cleanliness, one should also focus on the look of the bathroom. Accessorising the bathroom can help do that without tampering with the structure.” Tips for a chic loo
Choose a theme colour for your bathroom. Since white is tough to maintain, you can go for other lighter shades like sky blue, light pink, etc.
If your toilet seat is old fashioned with a black lid, paint it in a jazzy new, fun colour.
Place a plant at a cornor in a fancy pot. It will brighten the area.
Apart from the bright lighting, have an arrangement for diffused light. This kind of lighting looks nice in the evenings.
Put photo frames, or framed sketches by your kids on the wall.
Put oil lamp on the slab in the bathroom having a soothing aroma.
Accessorise the bathroom by placing colourful or a theme coloured soap dispenser, hangers, shampoo bottles, or cuffing up the mirror with flower beads.
If there’s no shelf in the bathroom, buy wooden shelves to place the toiletries, giving it a stylish look.
A new shower curtain depending on the colour of your bathroom will give an instant makeover to your bathroom.
One can also place a few books on a wooden shelf.
