Bathroom tips#1: create a mood-board

By 22. juni 2011 juni 24th, 2011 Bathroom

 

I get really excited about bathrooms. Really! I think many people cringe a little and get fidgety at the thought of renovating the most visited room in a house. And not to mention that it’s the first thing we see when we start our day AND it can be a cost-bar affair if not done properly. So it’s an important room.

One serious note though, and can’t point out enough, how important it is to use professional workmen to do the ground work. No one likes to talk about money but one cheap penny saved can in the long run turn to be many more expensive pennies down the track. Realities are it’s a worthy investment, and bathrooms have a huge re-sale value when selling your house.

And so, my favorite, I love to talk about the aesthetics that lie in the bathroom. The fantastic world of tiles, fixtures, cabinets, mirrors, lighting, showers, bathtubs and toilets is huge! You may have an idea or not but a good idea is to start up a mood-board.  You may have heard about this before but a mood-board is just such a brilliant idea to sort out all the ideas and wishes into one place. Clip out all the bathrooms you like from a few different mags or print out some pictures from the net. Stick them up and start dreaming…

Here are few favourites I found…

Loving the different textures here via Freshome

Loving these colours and easiness via Housetohome

Just had to set in this beautiful and delicate bathroom in via desiretoinspire.

In the next few months I thought I might once a week tickle your taste buds a little with a few tips on creating that dream bathroom. Ideas and thoughts to ponder over before you set about doing that big job.  What do you think?  Is there something you would like to know more about?  Write me or leave a comment, I’d love to know.

Have a dreamy day.

Love Lisa
