Sleek Solutions: Ideas for Your New Bathroom

If you're thinking about having your bathroom replaced, or at least updated, then you should be thinking about what changes you can make to make that space work better for you. Just making aesthetic changes is nice, but you'll really feel the most benefit from making it more functional for everyday use. Here are a couple of ideas for improvements you could make, if you're struggling for ideas.

Glass Splashbacks

Leave shower curtains to Hitchcock; it's not the sixties any longer. Glass splashbacks perform the same task, but they don't age nearly as quickly as curtains — and they're very easy to keep clean, as they can simply be wiped down with a cloth and some all-purpose bathroom cleaner. They may also make the shower space feel bigger, as the glass won't take up nearly as much room as the bunched-up fabric. Finally, they're modern and neutral. Compare that to the prints and patterns of shower curtains, which can be difficult to match with the rest of your bathroom space.

Wall-Mounted Sink Storage

Save space around the area of your sink with wall-mounted shelves or cups. These are useful for storing toothbrushes and soap and leave the area of the sink open. Not only does this look tidier and more open, but it also gives you plenty of room to actually use the sink without knocking soap or toothpaste onto the floor. Wood and chrome are popular materials, but you can likely find mounts of any material to suit the rest of your bathroom.

Shower Speakers

Okay, this one won't be for everybody — but if you're the kind of person who likes to wake themselves up in the morning with a burst of happy music, or chill out in the evening to the sounds of your favourite album, then built-in waterproof shower speakers may be a fun addition for you. They can be attached to a radio, CD player or connect via bluetooth to your phone. However they work, you can safely pump your favourite music directly into the shower with you.

Of course, all bathroom improvements will depend on your budget. Installing a new glass splashback or shower speaker is likely to be more expensive than a lick of paint — but these are simple, small changes which will make your bathroom feel a whole lot different. That's a lot of bang for your buck, and well worth considering if you're looking for a big change in your bathroom.

About Me

Installing More Glass Can Improve Your Home Hello! I'm Terry and my favourite subject is glass. I became passionate about glass about a year ago when I was having some renovation and repair work carried out in my home. The contractor who was in charge of the work asked me if I had considered installing additional windows and skylights in order to brighten up some of the darker areas of the building. I hadn't considered this, but once it was suggested to me, I because hooked on the idea. I learnt all I could about how I could use glass to improve my quality of life. I hope this blog inspires you to do the same.
