Your bathroom is more than just a place to wash up. It’s a space to relax, unwind and refresh. This small room can make a big impact on your home and can easily be transformed into a personal spa. Sharon Grech, Benjamin Moore Colour & Design Expert, helps to transform your bathroom into a relaxing oasis over a weekend in four easy steps.
Upgrade your Hardware: Updating your hardware such as faucets and showerheads can be transformative without breaking your budget. Hardware has gone in bold new directions and colours this year including gold, white, bronze, chrome and brushed stainless steel. “Gold hardware can bring incredible drama when used as an accent,” advises Grech. “Where as white can add elegance and a clean, modern look.”
Choosing the Right Colour and Finish: To create an open, airy feel in a small bathroom, Grech recommends using subtle colours and working with a monochromatic colour scheme that features various paint finishes. “You can create dimension in any room by playing around with varying sheen levels. Painting wood paneling on walls or ceilings in a different finish is an excellent way to add depth,” says Grech.
Anyone who enjoys a satisfying soak should also pay special attention to the ceiling. “Incorporating an accent colour to your ceiling can bring life to your bathroom and something lovely to enjoy while gazing up,” says Grech.
Select the Paint for a Professional Job: Since there’s a great deal of moisture in the bathroom, it’s important to pick a quality paint that is moisture and mildew resistant. Grech recommends Benjamin Moore Aura Bath & Spa because it locks out moisture and maintains colour integrity in even the steamiest conditions in a matte finish.
Personalize with Accents: Towels, floor mats, artwork and accessories are your chance to show off your style. Grech recommends experimenting with different materials and textures within your colour scheme or incorporating one bold punch of contrasting colour to energize the room. “A bright colour can be just the thing to help wake you up on a sluggish morning,” she notes.
