I started clicking around trying to find some ideas, I quickly came up with a quick tick list of styles and things I liked; lots of natural light, high ceilings, the feeling of space, a mixture of scandi and different textures from wood, pattern and plants.
We had already decided to knock through our toilet and bathroom to make the space feel bigger, however thanks to the space still being rather tight we had to make a big decision and put the bath over the shower, knowing this would feel a big tight I started to look at ways to create the illusion of more space. Extra shelves, both sunken and floating create a lovely place to store prettier bathroom bits and bobs.
I adore the look of hexagon tiles, they're super on trend although I think if done well will age well. However I'm sick of marble and white, so feel like either a mix of neutral / earthy colours or patterned ones.
I fell in love with this white, white, white look (above left) and after finding out the vanity was from IKEA I fell in love a little more. The creative lighting is awesome, the only thing I didn't like is the mirror, having lots of squares already - bath, vanity, tiles... I turned to the circular mirror trend which seems really affordable (target and kmart have them) and great as a temporary or long term option!
I definitely prefer the look of the basin on top of the vanity (a la the picture on the right), although probably not another circle...so much to think about!
Natural colours, a mix of textures and patterns in a light, bright, bathroom....sounds easy enough!? I've skipped ahead and started thinking about finishing touches, pretty candles, devils ivy falling from a shelf and lush products lined up neatly on a shelf. I also definitely want to think of / make some way to balance a book / wine glass in the bath either with a built in lip or by making a bath caddy to fit across (as I can't find one to buy anywhere!).
