The reality is that bathrooms require a lot more thought than your average room when it comes to the design. It may be that since the focus is on functionality people find it harder to be creative with the design – which is even more reason to think of original treatments that will make the room all the more pleasing. Try and make the bathroom an exciting space and look to the past for inspiration. It’s a great opportunity to do something unexpected.
Back in the good old days you’d find the same fitted carpets and wallpapers in a bathroom as you would in a drawing room. I always have such fun looking around bathrooms in old houses. People did mad things which were definitely not the most practical but there is a lot of feeling in it! And it is worth considering making the bathroom a cosier and welcoming space if you can.
