8 Easy Steps For A Spa-Styled Bathroom: Free eBook
The bathroom is the one of the rooms the rooms we're most likely to decorate. It's the space where, at the end of a long day, we can lock ourselves away and unwind in the tub or the shower! So, therefore, it's a popular idea to create a naturalistic, soothing, relaxing scheme in the bathroom.
But - where to start? What comes first when transforming the bathroom into a spa-styled sanctuary? Luckily for us, Louisa Charlotte has created a step by step guide in the 8 Easy Steps For A Spa-Styled Bathroom eBook. Delivering exactly what it promises, this ebook carries you from the start at the planning stage, right through to adding those finishing touches.
Firstly, Louisa helps you carry out an assessment of what you would like to achieve at the end of your bathroom transformation. Next up, she guides you in creating a mood board - either with magazine clippings in a scrap book or with the online scrap book that is Pinterest! This will help you to gather together styles, colours and accessories that you love the look of.
Following this, it's time to make a list of your ideal products: would you like a double vanity unit? A free standing bath? A walk-in shower area? Once you know what main elements you'll have in the bathroom, it's time to start planning around them. Louisa then takes you through the surface selection for the walls and floors, with lots of stylish, classic and trending suggestions for the walls and floors.
Next, there's a quick mention of moisture and heat. Firstly, you might consider installing a bathroom fan to sift out the steam and prevent moisture from effecting your walls and ceilings. Secondly, you might consider some heating options since nobody likes a cold bathroom - underfloor heating, heated towel rails and heated mirrors are all excellent options that are cheaper to run than you might think!
Then comes the research and budget stage. Once you've worked out how much you'd like to spend, Louisa talks you through some great ideas for finding the right products at the right prices, to ensure you get the look you want at the price you want, without having to compromise on style or quality. After some good advice on scheduling the project, it's time for some tips on adding the perfect finishing touches to your bathroom.
Extract: Remember - it doesn’t have to cost thousands to give your new bathroom a spa style, shop around both online and offline, most respected companies have newsletters which not only showcase new interesting products and trends but also include numerous discounts and exclusive offers – it’s worth signing up to these in advance during your research phase.
