With the constant need for change from the fast paced industry of fashion, seasonal updates and renovation are regular occurrences. However, the desire to continually change the interior of your house doesn’t come cheap, if at all. Budget constraints often mean that you are struggling to find a cost-effective way to give your bathroom an overdue renovation.
However, not all is lost; changing your lighting within a room can have a far more dramatic effect than one would expect; in many cases, completely changing the feel of the room and giving it a new lease of life. Here are our top tips for the perfect light renovation:
- When it comes to your light renovation, be sure to keep it simple; setting a mood that doesn’t overwhelm the rest of the bathroom, but that isn’t too underwhelming. Lighting should always be used to complement a room, as opposed to taking centre stage. Think simplicity and minimalism, you can always add that extra touch of pizazz if you feel as though the update is lacking. Our Hollywood mirrors could be the perfect addition to your bathroom to not only add some excitement but another source of lighting.
- Lighting can be the perfect option to emulate a certain mood, transforming a room instantly. Overly-bright lighting often accentuates flaws in interior design, as well as giving rooms overly clinical feels, with an atmosphere that is often likened to an office or hospital due to the overly bright light. Adding a dimmer switch is one of the best options, offering you the choice to flip between a brighter practical light to a more relaxed evening glow for winding down in the evenings. Mood lighting in a bathroom acts as a mean of relaxation. You could add to the atmosphere by including colour lights that are known to help you relax even further, such as blues and greens. Our collection of mirrors that offer the perfect mood lighting could provide the perfect lighting feature for your bathroom, both a practical and cost effective way to introduce mood lighting into your home.
- When investing in new lighting be sure to consider your surrounding decorations, especially the colour of your walls. In previous blogs, we’ve always suggested that a lighter colour wall is better, as it opens up your bathroom, especially if you have a smaller space to work with. The same advice applies when renovating by using light; white walls will work the best, with light reflecting, instead of being absorbed. Of course, if you have heart set on coloured walls, then using dark shades of purple and blue could work to your advantage and create a relaxing, intimate and dramatic atmosphere to your bathroom. If opulence is your aim, this may be the way forward for you!
- Last, but definitely not least, is, of course, the most cost effective option, which immediately adds atmosphere to any room with the flick of a match. As a complementary lighting option alongside your main lights, candles can offer the perfect mood lighting for a luxurious and relaxing setting to wind down in after a long day.
