5 – Art and Mirrors
Art isn’t just for living rooms and sleeping quarters. Bathrooms, too, can benefit from a painting or picture. And, as Zetser explains, strategically placed art can make the bathroom look larger.
“We also like to put art in the bathroom so it reflects in the mirror,” she says. “So when you walk in, the mirror has the sink right below it and the light above it. Then you have the art behind it, and you see the art in the mirror and it makes the bathroom look bigger.”
6 – The curtain versus door debate
You might not believe it, but Zetser suggests replacing sliding shower doors with – gasp! – a white shower curtain.
“A sliding door makes the bathroom look old, so I recommend getting a shower curtain,” she says. “They make the bathroom look tight. They close off the tub.”
7 – To bath mat or not to bath mat
Bath mats were once staples of the bathroom, but Zetser says they’re an option in the modern bath, depending heavily on the floor beneath it.
“If the floor is not updated, you might want to cover with a bath mat,” she says. “But if it’s a beautiful floor you do not want to cover it up.”
8 – Colour
Like the rest of the bathroom, the colour of the walls should mimic a hotel bathroom, exuding a feeling of calm.
“Most of the time, a good colour is light blue or beige or light grey,” Zetser says. “But sometimes painting it a dark colour makes it moody and more expensive-looking. But you should paint it to match the rest of the bathroom.”
