If Valentine's Day has left you feeling all warm and gooey inside, perhaps it's time to lavish some of that love on your home?
Your bathroom plays an important part in maintaining a happy home, as it's the one place you can rely on to get away from it all. But perhaps you simply haven't been paying it enough attention recently?
If you don't love your bathroom, your bathroom will ultimately fall out of love with you, becoming a cold and somewhat unwelcoming place you only visit when you really have to. And as we all know, the relationship we have with our bathroom should be much more than that. Luckily, help is at hand...
Continuing the love story
Here at VictoriaPlum.com, we want to rekindle that passion you used to have for your bathroom, helping you to transform it from a simple functional space into one you simply love spending time in.
We've created 3 inspirational bathroom mood boards, with different options to suit your tastes and needs. Whether you simply want to spruce up your existing bathroom with new paint, tiles and accessories, or whether you want to carry out a full bathroom refurbishment, you'll find some great ideas right here.
Chalky pastels and wood accents
If your bathroom suite isn't that old, but your bathroom decor is simply feeling a little tired or outdated, a simple spruce up could be all that's required to make you fall in love with it again.
A new wall colour could be just the job, and this year chalky pastels are proving popular, with shades such as our Marzipan and Elderflower Cordial paint bringing a fresh yet muted feel. Or, for a more handmade appearance, why not try our new Artisan tile collection from Laura Ashley?
Add warm wood accents to bring a more natural element to your decor, with dark walnut furniture or bamboo accessories, and finish off with flowers that thrive in a moisture-rich environment, like peace lilies.
Make a statement
If your passion knows no bounds, and you're the type of person who needs to be up with all the latest trends, why not make a statement in your bathroom? It's all about turning heads and wowing your friends, with bold, brushed gold brassware, sleek black marble accessories and a large wall cabinet.
For a touch of personalisation, create your own feature wall with multi-coloured patchwork tiles, or use a bold paint colour like Royal Peacock. Add a dash of greenery with ferns or a swiss cheese plant.
With a new and exciting bathroom decor, it'll certainly spice up your home life!
Subtle metallic sheens and relief pattern
Bring that sparkle back to your bathroom with subtle metallic sheens. Copper bathroom accessories are a quick and easy way to let your bathroom shine, whilst a new, contemporary style tap can make your bath feel like new again.
If you’re taking things a step further, look for shower enclosures with polished rust-resistant aluminium profiles, like our Premium easy clean quadrant shower enclosure pictured above.
Relief patterns are set to be big in 2017 and can be easily applied to your bathroom, whether through a waffle style towel set, patterned accessories or even textured tiles, like our Pure white wave tiles.
With our final mood board, we decided to slow things down a little and focus on those quiet, reflective moments when you simply feel like locking the door and getting away from it all for an hour or two. To create the perfect relaxing retreat, a freestanding bath (like the Harrison bath pictured above) will provide the perfect setting in which to lie back and let all your troubles wash over you.
To get the mood just right, colours should be subdued and candles are a must, but you can still add a more natural element with mineral grey accessories and grey gloss tiles. Recapture some "me time" and fall in love all over again with your relaxing, luxury bathroom.
