How to take the perfect picture of your bathroom
To get the best out of your picture, preparation is key. So follow these top tips for the best possible photos:
1. Make sure your room is well-lit
Light can make or break a photograph, so filling your beautiful new bathroom with plenty of light will go a long way to showing everything off at its best. Also, try to avoid using the flash on your camera. Turn the lights on instead and let in as much natural light as possible.
Lots of artificial and natural light is key
2. Try and fit everything in
You’ve put a lot of time and effort into making your bathroom the best it can be, so make sure you show it all off! Try and position your camera so you get all of your new products in. This gives others a great idea of how you’ve used your space.
Try to get everything into the shot
3. Remove any obstacles
As with anything, people want to be able to see the whole package, so try and move around any obstacles that might stop you from being able to get the full product, or products, into the photo.
Don't let anything get in the way of a good picture
4. Safe angles
Sometimes you might have to tilt and twist to fit everything into a picture, but getting a good angle is a great place to start when taking your photo. Try to keep the camera straight, tilting forwards slightly if you need to, but never left or right. Remember, if it's possible to take a step back, you can always crop an image to get rid of anything unnecessary.
Wow! That's a popular bath mat! Take time to get the best angle
5. Don't add filters or effects
We know how you want to show your bathroom off in the best possible light, but remember to keep the original, unfiltered image. When you send us your picture, we’d recommend providing a version without filters or effects applied.
Don't add filters to your bathroom pictures. Let your original colour choices do the talking
6. Send a before and an after photograph
This isn’t essential but it’s great to see the transformation, so if you have a picture of your bathroom before the refurbishment, we'd love to see that too. It'll tell a real story!
Don't forget to share those all-important "before" bathroom pictures
7. Keep the toilet seat down
No one wants to see what's inside your loo! Closing the lid on your toilet not only makes the photo look a lot tidier, but also shows off your design better too.
Keep that lid shut!
