Bathroom decorating ideas: how to create a sleek and elegant space

Bathrooms and cloakrooms are not referred to as the “smallest room in the house” for nothing – they’re usually on the cosy side and require careful thought when it comes to bathroom decorating ideas. Sinks with built-in storage, wall-mounted toilets, corner showers and recessed shelving are all great ways to make the most of the space available. But it’s also important to maintain a sense of calmness and serenity as, for many people, a bathroom is a room to relax in.

Using glass panels as splashbacks or wall coverings is an excellent way to create a soothing vibe in a bathroom. Because they are made to measure and can be cut to fit awkward spaces, they can be installed in any room, however odd its shape. Their streamlined and uniform appearance helps to enhance a sense of flow and continuity, avoiding the visual choppiness that can occur when too many different materials are used.

Here are more ways in which glass wall coverings can help to create an elegant space…
