Make it greenGreen walls are so hot right now – and they’re particularly effective in wet areas, since the steam and damp helps to create the humid conditions that these plants thrive in. They look spectacular, too – giving you the sense of being in a garden. Without being in a garden.

WALLSVertical gardenA living garden in your bathroom will guarantee that it becomes the go-to room for pampering. Indoor plants help filter the air, so an indoor garden is quite literally a breath of fresh air. Even better, it’s relatively cheap too. If there’s enough light in the space, exotic indoor plants love the humidity of a wet zone. A grouping of them, even a garden wall as pictured here, will create a visual reminder of the peace and quiet found in nature. Plus, you can reflect on all this while you luxuriate in your bath. Heaven.DIY TIP: Vertical gardens can be bought in kits and easily fixed to any structural walls, including brick, concrete, wood or sheet metal.COST: Kits start from $149; these include plastic panels, individual root wrappers and a drip line. (Plants are bought separately; take into account that their costs vary widely.)More: 15 Vertical Gardens With a Creative Edge

5. Go greenIt’s a hot trend right now – plants in the bathroom. This takes that trend one step further with an entire wall of greenery.

Think outside of the boxCreate your look or design – tear out sheets from magazines, bookmark websites, and gather inspirational images into a Houzz ideabook (be sure to include vanity ideas, lighting options, mirrors, paint colours, and tile possibilities).Step out the space. Measure the perimeter walls as a starting point to roughly gauge if your wishlist items can be accommodated in the space. Meet with a builder or structural engineer to confirm the existing condition of the space: consider the ceiling, walls and floor. If you are going open-plan, check there are no load-bearing walls. The redesign of an old bathroom means there will often be ‘surprises’ lurking beneath that cladding or floor. Build a little ‘give’ into your budget for unplanned repairs. The worst that can happen is that you’ll have leftover cash at the end for a tapware or towel upgrade!
