Choose a style with a luxurious and appealing finish. I love using engineered stone for vanity benchtops. It’s durable and stain-resistant, yet has a beautiful, natural feel. Timber tops also look amazing, but they do need to be well-sealed and protected in order to reduce wear and tear.
What if my bathroom is dark?It’s difficult to keep plants in a bathroom with no windows or very little sunlight, but there are solutions. Start by choosing one of the plants mentioned above, which don’t require lashings of sunlight. Give them a rest in a brighter room every now and then – just make sure you don’t shock them by suddenly moving them from a dark spot straight to a hot location next to a bright window.
3. Become a keen indoor gardenerThis sure-fire way of bringing colour and style into your bathroom is super-easy and inexpensive. Pot up some lush green indoor plants into contemporary containers made from materials such as concrete or glass, and transform your bathroom into a haven of tranquility that’s bang on trend. Succulents are ideal as they love the humid conditions and will be easy to keep. Swap the pots around or plant up new containers when you feel like a change.
