Part 1 – Inspiration
Gone are the days when functionality was the rule of thumb for bathroom design. Bathrooms are now one of the top two reasons why people buy a home (the other is the kitchen,) and people are seeking a space that is just as welcoming and comfortable as the rest of the house. This is primarily true of the master bath as it is the bathroom that gets the most extended use.
So, how do you transform your master bathroom from a well designed room into your favorite room in the house? By turning your attention to unusual ideas for personalization! In this six-part series we are going to share some fabulous ideas about how to accomplish the goal. Some of our suggestions are standard fare, but most of these ideas show you how to create a space in ways you’ve never considered. So, grab a cup of coffee and read on to learn how it’s done. The posts are short and to the point so you’ll whiz through all six posts in no time!
Inspiration – People typically think of an office or kitchen as the ideal place to feature inspirational elements. We suggest the bathroom. It’s the place that you both start and end your day. Morning and evening are excellent times to be reminded of your dreams and ambitions. Here are two great ways to incorporate motivation into your bathroom.
Hang wall art that features inspirational quotes and messages. Home design trends brought these pieces to the forefront a few years ago, so it is now easy to find them in mainstream stores. They are typically available in three formats. Framed artwork, canvas with no frame, and adhesive wall stencils.
You can also hang artwork that represents where you want to be in the next five years. Visualization is an enormously effective way to realize your dreams. Seeing what you want makes you want it more and that makes you work harder. Now, imagine seeing it at least twice every day! Over the course of one year that’s 720 exposures to the desires of your heart. An example of what to feature is a wall hanging of a place where you want to move. Perhaps you feel that your dream life simply isn’t possible unless you live in Colorado. Hang a large print of a gorgeous image of Colorado and get a little further along with you’re your plan each day by seeing it. Another idea is to feature artwork that represents a skill you want to develop. Let’s say you are obsessed with becoming a photographer. Hang a large print that features vintage cameras or an abstract painting of a photographer at work.
