To eliminate dark corners of your bathroom install brighter bulbs. Consider switching to CFL light bulbs to save money on energy consumption and they emit a whiter brighter light.
Usually when you read about bathroom design ideas the master bath is the focus. While your ensuite can serve as your own personal escape it’s not the only washroom that deserves consideration. A well-thought-out guest bathroom for example can be both a gift to your family and friends and a source of never-ending compliments.

Niches in the wall will create visual interest and will help avoid objects protruding into valuable floor area. Use this same trick in showers and bathtubs to hold soap and bath accessories. If you’re renovating your bathroom create niches in the shower wall and use tile inside the niches for a custom look.

As long as you’ve got the eye you’ll be able to make it work with almost anything. Go bold bright and utilize patterned mosaics and tiles in your designs this year; a certain winner.
