Contrast those hard spaces

Without a little softness here there, a bathroom is all ceramics from the tiled floors and walls to the ceramic sinks and baths. This makes it look clean and chic, but it also makes it look a little like a showroom. Finding the spots to add that contrast is important. Bath mats, hanging towels, and even soft toilet covers from places like can give you that little touch of something comfortable you need to feel like you’re in a more relaxing space. Just make sure you wash them properly as suggested in or you’ll soon lose that comfortable feeling. It doesn’t even have to be something tactile. One technique is to add curtains even to a window with blinds and keep them open just to get the aesthetic of comfort in there.

Let a little personality show

    Thanks for the tips! I agree, the bathroom is very important, and it’s very difficult to find the right balance between safety and comfort. When you have kids, all the cool things you used to do in the bathroom are turning into a hazard. So, no more candles, the bath salts have to be well hidden, unless you want someone to use them all once you turn your back for just two seconds, and so on. But I aree, some softness can create miracles.
