My neighbour came round the other day because he wanted advice on renovating his bathroom and what finishes he should choose. He lives in the identical flat to ours, two floors below us, so I immediately started to envisage our own bathroom and how much better it could look and feel. I often dream about my perfect bathroom and having lived in flats for the last ten years with small, poky, windowless ones, my wish list is long…
Window with a view
Oh the joy it would bring! Lying in the bath being able to look out and having all that natural light – I miss that so much in our current bathroom.
Space for a chair or stool
I love the idea of being able to hang out in my bathroom, making the everyday ritual of washing that much more relaxing.
The perfect floor
I love the feel of vinyl flooring underfoot as it is so soft and warm to the touch and has the added bonus of being very practical in terms of cleaning. In fact, adding a vinyl floor to my bathroom was the only change I made when I moved into my current flat.

I see a bath bridge as a shelf that you can decorate with flowers, beautiful bottles, a jar of Eucalyptus; anything that will make the bathroom feel more special.
A beautiful mirror to hang above the sink to add character to the room.
Plants, plants and more plants
Breath life into the bathroom with dashes of green, which add colour and texture.
What does your dream bathroom mood board look like?
