Bathroom Ideas - Slate, Grey and White

I have been dying to decorate our bathroom, it's one of the rooms we haven't touched since we moved in and it really needs a revamp.

I want something modern, something easy to maintain and lots of storage! I have been scanning good old Pinterest and Instagram for some inspiration and through my research, I  have had some major decor envy from some very beautiful bathrooms! 

I have decided to go for a grey/slate colour scheme with a hint of white, this way I can always easily freshen up or even add new colours in if I want something different. 

Luckily the bathroom isn't a major job, no building work is required but I may have to borrow my brother in law for some electrical help. 

1. New lighting was a definite must have for us as it's just a light bulb in its socket. I love this light from Ikea and at £40 it's not too bad in price either. It's very modern but it also has a slight old age feel to it which I love.

2.  I wanted to go grey, but due to our bathroom being long and narrow, the dark slate grey I really wanted was changed for Johnstone's paint in China Clay - £27.99. To help maximise the feeling of space to our oddly narrowed shaped bathroom. 

3. I want the bathroom to feel calming and natural, a place of relaxation and serenity. One of my goals this year is to bring in more foliage to the house and so I think a white orchid will bring in the perfect amount of tranquillity to the overall design. 

4. Dunelm Mill always has some lovely homeware items and storage is a big thing for me. When I saw this toilet roll basket (Seagrass basket £15.00) I knew it would be a perfect fit and storage solution to the ugly toilet rolls just stacked on the side. My 3-year-old loves to play with them and kick them all over the place so this way they are out of the way and hopefully less interesting!  

5. Shower curtains are literally the biggest nuisance for me, but due to the way our bath and shower head is, we have to have one. I can't wait until the day we can have one of those walk-in wet room showers!

At the moment I have a thing for Damask print and this one at £8.00 from Asda is perfect. 

6. Lastly, this slate hand soap dispenser will be a perfect addition to the room, you can find it at Dunelm Mill for £14.00

Luckily the flooring doesn't need changing, I had some new rustic wooden lino put down before Christmas. I am still looking for a mirror but may have to wait until I've painted and decorated to then decide on the shape and size I want.

I'm hoping to get this project done in the next month and will share with you on the blog the final look.  

Tell me what colour schemes you've gone for in your bathroom.
