When people think mouldings they generally associate them with hallways, entry’s, living areas, doorway architraves and skirting boards, but one place the power of mouldings can transform a space from wow to “WOW” is in the bathroom.
With a small space like a bathroom, you can add architectural details which make a huge impact, without leaving your pockets empty. You can easily add sophistication and personality and create a beautiful space that will be unique and the envy of your friends.
We are often asked how to best use mouldings in a bathroom, so we have compiled some of our favourite bathroom designs and some tips on how to get the look in your home.
This bathroom is the epitome of class and oozes a relaxed sophistication. The design is relatively easy to achieve by applying some simple wainscoting treatment to the walls, framing with a chair rail and skirting board and voila you have an effortless styled bathroom like this.
Add Wall Paper
If you’re really looking for drama, adding wallpaper above your wall panelling or wainscoting will give you a spectacular bathroom you can be proud of.
Make your windows POP with Architraves
Choose a thick architrave with lots of detail to frame your windows and sill nosing to give more depth, and create a stand out feature.
Add Lining Boards
This look is perfect for a coastal or country styled home and brings an added element of warmth to your bathroom. Lining Boards are moisture resistant and would be your best choice to use in a bathroom and can run either horizontally for a shiplap look or vertically to give you a beadboard look. If you decide on VJ Board be mindful not to use it in splash zones as MDF products don’t expand or contract like real wood does, meaning that it’s more susceptible to moisture damage if water is allowed to penetrate the surface.
Simply add Skirting
Instead of using the typical finish with a full wall of tiles, or a tile border as the skirting, why not try a skirting board to finish your look.
Add some Curves
If you’re lucky enough to have a beautiful arch window, or you’re ready to tackle having one installed, a custom architrave will frame the window and draw the focus to the feature masterpiece in the space.
