french bathroom accessories

French Bathroom Accessories

Creating the perfect french style bathroom can be quite easy. It's basically down to light, natural, rustic tones; mixed linen textures and french style bathroom accessories. You can really open up a room and create the illusion of a bigger space by simply applying light tones to the walls. Drape light linen curtains to the windows, hanging them so they drop to the floor creates an airy effect. Add an old style chair in the corner, a traditional french style rattan chair or a country style stool would be perfect. Then go to town on the accessories.

Whilst subtlety is the key, detail is also as importance. Simple cream, white accessories are great as they are subtle enough to keep the style and look but also detailed enough to create the wow factor once noticed. There are many options to chose from based on the size of the room. If your short of space then a wall mounted cream toilet roll holder would be ideal, but if you have ample space an want to add a bit of an unusual wow factor then a free standing toilet roll holder is perfect.

A free standing towel rail is perfect for not only adding the much sought french style but is also perfect as a clothes rail to keep them off the floor when discarded. The free standing towel rail comes in a strong cream painted iron, with three good sized rails and a lovely scrolled design shelf at the base. perfect for keeping lotion, potions, slippers......... it also looks fantastically rustic french when perched next to the stool or rattan chair.

Adding french bathroom style vintage metal signs and plaques only enhances the look. Popping a blue bathroom sign or ladies powder room sign on the door or a collection of them on a wall really makes a statement. This looks fantastic in a really good sized bathroom or simply lean one or two of them on widow Sile's or on the sink if your short of space.

Then adding a bit of vintage glamour, glass and mirror the bathroom is transformed. Adding a vintage etched glass soap dispenser or free standing glass soap dish adds a touch of nostalgia. A diamond mirror really lifts light into the room and gives it that final vintage glamorous french touch.

Hope this helps, if you have any questions or are looking for inspiration for your own bathroom then please feel free to contact me (if you have a picture of the area you want to transform this would be great). I'm more than happy to help you.
