The bathroom ambience - the problem

The bathroom is not only an essential part of the home, but also one in which you can relax and cleanse both body and soul.

Visualise your bathroom. If what you're seeing are wet towels on the floor, an overflowing wash basket, ghastly orange tiles, toothpaste stains in the basin and a mouldy shower curtain, perhaps it's time to transform this room. And the good news is that it is really not expensive to do this.

Bathroom ambience - solution

You can paint the tiles, put in a small bookcase with a row of aromatic candles on top, some dried flowers and air freshener - and you can scrub down the shower curtain with a special detergent. There are also special cleaning agents to make your mirrors, surfaces and windows sparkling and bright – and a pleasure to see.

There is nothing more pleasant after a heavy day at work than to lie back in a bubble bath with a glass of champagne in your hand, soft music playing in the background and aromatic candles giving a romantic ambience to the whole scene. Sound good?

It won't take more than a few minutes to create this scene. And you will emerge feeling relaxed and pampered. Isn't that what bathrooms are for?
