Downstairs Toilet – How to create an bold, eye catching downstairs toilet

Oh the down stairs toilet, often an after thought and lacking in life and personality. An old client of mine wanted a conversation room, although the rest of the house was very traditional, in the downstairs loo he wanted something more quirky that would get people talking. It got me thinking, we should all have a place in our home where we really push ourselves and what better way than to wallpaper the ceiling!

Below I have created a couple of schemes to show how you can get creative with such small spaces, an opportunity to push yourself out of your comfort zone and BE BOLD! Using vibrant colours to give a twist on some classic panelling and to finish it off, some beautiful patterned wallpaper on the ceiling drawing the colours from the walls and creating a real feature! Use simple elegant accessories such as this mirror or wall lights to keep it classy!
