Let There Be Light – Creating Our Forever Home


I’ve spoken quite a bit recently about revamping our house. After being here for a few years and finally deciding this is where we want to stay, it was time to put our own stamp on the place! Since we’ve already finished our living area and Hubs made me the perfect office space, it was time to tackle the bathroom. The trouble with our house is that it just doesn’t seem to let enough light in. So we decided a fresh lick of paint, in one of the darkest rooms in the house might brighten things up a little!

There’s nothing worse than trying to get ready in a dimly lit area. Not only does it put me at risk of applying far too much make-up, but it means Hubs has to be careful when he’s shaving too. We definitely don’t want any accidents! So, as well as painting we decided to replace our old spotlight bulbs with bright LEDs. It’s been so nice to get rid of that old-school warm glow and to replace it with more of a daylight feel. Daylight bulbs are a really great way to brighten the place up and they don’t break the bank!

Something missing –

As much as our bathroom felt so much better after a little decoration and fixing the lighting, we couldn’t help but feel like there was something missing. The whole room felt totally bare and clinical, it needed character! One thing we’ve always lacked in there is a good size mirror, for years we’ve made do with a small shaving mirror. With two more girls in the house though, Hubs and I knew this wouldn’t suffice for much longer!

After doing a little mirror research, we came across a great range at The beauty of these mirrors is that they have built-in LED bulbs, to add even more light to the room. With a few different styles to choose from, we were a little spoilt for choice. In the end we went for super looking, slim mirror with dot lights to add a touch of style!

All of a sudden, the darkest room in the house turned into the brightest. It’s so nice to get ready in there each morning. Hubs is happy that he no longer has to shave in a dark room, using a tiny mirror! The lights on the mirror are so handy when I’m putting on my make-up too. They give you a good idea of what you’re going to look like in the daylight, so there’ll be no more make-up mishaps for me!

  1. It looks so good. My mother and I moved into an apartment recently and the bathroom was one of the first rooms that I got to decorate. I made a Pinterest board for inspiration.

Let me know what you think...
