If you are doing a bathroom renovation, then a great start is to create a mood board. A mood board is a collection of visuals that helps create a style or concept. A good interior designer will create one for your project to capture your feedback after an initial consultation or you can do it with online tools like the ADP mood board style sourcebook.

When it comes to using mood boards for your reno or build, there’s two different ways you can go about it. The first is using a mood board for general inspiration and the second is using a mood board for putting real products, colours & styles in one place.
If you aren’t using the design service available at Designer Bathrooms Plus you can create your own mood board with these steps.
1. Collate Images. Collect inspiration images on Pinterest or Instagram.
Each app allows you to save images into ‘boards,’ so you can keep ideas separated by styles and themes.
Search for images beyond the bathroom – look for other rooms, landscapes, colours, textures and products. Apps like Pinterest are great because they use keywords to source a variety of images for you!
2. Choose Your Mood Board – There are three ways to view a mood board:
Leave your images together on your newly created Pinterest/Instagram board – this allows you to scroll through whenever you like!
Save your images & transfer them to a blank Canva page – this allows you to create a collage & place images wherever you like!
Print your images & paste them onto a blank piece of cardboard similar to the above step – this is just more tangible!
3. Find Real Products – Once you are sufficiently inspired, you can move on to the specifics i.e. finding your products.
A great place to start is our Inspiration & Popular Style pages.
Here you’ll find a range of bathroom themes, which lead you to a whole range of products specifically curated to suit that theme.
4. Putting it all together – Save these images of the products you like & remove the background on each.
You can use Remove for a free background remover software or if you have Canva Pro you can also use their background remover tool!
Once you have removed all the backgrounds on your images, upload them to Canva so that you can arrange them on a blank page.
5. Add the final touches – Once you have all your products on a page, it’s time to add other items such as tiles, colour swatches, lighting, towels etc.
This allows you to get a feel for the room as a whole!
