Bathroom / June 21, 2018 / .
One of the biggest benefits of building a new home is the freedom to do what you like, without restriction of existing fixtures and fittings. This is a perfect time to install underfloor heating, saving you the costly exercise of retrofitting it into an existing bathroom down the track. Building from new also gives you the greatest flexibility when it comes to creating space, by way of recessed accessories and storage. By building your toilet cistern and cabinetry into the wall, your finish will not only look sleek and stylish, you will have also clawed back valuable space that would normally be lost with freestanding fittings.
And speaking of showers, what about a Roman shower stall? Inspired by the original historical designs, these are a modern interpretation of those and treat the shower as a sort of alcove, as a separate room instead of just a partition. This concept can suit spacious bathrooms but also smaller ones. Find the type of Roman shower stall that best suits your own bathroom and adapt it to your preferences.
The use of mirrors is an underused element in many bathrooms. It is often a small mirror hung over the sink that is mainly utilitarian, and that is all the thought that goes into it. But when people can use the mirror to their advantage, they can elevate the feeling of a room and make it feel larger than it actually is. It is the feeling of space and that illusion that doubles the size of the room in your mind.
A bathroom that is as spacious as this one is inevitably luxurious, regardless of its design. But there is more to this than just square footage. A bathroom can create the illusion of space by being minimalist and employing strategic features. Because bathrooms are usually small and do not have large windows either because of the lack of space or for privacy reasons, the views from here are almost in existent. So when a bathroom has such huge windows and wonderful views, it stands out as being luxurious.
