Bathroom / June 18, 2018 / .
With the bathroom being a central hub to ready yourself for the day ahead, and a place to unwind in the tub at the end of it, it is important to ensure you have adequate lighting for both practical purposes and ambience. Ideally, your first point of call for lighting should be natural light. Think large, operable windows or even a skylight to help increase the light and airy feel of your room. For the general lighting, simple downlights or flush mounts are flattering for any bathroom, however to avoid unsightly and inconvenient shadows being cast, avoid placing downlights directly above the vanity or mirror. Instead, opt for task lighting around the mirrors and vanity to ensure consistent, flattering light right where you need it.
Nearly every luxury and high-end bathroom has the feeling of being spacious. Notice there that I did not say that the bathroom was spacious itself. It provides a feeling of being spacious. It feels orderly, light, tall, roomy, but even in confined spaces, you can play around with the room to give all those who visit that feeling of spaciousness.
No spa is complete without a high-end shower head. Picture one of those rainfall showerheads that are oversized and offer a variety of spray settings. One thing that spas are known for is their thick, plush, and toasty warm towels. Why not create that same atmosphere in your own bathroom with a heated towel rail. You will find a wide variety of options available allowing you to pick one that works with the bathrooms décor and space.
Choosing a cozy bathtub is essential. If the space allows it, make sure to not skip on the tub. Even though showers are much quicker and effective, some good essential oils and bath salts can cure almost any ache you might have. Easy to maintain, geometric, clear cut bathtubs are a perfect solution. And notice for just a few added touches completely transforms the look of this corner of the bathroom from plain and boring to fun and modern.
