Bathroom / June 5, 2018 / .
Once our team decide on a layout with a customer, we recommend compiling a wish list of features, taking into consideration the practical requirements for each room. Thinking about the number of people the bathroom will accommodate will help you decide practical touches such as the need for double basins or showerheads, storage requirements and the number of towel rails in each bathroom.
Bringing the outdoors in is another way you can make the washroom feel more spa-like. This means greenery such as flowers and plants. Just be sure to pick a variety that does well indoors. When it comes to the color palette of your washroom, opt for colors that are soft, neutral, and calming. The most popular colors tend to be blue, beige, white, and soft greens. These colors can be carried through the paint, tiles, trim, and cabinetry. When it comes to fixtures, chrome works beautifully with the soft colors.
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.
Place a large mirror along the wall, or break up the wall with several smaller mirrors. Do what you can with mirrors to avoid those stark 4 walls. That simple act can remove the feeling of being closed in, and it makes your room seem larger and more accommodating than it otherwise might feel. Architects have long understood the concept of space and how we think about it. They play with positive and negative spaces in designing anything from rooms, to houses, to parks, to entire city blocks. They understand that the space in between is sometimes more important than the actual structure itself.
