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.
Luxurious bathrooms feature natural materials on their walls and floors and marble is one of them. However, this is an acquired taste, especially if the marble is used extensively. The finishes and textures play an important role in the overall design of the bathroom. This particular one features a textured wallpaper on the walls that almost looks like stone and contrasts with the chromed details and shiny elements.
