Bathroom / June 1, 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.
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.
