Bathroom / June 24, 2018 / .
People do not remember the actual dimensions of the room, but they do remember the feeling that room gives them. That is whats important to remember when playing around with the space you have. Use some of these tricks to give it the illusion of spacious and stop people from feeling cluttered and claustrophobic.
Finally, your bathroom is a great space to add your own style. In custom designed homes, there is a move away from the classic stale, white tiled bathroom. At Precision Homes we are known for integrating indoor and outdoor spaces – even within a bathroom. Many of our customers are choosing a more creative approach to lighting, windows and layouts, to shift their bathrooms from a functional room to a beautiful custom-built space to relax and unwind. When talking to your builders about designing and styling your bathroom, powder room or ensuite, get creative. Look at dramatic colour schemes, feature tiling and tap wear options. Enjoy the freedom you have to create a space that is as unique and individual as your own personal style.
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.
Towel rails give you a place to hang towels, so they are out of the way, they can work as a design feature in the space and can warm your towel to the perfect temperature. As an added tip, you will want to go ahead and splurge a bit on your linens, opting for thick and lush towels, just like in a high-end spa.
