Bathroom / June 24, 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.
Pretty much that is out of the ordinary and more difficult to include in a regular bathroom is considered luxurious. For example, a sunken tub can be such a feature. When used in the right environment, it can have the desired effect.There are two ways in which light can effect the overall ambiance and the look of a bathroom. On one hand, lots of light in the bathroom can be a luxury. On the other hand, subtle, accent lighting used strategically in the room can also have a similar effect.
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.
The concept of a contemporary bathroom is that it should be the one place where you can have your personal time, and the one place where you can do everything- shower, dress up, get ready for work, do your make up, use the facilities and so on. As the bathroom is a place where we spend a lot of our time, sometimes not even realizing it, it should be a place that makes us calm and looks appealing and soothing, reaching a spa-like ambience can be easily done, and with only some finishing details, but choosing what types of elements you are going to install in your bathroom will greatly influence the overall look and feel.
