Bathroom / June 26, 2018 / .
It is of course hard to judge the aesthetic of a particular design, as tastes vary greatly from person to person, But nowadays, almost every design, at least in everyday homes, has become about incorporating functionality and design and making them work in total harmony. What is not the modern bathroom is more about the practical use than it is about intricate décor of the room. The use of different materials was never more apparent, and different textures and colors make the room seem more interesting while still keeping that simple design.
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.
No spa is complete without a high-end shower head. Picture one of those rainfall showerheads that are oversized and offer a variety of spray settings. One thing that spas are known for is their thick, plush, and toasty warm towels. Why not create that same atmosphere in your own bathroom with a heated towel rail. You will find a wide variety of options available allowing you to pick one that works with the bathrooms décor and space.
A lot of times, the accessories are the ones that give a space its character. For example, a small but chic bathroom rug with a soft and pleasant texture, a mirrored wall, long and heavy curtains or decorative stones used as décor elements are all exquisite examples. Another feature of luxury bathrooms can be a skylight. Basically anything that adds natural light and makes the bathroom look and feel more airy and bright can allow it to look luxurious, interesting and sophisticated.
