Bathroom / June 5, 2018 /
Once our team decide on a layout with a customer, we recommend compiling a wish list of features, taking into consideration the practical requirements for each room. Thinking about the number of people the bathroom will accommodate will help you decide practical touches such as the need for double basins or showerheads, storage requirements and the number of towel rails in each bathroom.
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.
