Bathroom / June 17, 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.
You could also incorporate a big vanity drawer or cabinet beneath it to store all the things you need to get your glam on in the morning. It is very important how you position your lighting in the bathroom and for several reasons as well. First of all, you need to have in mind which parts of the bathroom have to have perfect lighting.
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.
Certain ornamental elements have the ability to give a bathroom a luxurious look, even if the room is not particularly spacious or if it does not have floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views. For example, an ornate mirror, a sculptural chair, etc. A combination of onyx and marble was used here to give this bathroom its unique and sophisticated appearance. However, this is not a look that suits all styles and it best left for traditional homes.
