Bathroom / June 23, 2018 / .
One of the biggest benefits of building a new home is the freedom to do what you like, without restriction of existing fixtures and fittings. This is a perfect time to install underfloor heating, saving you the costly exercise of retrofitting it into an existing bathroom down the track. Building from new also gives you the greatest flexibility when it comes to creating space, by way of recessed accessories and storage. By building your toilet cistern and cabinetry into the wall, your finish will not only look sleek and stylish, you will have also clawed back valuable space that would normally be lost with freestanding fittings.
One of the most used and most important elements of the bathroom will of course be the toilet. Simple, clear lines, monochromatic and above all functional. These are one of the main characteristics of modern, or better said contemporary bathrooms, but there are still choices to make and reasons why to make them.
No matter the bathroom you are designing, it is vital to get the layout right. There are many factors that make up a good layout so when planning your perfect bathroom, consider the little details; how much space is between the toilet, vanity and shower? Is there sample room to move around and dry yourself? Do your doors have enough space to open and close? These little things will all come together to create the perfect bathroom layout.

Whether it is because a bathroom is unusually spacious, decorated with expensive materials, stylish accent details or filled with light, our intuition tells us there is something luxurious about it.
