Bathroom / May 2, 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.
The use of mirrors is an underused element in many bathrooms. It is often a small mirror hung over the sink that is mainly utilitarian, and that is all the thought that goes into it. But when people can use the mirror to their advantage, they can elevate the feeling of a room and make it feel larger than it actually is. It is the feeling of space and that illusion that doubles the size of the room in your mind.
People do not remember the actual dimensions of the room, but they do remember the feeling that room gives them. That is whats important to remember when playing around with the space you have. Use some of these tricks to give it the illusion of spacious and stop people from feeling cluttered and claustrophobic.
When we are at the topic of combining functionality and aesthetics, have a look at this. This shower has plenty of space to move around and without the hassle of installing a regular shower bed or a bathtub. What is great about this is that the threshold can basically be installed during the making of the bathroom or the renovation, and it is made out of concrete and covered in tile.
