Bathroom / June 18, 2018 / Oriane.
The right combination of textures has the ability to make a bathroom look luxurious. Step on the shiny floor tiles and then onto the zebra accent rug, touch the soft and delicate curtains and let yourself be enveloped in luxury.
It is no secret that home renovations are big business. Homeowners seem to constantly be looking for ways to improve and better their homes, whether it is a major project or just a few simple design changes. When it comes to the most popular renovations done, bathrooms consistently top the list. Transforming the bathroom into a tranquil spa-like retreat is a common request with homeowners.
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.
Depending on how much space you have and how much pain in the neck you want to have with maintenance, you can opt either for a wall-mounted or a floor-mounted toilet. The function is the same of course, and both have their ups and downs. If you do not want to struggle with a lot of cleaning and want to save up on space, go for the wall-mounted toilet; it is a bit more complicated and costly to install but the results will be worth it.
