Bathroom design features are a hot topic in nearly every luxury home project. You should never underestimate the importance of a well designed bathroom in your new home. It is a place where you get ready for the day ahead and maybe end the day with a relaxing hot soak. You may want a sleek modern look, traditional or in between.
Let’s have a look at some of the most popular design trends.
A large deep freestanding bath has been a popular feature for many years and doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of disappearing soon. A lot of people use the freestanding bath as a style statement centrepiece to design the rest of the bathroom around. A freestanding bath is certainly one of the best ways to create a unique bathroom that will get noticed.
The fact that freestanding baths are fully finished, it makes them flexible for placement, which means that you are not restricted where you want to locate it. Designers recommend to place a freestanding bath in a corner or in the centre of the bathroom. It does not only make the tub the focal point of the room, but it is also practical. Additionally, since a freestanding bath is fully finished on all sides, it is easier to clean because you just have to walk around it and easily clean it from the back and front.
Taking a shower is supposed to be a relaxing activity. Let’s face it, everyone enjoys a long hot shower at the end of the day. With a double shower there is no more waiting around for someone to get out, no more family members telling you to hurry up. You can just jump in the bathroom with your better half to save time. They also give the user the freedom to choose a single shower head or both.
The double shower is definitely growing in popularity.
Above Counter Vanity Basins
Above counter vanity basins are on trend and create a beautiful statement in your bathroom. They have the ability to transform an ordinary vanity into a designer show piece. These types of basins are placed atop the vanity and are basically exposed from all sides. They also allow for a lot of cabinet storage underneath. The good part about these basins, is that not only do they look good, but they are extremely easy to install.
Porcelain tiling has gained popularity as a flooring material that is eye catching, cost-effective and extremely durable. Porcelain is a hard wearing material that resists stains, scratches, fading and chipping. The versatility of the material makes it a superb choice for the bathroom area. If you want good looks, with very little effort then porcelain is the material for you.
