Bathroom vanities come in an almost limitless variety of sizes, materials and price ranges. Finding the one that’s right for your bathroom design is an essential step in creating a relaxing and elegant bathroom space in your home, so you’ll want to consider a number of factors before making a decision.

The Freestanding Bath Chic and contemporary, a freestanding bath is guaranteed to add longevity to your bathroom. Without any wall support, it is a style that dominates and makes for a strong design feature, be it a traditional clawfoot or pedestal bath in any of its variations. When it comes to installation there are certain logistics to keep in mind. There are practicalities that must be addressed in terms of its installation that requires research and time committed to detail as well as technical awareness about plumbing and drainage. A freestanding bath is more successful when it is fitted as part of a brand new bathroom makeover rather than adding one to an existing bathroom. When installing, ensure there is adequate space between the wall and the bath to ensure easy cleaning. Map it out so you’re able to get around freely with a mop. Freestanding or built-in bath?

Bathroom Lighting Tips. One of the busiest rooms in the house, the bathroom needs careful consideration when it comes to lighting. From applying makeup to brushing your teeth, there are numerous things you do in the bathroom which rely on clear visibility. Lighting is a key consideration but bathroom lights are about more than just clarity of vision – they’re about atmosphere too. Choosing and installing light fixtures for a bathroom requires a bit more thought than other rooms as it contains water.

The bathroom mirror is the kind of decorating detail that should receive far more attention than it does. After all, you look at it every day. It provides a critical function for daily grooming but is also a relatively easy way to inject a dose of personality and style into even the smallest bathrooms. Aside from soaring ceilings and gigantic windows, there is no better friend to a small space than a well-placed bathroom mirror. Expanding walls, amplifying light, breaking up visual clutter, mirrors can be used to solve most any bathroom design dilemma. Sometimes a bathroom mirror complements the bathroom by adding character and spark to a classic or clinical space. Other times the mirror itself plays second fiddle to a dramatic sink or tile. Whatever the case, choosing a mirror can be a fun and a low-effort way to decorate your bathroom. Bathroom Mirror Tips Create another window by placing a mirror next to or across from the real deal. The reflection maximises the effect of natural light and pleasant outdoor views, allowing you to appreciate them from multiple angles. Hanging a mirror is a lot like hanging art.

When carrying out a bathroom renovation, you need to stop focusing on just the function of the room. You need to broaden your scope to incorporate how energy flows throughout the room. This is what Feng Shui about; using the design and architecture of the room to enhance its flow of energy. The Bath Co Gold Coast shares a few items that you need to place in your bathroom if you opt to incorporate the Feng Shui style while renovating your bathroom.

From this, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the light playing on the walls every time you are in the bathroom. The premise here is that the light show will eliminate any negative fire energies that might be emanating from the south. Metal Wind Chimes Proponents of the Feng Shui style all agree that the tingling of the metal pipes in a bathroom create a relaxing atmosphere as well as wading off any negative energy that might be in the room. We suggest that you place the metal chimes in the east, south, or southeast direction of the bathroom. Also, ensure that the chimes are not adorned
