А home is never complete without a stylish and functional bathroom. The bathroom is the centre of one’s housing, an imperative for a normal, everyday functioning. Contemporary or traditional, one can say that the bathroom is equally important as any other room in the house.
People nowadays spend a fortune to remodel their bathrooms to best fit their requirements. Everything comes with a price, thus it’s not a coincidence that the more you invest, the better results you’ll get in the long run. It’s not wise to skip quality products when it comes to the bathroom because later on, you might end up paying more since you’ll need to repair everything quite soon. Making wise choices starts with doing a thorough research. Depending whether you will renovate or completely start from scratch, pay attention to the style you want to implement before you start working.
If you’re keen on luxurious and unique materials, be prepared to pay more. Marble or solid glass counter-tops are the best and the most durable and you’ll have quality guaranteed. Before doing any furnishing with bathroom products, you should decide on the tiles – what kind of tiles you’ll use and whether you’ll have them completely take up the bathroom walls, or just parts of them. This is really important as tiles set the mood for the rest of the décor regarding colour, but also quantity. In some cases, you can add diversity and charm by playing with different colours of tiles, thus reducing your opportunity for additional decorative items.
Don’t forget to consider your daily routine. Knowing what you need can help you with the decision making process. For instance, the place around the sink is most frequently used for the usual everyday activities such as shaving, grooming or applying makeup, therefore a good lighting strategy is essential. It is best to put main lighting on the bathroom ceiling, or right above the door, and additional light fixtures above the mirror so that you can illuminate the cabinet and other bathroom products in that particular area. This will inevitably add to the charm and functionality of the bathroom, since one source of light is definitely not practical enough.
Finally, if you decide to choose wisely and opt for quality and functionality all in one, you will notice that when the pieces are well chosen, they click together and form the luxurious look we all strive for.
