A guide to choosing bathrooms designs

A bathroom is a very important part of any space, and there are many things that one can do to enhance its style, along with ensuring its functionality. There are many bath designs available on the market today, and you can customise bath sizes, bath fixtures, shower rails, toilet seats, and bath cabinets to suit your personal tastes and luxury requirements. This article provides a guide to choosing bathroom designs.

Elements for a designer bathroom

A bathroom which has been well-designed will include good fixtures, lights, bathroom tiles, and other decor ideas. There are several fixtures available and the prices may vary, depending on the brand, features, and styles. For example, you can choose to have regular wash basins in the your bathroom or designer ones which come in glass, square shapes and are wider in size as well. These look more luxurious than the plain wash basins. Similarly, you can extend the mirror glass to the length of the wall instead of opting for small mirrors that look plain and simple. If you wish to add luxury to your bathroom, ensure that you place false ceiling lights or decorative wall lamps on either side of the walls around your wash basin area. Placing two designer sinks gives a grander look if the space is bigger, and also allows more than one person to use the area at the same time. When opting for your toilet seats and tubs, try something unique by choosing dark colours and blend your wall tiles with decorative glass designs. You can place a designer mirror instead of a plain one. You can also choose to place your tub in the centre of the bathroom. If you have more space, you can try to use combined bath solutions such as a glass shower cubical at one end, while a Jacuzzi tub placed at the centre or other corner of the bathroom. If you want extra light, opt for a glass roof above your tub as this will allow natural daylight to fall into your bathroom. Furthermore, at the same time, it will maintain your privacy.

Bathroom décor

You can enhance your bathroom by using candles, elegant diffusers, decorative towels and soap baskets, bathroom rugs, laundry baskets, potpourri, and other fancy items which add an extra element to your bathroom. If you enjoy relaxing yourself for long hours in your tub, you can place hidden music speakers, or create a small area which contains your favourite liquor chocolates, along with your wine, to sip through your soak.
