Bathroom / April 24, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
Lighting is often overlooked in bathrooms, but your budget doesn’t need to stretch to a professionally designed lighting scheme. Just fit a dimmer switch, so you can transform the mood at a twist of a button, and buy a mirror with lights built into the sides. Lighting around a mirror should come from the sides, as well as from above, to avoid shadows on your face when applying make-up or shaving.
If you are on a limited budget, buy an entry-level bathroom suite and allocate the majority of your funds towards premium fittings, such as the shower and taps. Keep the design as pared back as possible so there’s less danger it will date – you can always make a fashion statement with tiles, towels or a striking basin mixer tap.
For those who love long soaks, it’s worth investing in a cast- stone bath. Cast stone is great at retaining water temperature, so you’ll save the cost of heating any extra you have to add to your old tub. The mineral-packed surface will resist wear and tear in the long term, too, as scratches can be easily polished out.
Investing in coloured bathtubs is an easy way of including a dash of spice in the interiors of your bathroom. You may choose metallic shades like gold or copper for a country styled or classically designed bathroom. Select shades of grey, blue, warm yellow or brown in a contemporary setting. Don’t forget the overall colour scheme. Select coloured bathtubs that are suitable for the colour scheme of your bathroom. Don’t forget to add a dash of colour in the kid’s bathroom. You may select bathtubs with solid colours or those with subtle patterns.
