Bathroom / June 23, 2018 / Elie Ignace.
Bathroom taps need to be robust and durable. Features to look for include ceramic discs, which don’t wear out like rubber washers do, so you won’t find yourself having to screw the tap ever-tighter to turn it off, and anti-limescale technology, which prolongs a tap’s lifespan. New taps might also save water using a spray, which consists of lots of tiny individual outlets that produce gentle drops.
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.
Popular bathroom colours of all times include white, shades of grey, blue, beige, taupe, pistachio and lavender. From pale to charcoal grey a variety of shades are used in conjunction with white to decorate the interior of the bathroom. This trend is most common in Scandinavian design inspired homes as well as the contemporary bathroom.
Deciding on a budget in advance means you can prioritise where to spend and where to save. And the good news is that it doesn’t have to cost thousands to create a spa feel. Invest in just one beautiful piece, such as a freestanding bath and show it off against a more budget-conscious backdrop. Bear in mind you also need to allocate some money to practical elements. You might need a larger water tank if you are planning a rainfall shower, and a water softener can be a smart idea to prevent the build-up of limescale.
