Your home is where memories are made, lives are created, and special moments are enjoyed. It’s also where you can make a statement about what kind of person you are, and what you love about life. Hopefully your home will put out this kind of positive statement – even rooms like the bathroom, which are highly used yet often overlooked when it comes to design. If you want to make a fresh start in your home, here are some design ideas that change the way you live your life and the image you portray to other people – starting with the bathroom.
Luxury, Luxury, Luxury
When it comes to the master bathroom, all design trends point to all-out luxury. This is the room where you can really splash out on the best in fittings and features, so you create a room you love to spend time in. Gone are the sparse and basic bathrooms that made the room look like a second thought. Now homeowners are spending considerable amounts of money on remodelling the master bathroom suite as it is clearly a place where you spend a lot of time.
Light it Up
A lot of attention is being paid to lighting design in modern bathrooms. Good lighting can make a real difference to the feel of a space, whether it is natural light or the addition of carefully placed lamps and dimmer lights.
Spa Shower, Not Master Shower
The design trend is towards a spa shower rather than the traditional master shower, or a modern version of the sauna in the steam shower. A modern Steam Shower is versatile as it can be used as a regular shower, but you also have the option of using it as a sauna. Large steam showers can have walk-in doors and are fitted out with benches and seats, with additions including lighting, mood music, and even bathroom TVs. Rain showers are still popular, and people are even looking at the possibility of installing an outdoor shower.
Out with the Tub?
Many people are deciding to spend the big money on a shower and not on a tub, so they decide the bath is not actually necessary in the new bathroom and removing it will save space. Others still like the idea of a bath but realise, considering how busy their lives are, that they will not actually use it. If you are on a budget and need to consider how to save money, it does make sense to spend on one or the other; the shower or the bath. However, others are going the other way and deciding to make a style statement out of the tub by installing an opulent freestanding bathtub, or s smart and comfortable deep soaking tub. There is no denying how relaxing a long, hot soak in the bath can be.
