Is Your Bathroom a Haven yet?
When it comes to renovating your bathroom and choosing designs and finishes, it seems that the key considerations this year are providing an inner sanctuary with a zen-like feel, and embracing the concept of the wet room.
Both of these concepts are a move towards simple, clean and uncluttered lines that make your bathroom both a practical and beautiful place to spend time.
The wet-room concept places the shower as the focal point of your design with clean, uncluttered lines and a lack of traditional shower screens. For this style of bathroom your bathroom preparation and waterproofing is paramount as the absence of a traditional shower base is replaced by a gently sloping floor and drain. To make the most of this style of bathroom you need to opt for fittings that are floating, rather than traditional fixed options to create a sense of space. This is ideal for making a small bathroom appear larger.
Building on this concept is the idea of creating a zen sanctuary. The focus with this design is still clean lines but places emphasis on the retreat qualities of the bathroom to provide an enticing sanctuary that removes the stresses and pressures of today’s fast-paced life.
Simple colours, vessel basins and a focus on eco-friendly fixtures feature highly in this style of design.
