If you like the idea of a wet room but still want a traditional sort of bathroom, go for a partition system. This will afford you the best of both worlds. By installing a glazed partition you can create two distinct zones. One will be for bathing and showering and the other can remain dry. After all, if you simply want to use the toilet a wet room that has been recently used to shower in can sometimes be unappealingly wet. Make over your bathroom so that you have two areas, one dry one wet, but both sympathetically decorated to create a unified look. An on trend look for modern bathrooms is to expose the brickwork. Why hide all the surfaces under tiling, especially if the room is large enough that you can avoid splashing. This look is especially great in apartments but will also work well in regular homes. Keep your shower away from the exposed walls, and use an enclosure so that your brickwork does not become stained.
Another reason why freestanding bathtubs are very appreciated is that they allow you create a more airy and open decor and to highlight and beauty of your bathroom instead of its small dimensions. Your bathroom would be airy, spacious and open whole still having a cohesive design. To ensure that happens, you should be extra careful when choosing the colors and finishes.
Since you won‘t need freestanding light fixtures anywhere near a backlit mirror, that means there‘s more space here for other things. You can take advantage of this if you have a small place and squeeze in some extra storage. Some mirror can be attached to cabinets, much like the ordinary kind. Of course, if you absolutely must, you can complement a backlit mirror with wall sconces or hanging pendant lamps and they can serve separate functions.
A lot of people choose to hide the pipes under their bathroom sink. However, if you can disguise them as something simple and perhaps maybe match them to other accents in the decor, you can leave that space open and opt for one or more shelves under the sink. This is a minimalist bathroom vanity with a beautiful and sophisticated design that accommodates the sink and continues with a platform similar to a shelf. It’s a perfect storage and display surface. Usually, the open shelves in a bathroom are mounted on the wall at the same level as the mirror. Actually, a lot of stylish combos can be created using the two features. A small shelf under the sink is perfect for keeping some extra hand towels ready for guests or for yourself. The open design helps maintain the room bright and spacious.
When you have little space to design in, a powder room’s pipe work may have to be on show. Boxing it in, to hide it, can take up valuable floor space. In such situations make a virtue of the necessity and accentuate what you would normally prefer to hide, like down pipes and waste pipes. Select brushed stainless steel faucet fixings and a towel rail that matches your basin’s waste pipe. Why not extend the idea and use metalwork for your basin, too? Chrome works well as an alternative to stainless steel. If your powder room is located under a stairwell it can be even more pushed for space than elsewhere. Don’t be put off a clear design ethos just because the ceiling may slope or because the room has an awkward corner to negotiate. Site the toilet at the place where headroom is most restricted. Keep the color scheme light in tone and hang a large mirror to give the feeling of more space. Another good tip it to install a hand wash basin that sits in a corner, so guests don't have to squeeze past it.
