Over the past decade, with the popularity of TV shows like Changing Rooms, the trend for old-fashioned bathrooms has seen a real upsurge. A rare gem of an old slipper bath or rusty traditional faucet may be found at a scrap yard or in a skip, but thankfully manufacturers are keeping up with demand with skillfully crafted traditional bathroom products.
You may also think of installing a wall mounted sink and floating cupboards. This will eliminate them from taking too much floor space. Also, you can utilize the floor for other purposes such as putting a trash can or a plant.
As well as the furniture, wall-hung sanitary ware is a great space-saving solution while giving the bathroom a contemporary feel. Also, concealed cistern units are a more eye-pleasing look than the standard close-coupled toilet. The bathroom is one of the most important parts in any house. It needs more attention and care than any other space in a home. Irrespective of the size or location of the home, if someone ignores the bathroom it indicates that the entire house is something less than livable. It is only part in your home that gives you utmost privacy. Thus many people feel relaxed and free while they are using their bathrooms. And to make the place more appealing people spend hundreds of dollars remodeling and refurbishing its interiors.
Yet another key element that can be treated as an important part of your overall bathroom design, are the cabinets. There are several different varieties of cabinet designs to choose from. It all depends on your taste and personal likes and dislikes. Again, you are left with various choices pertaining to different colors, different materials wood, plastic or fiber, different designs and different styles. You can either base the entire bathroom design on contemporary themes or make it look rich and royal by keeping things quite traditional. It is up to you.
One of the most appealing things about the traditional bathroom is clutter gives it more of a lived-in effect, thus enhancing the traditional look. Dont be afraid to put plenty of pictures on the walls - black and white family portraits in gold frames are a good look. A chest of drawers or corner table with scented candles, aromatherapy oils or flowers will really bring the room to life. As a finishing touch an old style set of weighing scales, a large framed mirror or bulky traditional radiator will give the room that cozy old-fashioned feel.
How many of us have had a bathroom with a cluttered airing cupboard? With the modern bathroom theres no need to cram your toiletries, towels and cleaning fluids around the boiler. With fitted vanity units, storage units and cabinets youll have all the space you need. When examining modern bathroom design, wall-hung furniture has to get a mention. White gloss will never go out of fashion, but more recently furniture finishes such as wenge, beech and maple have made a real emergence in popularity.
