When we are on vacation and stay at a hotel, we always admire the décor and the ambience and sometimes wish that our home should be that way as well. It’s not just the living areas in hotel suites that are designed and maintained well, but the bathrooms are a dream. They look plush and have snazzy fittings. The vanities are tiled or marbled and the sinks may be of the latest colored glass. If the truth be told, bathroom designing is an art in itself. Some might beg to differ and say that there isn’t really much that has to be looked into in terms of a “design” when it comes to bathrooms. |
However, anyone who has undertaken a bathroom remodeling project in their home will know that getting the look of a bathroom right is not an easy job. The flooring and wall tiling have to complement each other. The fittings have to be of a good quality and look good as well. Something that looks good today may not always stay that way especially when it is subjected to the kind of moisture and steam conditions that exist in a bathroom. Brass fittings if not anodized will tarnish over a period of time and tarnish the look of your bathroom as well.
Another important factor in bathroom remodeling is the plumbing. You will have to get a professional plumber in case you want any additional water connections. If you are planning to strip-off the existing tiles and replace them with new ones, have the concealed plumbing checked. It is best to do this check at this point of time and replace any damaged or leaky pipes or fittings. Getting these things checked or replaced can be a very expensive and time consuming affair if you have to start with it from scratch.
When you go to a furniture store to look for bathroom materials and fittings, you will find that there dedicated sections for these. Most stores understand that people are not too inclined in spending too much time store-hopping and stock a variety of furniture for very room in your house, under a single roof. Bathrooms are very high-use areas and a well-established furniture store will have designers who can help you with choosing materials for it. They can also help you with the actual designing and provide you with ideas.
There are a few more things you should consider when you are designing the bathrooms in your home. If you have a traditional style home, opt for a bathroom that sports a traditional look as well. Use warmer colored tiles and wall paint. You can have a wood bathroom vanity and use stone at some spots on the sink counter. You can also opt for a stone or marble sink to continue with the effect. Use brass fittings to complete the look. If you have a contemporary-style home, use glass and steel in the bathroom. The fittings can be chrome and these finishes are more long-lasting than wood and brass. Blend in functionality and beauty in your bathroom design.
