Freestanding bathtubs seem to be very appealing and, at one point, you realize you’ve always wanted one without being sure why. There are lots of reasons why you should choose a freestanding bathtub and most of them are related to functionality and style. Most of the times, homeowners choose freestanding bathtubs because of the views. To understand better, imagine a large master bathroom with a large window and a strategically-positioned bathtub. It’s s style that allows you to choose and change the location of the bathtub and to take advantage of the layout and design of the bathroom.
Shower curtains can also serve another purpose, adding drama and setting the scene for a gorgeous bathtub/shower wall. Consider draping fabric from the ceiling to add softness to a hard ceramic tile or boring bathtub/ shower area. A dramatic bathroom shower curtain is perfect for a guest bathroom or even master bathroom that needs a dramatic and eye-catching focal point. Use decorative sheets, fabrics, and even window treatment material to beautify your shower area. Hang fabric from the ceiling to add visual height and make your bathroom look and feel larger. Add colorful wallpaper, and decorative bath accessories to complement your bathroom shower curtain. Think of your shower as a window wall and you will be surprised at the creative possibilities.
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.
2. Maybe you have cute, bright bath toys. Then you could easily store them on a shelf, out in the open! The toys can double as décor for the kids’ bathroom, which ultimately simplifies your life and adds fun color to your space. A word of caution with this strategy: make sure you limit the number of bath toys, so that the shelves don’t become a free-for-all junk drop. Two or three larger toys might just be all you (or your children) need in the tub.
