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.
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.
If you like red, but think it won’t work in your bathroom, try using it within horizontal plane so that it does not catch the eye fully in a way that an upright surface, like a wall, will. A bright red counter top, in to which your basin is sunk, makes for an ideal starting point with crimson colors. Indeed, you could stop just with single red counter top. But, to set it off nicely use matching light fitting or two or, alternatively, buy some bright red towels to fit in with the look. If you know anything about interior design, it will be that red works well with both black and white. If your want to combine the three strident colors in your bathroom stick to some simple rules. Allow white to be the dominant color, covering the ceiling and most of the walls. Use black and red together, set against the white. Black floors look good in bathrooms. Use red and black next to one anther in a busier arrangement than you would for the white. Mosaic style red tiling with black grout looks good, as does red and black wallpaper set against a marble white decor.
A room starts to get its identity as soon as you paint the walls or apply the wallpaper. So some wallpaper with a bold pattern or color could definitely make your bathroom stand out. You can experiment with all sorts of combinations using swatches and find the one that you think would best suit your bathroom. The bathroom is one of those rooms where you feel more connected to nature in comparison with the living room or bedroom. So you can exploit this concept and try to use natural materials such as stone or rocks to create a small pathway on your bathroom’s floor. It would be just for decor and it would have a very nice impact. A vintage vanity.
