Bathroom Inspiration – wash your worries away….
In need of a family-friendly bathroom renovation but not sure where to start?
Leah & Galit, design and renovation experts from Just In Place, Sydney recommend you give your family-friendly bathroom renovation a boost with these top bathroom design tips and inspirational ideas.
Declutter and keep the knick-knacks out of sight. Choose a vanity with either doors or drawers, a shaving cabinet and even add a storage unit if possible.
Always a good idea for both functionality and design (although seriously, do we really want to look at ourselves so sleep deprived?!)
In addition to being essential for all those tasks like applying make-up, mirrors will help you make the most of your space by making it appear bigger and reflect the light, they can also act as a statement piece
3 Power points
Essential! Think about placing inside a vanity or a shaving cabinet so any rechargeables are out of sight and surfaces are kept clear.
In the shower or above a bath, a niche adds depth and interest and also helps with storage and display. Consider lighting and change in tile for added WOW.
5 Heated Towel Rails
Not only practical but adds that extra touch of luxury to your bathroom.
There is nothing more comforting and inviting than a warm towel after a relaxing shower / bath. And for those cold nights a heated towel rail can dry your wet towels quickly and conveniently.
6 Under floor heating
Once an expensive luxury its today’s must have.
Low cost, easy installation (even DIY), safe and a nice-even distribution of heat throughout the entire space make it a preferred source of heating for your bathroom. It also helps dry out the space faster and prevent humidity becoming an issue in the bathroom.
Having the correct lighting in the bathroom is vital in order to perform all daily tasks such as applying makeup, shaving, brushing…
The location of this lighting is very important too to ensure shadows are reduced and focal points are highlighted. There are different types of lighting depending upon the function required and we recommend a combination:
- General lighting: LED downlights in Warm or Cool light colour are the most popular choice.
- Task lighting: Installed above vanity. Ensure they are correctly placed to avoid shadowing when using the mirrors.
- Ambient lighting: Think about wall lights, scones or pendant lights to add some interest and sense of drama.
Consider greenery! Add for that splash of colour and natural texture. Plant recommendations include: Orchid, Aloe Vera’, Cast Iron Fern, Chinese Evergreen and Begonia‘s.
Phsst…they don’t have to be real. If you struggle to keep them alive there are some amazing fake versions out there.
