Stark and sterile bathrooms of old are being replaced in modern homes by beautiful versions reminiscent of hotel spas and luxury resorts.
After a long day, sometimes all you need is a little time to relax and there is no better place to unwind than in your own sanctuary at home.
You can create this look and feel in your bathroom with some updated features, simply swapping a tired old suite with a new top of the range design can add sparkle to your room. Changing from a bath to a shower enclosure or from pedestal to unit – all makes a difference when it comes to luxury.
If you’re looking to create a luxury high-end bathroom, neatly streamlined finishes and opulent combinations of tactile materials such as marble, wood and glass are the way to go.
Such investment will last a lifetime, keeping your bathroom looking fresh and luxurious for years and with Addingtons you know that you have a ten year guarantee on all our workmanship, if you choose Montrose furniture this comes with a lifetime guarantee to secure you even more.
A larger space affords the opportunity to play more creatively with the organisation of the facilities, with a centrally positioned freestanding tub or walk through shower area for the ultimate statement.
With a huge range of choices available, including multiple fixed showerheads, steam functions and electronic controls, your imagination can run wild.
Keep in mind that the little details will make your piece look professional, so it is important to spend your money on high-quality taps and fixtures, try not to be fooled by cheap lookalikes that simply wont last as long.
If your bathroom needs an injection of light, downlights can be great, with dimmable switches ensuring a variety of options depending on the mood. If you’re looking for something a little more elegant Led strip lighting can create a splash of modern sophistication and they come in a whole range of colours.
Key areas or pieces of furniture can be highlighted to create interest and drama – maybe add a feature tiled wall to create emphasis.
It is important to provide specific task lighting for mirrors used to apply make-up or for use while shaving. Opaque lampshades positioned at face height will create a smooth, even illumination, minimising shadows. |Illuminated mirrors can also create the right shadowing to make sure you look perfect in both dark and bright light, some lights especially the Deva light from Montrose fit just above the mirror and are a great easy way to light up the area.
Some of us love gadgets, with new age items like radio shower heads, television radiators and built in USB and shaver sockets we cant get enough, and adding these small items may be your idea of perfection.
For anyone looking for an immediate update at relatively little cost, the easiest way is to change towels. A fresh set can offer refined luxury without the need for an overhaul. Look for a heavier, thicker set which will ensure a softer and more absorbent towel. Changing these small accessories breaths new life and can give you even more inspiration.
Simple changes can make a huge difference, a few well placed ornaments can give the room more scope, more definition.
