In every room or particular area of the house there's one element or furniture piece which stands out from the rest and which dictates the way everything else is placed and oriented. In the bathroom, that element is usually the bathtub. Its central role is due to its size but also its function and the ambiance that revolves around it. Bathtubs come in numerous different styles, shapes, sizes, colors, finishes and they can also be made of various different materials. Each type is special and inspiring in its own way. Freestanding bathtubs are usually the most interesting and eye-catching ones. The ones in the Papillon series are especially beautiful. Each tub is carved is carved from a single block of material and is made to order, with the possibility to be customized. You can choose from seven different materials and finishes including granite, travertine, sandstone, limestone and Carrara marble. The sandstone version looks very much like a wooden bathtub and that can potentially give the entire room a luxurious spa-like feel.
You can also use vintage light fixtures, old pieces of barn wood for shelves, or an old mirror above the sink. Every time you use something old instead of something new, you're probably saving money and reducing your consumption. Both very good things. Don't forget to give back too. Any items you take out of your bathroom can be donated to your local Goodwill or to a Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I've recently thought about redoing my own bathroom. My house was built in 1900 and I have one very small bathroom. Thanks to an unfortunate paint color choice, the walls look as if they were hosed down with Pepto Bismal. In other words, it really needs some work and repainting is number one on my list. After that, I'd love to upcycle some old wood or metal to create shelving above the toilet and next to the sink. The plumbing towel racks are also definitely going in.
Of course, injecting some of your own style into the bathroom doesn't have to be limited to wall coverings or accessories. Fleurco‘s tub features a print on the outside. While this one was designed to be a promotional item, highlighting the company's style and quality, it opens the door to design ideas that are uniquely your own when it comes to designing a singular bathroom retreat for your home. Options for bathroom surfaces have also expanded, giving homeowners more choice in types style, look and durability. Vicostone, is an engineered stone made from up to 93% pure natural quartz aggregates. The stone is combined with a polymer resin and color powder, making it harder, more durable and lower maintenance than many natural stones. Here, it is shown as a tub surround in a design that adds plenty of space for bathing necessities. The rapid pace of technology and evolving styles continue to change the look of bathrooms. Trends may come and go, but they are all leaving their mark on the level of style and functionality that we expect from a bathroom, compared to the days when the newest fixtures were all we needed.
