Great for Small Spaces. Zitta showers already incorporate a number of highly desirable features, and this year the company added an integrated heated towel rack. This makes the most of bathroom space by using the side of the shower wall, which typically is not functional. It is also a very useful concept for bathrooms where wall space is at a premium, which often makes added a heated towel rack impossible. Tighter spaces don't have to mean fewer amenities, as demonstrated by this linear mounted bathtub from Oceania. The Optimale model allows the bathtub and glass shower to be installed in a linear fashion — offering another option for a small bathroom. The “in-line” arrangement is a contemporary look that increases the functionality of the bathroom, providing a separate tub and shower, as opposed to the ubiquitous tub/shower combo found in nearly every home.
Though you might not want or even use a bath tub, every home should have one to appease buyers who dream of a spa tub or those with young children (or dogs!). Take advantage of the shower/tub area to define zones in the room and create an accent wall by changing up the tile you use. You'll want to select a tile that has a water absorption rating of less than 3% (lower than what's recommended for the floors) and has good traction (a coefficient of friction that's greater than or equal to .60). If you're debating between an open or closed shower take a look at our pros and cons to help make your decision. If you can't afford a full gut-job then redecorating is one way to breath new life into the space without spending a fortune. There are many easy bathroom decorating ideas you can implement, from changing the hardware on your cabinetry to a new coat of paint. Colors and textures that might look ostentatious in other rooms in your home are fine in the bathroom, such as dark hues like burgundy or wild prints and patterns.
When it comes to decorating, specialist tile paints can give you a new look without the hassle and expense of retiling. Alternatively, consider using board panels – waterproof boards that can be easily secured to the bathroom wall. They come in plain or patterned designs, and some even give a tile effect. If most of the walls are tiled but some surfaces are painted, simply changing the colour of the paint can achieve a whole new look. And because of the relatively small amount of wall you have to paint, it will take less time and money than redecorating an untiled room. Do make sure you buy paint that's suitable for bathrooms though – ideally, you want to go for an anti-mould, gloss paint. After this, it is a matter of accessorising. Consider buying new curtains or blinds, perhaps adding a new shower curtain or panel, or even putting down a new floor (vinyl's cheapest).
