According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, bathroom fixtures take up 20% of the renovation budget on average so when choosing fixtures and finishes consider who is using the space and how heavily it will be used. Is it a kid's bathroom? Then plastic laminate flooring and countertops are a good option because they're both durable and inexpensive (and high-end material is of less importance to children). You'll thank yourself later for using finishes that are low maintenance and easy to keep clean. In that regard, choose quartz instead of marble and make sure glass shower doors are treated with anti-spotting agents. In terms of fixtures, you'll want high-quality construction like all-brass parts and a PVD finish that will resist scratches. Basic chrome is cheaper than materials like nickel or bronze. Low budget, high impact swaps include replacing specific features; here's our guide on how to pick out the best bathroom vanity. When making any changes consider where you can creatively hide storage in the room and for energy efficiency be sure to look for low-flow toilet models.
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.
Which colour to use in my bathroom? Before making irrational decisions with towels and floor mats, you should be aware of what colours you want for the larger elements in your bathroom. Don't forget that the colour you choose will affect the overall ambience and feeling in the space. White is the go-to colour for most homeowners as it can be combined with other colours to create different effects. Combined with blue, it will house an adventurous underwater flair, whereas if combined with black, it can create a dramatic and romantic appeal. Also, you must take note of the amount, or lack thereof, of natural light that penetrates the space, as in the end, this will decide the colour scheme of your bathroom. As a general rule of thumb, dark or bright colours should not be used in small bathrooms, with the exception of small accessories.
