For an ultra-modern and very practical effect, you could even use concrete. Underfloor heating adds a really cosy touch – as well as helping to dry the bathroom, and prevent damp and mould from forming – if you have hard floors. If you're considering underfloor heating, visit our guide to get an idea of the costs involved. As well as possibly using tiles for your floor, you'll need to use tiles on the walls around the shower or bath, which should be added after they're fitted. You can also get the same tiles for your bathroom walls and floor if you want a streamlined look. Options for wall-tile types include glass, ceramic or natural stone. There are matt or gloss tiles, and you can have small mosaic ones right through to large tiles, which can make a space-limited bathroom feel larger. Tiles can also be used to make a statement – bold colours or different finishes can have a big impact. If they're used sparingly, such as just around a shower or even statement tiles as a strip running through plain white tiles, it doesn't have to be expensive.
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.
Grohe's bathroom design is decidedly modern and minimalist. The large mirror with backlighting sports rounded corners and a minimalist floating vanity with a single, large basin. It has plenty of counter space for necessities and makes the space feel open because it is not sitting atop a hulking built-in vanity cabinet. New Technologies. An example of how technology is changing the bathroom experience is Grohe's shower controls. The smart shower controls here are integrate on a shelf. It not only allows you to control each fixture, but it also allows users to adjust the size of the water drops and volume of the spray — as well as the temperature. We love that it's also a little shelf. In an innovative use of technology, Oceania's Tahoe 66 tub can be turned into the ultimate skin care product with the company's NanoSens jet system. The jets are unlike any other spa-type tub because the system oxygenates the water with micro bubbles that can penetrate pores. Oceania reps say that this improves skin moisturization, making it baby-soft and, and even easing skin conditions such as eczema.
