And an­other thing

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Home - - FOCUS -

De­sign­ing a bath­room can feel like a game of Tetris at times, as you try to fit all the pieces to­gether in the right or­der. We’ve put to­gether the el­e­ments you might have for­got­ten for a beau­ti­ful bath­room.

Look for the light. This is not just about the num­ber of down­lights to spec­ify. Con­sider where nat­u­ral light is com­ing from and whether you still have pri­vacy. If your bath­room is land­locked, a sky­light could be the so­lu­tion.

The daily mir­ror. Ide­ally, go for some­thing big to sit over the van­ity. Mir­rors are great for bounc­ing light around so con­sider them for cup­board doors or even just hang­ing on the wall. Just re­mem­ber, the more you have, the more you’ll have to clean.

On the tiles. There’s a rea­son why tiles are the sur­face of choice for bath­rooms — they are hard-wear­ing in wet ar­eas and rel­a­tively easy to keep clean. Large for­mat tiles mean less grout to at­tract mould while smaller tiles make a beau­ti­ful style state­ment on the wall, es­pe­cially if you opt for some­thing tex­tured.

Keep it sim­ple. Bath­rooms are ex­pen­sive to ren­o­vate, so don’t be too drawn to flash new trends. Opt for a time­less look that you can up­date with ac­ces­sories.
