What are the features every bathroom should have? A bathroom basin, faucet, towel rails and a shower or tub are some of the features you should prioritize when planning a bathroom remodeling project. Here are some tips on designing these items.
- Bathroom Basin
The bathroom is one of the smallest parts of your home despite also being one of the most frequently used. To free up floor space, you can install a wall-mounted bathroom basin. However, if you have plenty of bathroom floor space, we recommend installing double basins to maximize bathroom functionality.
- Bathroom Faucets
Bathroom faucets give you an opportunity to add a personal touch to your bathroom. You can never go wrong with sticking to polished chrome (the standard finish for bathroom tapware), but you have a wide range of options available to you. Brushed chrome, brushed bronze, polished brass, polished nickel and stainless steel are some of the more popular finishes.
- Towel Rails or Hooks
We recommend choosing the same finish for all your bathroom features, including towel rails and bathroom tapware, to create a uniform, streamlined look. Remember: when it comes to bathroom design, consistency is key.
- Shower or Tub
A shower is a no-brainer for bathrooms with limited space. However, if you have enough floor space, why not install a tub? There’s nothing like taking a nice, relaxing soak in your tub after a long day.
Here’s a tip: to create a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere in your bathroom, you can install dimmers and feature lighting. And, if you want to make your bathroom seem larger, we recommend choosing a frameless shower, which gives the illusion of a more spacious bathroom. For more design tips, consult one of your local bathroom remodelers and home builders.
