Abella Laporte, Thursday, March 6th 2014. Bathroom, Bathroom Design for Beautifying Your Relaxation Place

Bathroom design is very important and should be done carefully because it serves a place for relaxation to your body. Therefore, it needs to have somewhat relaxing, soothing, and calming atmospheres to better make the relaxation takes place. Rejuvenate yourself with this Villeroy & Boch’s Memento Collection focusing on details in your bathroom. Choose sleek as main design and thus you can fill up the place with modern and contemporary furniture with unique details and also patterns.

Bathroom Design Defined

When you are making bathroom design plans, do not exaggerate it too much but just remember to use and give more attention into details, instead of using many décor. The theme Memento means to use surface–mounted washbasins, wood counter, floating cabinets, mirror, and shining light bulbs. All of these items comprise the sink area. The white porcelain and elegant pattern of washbasin is the focal point of this bathroom design. To accentuate the sleek style, you need to use metallic silver faucets.

Details of Bathroom Design

Sleek bathroom design will mean to use white colors in any furnishings and décor. Or, other option is to choose neutral colors but with gleaming effect. Take a look at the details in walls, floor, and ceiling this bathroom design has. Even though white tiles are used, but good–looking patterned rug is chosen to roll out above it. Walls are also made of tiles but they are different in colors according to the area, whereas ceiling is neutral also but with shiny lights. Read more »

Bath Remodeling: Bathroom Floor Plans

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

37

There are several ways to plan for a successful bathroom remodeling. An old favorite way to draw up bathroom floor plans was to make cut-outs of brown paper or newspaper exactly the size of the fixtures you plan to use in the bath remodel. Then arrange the cut-outs on the floor of the space you will remodel for the bathroom. Another way is to draw a bathroom floor plan to scale on graph paper. Let ½ inch equal 1 foot of the available bathroom design space. Make cut-outs of fixtures drawn to the same scale. Draw lines in this bathroom plan to show the location of windows and doors.

Don’t worry if the finished bath design appears small; remember that the latest bathroom tiles design can make a room appear larger. Then arrange the cut-outs on the floor plan. Be sure to allow for enough space between bathroom fixtures to clean easily. Plan the plumbing so pipes can be put into walls and under the floor where they are hidden from sight. If vertical pipes cannot be placed in the walls, box them in. Plumbing fixtures are heavy; make sure the floor joists are large enough to hold the fixtures. In an old house remodeling, have an experienced builder check the floors before beginning the bath remodeling. They may need more or larger joists.

When choosing cabinets or mirrors for modern and contemporary bathroom design styles it is important to make sure that the shapes of the counter tops, mirror, windows, and any other large piece in the bathroom match each other and have simple and clean lines. Ovals or straight lines often allow for a clean bold look to the room, with ovals adding a more subtle harmonious look. You want to be sure that which ever shape you choose, the lines match; for instance if you choose a rectangular countertop you will want to have a square or rectangular sink as well as mirror, and shower or bathtub.

Last year, the best bathroom colors in 2013 were dark shades of red, blue, green, and purple. These color combos made for a regal and dramatic style for your home. However, in a small room like a bathroom, a dark paint color absorbs light and makes the space feel even smaller. Thus the design trends of 2014 are moving towards lighter shades.

Victorian Bathroom Style Tips

Victorian Bathroom Style Tips

The name of this theme is self-descriptive. When you shop for sinks, bathtubs, furniture, cabinets, and lighting, think: Victorian. When you shop, use the word “Victorian” as an adjective to describe absolutely all of your plans. Use it at the hardware store, and use it when you’re shopping for your supplies online. With this straightforward strategy, you will be sure to find an eclectic mix of themed décor that will make your bathroom radiate sophistication and character.

Victorian themes show an appreciation for the expensive, artistic, and luxurious. When it comes to everything in your bathroom- your cabinets, vanity, tub, artwork, and decorative pieces- choose organic shapes that are round and oval. As much as possible, avoid square and rectangular shaped décor.
