The bathroom represents a significant, strictly functional area of the house and therefore we must give it special attention when planning to decorate, both in terms of the bathroom suite and the lighting fixtures. This space is one can be a room for relaxation, though it is also a functional space, and the moment we think about what lighting to use we have to think about all these things. Efficient lighting will allow us to carry out all the activities relating to these rooms without creating any discomfort.
Bathrooms are characterised, in general, as more restricted areas – they are not always the big, airey rooms we may hope for and, often, do not have natural light. As such, lighting becomes more important than usual. Lighting must be more intense than in the rest of our house, as compared with the needs of the room. Uniform light can be expressed through various bodies, selected according to the size of the bathroom. For a small bath uniform light can be obtained with the help of two bodies of lighting arranged on either side of the mirror, and for a large bath the light may be obtained by using a lightning body affixed to the ceiling, above huge mirrors.
Is your bathroom a disaster area? I know mine used to be. Toiletries and make up all over the back of the sink. The medicine cabinet a mess of disorganized bottles, creams, and ointments. The cupboard under the sink crammed to the spilling point with toilet paper rolls and anything that wouldn’t fit elsewhere. Am I right?
Recently, though, I’ve gotten very excited about coming up with different bathroom storage ideas. Now, I’m not talking about major bathroom remodeling here. What I’m talking about can be accomplished with a simple visit to Lowe’s or Home Depot, along with a free afternoon and a little inspiration from Martha Stewart!
White, bright and fabulous bathrooms are all the buzz in the latest bathroom design craze. Bathrooms splashed with boldly colored painted walls and patterned ceramic floor tiles adorned with pristine white pottery bathroom suites create the perfect drama. To finalize the look as the French would say “la piece de resistance”, the bathroom mirror. Bathrooms mirrors are one of the primary elements of any bathroom design ensemble simply because they can completely change the look of the bathroom in the sense of how both natural and artificial light are reflected.
Exploring the endless options available in bathroom mirrors, establishing the look one is striving to achieve whether traditional or contemporary, bathroom mirrors have transitioned through the modern ages. Victorian style bathrooms were often built with heavy layers of dark wood types from boxed in baths, wood framed mirror to wainscoting. Today’s traditional styles of bathroom furnishings are sporting similar design concepts, but with a much softer look. Bathroom mirrors are lightly capped with various wood textures and tones and wood bath panels are added to step up the design elements as an extension of tradition. Arched mirrors alone or with the addition of wall sconces for extra lighting can also create a Victorian feel to your bathroom setting.
