Triangular tiles laid in a 3D cube pattern trick the eye into seeing more depth and keep a tile half-wall from looking monolithic. Give a modern bathroom a touch of vintage softness with shell-shaped deco tiles. A curvy vintage mirror sconces and brass fixtures finish the classic look.
Use mirrors to reflect light and add space: Vanity mirrors can take up the entire wall or hang in decorative frames to resemble artwork. When using mirrors in bathrooms consider the subject that will be reflected. Mirrors across from a window will reflect light and scenery while a mirror across from a bathroom linen closet may not give you the impact you were looking for. Mirrors also come in etched versions to add visual interest.
You may remember the kitchen layout guide infographic we published on Freshome a while back. In today’s post we would like to present a bathroom layout guide as featured on Glass Tile Store. This will come handy to anyone who is currently in the process of developing a new home. It is a known fact that bathrooms come in a variety of shapes and sizes but the efficiency of each interior is strongly correlated to an optimum layout.
Use a minimum amount of accessories on the floor: Ensure floor space is kept clear and uncluttered. If you choose to use a rug use 1 large one as opposed to several small ones. The more separate pieces you have the more the floor space is broken up visually. One rug will unify the floor as one large whole and maximize your bathroom area.
Enclosed shower: PROS: Home owners that prefer a more private bathing experience may opt for the enclosed shower. Shower walls can be fully transparent semi-transparent or etched glass can provide more privacy. CONS: Some home owners do not like the glass getting wet and splattered with water droplets after every shower usage. The glass either needs to be cleaned after every use or wiped dry to avoid build up of water droplets. This can be time consuming and if you have hard water more laborious than worth it.
One of copper’s other positive features is that it’s fairly easy to care for. Most of the time warm water is all that is needed to restore a worn-out fixture or lighting element to its former shine. For those occasions that call for a more thorough cleaning skip the harsh chemicals in favor of a gentler cleaner like dish soap.
