The moment I get up, the first room I enter is the bathroom. There, I spend time thinking about the day’s tasks and routine. I go about making myself ready to face the world in the bathroom. During days when I feel the pressure of a difficult situation, I retreat to my bathroom armed with a brush and cleaning materials. I begin scrubbing the tiles cleaning every corner of the bathroom. This makes me de-stressed, able to go on and relaxed again. So it’s very important that the bathroom is given with much care and plan as with other parts of the room. At least for me. Indeed, I feel more organized if I see the bathroom clean and organized. Here are collection of special bathrooms I think fit my definition of what is contemporary, sustainable and worth spending time inside.
What I look at in a bathroom:
As opposed to the traditional designs, the contemporary bathroom has come a long way. It is more than a place of comfort, but it is a place needing much planning.
Tone and mood is set and created with the color used. Details such as door handles, accessories, hooks and others enhances the mood.
Balance in the bathroom means the space is maximized and the moment you enter the bathroom, everything is in place and you would feel right at home. Ever felt that when you go in one’s bathroom? The homey feeling is just there.
Focal Point is that piece or feature that catches your eye when entering a room. In a bathroom setting, it could be the tile design, a modern accessory, the wood work… anything.
Rhythm is when a kind of uniformity of shape is established. It could be seen in the mirrors, the shower heads, or the fittings. This builds comfort and a smooth flow to the eyes.
