Bathroom Design: 5 Essentials!

This article is provided by Bea.

The design of your bathroom is one of the most important decisions that you will make in the overall design of your home. Your bathroom is both a sanctuary for personal peace and relaxation, while also serving as the place that you will spend the most time getting ready to embrace the world. When redesigning your bathroom, you want to do so with your personal needs and routines in mind. Here are 5 design essentials for every bathroom. 

Freestanding Bathtubs

Nothing exudes peace and tranquility like a freestanding bathtub. Whether you opt for a classic clawfoot bathtub or a modern showpiece, a freestanding bathtub enables you to unwind from a hard day at work, or bathe in luxury before a night out. In many cases, freestanding tubs are deeper than wall-mounted models and give you the ability to place the tub nearly anywhere that you can route your plumbing, leaving space for other bathroom fixtures along your wall. 

Modern Bathroom Vanity

The bathroom vanity is more than just a cabinet with a sink attached. Modern bathroom vanities are a mixture of sense and style. Whether you opt for an industrial design of glass and metal or a wall-mounted minimalist vanity, your bathroom vanity should incorporate your personal needs. If you require counter space, consider a long vanity or one with an oval sink. If storage is important, make sure that your vanity includes cabinet space or a place for you to store storage bins. 

Bathroom Faucets

Bathroom faucets come in all shapes, styles, and colors. From center-set to widespread, single hole or three holes, and in all manners of finishes. For a classic look, consider oil rubbed bronze faucets, or for modern flair, consider a touchless, single hole model. 

Ceramic Sinks

Unless you are going for an industrial look, metal sinks belong in the kitchen, and cultured marble is so last century. There is really no substitute for a classic ceramic sink in a bathroom. Not only is it a classic design, but it is durable, easy to clean, and easy to keep clean. 

Picking the Right Mirror

At the very least, your mirror should encompass the same approximate area as your bathroom vanity. For a modern touch, add ambient lighting to your bathroom with a backlit LED bathroom mirror. Do not forget to also add a full-length mirror behind your door or in your bathroom so that you can check out how you look before heading out for the evening.
