Once neglected in the style stakes, our bathrooms are finally enjoying the design attention they deserve. A busy zone for all the family, carefully considered planning for this space can do wonders for not only your efficiency, but your household budget will benefit from good quality choices with a view to the long term.
Room layout plays a big part and with the right organisation, mornings will run like clockwork. Well-placed basins and plenty of bench space surrounding them make room for more than one occupant at a time. Storage is an important consideration – how many people are using the room? Can your vanity or cabinets accommodate an area for each person?
No longer all function and no form, it’s now possible to make a statement with tapware across the whole colour scheme, by choosing a range that is in line with your other design choices. Options for colour, style and finish can all be chosen from an enormous range of possibilities and this can have a huge impact on the overall look of your bathroom.
But how to bring it all together? Here are our 3 tips for a modern bathroom:
- Invest in the space and budget for a statement bath
A freestanding bath with a floor mounted filler makes a strong style statement and is a great way to take your tapware choices throughout the whole room. The Vivid Slimline Collection from Phoenix includes a Floor Mounted Bath Mixer available in Matte Black, Brushed Gold, Brushed Nickel, Gun Metal and Chrome.
- Opt for streamlined tapware to keep things linear and chic
Given that you will touch your tapware 100s of times each day, it’s important to consider the quality of the hardware and invest for years to come. Phoenix backs their quality by offering a 7 years warranty on the Vivid Slimline range.
Australia is no slouch in designing beautiful shower sets, taps, mixers and accessories that are all within reach of your style and budget.
- Embrace a colour scheme throughout, including for your tapware.
Whilst a chrome finish is still the most popular choice, choices in tapware have lately been expanded to include brushed gold or matte black finish over a solid brass construction. This allows you to bring the space bang up to date and echo your other design choices. Bathroom accessories complete the look – towel hooks, toilet roll holders and tapware are all useful, necessary items that make a space function efficiently, but can tie together visually to complete the look across your whole bathroom. Bring in plants and pick up the tones in your towels and vanity accessories for a cohesive offering – be it modern geometrics, bright blocks of colour or the earthy tones of nature.
