Bathroom Finishes

Aside from your selected wall and floor tiles, your bathroom finishes will also assist in creating a colour story in your new bathroom design. Vanity tops and cabinetry finishes should ideally complement the balance of your design scheme, acting as a means of tying together the whole look. Engineered stone products (such as Caesarstone for example) provide a luxurious and low maintenance vanity top option that is perfect for the bathroom thanks to its virtually non-porous surface finish. These stones are available in a vast variety of colours, from simulated black or white marbles to timeless speckled granite or terrazzo look products and even modern industrial themed concrete inspired surfaces. 

Bathroom Fittings & Furniture

Stepping away from the more traditional bright chrome bathroom fittings, modern designs now include several different coloured styles including bright gold, aged brass, matte black or pure white, creating an ultra-modern look. Using coloured hand basins can also infuse your design with  a more modern aesthetic, with dyed concrete basins being especially popular in interiors the world over.

Including stylish pieces of bathroom furniture can also provide pops of colour and texture in your new design. Timber stools or side tables make for the perfect accompaniment to an opulent freestanding bathtub for example, while ornate armoires or small chests of drawers provide an abundance of storage space while also creating a feature of interest in your overall design scheme. 

Lighting Temperatures and Fixtures

Lighting temperatures specify the amount of red versus blue in your lighting. Lighting fixtures that include more red are considered to be warmer toned, casting a soft yellow glow whereas fixtures tinted with blue are considered to be cooler in tone, casting a sharper white to blue colour in the space. Warmer tones are most popular in the bathroom, creating a comforting and soothing atmosphere however your preferences and individual needs will dictate this decision.
