We spend hours a day in our bathroom, from showering to going to the bathroom to brushing our teeth and getting groomed in front of the mirror. Some will claim that women spend more time in the bathroom than others, but it’s 2018, and judging by the meticulous grooming rituals of many men, we think this is steadily evening itself out. It’s time we gave the bathroom the credit it deserves and did some renovating and remodeling.
Treat Your Bathroom as a Stylish Space
Gone are the days when the bathroom was treated similarly to a utility room. Your bathroom is so much more than a sink and shower and a toilet. It’s the place you get ready for a date. It’s where you hid that day you were really sad. It’s where you and your friends gather to talk about that hottie at the party. It’s also the only room in the house that will allow you to be completely alone. Your bathroom is there in all the important moments of your life – and some of the worst – so why not give this room the credit it deserves?
Make the best use of the space
Your bathroom is a multi-functional room. You need a place to dry after you shower, and you need a place for all of your gadgets and products, hair curlers, and shavers. It’s also one room in the house that needs to be kept clean at all times, so take that into consideration when you talk to your designer.
Making smart use of the space in your bathroom can give it function, but also help you keep it clean. Make sure there aren’t awkward spaces below the cabinets and around the toilet. Customize your cabinetry to fit each function. It will utilize the space much better, as well as make it much easier to clean, move about, and do your thing – whatever that thing may be.
Quartz and granite countertops
Since you spend so much time in your bathroom, you need to use materials that are tough but beautiful, as well as able to stand up to a very moist environment. Quartz or granite countertops are durable, sustainable, and come in a variety of colors that can match any color scheme you have in your bathroom
Task and ambient lighting
Lighting is very important in a bathroom. No one wants to look in the mirror and have a sharp light distort their face, making them look sick or tired. However, you need a brighter bulb when you are applying makeup or plucking your eyebrows (that goes for you, too, guys. Don’t think we hadn’t noticed!) The ceiling light can be soft and pleasant for everyday use, and then you can design additional task lighting for everything else.
