The first thing that probably each and every one of us does in the morning when we get up, is visit the bathroom. Often times people neglect how their bathroom looks like, which I think speaks a lot about their personality. We all see the elegantly designed, luxurious bathrooms in the movies and they immediately associate us to rich people. However, contrary to the popular belief, a fancy looking bathroom doesn’t have to be particularly expensive.
There is a variety of bathroom equipment that will help you achieve that luxurious, movie-like bathroom look. However, before going online or in a retail store to buy the bathroom equipment that you need, there are a couple of things you need to consider – the main one being the available space. A lot of houses are designed to have a much more spacey living room or bedroom and the bathrooms are usually smaller as a result of that. Once you know how much space you have at your disposal, it’s time to pick the essential bathroom equipment that will give it a brand new and polished look.
First things first – the bathtub. You can choose between a few different types, however, bathtubs that seem to grow in popularity in the recent years are the stand-alone tubs. You can fit them anywhere in the bathroom, which makes them very versatile and classy. They’re much easier to install than conventional recessed tubs because they don’t need to be fitted into the wall. However, you’ll need cold and hot water pipe lines to come through either the wall or the floor. Even though they are easier to install, they are generally more expensive than conventional tubs because of the materials they’re made from. They’re most commonly made of cast iron which is more expensive than enamel.
Another piece of equipment that adds to the stylishness of the bathroom is the toilet. Toilets can be either wall faced, without a close coupled cistern, or wash down toilets. Whichever you choose, you can’t go wrong. However, if you have limited space you should consider getting the wall faced one for the sake of saving space.
And lastly, complete your bathroom design by buying a basin that goes well with the previous two. You can choose its shape, depending on the shape and style of your toilet and bathtub, so you can have all of your equipment either round or square looking, making it look like a single complete unit. You can also decide whether you want it above the counter or mounted on the wall and hung.
Again, it all comes down to personal preferences and what you feel will look most elegant for your home. Choose something that is not only functional, but also stylish and will make you look forward to a long bubble bath more than ever.
