Whether or not we are consciously aware of it, if we really want to know what’s going on inside someone’s mind at that moment, odds are favorable that their bathroom is one of the top three rooms to reveal it all. Don’t get us wrong: we’re not talking about snooping through cabinets or anything like that. From a strict design standpoint, the feel and appearance of one’s bathroom (especially their master bath) more often than not reflects a large part of how their life is going at the time. Why? It’s simple: the bathroom is without a doubt the most intimate and private room in the home, with the bedroom running a close second. We are freer in our bathrooms to be our complete and total human selves. The bathroom is generally one of the first places we enter upon waking, and the last places we see at night. The things that surround us during these times of sheer nakedness and ultimate vulnerability can really have an immense bearing on how our days go. That’s why we shouldn’t neglect bathroom design in our homes. Perhaps you’re due for a new look, overhaul, addition or expansion to give your life more balance? We’ve got some great ideas from all over the web to get your juices flowing in that direction.
Though fewer people may end up seeing your bathroom than say, your kitchen, it should nevertheless feel like an inviting space. After all, it is where you will get ready for your big day ahead – every day of the year. That being said, nothing warms up an area like natural light. This designer used natural lighting to assist with an update of an older bathroom, complete with a modern shower, bringing out its unique charm. Who says a bathroom has to be newer to be amazing?
But new is still good. Tranquility is definitely what comes to mind when viewing this spa-like bathroom. Simplicity becomes an asset here, showcasing the exquisite exterior of the property to create a space anyone would be happy to start their day in.
The two bathrooms above are quite spacious. But what if you’re working with less? Just because space is lacking, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice beauty and balance in design. Case in point: this bathroom. Perfect for an apartment or a private room add-on, it provides functionality while not losing any style.
Earlier, we mentioned the miracle of natural lighting. What happens if you have none to work with? Fear not. There are so many lighting options available today that you’ll have great fun picking out a few for your new space. Check out what this designer accomplished by focusing on directing light strategically throughout the space to prevent a darker bathroom from losing any of its appeal.
Perhaps you’re thinking of sprucing up the restroom in your business office. Again, lighting will play a major role in your success, as it does in this washroom area where it is placed within the walls for an almost ethereal effect. Combined with a cascading water faucet, something like this is sure to leave your clients and guests feeling refreshed after a visit.
