In achieving a minimalistic bathroom theme or any type of theme for that matter, one has to go for a theme that matches the feel of your home. Having contrasting themes around the house is never a good idea. In any type of remodeling, you must plan ahead of time and stick to your itinerary. Here is a list of accessories to help you achieve that minimalist look you dream of having.
But no matter what type of bathroom you end up with, there will be plenty of decisions to make along the way. Here are a few things you should consider before you begin to remodel your bathroom:
Vitrified tiles, being stronger and easier to maintain, work well in big sizes for the floor too. The most interesting aspect about ceramic tiles is the amazing variety in design and colour available to play around with. They can be used to create accents or splashes of colour in a dominantly sober scheme or along with other materials like stone. Porcelain or hand printed tiles can also lend a fancy touch.
Make a pebble mat and place it on the floor to get a spa feel for your bathroom. You can easily buy pebbles from crafts stores and you can use an old rubber mat you have. Using some strong contact adhesive, glue all the pebbles to the mat.
People often take corners for granted. However, little do they realize that these can add valuable extra inches of space to your bathroom. In order to make use of these spaces, you should go for sleek and functional corner shelves or cabinets. Installing bulky storage units will only make your bathroom more cluttered and small. This is why it is important to go for those that are well fitted and will help complement your bathroom. Find items of wooden finish and have glass fittings. Making use of glass will give the illusion of a bigger, brighter and roomier bathroom.
Take some time to compare various cloakroom sinks and their prices. Think about the pros and cons of each style for your particular set up. This will help you to narrow down the selection. Once you identify what is the best fit, you can turn your attention to the style, colours, and other variables that are completely up to you.
An anti-scald valve is quick to respond to excessively hot water and reduces the hot water volume before it reaches the spray nozzles of a walk-in tub.
Look at the different basin designs available along with the materials available. Do you think a round or a square sink is going to work best with your overall design? What about the cabinet, are you better off with solid oak or a MDF finish? This is exceptionally important, along with deciding the materials of your basin, is ceramic or glass your best bet? The choices you make should be decided on based on your other bathroom items, such as your shower, bath and toilet.
