Great Bath Choices for a Luxurious Bathroom Design

In a year of luxury and spa-inspired bathroom designs, your bath can play a huge role in enhancing the space. Ideally choosing a centre piece bath that can make a statement and combining it with luxurious jets, can complete your luxury bathroom design.

There are a number of bath options available if you are looking to turn your bathroom into a luxurious space.

Freestanding Baths

Freestanding baths have become one of the more popular choices in bathrooms around the country. The versatility to place the bathroom anywhere, even in the centre of the bathroom, has made these baths number one, so to speak.

Freestanding baths come in a selection of shapes and sizes with the Assai being a great choice when looking for that luxurious bath design. These baths are rectangular in shape, widening at the top and you get a selection of coloured bath panel options to choose from, so you can add a splash of colour to your design and ensure your bath is the centrepiece it deserves to be.

Rectangular Baths

While keeping with the straight edged designs, the rectangular baths work beautifully in luxurious bathrooms. The exterior of these baths are minimalistic, bright white and straight edged.

You can choose from a selection of interior shapes to ensure you get the most enjoyable bathing experience from rectangular to kidney shaped designs.

Rectangular baths are not freestanding, they are placed as you would a normal bath, against the wall or in the corner with bath panels to hide the unsightly plumbing.

Add a Touch of Luxury

Whether you choose rectangular baths or one of the many other bath options available you can add a touch of luxury, turning any bathroom into a luxurious space. Adding whirlpool or airpool jets to the rectangular baths or adding kinetic lighting to make that statement that your bathroom deserves are just some of the ways you can turn your rectangular bath into a centre piece and making a statement in your bathroom design.

The Sheer Elegance of Glass Bathroom Basins

With luxury and spa-inspired bathroom themes being a top choice this year, it’s no surprise that the glass bathroom basins are receiving a lot of attention, offering a chance to add an elegant touch to your bathroom design.

Glass is a welcome addition to any bathroom design, incorporating light colours, glass and chrome to a bathroom adds that modern finish that can create a statement in any home.

Glass Bathroom Basins Variety

There is a selection of glass bathroom basins to choose from enabling you to blend them into your overall bathroom design. There are the oval, round and square choices ensuring you carry the same design throughout your bathroom space.

You’re heard me say it before but if you are designing a modern bathroom with plenty of straight edges, then you want to keep that design flowing, so you should choose the square glass bathroom basins. Again if you have chosen bathroom products with curves, then the round or oval will blend in beautifully with the rest of the design.

Caring for Your Glass Bathroom Basin

If you are worried that glass bathroom basins may not withstand the demands you family puts on them, you’ll be pleased to know they are made from toughened glass which can withstand almost everything you throw at them.

Of course you are not going to pour a kettle of boiling water into the glass bathroom basins, but they can handle high temperatures and won’t chip if a deodorant can falls into the basin. You do find many of the other basins will chip at some point.

These glass bathroom basins are easy to clean and maintain, mix half a container with vinegar and the other half with warm water, the same as you would if you were cleaning your shower enclosures. Using a clean sponge, wipe the basin with the mixture and leave for a minute before wiping it off again.

The advantage is that even soap marks come off the glass bathroom basins with ease when you use this homemade mixture, reducing unwanted marks and leaving your basin gleaming.

Bright Spaces

We all know that a light and bright bathroom feels more spacious than it is. This can be accomplished by choosing plenty of white and glass. The glass of the glass bathroom basins allows the light to flow straight through them, which enhances the space and makes your bathroom feel lighter and bigger.

Reduce Bathroom Clutter with Black Lit Mirror Cabinets

Clutter is a huge problem faced by bathrooms throughout the country. Family bathrooms can be a nightmare as each family member has their own toiletries, make up, shaving items and hair care products.

With so many great storage options on the market for bathrooms, you may want to combine functionality with style, light and convenience. Back lit mirror cabinets are a firm choice for any bathroom design ticking all the boxes including a stylish finish to any wall.

Enhance the Space

There are three key elements you want to accomplish in any bathroom design. You want a light space, you want functionality and you want ample storage. The back lit mirror cabinets take all of these requirements and place them in one stylish item that can be mounted into any bathroom.

A lighter bathroom is a larger bathroom, you can make the smallest space feel bigger when you work with light colours and an abundance of light. Not all bathrooms benefit from natural light and you need to use your imagination to make the space as light and bright as possible.

When choosing back lit mirror cabinets you are already including additional light, but place the cabinet with care and allowing any natural light that comes into the space to reflect off the mirror into the room and you are really on a winning streak.

Convenience and Practicality

The back lit mirror cabinets also offer convenience in the bathroom. When getting ready in the morning you can enjoy having your bathroom products, mirror and additional lighting in one space. This can help you get ready faster.

Mirrors in a bathroom are essential, you can’t really imagine a bathroom without a mirror can you? This is because they are an important part of your design, they offer practicality, functionality and convenience.

Storage Space is a Must

Then it comes down to one of the other main reasons why back lit mirror cabinets are such a great addition to your bathroom. They offer you the necessary storage you need for all your smaller bathroom items while including light and convenience.

These cabinets come in a choice of designs to blend in with any bathroom style. They are stylish in design and can be placed in both the ultra-modern or the more traditional bathroom design with ease.

A Perfect Shower for a Fantastic Showering Experience

There are very few homes in the UK today that don’t have a shower. Showers reduce water consumption and offer convenience. They also help maximise floor space in a smaller bathroom design.

Bathroom Layout

In reality we don’t all have the ideal space to put a shower in our bathrooms, maybe you’re working with a space against the wall because your bath takes up the corner position. When you place a shower against the wall you have three exposed sides, one will have the door, but you still have two sides that need an enclosure, which is where shower enclosure side panels come in.

Shower enclosure side panels are made of clear glass which blends in with the shower door you have chosen to seal to the shower tray and reduce the risk of leaks.

The enclosures available come in an unframed and framed option. The shower enclosure side panels give you the freedom to design your bathroom layout to your own specific taste and style and with the clear glass panels, you can enjoy the light flowing freely.

Easy Light Flow

One of the most important aspects of any bathroom design is how light and bright it is. White walls, white bathroom products, an abundance of glass and natural and additional lighting work in harmony to offer you a space which is light and feels spacious.

The advantage to the shower enclosure side panels is that they are completely clear, made from safety glass and these allow light to flow freely through them, brightening the shower and bathroom area and offering that feeling of space.

Shower Selection

It’s important that the shower tray and enclosures you choose blend into your overall bathroom design. There are so many designs to choose from including quadrant shower trays, rectangular or square trays, sliding doors, pivot doors and even bi-fold doors. The shower enclosure side panels work with these to help you get the perfect showering solution for your bathroom.

Affordable Shower Designs

Designing a shower isn’t as hard as you may think. You need a shower tray, an enclosure and a shower set. Once you have these items you can have your shower installed and enjoy the convenience of a shower and a chance to save on your water bill.

Why Shower Sets

Once you have chosen the right tray for your bathroom design and combined it with a shower enclosure you can start concentrating on the shower sets. Shower sets are not only affordable, but are convenient especially in a bathroom that is shared by a number of people.

The shower sets include thermostatic controls, a rod which is mounted vertically to the wall which holds the shower head. When you have people using the shower which are all different heights, the ability to adjust the height of the shower head can add functionality to the space, ensuring they have the best possible showering experience.

There are a number of shower sets available in a choice of great designs which you can blend into your overall design with ease. There are round ones for the traditional bathroom and then flat round ones for the modern bathroom, not to mention the minimalistic square options available.

When you think affordability, convenience and functionality for your shower, shower sets are the easiest option available. If you want to add a wow factor you can always incorporate shower jets which will give your bathroom that spa-inspired design on a minimal budget.

These days we are all trying to save money wherever possible, but home improvements and renovations are essential in increasing the value of your property. You can turn your bathroom into a masterpiece without breaking the bank and the shower sets are just one of the ways you can achieve this.

The twin concealed thermostatic shower valve and rail kit is one of my favourite choices when it comes to the shower sets. The controls are a plate mounted on the shower wall with two dials, very stylish indeed. The shower set itself comprises of a rail with a rectangular and minimalistic shower head which is not only stylish, but very sophisticated and elegant and will blend in beautifully with any bathroom design.

For a traditional bathroom design you may prefer the kit 7 design which comprises of an exposed thermostat with two dials, one to manage your water pressure and the other the temperature. Mounted to the rail is a round shower head which will blend in to any traditional bathroom design.

Shower Baths A Great Choice For Small Bathrooms

Small bathroom designs can be a nightmare, especially when you want the convenience of a shower, but the luxury of a bath. Family members probably also all have their own idea on what they prefer and to keep the peace in the home, you may want to have a look at the shower baths available on the market.

Make the Most of Your Bathroom Space

When working with a small bathroom you are very limited on the space you have available. While you may dream of that beautiful roll top bath and separate walk in shower, in a smaller space this isn’t a practical option.

You do have choice as to the bath you can buy, often a corner bath unit may be the ideal option when thinking of a shower bath, this lets you maximise your use of space and you still have plenty of room to move around, add your toilet, sink and even a vanity unit, if space allows.

By incorporating the two and adding a shower bath, you can enjoy the benefits of both without leaving your bathroom so cramped you cannot move.

Top Designs

The first step to installing shower baths is to look at the space you have available. There is a range of choices for shower baths from smaller baths to corner units, both of which will work wonders in a small space. Add a shower and both you and your family can enjoy the benefits of both.

Take your bathroom design and layout into consideration and with careful measuring find the right shower bath options for the space you have available. Bear in mind that having a shower over the bath design means you don’t compromise too much of your floor space, but at the same time the shower bath needs to blend in with your current bathroom design.

Best of Both

The hardest thing when remodelling a family bathroom is keeping everyone happy. You will have some family members who enjoy a quick shower and then run out the door, while you may prefer a long hot soak in the bath after a long day of juggling work and family.

You often can’t keep everyone happy, but with a shower bath you are able to meet the needs of the entire family and everyone will get to enjoy their preference. Shower baths are ideally suited for younger families. You can’t pop a baby in the shower and once they outgrow the baby bath, you will need a bath tub to wash them in. This way you can ensure the entire family is catered for.

The Many Advantages of Wall Hung Vanity Basins

Wall hung vanity basins can blend in with any bathroom design.  Available in a selection of shapes and sizes these basins are suitable for family bathrooms, en-suites and even cloakrooms.

The appeal when it comes to these basins is that they offer the feeling that they are floating, they do not rely on a counter or shelf, but rather stand alone, mounted to the wall and when combined with a chrome bottle trap, can add sophistication and elegance to your bathroom design.

There are a number of advantages to why the wall hung vanity basins continue to be a top choice in bathrooms throughout the country.

Maximise Floor Space

Wall hung vanity basins are the ideal choice for cloakrooms and compact bathrooms as they don’t take up any floor space. They look as though they are floating and you can use the space below to place a cupboard or even a laundry basket.

The biggest advantage to this is that you can mount your wall hung vanity basins to your desired height, making them perfect for family bathrooms.

Elegant Designs

The wall hung vanity basins are available in a selection of styles and sizes from the rectangular and square designs to the round and semi-circular design with a special design for cloakrooms where the tap mounts to the side rather than the back, maximising your space even further.

The availability of shapes and sizes ensures you can blend your new wall hung vanity basins in with any bathroom design. If you have already chosen straight edges then you can choose from the square or rectangular choices while if you have curved edges, the round or semi-circular wall hung vanity basins may be the right choice for you.

Stylish Finishes

When mounting the wall hung vanity basins you need somewhere for the water to drain to which is why bottle traps are the most popular choice. Now when I mention bottle traps your mind immediately goes to the ugly bottle trap you would find under the kitchen sink.

The bottle traps for bathrooms are finished in polished chrome and come in cylindrical or square designs that blend in with your wall hung vanity basins. The great thing is that bottle traps can give a modern finish to a bathroom space, they are stylish, elegant and sleek in design, making them a popular choice for anyone who is looking at the wall hung vanity basins.

Infinity Mirrors Create a Masterpiece in Your Bathroom

Mirrors are a vital component of your bathroom design. They offer style, convenience and functionality, all rolled into one handy item which mounts on the wall. There are so many great mirror options available, but one of my personal favourites is the infinity bathroom mirrors.

About Infinity Mirrors

Infinity mirrors look like a plain mirror by day, they offer a clear reflection enabling you to get ready for work and when placed strategically, they can reflect natural light back into the bathroom making it a light and bright space. But by night, these mirrors take on a life of their own, once your turn on the lights of the mirror, they not only offer an additional light source, but they offer the most fascinating 3D lighting effect to create a “wow” factor.

Why Choose Infinity Bathroom Mirrors?

The reason these mirrors are so popular is that they offer you all the advantages you would get with a normal mirror, you can use them to see your reflection, they become a masterpiece on what would be a bland wall and you can position them to highlight a centrepiece in the bathroom or to reflect the natural light into the space during the day.

At night when you switch on the infinity bathroom mirrors is when they come into their own, giving a wonderful coloured glow into the space that makes them such an appealing choice for all bathroom designs, both modern and traditional.

If you’re looking for a way to add “wow” factor to your bathroom, you are looking for a mirror that will become the centrepiece of the bathroom and will offer you all the advantages and functionality you would get from a normal bathroom mirror, then the infinity bathroom mirrors are definitely the right choice for you.

Top Shower Enclosures for Luxury Bathrooms

This year is all about luxury bathroom designs, those spa-inspired designs that ooze elegance and style. For those who have a larger bathroom area you may choose a magnificent freestanding bath combined with a separate shower, offering you the best of both. Smaller bathrooms often go for just a shower to maximise the floor space, don’t worry, you can make your bathroom luxurious whichever you choose and whatever size bathroom you have.

There are a wide selection of shower enclosures available, though some shout luxury and when combined with shower jets offering that added luxurious touch, you cannot go wrong.

Bi-Fold Door Shower Enclosures

The first of the shower enclosures that shout elegance and style are the bi-fold door shower enclosures. These enclosures fold to one side of the shower using a concertina effect. They fold in towards the shower, so they don’t compromise your floor space in any way.

Bi-fold door shower enclosures are a fantastic addition to the luxurious bathroom design.

Walk in Shower Enclosures

Then there are the walk in shower enclosures. These enclosures have increased in popularity and ooze luxury while helping you maximise your floor space. The advantage to these shower enclosures is that they don’t have a door, so they don’t take up much space at all. They offer a generous opening to get in and out of the shower while the clear glass design allows for easy light flow.

Sliding Door Shower Enclosures

Sliding door shower enclosures have become the most popular shower enclosures on the market, similar to the bi-fold door shower enclosures, these doors do not swing open and do not compromise floor space in any way. The doors simply slide to one side revealing a large opening for getting in and out of the shower with ease.
