Bright bathroom

Img from

This bathroom is in a Sydney house and has a few features I find quite attractive - firstly, the sliding door is transparent, letting lots of light in (and out). Secondly, the wall hung basins mean the small space doesn't look cramped. Thirdly, the wall of mirrors makes the room seem bigger (and they're practical, too), lastly, the place is flooded with light.

Hubby and I went to Grand Designs Live at London's Excel at the weekend and traipsed around it for six hours (!).It might sound like a lot of time spent but if you consider we could've easily spent 5 or 6 weekends going to various tile shops, joiners and bathroom stores then seeing them all in one day actually saved us loads of effort, arguing and most importantly, time.

We had a design session with the lovely people at Velux. We decided against having the remote controlled opening option, instead going for a second Velux in the hallway which will throw daylight down the stairs. The cost for both windows (1.3m wide in the bathroom and a standard width one in the stairs) is less than the price of one remote operated window, and opening them with a pole doesn't seem too bad when we've saving a several hundred pounds. Hopefully the Velux will mean our bathroom is as bright as this one!

Cabinets and countertops offer the much-needed storage space in the bathroom to store your toiletries, keep medicines and first-aid box, cleaning milk, moisturizer and deodorants, towels and napkins besides other things that you use daily while showering in your bath. They are powerful accents to your bath d├ęcor and help you to define the tone and style of the bathroom wall cabinets and make the best use of the wall and floor surface of the area. .
