Queen of the Nile, certainly knew how to enjoy a good bath. Messaged
in rich oils, soaked in milk and honey in a pool surrounded by hand
maidens and lotus blossoms. She knew how to unwind after a hard day
of ruling over Egypt.
a long bath has been part of people's lifestyle for a long time. Now
bathroom decor is the most important part of a Residence's interior.
An ideal bathroom is functional, clean, maintainable, and has a tidy
appearance, with wet and dry areas separated by a low ledge. It is
a place you can retreat to in privacy, spending uninterrupted time
tending to your needs. It reflects your individual sense of style
by displaying your love of particular colours, your favourite textures
and patterns. There are various styles of bathroom décor to
choose from such as Indian-style, British Style, Chinese Style, Luxury,
Different Levels, Black and White etc.
most important part, at least for the designer, is budget, as well
as the client's choice. A small bathroom is a challenge for an interior
designer. This is a small, spacious master bathroom. The designer
arranged light peach-coloured non-slippery tiles in the bathroom's
wall and floor. Light coloured tiles look spacious. There are various
types of tiles in the market. "Safety" is a vital issue
when planning a bathroom's decor. So safety-conscious clients do not
want to be victims of spills and slips in the bathroom. That is why
the designer arranged matte tiles, which is ideal for a bathroom.
A decorative floral border line is set 2'-6" high above the cabinet
basin on the wall. The mirror has to be placed so that it does not
overlap the border. The counter basin top is covered with matching
Parlotto Cecile marble. The edge of the marble top is semi-circle
medium size 5'-7" bathtub is fitted as per bathroom measurements.
Bathtub, washbasin, and W/C all are modern style in shades of off-white
to match with the tiles. Accessories and mixers also play an important
role in the beautification of a bathroom. Stylish silver mixer of
well-known brand names are used in the bathroom.
is another important consideration. In our country, traditional lighting
is handled very badly. A bathroom must have light fixtures, plug-points
switches that are grounded and protected with circuit breakers and
kept well away from the bathing area. The designer arranged various
lights for proper purpose and beautification, and also arranged plug
point for hair drying and saving necessity. A proper hot-and-cool
plumbing system was placed in the bathroom, which is also very important
nowadays. A window was installed for daylight and exhaust fan for
large mirror with the wooden frame was set above the basin to make
the bathroom spacious. A designer-made curved marble slab was placed
next to the washbasin. Above the slab, a beautiful, slim etched glass
rack with a wooden frame was installed, with spotlights to illuminate
the perfumes and decoration pieces. Sometimes, the bathroom is a good
place for keeping a personal photo frame. Why restrict such things
to a living room? As the bathroom is the place where one can unwind,
it is a good idea to keep a magazine basket and/or a weight machine
a corner of the bathtub, two-step glass shelves are attached for storing
bathing accessories. Beautiful towels are favourite item. So a towel
rack is settled above the bathtub.
Area": this is a major consensus point when designing a beautiful,
dry and clean bathroom. Wetness is a hazard. To avoid wetness, designer
arranged floor-length shower curtains beside the bathtub. To further
minimise wetness, it is necessary to keep the needed accessories close
to the bathing area.
door to the bathroom has to be chosen very carefully. Wooden or particle-board
doors don't last very long, while plastic doors, which are more durable,
are not popular with home-owners. This bathroom has a wooden door
with molded beats.
a bathroom mat, plants, and small decoration pieces were added as
finishing touches to provide the perfect bathroom.
