With such busy lives we lead we all need a private space in our home to feel relaxed, restored & refreshed ready to face the world. More and more clients I work with see their ensuite or bathroom as such a place.
An ensuite is one of the smallest spaces in the home but requires some of the greatest consideration, space planning and attention to detail. Without an experienced interior designer to help, too much is at stake to leave to guess work as far as fittings, finishes, layout, speciality trades and building regulations go.
A bathroom needn’t be purely functional and boring with average quality off the shelf fittings. If you know where to go, there are so many fabulous bathroom products from tap ware to tiles and everything in between. An interior designer is an oracle to what’s available and where to purchase it often with special designer prices.
Here are 5 ideas that will elevate your bathroom to ‘sanctuary’
Customise your vanity unit – a vanity that fits the space, designed for purpose, made from quality materials and hardware and is personalised to suit the design of the room is money well spent.
Feature wall paper - to create a stunning backdrop and a touch of luxury and drama.
Standout tap ware – no longer is a tap just a tap. New products to the NZ market include stunning tap and shower fittings made from brass, copper, stainless steel, black polished chrome, black and white.
Mood lighting – LED lights can dramatically change the functionality and mood of an ensuite. In addition to task lighting, consider feature pendants if space allows and also trip sensor foot lights under your wall hung vanity for night time convenience.
Bathroom Radio – like singing in the shower or catching up on the news? An integrated water proof radio system can be built into the wall to keep you in the loop.
