Bathroom / January 22, 2018 / Rayne Boyer.
A wet room is the height of modern bathroom style and is ideal for maximising the sense of space, particularly when teamed with a soft colour palette and minimal styling. With no moving parts or doors to open and close, a wet room is also suitable for all ages and accessibility requirements.
Modern bathrooms can easily be achieved by adding all of the elements and ideas that we have shared with you. One element is not more important than another so make sure to include all of these within your bathroom to create a true modern look and feel.
The hi-tech Tact shower, for example, features an iPhone app for remote control, LED display with raised, illuminated, tactile push-button controls making it ideal for anyone with a visual impairment. In fact, it has been approved as such by the RNIB.Similarly, wall hung sanitaryware and basin units can have all the visual appeal of a contemporary state of the art bathroom, but can be mounted at a comfortable height for easy use by elderly family members including wheelchair users. Designs with softly rounded contours that are a safe and stylish alternative to sharp corners are ideal for both young children and older adults.
Add personality by combining multiple shades of green with exotic wood grains – perhaps adding metallic finishes for a tropical glasshouse look. Decorative floor tiles in bold trellis and geometric designs such as the Hackney range from bathstore will anchor the overall look. And plants have a hugely positive psychological effect on our happiness, so include plenty of moisture-loving ferns and palms.
