Bathroom / January 30, 2018 / Ailani Hawley.
Even taps have had a makeover and extended lever handle versions not only look beautiful but are also designed to be easy to turn off for those young and old whose grip or dexterity may be limited. All in all, it means you can have a bathroom that looks a million dollars and is safe for everyone to use, be they five or 85.
The challenge is achieving that middle ground. How do you infuse warmth into the space while still benefiting from stylistic contrasts, and how do you keep it from looking too clinical? Take a look at our suggestions below; we’re confident that you can put together a space that’s as comfortable as it is stylish.
Embrace the utility chic trend with a monochrome colour scheme, period-style sanitaryware and a roll top bath. Teaming industrial “brick” tiles in black and white with a bold geometric floor tile creates a modern twist on the classic Victorian hallway. For a safe environment and to reduce the risk of potential falls, opt for a low-slip option.
Futureproofing your bathroom by making it accessible to older people is a practical trend in modern bathroom design – possibly because more of us are now living in multi-generational households. Products such as low-slip floor tiles, lower level baths and furniture and accessories that are designed to make bathing easier for all can be incorporated into any scheme.
