Bathroom / January 13, 2018 / Aniyah Augustine.
Prospective home buyers often value bathrooms greatly, but a home not having a good mix of bathrooms might sell poorly. Full and three-quarter baths in a home are often more attractive than half-baths at home sale time, for one. And home buyers with children often want home bathrooms with tubs for the kids and showers for the adults. However, as the size and amenities in a bathroom grow, so does the cost.
Dive into the deep with this season’s favourite blue. Rich, inky indigo (above) will add a dramatic splash of coastal chic when teamed with sea green. Keep it modern with a voluminous contemporary style freestanding bathtub as the centrepiece and team with clean-lined chrome accessories.
A walk-in shower that provides easier access for granny, for example, can be recessed to the ideal height for parents bathing toddlers and young children. Likewise, a low slip tiled floor option means that elderly grandparents and boisterous toddlers are all equally catered for when it comes to safety in a wet environment. Choose a design that is bold and contemporary and you will please the style conscious members of the family too.Leading UK retailers such as bathstore now offer the Easy Bathing range, thoughtful designs specifically intended to put safety and accessibility as high up on the agenda as contemporary style and aesthetics.
A neutral palette teamed with white sanitaryware is a classic combination that will never date. Add a contemporary touch with a single large-scale tile design for the floor and walls to unify the different zones within the space and incorporate “future-proof” furniture such as handrails and shower seats with a modern aesthetic that are designed to make bathing safer.
