How does your Bathroom scrub up? Is it the place you brush your teeth, comb your hair, wash your face and then exit? Or is it a haven of calm and collection? A place where you can simply be? Is it a place to collect your thoughts as you prepare for the day? A place to relax with a glass of wine and a soak?
It is clear that bathrooms are increasingly less of a “wash room” and so much more of a retreat. The notion of a bathroom (especially during this global pandemic) is absolutely being transformed into enjoying a sanctuary. The amount of luxe and glamour is up to you!
Alcoves and Niches
These are perfect as space savers, gorgeous as aesthetic structural display pieces and practically provide perfect ease in a room dedicated to cleanliness and restoration. Although these two words are invariably interchangeable; traditionally an alcove is located in the dry zone of the bathroom (near the basin or toilet), whilst a niche is generally located in the wet zones – the shower recess or by the bath.

You come home; it’s been a long day. Your shower recess has a rainwater head, some fabulously attractive tiles and a shower seat. You can sit, soak and replenish as you sit transfixed on the wall tiles before you. You emerge clean, clear and relaxed. Perfection.
The WOW Factor
Speaking of fabulous bathrooms captivating your attention, let’s allow our projects to do the talking.
WOW factors and showstopping elements….
Every Bathroom in your home should be a haven: from the Ensuite in the Master Suite, to the Main Bathroom for the family, to the Powder Room for your guests. More and more people are utilising their bathroom sanctuaries to unwind and relax, providing space for restoration and rejuvenation after a stressful day.
Either side by side on the one vanity, or in opposite corners of the room, double basins allow multiple to use the space at once, which can be a godsend in the morning!
An unsightly bathroom is likely a space you will not enjoy. A bathroom full of electrical cords – electric shavers, electric toothbrushes, hairdryers and hair straighteners is not conducive to relaxation. Your bathroom should display your beauty products, not cords!
