Mastering the Bathroom
I really despise a standardized bathroom with white porcelain and plain taps that make a
bathroom look bland and uninviting. Traditionally that is what you would find in any given
bathroom regardless of where you are in the world. In my personal opinion, a bathroom
should be a place where you can pamper yourself and relax. It shouldn’t be about hopping
into the bath or brushing your teeth before you dash off to work.
I prefer to play with the layout of a bathroom a little. Placing the bath at an angle creates a
bit more perspective as opposed to sticking it in the back corner. The angle opens it up to
the rest of the bathroom, and changes the way you look at it.
In this particular bathroom I used stained glass for the windows, making them large scale
to allow a lot more natural light into the space to give it a warmer feel. Dark wooden floors
supplement the light and add to the warmth of the room, making it a good contrast to the
traditional tile flooring that everyone uses.
In a way, it’s great to think a little differently when it comes to bathrooms. You can break
away from the norm and create a unique look and feel to a place where you can wind down
after a hard days work.
