Sparkling Bathroom Design Ideas For City Apartments

Sparkling Bathroom Design Ideas For City Apartments

If you are a city dweller with a modern outlook, you probably expect a lot from the design of a new bathroom. Apartments often present a problem because many of the bathrooms have no windows. The lack of a natural light source can make the space seem dull and dingy. Luckily, we have more materials and fittings available to us today than at any time in the past, and we can use them to make the room look bright and welcoming.

Here are my sparkling bathroom design ideas for city apartments.

Walls & Floor

You must tile the walls and floor; it has become standard in all of the best bathroom designs. The choice of tiles is vital because if you get it wrong it could have the opposite effect to that you desire. If you were to select small tiles with dark, intricate patterns, the room would close in and become a claustrophobic place. On the other hand, rectangular tiles measuring about twelve inches by ten, with a light stone effect will look great in a little space. You can do the tiling as a DIY project if you take your time and work accurately. Indeed it can be a therapeutic exercise.

Shower Cubicle

It is best to install a shower cubicle if you have room. Many people opt to do away with the bath to free up space. That can lead to arguments when one member of the couple loves to have a soak, and the other prefers to shower. A futuristic shower bath will solve the problem to the satisfaction of both parties. The L shaped units are wide at one and have a flat base for safety. They are attractive and take up little more room than a standard bath.

Don’t use shower curtains in the bathroom, a glass screen will is a better choice. Because it is clear, it will not obstruct your view and make the room look small.

Wash Basin

Twin vanity units are a necessity these days, but you could have one long sink such as the one in the image. It doesn’t take up quite as much room as double sinks, but two people can still use it at the same time when they need to.

Use Lighting To Your Advantage

The brighter the room is, the more spacious and airy it will look. Halogen bulbs give off a lot of heat, but the new LED alternatives are perfect for the job. They use a tiny amount of electricity and give out the crisp white light you need in this space. There is no limit to the number of fittings you can install. There are units to go into the shower cubicle, the ceiling, the walls and even the floor.

Bounce the light around the room with mirrors. How you use them is a matter of choice. Some people cover a wall with mirror tiles and others prefer to place one or two items for the best effect.

As you can see, there are many tricks you can employ to create a modern and attractive space suitable for a city apartment. Visit the showrooms today to see what is on offer; the choice will astound you. Remember that quality should be your first consideration and your project is sure to be a success.
