Whether it is for weekend guests, live-in grandparents or a bathroom of your own, this is one personal space that has its own special appeal. This attraction can be further enhanced with the well thought out use of quality and trendy furniture, fittings and accessories. Bathrooms may be built for functionality and comfort. It could be used as a dressing room or even for glorious self-indulgence in terms of luxury, personal needs, daily usage and style.
Cabinets for bathrooms should be made to last:
One should think things through before buying or constructing a bath cabinet. Narrow it down to one that suits the suite, shower and taps as well as your personal style. Making major changes to an existing bathroom does restrict the kind of bath cabinet you can have, but there is a wide range of cabinets to choose from and one is bound to find something that meets his/her needs.
There are the basic ones that offer shower facilities with a standard tray and simple enclosure. More sophisticated bath closets have booster pumps to increase the flow of water and the pressure of the spray. There are ones with jet sprays and shoulder sprays that produce massage actions along with hand shower options as well.
The ultimate luxury would be the classic and exclusive bath cabinets from the high-end range used in spas and up market hotels. These are bathing havens where one can listen to music and enjoy a solarium, a shower or a steam bath.
Antique fittings are another elegant option that can be used as an element to add colonial charm and character, while accentuating this area of the bathroom. Nostalgia buffs can find plenty of antique items to place in their bathrooms. These can be obtained from sales, junk and antique shops to give this personal space a period look. An old wash stand, chiffonier or a chest of drawers can be made into a vanity unit. It can be done by setting a basin on the top and timber or like material purchased to construct a bath cabinet along similar lines to give color and time coordinated look to the bathroom.
