Bathroom vanities The benefit of built-in bathroom furniture is that it makes the most of the space available, including awkward places that would otherwise be left unused. Vanity units, which are essentially bathroom cabinets that sit around the base of a sink, are one of the most common types of built-in furniture. You can have one that covers the sink pedestal or, to make even more use of the space, consider having a 'floating' basin that sits on top of a unit or is embedded into it. You can also get combination bathroom vanity units that adjoin a sink and toilet to create one large cabinet. These are good if your bathroom is small as they make use of often-wasted space between a sink and toilet. Vanity units, depending on their size, can include various storage options. Think again about the questions above and what you'll be storing – would you want shelves inside the cabinets for pull-out baskets, or even drawers, for example? Also think about what you'll need to make space for, such as a loo-roll holder and the storage of toilet paper, as some vanity units include space for these items.
Fixture Metals and Finishes. It's best to stick with the same type of finish for all the bathroom hardware. Most people also choose to go with the same style. These two factors ensure your bathroom has a designer look and a cohesive design. However, some people prefer a more eclectic look and often go with a mix of styles in the same finish. This is a purely personal choice. If you decide this is your personal style, be sure to keep the style mix balanced. Otherwise, the eclectic look will elude your design leaving only a hodgepodge look that doesn't work. Popular Fixture/Hardware Metal and Finishes. Most metal finishes used in bathroom fixtures are available in brushed, satin, polished, antiqued and satin. The metal finishes can be high-end expensive solid metals or plated metals known as PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating of thin layers of metals, such as aluminum, chromium, titanium, and other metals. Copper: Copper is used in many hand-crafted sinks and tubs. The hammered finish is a popular style for this metal. If you want a unique metal that's also antimicrobial and resists mildew and mold, common problems with bathroom, this is it.
Your show stopper area can be big or small, it's up to you. The good majority of this bathroom is done in pretty basic white tile, but they added a wow factor with this beautiful tile at the top. Again the colors in this bathroom are pretty neutral, but the focal point is definitely the back wall of this shower. I love the idea of going with a really fun tile on the floor of a bathroom and keeping the rest of the space neutral. I don't like to clean. I especially don't like to clean the tub and shower so when choosing tile for these very wet areas you will probably want to go with porcelain or ceramic tile since they are virtually maintenance free. (You will want to double check to see if they need to be sealed.) Tiles make from natural stone require more maintenance and do have to be sealed. They are definitely more pours so they tend to hold on to dirt and grim more. If you are wanting to add texture with stone, it may be a good idea to use it on the floor or in a less wet area. Lastly, glass tile is so pretty and makes a great wall or accent tile. It is super slippery, so it doesn't work well on the floor.
