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.
Large scale tiles are definitely on trend when it comes to bathroom floors right now. If you choose to go that direction, you can use the same tile cut in smaller sizes in a different area of the bathroom. For example if you use 12 x 24 tiles on the floor, you can use the same tile on the bathroom floor in 2 x 2s to continue the color across the entire floor, but creating a more slip free shower floor. For the kid's bathroom I wanted to go with something classic and something very light and airy. There are no windows in this bathroom so I wanted something that would bounce around as much light as possible. As soon as I saw this tumbled hexagon tile at The Tile Shop I knew we had to use it on the floor. This was my must have tile and would also act as the show stopper since it is a little bit unexpected and has a lot of pattern. I also knew that I wanted to do grey cabinets to keep with the color scheme of my home, so we ended up choosing a larger than normal scale (4 x 8) matte white subway tile for the shower surround. It comes in both a glossy and matte finish and after getting both samples we are going to go with the matte.
Typically you will choose a floor tile, a wall tile for the shower/ tub surround or even all of the walls in your bathroom, and an accent tile that will be used as a focal point. This is just a guideline. Don't be afraid to break the rules a little bit. There are so many beautiful tiles out there and a bathroom is a perfect place to show off some of your personality and take a risk with a fun color or pattern on your tiles. However, if you are going to go for it, keep it to one show stopper. This will make your look timeless and really create the wow factor that you are going for since it won't be competing with the other elements in the room. (Many of these super special tiles can be pricey, but if you are working in a small area like a bathroom, they might just be the splurge you need since you won't need very many square feet.
