Before choosing the colours, finishes and structures one should plan a LAYOUT i.e, decide where to place the bathing tub, counter top, sink, storage depending on their use and the available space. When you may be wandering about a standing shower, your younger ones may require a bath tub. Another crucial point to look after during this process is the lighting and ventilation part. The position of lighting plays a key role in your bathroom's functionality and mood. However, the common problem of moisture and odour can be reduced by maintaining good ventilation.Wether to move the plumbing or keep it intact should be done according to one's budget as displacing the plumbing costs higher.

Drop in Sink

They are placed in cut-outs in the counter-top with a visible rim that rests on the counter. However, the gap where the sink joins the counter is filled with silicon to avoid the deposition of dirt and scum.

A bathroom's mood and functionality is greatly influenced by the position of lighting in the ceiling. It's important to think of areas like toilet, vanity or feature wall where a good amount of light is required. While installing a light over the tap, make sure there are lights on either sides of the mirror so that, equal amount of light hits both sides of your face and the shadow is avoided. Similarly, light should be even and come from front light is necessary while shaving or applying make-up. However, a relaxing and warmer tone should be set over bath and strong bright light over the vanity will serve great purpose. Pendant light is a stylish option for vanity lights. Last but not the least, perimeter lighting gives a cozy glow to your space.

So, position the lights wisely in the bathroom while remembering to set them in levels!

Don’t be shy with colours!

Go for tones of green or blue if you want to set tranquil mood in your bathroom. Add a wow factor to your bathroom with a textured wall.

For all-white lovers, a white themed bathrooms can be beefed up by adding some base notes like a black frame work or faucet. Another great idea can be to change colours with the LEDs which are available in variety of colours.
