With a New Year just beginning it is the perfect time to think about buying a new bathroom for your home. Of course there are a wide variety of options available when you're looking for the perfect bathroom ranging from classic traditional designs to ultra-modern contemporary ones. But what are the key differences between traditional and contemporary bathrooms and which style is best suited to your needs? This article lists some of the primary features and elements of each bathroom style and will help you to decide which one is right for your home.
The size of your bathroom will be an important factor when deciding between modern and traditional bathrooms. If you have a small space a contemporary bathroom may be your best option because contemporary design is focused on making the best use of all available space however limited it may be. Contemporary bathrooms are often characterised by sharp clean lines and minimalist features which create a real sense of space. Thus if you want a bathroom which is as functional and effective as possible in terms of utilising space a contemporary bathroom with space-saving features such as a corner bath and wall-mounted furniture is likely to best meet your requirements.
Either tiles or wooden floors can be used. Tiles should be a rustic colour and can be used to create elaborate mosaics. Wooden floors should be varnished to match the furniture. Decorating may see a stenciled motif used as a border and the technique of rubbing paint on the walls with a sponge gives the room that worn natural look. Toilets with high level cisterns and pull chains are very rare these days but a must have for the country bathroom as are traditional taps for the bath and basin. Just about any kind of free-standing bath will suit the country bathroom. If wishing to have a shower a tiled walk-in shower is the advisable option with a curtain to conceal the area. For the final touch add wicker baskets filled with pot pouri wire basket shelves and stylish wall lamps.
One of the most appealing things about the traditional bathroom is clutter gives it more of a lived-in effect thus enhancing the traditional look. Don't be afraid to put plenty of pictures on the walls - black and white family portraits in gold frames are a good look. A chest of drawers or corner table with scented candles aromatherapy oils or flowers will really bring the room to life. As a finishing touch an old style set of weighing scales a large framed mirror or bulky traditional radiator will give the room that cozy old-fashioned feel.
