Using a dark floor anchors a room and gives it a feel of maturity and gravitas. Plus, it hides the occasional bit of dust or debris so the sparkling space won’t look out of sorts minutes after a cleaning.
Perhaps more than any other room in the house, the bathroom is a private retreat. It is a place where we perform important daily rituals and where we take the time to truly indulge ourselves with the wonderful luxury of solitude. The bathrooms collected here use their own design elements but have the luxury factor in common. The bathroom is not a place to skimp and none of these designs do.
Various materials can be used to clad the surfaces in a modern bathroom, from humble porcelain tile to luxe marble. However, a sturdy, natural stone like limestone, granite or travertine will deliver an excellent balance of function and beauty. Ultimately, in a sleek space with little flashy decoration, the materials need to bring the wow factor, and using a healthy dose of sumptuous stone is one of the most effective ways to give your space designer appeal.
Is the water pressure adequate? Run the cold water in the tub or shower and then flush the toilet: If the volume of running water diminishes noticeably, the pressure is low. Do you need a second sink? Is there enough ventilation, or does the bathroom fill with steam and remain damp for hours after every shower? Is the tile around the bath or shower tight or are there signs of deterioration at the corners or at the junction between the tile and the tub or shower base? Use the heel of your hand to exert some gentle pressure on the tile walls at the point where they join the tub or shower pan. Is there any give? Springy tile may indicate the wall has gotten damp and deteriorated over the years. The absence of a grout line and the presence of mold are signs that water may be seeping into the wall cavities.
