Adding the Right Finishing Touches to Your Bathroom Design

Posted by on Sep 24, 2012 | Leave a Comment

Every bathroom design includes a bath, toilet, basin and vanity. Well thought out designs fit in storage for convenience and enough floor space to move comfortably about the room. But it’s the finishing touches that truly make your home shine, and the bathroom is no exception. Make sure these vital pieces find a home in your bathroom design.

Floating Shelves

Available in a wide variety of sizes and styles, floating shelves provide an area for display or offer additional storage space. Take advantage of narrow walls by mounting a collection of shelves. The most attractive type use very small or hidden brackets to evoke the floating look and keep in line with contemporary designs.

Look for clear floating shelves in modern shapes, like the Adatto Casa glass shelf, or opt for the more classic appearance of a wood shelf finished in striking dark stain, like the Adatto Casa Wenge unit. Combine a longer 1200mm shelf with a pair of 600mm units for a curated look.

Organize the Vanity

Keep your bathroom design free from clutter by adding practical tools to organize the vanity and/or storage cabinet. A drawer separator, Baushaus has a few sizes available, helps you to maintain a tidy spot for small toiletries and toothpaste. Buy the right size for your drawer and pair with attractive plastic bins in various colours.

Drawer liners extend the life of your cabinetry and keep tiny things in their place. And various organizers help to keep the under-basin area neat. Think about installing sliding shelves in cabinets and extendable towel racks for hanging out cleaning clothes and hand towels.

Capture the Laundry

Laundry tends to pile up in the bathroom, and incorporating storage and sorting in your bathroom design handles this eventuality nicely. Pick up an attractive wicker laundry basket with cloth-lined lid for a casual bathroom. Or mount this attractive wire laundry basket against the inside of your cabinet door or tucked into a corner for a modern design. These baskets make laundry collection easy and help to maintain order in your beautiful, new bathroom.

The finishing touches do not account for much of the budget, but they can make all the difference in terms of function. Add floating shelves, vanity organizers, a laundry basket and anything else that displays your style to make your new bathroom better than ever.
