And you don't have to worry about ending up with an institutional look. Many universal design features are now part of mainstream bathroom design. For example, the larger shower stall that's in favor today offers easy access and universal use, provided it has a zero-threshold and a built-in seating platform. “The bench is also a nice place for an able-bodied women to sit and shave her legs,” says Cheetham. Regarding toilets, so-called comfort-height models that are easier to get on and off of are now just as common as standard-height models. Even grab bars have enjoyed a design upgrade; many now match towel bars and other accessories. And they're not just for the elderly. Grab bars make it easier for pregnant women or young children to get in and out of the bathtub.
What are some flooring options for a modern bathroom? When it comes to deciding on your bathroom flooring, you pretty much have free rein—as long as your chosen material can withstand the inevitable wet and humid conditions. Untreated wood is never going to work, let's be honest. Instead, opt for tiles or natural stone (if you have the budget), or go for a vinyl or laminate. The choices are many and varied, with an array of colours, textures and patterns at your disposal. It's really important that your flooring is installed properly, and is thoroughly watertight—so seek professional help if needed. The best way to accessorize a modern bathroom is to keep it functional. Remember that the overall look and feel should be calm and uncluttered, so avoid too many trinkets or those beach shells you collected from Cornwall when you were nine. First things first, you need to nail your storage options.
Install a drop-in or hand-painted sink into a free-standing cabinet or chest. It will look like a separate piece of furniture. Or drop a custom-designed sink into a marble or solid-surface countertop for an elegant look. The newest look in bathroom sinks shows a large bowl mounted on the top of a bathroom counter. Artists and designers are using all sorts of material, such as marble, hand-blown glass, gold-leafed glass, or shiny metals. Before selecting a sink of this design, be sure that the height will be convenient to use and that the bowl will be safe. Lighting, by all means, get rid of that yellowed fan- heater-overhead light that's hanging in the middle of your bathroom. Lighting for a redesigned bathroom (and other rooms, as well) is more directed at work areas. Soft light for a soaking bath can be achieved with a wall dimmer connected to any lighting. Choose some beautiful wall sconces for either side of the mirror, a sparkling chandelier for overhead, or place a small table lamp on the counter or dressing table area.
