The one thing that can annoy even the most placid of us is lack of storage in the bathroom, but that is a problem that can be easily overcome by fitting a Bristan Gallery Glass Shelf. The shelf can be easily added to any bathroom, the shelf is square profile glass, surrounded by a rail to stop items form being accidentally knocked off. The Bristan is offered in either a chrome or gold finish and naturally has concealed fixings.

Laying in a warm bath is sure to relax, but why not take it to the next level by adding The Kaldewei Soundwave Bath Sound System which turns the bath into a giant loudspeaker. By using the movement of the water, this replicates both the sound as well as the gentle rippling of the water. You can use the Kaldewei sound system with or without water in the bath water so even if you’re in the shower you can listen to your favourite songs at the touch of a button. The system is also compatible with your iPad, iPhone, laptop or any Bluetooth enabled device and can be paired with up to 8 devices at a time.

Designing a small modern en suite

One of the most luxurious things you can add to your home is your own en suite bathroom. Unfortunately, many homes don’t have a lot of room where they can build one, but even a wardrobe sized space can fit a tiny en suite, and there are plenty of ways to make it feel a little bit bigger than it really is.

If you want your en suite to look modern and uncluttered, you need to be careful what you choose to put in there. Try to keep the number of bottles and towels low or store what you need in the bedroom. If you really need some storage in the en suite itself, have open shelves so you’re not calculating how much room you can spare for doors and drawers.

Lighting is one of the easiest ways to improve a small room. If there’s no window, it’s particularly important to design your lighting strategically. Halogen spot lights will brighten the room within invading the space, and using mirror or mirrored surfaces to bounce the light will work wonders.

Choosing the right tiling too will make a huge difference to how your little en suite looks – the lighter the colour of the tiles, the better. Anything reflective or lightly coloured will make the space seem much larger. The size of the tiles is also important – very large ones can give the illusion of a more open room, and very small ones, such as mosaic tiling will have the same effect. Too much repetition on medium sized tiles will shrink the room though.

You should always remember to measure your shower, storage cupboard and toilet fixtures before installing them in a small bathroom and figure out the layout first. They might appear to fit but block your access to the door or shower if not laid out properly.

 

Those all important last details in bathroom design

Bathroom accessories are often overlooked when people are making the last but important details when completing a new bathroom or en-suite, but it is these that can pull together what is already a good bathroom, giving it a classy look. Think what would happen without soap dishes, you don’t want a sticky mess on the side of the basin or bath. A towel rail is a must and in today’s modern bathroom a heated one is a priority for many. You would not want the toilet roll sitting on top of the cistern, not when you can get one that looks good and is fully functional too.

It is these little details that can make your bathroom a pleasure to use or a nightmare in the making. If you’ve ever wondered where to store your bathrobe while you are taking a shower, longed for a magnified or illuminated mirror to apply your makeup, or thought there must be an alternative to balancing your toothbrush in a mug on the windowsill then modern bathroom accessories are the way forward.
