A more Zen spa-like feel comes from this bathroom’s unique combination of wall covering basin shape and cabinets design. Wall-mounted faucets over the round dark basins have a natural feel and the design on the wall evoked feelings of running water. The natural wood surround globe sconces and six-sided minimalist mirrors add to the calm vibe. A dash of luxury comes from the looped glass ceiling fixture.
Tighter spaces don’t have to mean fewer amenities as demonstrated by this linear mounted bathtub from Oceania. The Optimale model allows the bathtub and glass shower to be installed in a linear fashion offering another option for a small bathroom. The “in-line” arrangement is a contemporary look that increases the functionality of the bathroom providing a separate tub and shower as opposed to the ubiquitous tub/shower combo found in nearly every home.
In an innovative use of technology Oceania’s Tahoe 66 tub can be turned into the ultimate skin care product with the company’s NanoSens jet system. The jets are unlike any other spa-type tub because the system oxygenates the water with micro bubbles that can penetrate pores. Oceania reps say that this improves skin moisturization making it baby-soft and and even easing skin conditions such as eczema.
But sometimes décor just won’t cut it. One of the most cost-effective ways that you can achieve a successful bathroom upgrade whether it’s a large or small bathroom remodel is to look into DIY bathroom remodel options. Sounds intimidating? It doesn’t need to be.
Bathrooms today are more than just a functional space. They’re the room that we often retreat to for self-pampering or a spa-like experience. If you’re looking into bathroom remodeling you have likely found such a spectrum of costs and designs that it’s hard to know where to cut costs and what options are available.
Bathroom remodeling materials will require a little background research before you make all your design decisions. For example if you fall in love with some tile for your floor make sure it’s durable enough for flooring (grade 1 or 2) and not designed for walls (thinner grade 3). Wood floors in a full bath where water can (and will) soak the floor from time to time are discouraged; tile floors with a coefficient of friction (COF) rating of 0.60 or higher are preferred.
