Homes are rapidly progressing to be as high-tech and smart as possible – and the bathroom is no exception.
With the introduction of new technology to the market and vast amounts of choice to suit different tastes, there has never been a better time to upgrade this all important room.
Features that were once either purely functional or purely aesthetic can now work both ways, and even small bathrooms can be modernised to create a truly individual space.
Here are 10 fantastic ideas to help you create the perfect bathroom:
While a more neutral wall paint or paper may be more your taste, that doesn’t mean you can’t add colour to your floors. A brightly coloured tile or painted floorboards can make the difference between a standard bathroom and one with personality.
Gone are the days of stepping into a freezing cold shower – for a truly high-tech bathroom you could invest in a luxurious digital shower that can be set to perfect temperature before you even get in.
A feature wall can add a splash of personality to a room and be coordinated with furnishings to create an elegant look. Think about going for bold colours or even waterproof vinyl wallpapers.
Using a pane of Pilkington Texture Glass over a painted wall could be a unique way to add a contemporary feel. You could even use this decorative glass for features such as partitions to maintain a sense of light and space.
Changing a room’s lighting is a quick and easy way to completely alter the atmosphere, and making use of features like colour changers will significantly upgrade your bathroom. You could also consider getting creative with your mirrors by including technology like sensor lighting around the edges.
Get a spa-like experience at home with tailored showers. Products such as colour-changing heads and aromatherapy showers are now widely available, helping to make the everyday that little bit more luxurious.
There’s no reason to consign digital screens to other rooms of the house – Pilkington MirroView allows them to be concealed when switched off, with the surface looking like a normal mirror. So you can have a high-tech screen while still maintaining a light, reflective feature in your bathroom… plus you can catch up on your favourite shows while enjoying a soak in the bath!
Consider switching to underfloor heating for a sleek, minimalistic modern bathroom space – or upgrade your existing radiators to a contemporary towel rail.
Make the most of your bathroom by fitting it with toughened mirror-like Pilkington Mirropane Chrome, a high clarity mirrored glass which can help to create light and the illusion of more space.
These mirrors also resistant to corrosion – perfect for applications in a bathrooms, wet rooms and cloakrooms.
With the introduction of new, neater towel warming options, you can create more space in your bathroom by removing the need for large and cumbersome towel rails.
Smart homes are becoming increasingly popular and there are plenty of features in bathrooms that can be controlled by apps. Everything from lighting to showers can now be controlled from one device – you could even consider a digital screen in your bathroom to sync all your smart products to.
