Re-create Your Own Version of These Italian Villa Bathrooms From Palazzo Avino

frank lampard

Perched atop a hill with cascading green terraces near Italy’s Amalfi Coast sits Palazzo Avino, a 12th-century private villa turned boutique hotel in the enchanting town of Ravello. “It’s a magical village, suspended in time and space,” says architect and designer Cristina Celestino, who recently completed a capsule collection of seven rooms and suites for the hotel that are full of captivating colors, exquisite natural stone, and delightful historical details.

“The hotel is like a pink mirage amidst terraces of olive and citrus trees,” describes Cristina.

Because of the building’s history, each of the hotel’s rooms and suites is distinct, with its own unique layout. For her capsule project, Cristina took cues from “the wonders of the Italian gardens of Ravello, and the odyssey of forgotten legends of the Tyrrhenian Sea,” she reflects, creating a captivating, alluring atmosphere through the use of light, color, and material selections. She emphasized existing

Tokyo’s Newest Public Bathroom Features Transparent Walls

frank lampard

The idea of using a public bathroom with transparent exterior walls would likely cause most people’s sphincters to twitch in horror.

So it may surprise you to learn that such a facility was recently installed in a park in Tokyo, Japan. In reality, using the bathroom isn’t really as daunting as it may at first seem, as the see-through walls automatically turn opaque when you go inside and lock the door. Just don’t forget to lock the door.

The unique restroom has been installed as part of the Nippon Foundation’s Tokyo Toilet Project. The initiative is aimed at improving the reputation of public bathrooms, which, according to the foundation, many people consider to be “dark, dirty, smelly, and scary” places.

Sixteen prominent architects have each been assigned a public bathroom in the city’s bustling

How to Remodel a Handicapped Bathroom | Home Guides

frank lampard

Making a bathroom accessible to people who have a disability can greatly improve their quality of life within the home. Bathrooms have specific challenges for those who use wheelchairs or walkers, or who have mobility problems. Solving these problems during a remodel can help to make the bathroom more user-friendly and accessible for elderly or handicapped members of the household.

Entry and Turning Radius

If you are modifying the bathroom for a person who uses a wheelchair or a walker, make sure the doorway to the bathroom is large enough for her to enter comfortably. Typically, this means expanding the doorway to about 36 inches wide to accommodate a turn from a hallway into the bathroom. Additionally, once inside the bathroom, the person using a walker or wheelchair needs enough space to turn around completely. This turning radius is typically 60 inches of clear space in the center of the

Bathroom of Tomorrow: Shower & Bath Tech of 2020

frank lampard

Oh, bathrooms — a place in the house where so much happens. You shower, shave, perform your skin-care routine, and so much more. As technology gets smarter, bathrooms do, too. You might have thought that your mini skin-care fridge was impressive, that you had a fancy faucet, or that your LED lighted mirror was high-tech, but folks, you haven’t seen anything yet.

We dived deep to explore the ways the bathrooms of the future will look and believe us, you’ll never want to leave, and you probably won’t have to. Here are seven ways we predict that bathrooms will change (for the better) in the future.

1. A truly fantastic mirror

The bathroom of the future, like the anything of the future, will have a brain of its own. Only a battle of intelligence among the smartest of your smart objects can crown the room’s thought leader, but we like

How to Design a Bathroom With Color | Home Guides

frank lampard

Orange and blue are a good combination for a high-contrast theme.

The small size of most bathrooms makes them excellent areas to play with color. While a bright or dark color scheme might overwhelm a large room, the bathroom’s close confines keep color under control. If you prefer a tranquil, spa-like atmosphere, muted, natural tones feel calm, but don’t have enough space to become boring. The best thing about trying out new color schemes in the bathroom is that if you don’t like the finished look, you can paint the room over again in a day.

Bright Feels Right

If your bathroom is small and poorly lit, as many are, the judicious use of bright colors can give it a cheery, open appearance. To keep the look exuberant, not riotous, use bright accessories against a backdrop of white or another soft neutral. Picture walls painted a soft gray, sand, creamy white or palest sage, sparked by bright towels, a gaily patterned

The Travel John is a disposable urinal in a bag, and it’s finding new popularity among those who don’t want to use public restrooms.

It’s a real head scratcher, but I wasn’t about to let a little tinkle trouble stand between me and the open road. I’m a man of action, a man of ideas, and, apparently, I’m also now a man who urinates in plastic bags. COVID-19 has made 2020 mighty surreal, but for me the most surreal moment of them all was opening an umbrella in my
