Rethinking the design of restrooms

frank lampard

It’s certainly not the sort of thing one mentions in polite company, so forgive us for mentioning public restrooms – but COVID is changing them, and before too long, you are bound to notice.

“The state of the American restroom? Well, it’s evolving,” said Kathryn Anthony, an architecture professor who thinks a lot about American restrooms. In fact, she is vice president of the American Restroom Association.

“There’s great room for improvement,” she told correspondent Richard Schlesinger. “And in this era of COVID, it’s more and more important that we all have clean, safe restrooms to go to.”

Right now, the American Restroom Association believes there are too many surfaces to touch, and too little privacy in the privy.

“These days, with COVID you just don’t want things spreading from one place to another,” said Anthony.

This may mean putting aside any thoughts of laying down miles of pink tile or installing that funky sink shaped like a wooden trough. No, this is one room where the classics should truly reign supreme.

4 Simple Ways To Accessorise Your Bathroom

frank lampard

Bathrooms are like a sanctuary for relaxation and solitude. So, you might have a beautiful home but your taste could be questionable if you do not have an equally well-designed bathroom. You want to feel refreshed when you step out of your bathroom and for that you require a revitalising ambiance. We have mentioned below some ways that would help you accessorise your bathroom with a sprinkle of elegance. 

4 Simple Ways To Accessorise Your Bathroom

1. Simplicity is the key

It’s extremely simple to get overpowered with subtleties. Your focus shouldn’t be on elaborate designs and expensive pieces, rather concentrate on the little things that draw your attention when someone first enters your bathroom. 

  • First and foremost, ensure that your bathroom always smells nice. Place some pleasantly scented candles on a shelf, use fragrant essential oils or, use an automatic air freshener. 
  • Consider adding a beautiful rug on your

We waited over 6 years to start our master bathroom renovation and now, nearly 6 months later, it’s fully completed! And you know what that means – the master bathroom curse that we discovered over the last month definitely seems to be in play (more on that here).

14 Genius Small Bathroom Design Ideas

14/14

Small bathrooms are a great place to do something fun! A bold tile, wall colour or wallpaper will do well in a small bathroom, as it’d likely seem too overwhelming in a larger space. That’s what <a href=”https://www.hgtv.ca/home-tours/photos/modern-meets-playful-home-tour-1913741/” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>designer Sabrina Albanese did in her bathroom in Keswick, ON</a>. However, make sure to pick just one funky pattern or colour (either for the wall or floor) as too much will be, well, too much.

3 Master Bathroom Features I’ve Come to Love

frank lampard

When my husband and I were in the market for a new home about 10 years ago, we had certain requirements that house needed to fulfill — a spacious kitchen, an attached garage, and a comfortable master bathroom. The latter was important, because in our previous house, we’d found ourselves routinely battling it out for space in front of our small master bathroom sink, and actually stepping on each other’s toes as we moved between the vanity and shower.

In our new home, we insisted on a larger master bathroom — but that wasn’t all. We also wanted certain features that would make that space even more usable and shareable, and now, 10 years later, I can say that I’m particularly grateful for the following.

1. Double sinks

Many couples share a single bathroom sink and get by just fine. But I’m the type who needs room to spread out
