4 Great Ideas for Fixtures and Features in Your New Bathroom

Custom-Homes-architect-Snook2

When you’re remodeling your bathroom or building a new home, you have the perfect opportunity to design and create your ideal bathroom. As one of the most important rooms in your house, your bathroom should be highly functional as well as luxurious. Here are some ideas from our architectural design team in NJ.

  1. Smart technology: Smart tech is increasingly becoming part of our homes as it synchs into our daily lives – and your bathroom is no different. With the right design, you can include interactive smart audio systems in your bathroom, so you can sing a long in the shower, answer calls or simply have the soothing sound of the ocean while you relax.
  2. Great lighting: Lighting is one of the most under-utilized features in a bathroom – and yet it’s essential for our daily routines! From task-specific lighting for shower areas and vanities to ambient lighting with dimmers that creates a welcoming, soothing atmosphere where you can relax, lighting creates the right mood and makes everyday activities easier. Skylights and sun tunnels are also great features, allowing you to get the benefit of natural lighting without the expense on your energy bill.
  3. Heating: With materials like stone, porcelain, ceramics and concrete, bathrooms are often the cold spot in the house – but they don’t need to be. Underfloor heating will take the chill away with ease and features like heated towel rails and even heated toilet seats, cold bathrooms will be a thing of the past. In addition, heating helps keep the space dry, preventing mold growth – especially when combined with a dehumidifier.
  4. Water-saving fixtures: By installing water-saving features, you cut down on costs and benefit the environment without sacrificing comfort or convenience. Modern low-flush toilets, showerheads and faucets deliver all the pressure you want while using a fraction of the water.
