Fixtures & Fittings – There are so many options with tapware and vanities now, it is sometimes hard to decide what style or colour to go for. Tapware can come in chrome, matt black, brushed nickel, gun metal, brushed brass, brushed copper, white, mix of chrome & black or chrome & white. Each coloured tap gives you a different look for your bathroom and depending on what colour tile you go for could depend on what colour tapware you want. But you do need to think about if you want your tapware to standout or just blend in, such as using black tapware on black tiles they won’t be seen that well and will blend in. Whereas the black tile on a vanity with a white top or black towel rails and toilet rolls holders on light paint coloured walls will stand out.
Getting the right coloured tapware and accessories is a big decision so you can get the right look you want for the bathroom. Vanity colour is also something to really consider when planning colours and tiles in the room. If you have a lots going on in the space through tiles and tapware, you need to think about whether you want to then put more features or details in on the vanity finish, it may be too much. But if you used simple tiles and a light woodgrain coloured vanity that can be your feature and it can be a nice way to bring a soft and warm colour into the room.
A dark woodgrain vanity can look good if you have a dark tile on the shower walls and the floor but everything else is nice and simple. When looking for places to shop I love ABI interiors, Bath & co and Zip Plumbing.
Lighting – This can be a very nice way of softening the space or creating a different atmosphere. Pendant lights above the vanity and next to the mirrors are a lovely way to create a moody relaxing bathroom. But you also need to think about lighting for your face whether this is for applying make up or shaving, its so nice to be able to see with a good task light. This can be done with a vanity wall light, spot light in the ceiling or with the LED mirrors, they are all as good as each other.
