Bathroom. Friday , May 19th , 2017 - 04:21:13 AM
In this year‘s kitchen and bath show there was a definite sense of creative faucets that enhance your bathroom but also make life easier. From hand held faucets that grace the freestanding tub to deck mounted sinks that also offer the hand held sprayers. The sense of bringing kitchen faucet amenities to the bathroom is alive and well. Bathroom faucet manufacturers are starting to realize that the bathroom has the need for convenience and variety too.
A Japanese-style bathroom has a clear focus on relaxation and hygiene. It‘s important to understand that while these two concepts go together in this space, the Japanese believe in keeping them separated. Because the bathtubs are viewed as a place to soak, they are not primarily used as a place for bathing or cleanliness, and will not be found in large sizes like in many households today. Additionally, the toilet will always be found separate from a soaking tub. In many cases, a door or separate small space is created singularly for the toilet. If it‘s not possible to craft a separate room for the toilet in your given bathroom space, a DIY partition will suffice. A paper partition or hanging curtain will act as a barrier between the desire to relax and the necessity of hygiene. Behind that partition however, hygiene is of the upmost importance in a Japanese-style bathroom. In fact, most of these bathrooms do not host a standard toilet, but instead, utilize a bidet. These features are available in a variety of colors and sizes to fit bathrooms of all types.
Much like a Japanese garden, a Japanese style bathroom must be built with nature in mind. Utilizing greenery such as bamboo plants or mossy potted plants is a key element to creating the feeling that the peaceful natural world can exist within your walls. Placement of these plants is just as essential. Make sure that bamboo plants or potted moss is lined up in pleasing, lines that do not overwhelm the senses. Lighting is another essential element in your Japanese-style bathroom. In order to create a space where your mind is free to relax, harsh lights and bold fixtures should be avoided. Color schemes in Japanese style bathrooms should also be kept on the neutral or natural side depending upon your preferences. Do not forget to bring bamboo into your décor wherever possible, but with a clear purpose. Whether it‘s bamboo floors, trim or plants, it‘s a feature worth investing in.
