Building a new home is the perfect opportunity to find inspiration by looking at display homes, Perth home designs and house and land packages, to see the work of home builders and consult with interior designers.
One of the most exciting rooms to design and create is the bathroom.
While the bathroom can be overlooked, with your WA home builders you can create the ultimate ‘wow’ factor. You deserve a beautiful looking space to relax in while getting ready for work or soaking in a bath after a long day, so why not surround yourself with things you need – and want?
Here are some design inspiration tips to build the best new home bathroom – perfect for your family home.
Work with your Perth home builders of choice to create the most functional storage spaces in your bathroom. When you walk through display homes in Perth, take notes on where creative solutions are used. A minimal vanity can hide its drawers, shelves spaced between studs are ideal for baskets and towels, and use wall hung containers for dental care items. New Generation’s Iconic display home can show you how much storage space can really be placed in a dream bathroom!
Natural lighting is warm and inviting, so why not make the most of it? We spend a lot of time looking in the mirror so bringing in daylight can make a big difference. Where possible, think floor-to-ceiling windows, but if there’s not a lot of natural light available, consider uplights or LED downlights, a Create Your Own inclusion. If you’ve looked at home designs in Perth and picked a two-storey home design, take advantage of the view in your bathroom and consider bi-folds instead of ordinary windows.
Cleaning made easy
Save time on cleaning your dream bathroom with clever wall mounted toilets, vanities and faucets. Using solid-surface choices for your walls, vanity and floors will not only add beauty to your bathroom, but you won’t have to worry about cleaning grout. At Perth home builder New Generation Homes, you have the luxury of creating your own look with a big selection of Essastone benchtops – which come with the choice of a double vanity upgrade! Just check out the Taylor display home to see how it can be done.
Mirrored wall placement
Next time you go through some Perth display homes, see what type of mirrors are used to create the illusion of a bigger space. Ask yourself, how does a standard mirror above a vanity stack up against mirrors running wall-to-wall without visible fixings?
Ensure adequate ventilation
Ventilation is vital in bathrooms because moisture in the air can lead to condensation and mould growth, and there are simple ways to avoid this as well as foggy mirrors and dampness. A big standard window or bi-folds is the obvious choice, but look at ventilated skylights, exhaust fans and roof windows as well.
