Nothing helps you to relax more than soaking in a warm bath filled with your favorite aromas and scents.
Your bathroom should be your haven; your little hide away where you can unwind and let the stresses of a hectic lifestyle simply melt away.
All too often the bathroom is probably one of the most neglected rooms in the home with many people seeing it as a functional and practical space rather than something to be admired.
While a bathroom in itself serves a necessary purpose, it can offer a wonderful place to hide away and retreat; just lock the door, light some candles, play some relaxing music and you have a perfect environment to just sit back and momentarily forget about everything and everyone else.
Regardless of the size of your bathroom, you can still achieve an organised and organic feel while still maintaining the practical element. While modern housing may compromise on size, you as a home owner need not compromise on style.
Whether your personal preferences are classical or edge towards contemporary, there are a range of baths to suit purpose and price. The bath itself should be the focal point of your bathroom, without looking out of proportion. It can be all too easy to select a bath that may be beautiful both in looks and size, but realistically it may not be the right bath for the space you have.
One of the most important things to consider when purchasing a bathroom is space. No matter what size or shape your bathroom is, there will be a number of baths that will fit well into the space without being over imposing or looking awkward and misplaced.
Everyone had their own ideas when it comes to interiors, and the same goes for bathrooms. While some prefer to choose a more refined, classical elegance, others delve to the other end of the spectrum and select a bath that is neat, stylistic and contemporary.
Contemporary baths do sit well in smaller bathrooms. The sleek lines and simple shapes often give a sense of space where as a roll top bath style will take up more space and certainly look disjointed and perhaps even a little untidy. On the other hand larger and more sizeable bathrooms can cope with the size and dimensions of the more classically stylised baths. From elegant roll top cast iron baths with their ornate accessories to the more modern freestanding stone baths that are often the focal point of the bathroom itself.
Long gone are the days when a standard square bath was considered the norm. With such a vast amount of styles, finishes and materials available today, modern baths can offer so much more than practicality.
When combined with the correct fixtures, fittings and other accessories, your bathroom could soon become your sanctuary, and with a bath that fits into your own personal style and criteria, you can create an atmosphere that will refresh, revitalise and enhance not only your home, but the way in which you make use of the space.
