Cove lighting creates a gap between the wall and the finely done tile mosaic wall making it more appealing to the human eyes. Here, the bathtub is highlighted by the natural light it receives coming from the window. The designer wants to project a cool ocean-like atmosphere in the room by using tiles in shades of blue. The idea is to create a soothing and relaxing feel of the water.
To minimize space, you can use corner sinks, corner showers or corner baths. Choose the right size and style of sink. You may opt for a vanity unit, a pedestal a wall hung or an en-suite. Some bathrooms have a couch inside. You can actually use your creativity and choose the furniture to use that would suit your style. You can even use an antique dresser as your bathroom vanity. Choose the right size and shape for your bath tub and showers. Some even have saunas, whirlpool baths and spas. Make a unique look by customizing your bathroom. Also, consider concrete or limestone as surfacing material for a cool and clean look.
Always plan according to the needs of the primary user. This is important so you will know what kind of materials and features you need. A bathroom for children and adult would have different needs and you would use different features, too. For a child's bathroom, use non-skid surfaces and rounded edge to avoid injury. You can also place anti-slip mats. You can have adaptations for disabled persons by having grab rails to walls and close to the toilet. Consider a wall-hung sink so that people who use wheelchairs can move closer to it with ease.
