They will really set off your bathroom design and take your bathroom to another level.

Lighting in bathroom design – Choosing lighting is an important aspect of bathrooms. You need to be able to see yourself properly, for example when applying make-up. When you’re single or living with adults, you might want to choose lights that create an atmosphere, with accent lights where you need it most, like above the basin. This will give you great freedom in creating the ambiance you want. If you have a family, brighter main lighting in bathrooms will be necessary to secure safety by lighting all the areas, so that corners and wet patches on the floor get noticed. If you live with smaller children, make sure they can reach the light at night when they have to go to the toilet. A window in a bathroom is a great asset as natural light is always better during daytime than artificial. Bathroom design wall finishes – Once you’ve got an idea about what design you like and have chosen your bathroom suite, walls are the next thing to think about. Walls in bathrooms have a few conditions to apply to. They have to be resistant to water, damp conditions, dirt and they have to be easy to clean. Tiles are still considered the best material to use. Tiles come in all kinds of sizes, colours and finishes. Wallpaper can also be used in a bathroom design. When you buy wallpaper, make sure that it is suitable for the bathroom. Also use wallpaper paste suitable for your wallpaper and the bathroom. It will obviously need to present more resistance to moisture then in any other room in the house.

Constructed like this it can also provide a little shelf for your accessories. You can either leave it in its own wood colour or paint it in any colour you want.
