Effective bathroom design is the successful marriage of practicality and beauty. Fortunately, today, there are so many wonderful products on the market that this is not difficult to achieve at all. Every sybaritic device imaginable now exists to make sure that the time we spend in the bathroom on a daily basis is tranquil, enjoyable and healthy.

The Basics of Good Bathroom Design

From steam showers and Jacuzzis to electric underfloor heating and chromotherapy options, we can now treat our bodies to previously unimagined levels of luxury through good bathroom design and up-to-date installations. Wonderful though they are though, the fittings are only part of the story. The backdrop to your bath or shower can do as much as jets of water and steam to refresh and renew the flagging body and spirit.

Really good bathroom design begins with appropriate choice of tiles and other materials. These, together with carefully chosen color schemes will enable us to set the mood, whatever it is that we want it to be. Some of us love vibrant, exciting decor to get us up and moving in the morning. Others prefer the tranquil, harmonious approach, feeling that the bathroom should be a sanctuary from our busy lives.

It's a Personal Choice

Of course the atmosphere and equipment you choose for your bathroom is all purely personal, and should be agreed upon first between whichever members of the family are going to use the bathroom. Lifestyle will, to a great extent, dictate what type of bathroom you should have. For example, if you never have time to enjoy a leisurely soak, there's not much point in forking out to include a Jacuzzi in your bathroom design.

A steam shower will be a much more practical choice, and one that you can enjoy every day. If you live in a cold area, making arrangements to ensure your comfort will necessarily include some kind of heating system, and there's nothing quite like the comfort of underfloor heating. Likewise, if you are in a hot climate, making sure that the steam won't render you incapacitated from the heat is a priority.

The Unusual in Bathroom Design

Don't forget that now you can make use of some pretty amazing innovations in bathroom design to improve your health while you're performing the necessary daily grooming. It's not news to most of us that color can have a profound impact on the way you feel, but did you know that color therapy can make small adjustments in your health and mood with the vibrations given off by each individual color? You can now get showers, baths and even basins that incorporate chromotherapy features.

Taking a shower or a bath will never be the renewing experience it should be if the ambience isn't just right, and good bathroom design should take everything into account. Do you love the elegance and coolness of marble? Or do you prefer to be cosseted by carpets and rugs, and opulent soft furnishings? Think carefully about your choices before you commit yourself because all the elements of your bathroom design should fit together perfectly for the right effect.

The good news is that today, there's not much that's impossible as far as bathroom design is concerned. Whether you fancy a bathroom that gives the impression of an underwater cave, a Greek temple, or even a Scottish loch, it's all possible thanks to clever decorating techniques and first class fittings. All you need is the right bathroom design resources.

我個人都係鍾意google啲product 而且google真係快好多(雖然唔知同我唔係在香港search有無關係) 我好早之前一向都用yahoo啲product的 而出左gmail之後就開始轉到google 啦 但search野就依然用yahoo(因為我比較鍾意Y!個介面 同埋Y!的search results比較好.....這可能因為我不在香港 所以google scearh會set咗用local site scearh 以至d result唔係好啱我要求) 但大約今年左右吧 我已經接近放棄Y!了 因為實在慢到我不能忍受 我只不過要用佢個search function 但佢卻花了超長時間just to load its other functions 而且我發現google的results也ok 所以非必要我都不用Y!了 ....不過我識得一d人 他們大都因為習慣我關係依然係會keep噃用Y!或MSN的 ----------的確好多時人都不想承擔自己選擇的結果/代價 其實我覺得有時d人問你意見abt a issue 之後如果佢因為你的意見作出選擇而得不到理想的結果 通常佢都會賴你 好似自己完全不用負責 也不會想想又沒人迫佢選 而我呢 要作某些決定時 也不會特別去問別人的意見 就是問了也是just for my reference 但基本上很多時我自己也早已有了決定(其實好多人都是這樣啦 例如行街買衫呀 朋友拿起一件問我好唔好看 說真的如果佢不是有d鍾意的話佢就唔會拿來問啦 這不是已make decision 嗎 她只是想要support而已 anyway 件衫係佢而不是我著 佢著得開心咪得囉!) 但唔知點解好多時我的決定都沒什麼人支持的(eg.我F.5畢業之後決定去新加坡讀F.6-7 好多人(..呀..朋友 同學 even老師)都反對啦 因為佢哋覺得好地地又唔係考唔到 為什麼要risk urself to adapt a new environment while working for A-Levels...) 但我到現在都無咩後悔我作的決定呀 anyway我覺得與其花時間後悔 不如將所謂"錯的"決定變成"對的" 反正對錯也只是一線之差
