Most homes have more than one bathroom. Some may have half or three-quarter
baths (with a sink, toilet, and shower stall) as well. When you are approaching
bathroom design and decorating, first you have to determine the space available,
your needs, and the most efficient arrangement of plumbing fixtures and
supportive furnishings, storage and lighting for each hygiene area in your home.
Bathroom design has always been centered on the three basic fixtures - the tub,
toilet, and sink. Ample storage for towels, medicines, and grooming and cleaning
aids is essential. A place for soiled clothing is also desirable in the
bathroom. Master bathrooms commonly contain two sinks, a separate area for the
toilet, and a shower stall in addition to the tub. Tubs can be located almost
anyplace, including the center of the bathroom. They are available in all
shapes, designs, colors and sizes. Often tubs are placed beside large windows to
make advantage of the view.
Special attention should be paid to the bathroom
lighting fixtures. Bathroom require shadow-less lighting for shaving and
grooming, which can be supplied by light from overhead and from both sides of
the mirror, and by light reflected upward from light-colored marble or granite
countertop. Mirror lighting in the bathroom is usually sufficient to illuminate
an average-sized powder room; however, general lighting in the bathroom is
necessary with the addition of the tub or shower. Lighting in the shower needs
to be enclosed and certified for use in a wet environment.
There are a number of ways to take an ordinary bathroom and give it some flair
through packaging improvements. Suggesting that the bathroom is a luxurious retreat.
Luxury bathroom will appeal to many people, and
- if you ever plan on selling your home - to potential buyers. By installing
fixtures like saunas or Jacuzzi you will certainly improve your bathroom, but it
can be a quite expansive additions. You can also consider a less-expensive way
to create an impressive decor - adding molding, color and accessories.
Addition of moldings in the bathroom can create a powerful transformation.
Stylish molding adds a polished look to any interior space, and specially
bathrooms. Crown molding and
baseboard are the most common
types of molding that are
used in the bathroom. If you bathroom has a sloped ceiling you might it doesn't
mean that you cant embellish it with molding. For sloped ceiling you should
consider using a frieze molding.
This type of molding is designed to be fixed only on the wall surface, and allows
you an opportunity to add architectural details to the rooms with unusual
ceilings angles. There are a wide selection of molding styles available on
LuxuryWorld.in website that will bring style of your bathroom to the next
level. From contemporary
crown molding and
Art Deco molding to traditional
Dentil molding and elegant
cove molding there are
moldings for any
bathroom style and scale. While
selecting molding for your
bathroom you should focus on three main criteria - material that molding is
made of, size and proportion of molding profile, and molding style.
Before selecting any molding styles you should be certain that moldings you are looking
at are made from water-resilient material.
Choosing right molding material for your bathroom is
crucial. Because of high humidity level in the
bathroom moldings that are made from any kind of wood or wooden composite
material are not appropriate. Wooden molding will react on moister and
temperature changes, as a result they can crack, warp or even rote. The perfect
molding for installation in the bathroom is molding that is made from the
high-density furniture-grade polyurethane or high-definition polymer system (HDPS).
These types of molding material are perfect for bathrooms, basement, screened
porches and any other interior spaces with high levels of moister or frequent

buying is CFC and HCFC free. CFCs (Chlorofluorocarbons) and HCFC (Formaldehyde) are

green molding, but is
it really worth it? As a good citizens of planet Earth it is our responsibility
to take care of the environment, and provide a healthy home to our children by
implementing principles of green
In order to create a sophisticated and relaxing bathroom you should choose a
molding that are proportioned to the space. If you hove a large bathroom with
high ceilings you can add a nice crown molding with rich profile, and (if it is
appropriate for your bathroom's style) with vivid ornamental design. If your
bathroom has a ceiling that is on the lower side you should carefully evaluate
your options. The most common mistake people do when choosing the molding for a
room with low ceilings - they go with thin, tiny profile. The rule - "low
ceiling - small crown molding" is a common misconception.
Instead of creating illusion of a higher ceiling, thin crown molding will only
accentuate the low ceiling height. In order to create an illusion of a higher ceiling you should
look at the crown molding that comes down on the wall less than projects on the
ceiling. Here is some examples: Centro cove molding - comes down on the wall only 3-1/8",
but projects on the ceiling - 4-1/2", giving you an nice 5-1/2" crown molding
face that creates a lovely cove look and makes ceiling appear higher.

architectural details to the bathroom.
