How to Create the Best Bathroom

Two ways to highlight the best features of a kitchen that you are remodelling

If you're remodelling a kitchen with one or more features that you love and you want the changes you make during the remodelling process to help to highlight these features, the two tips described below could help you to accomplish this goal.

Arrange some tiles near the feature in a way that directs attention to it

It is important to ensure that any tiles that are laid by the remodelling contractor in the area around a feature that you are hoping to highlight are arranged in a way that emphasises the presence of that feature. For example, if your kitchen has a beautiful sash window that you want to accentuate, you should ensure that any backsplash tiles that are placed underneath that window are arranged in a way that helps to put that window in the spotlight.

One way to do this is to buy a number of tiles from a specific colour group (such as warm-toned greys, for example) that range from very dark to very light, and then have the contractor position them with the darkest tiles at the bottom of the backsplash and the lightest ones at the top (i.e. have them create an ombré effect with these materials). This configuration of tiles will draw the eye up to the window.

When picking tiles for this task, make sure that you choose ones that are plain (as any fussy patterns on these materials will direct attention away from the feature that you're trying to highlight) and that come from a tile collection that features a good selection of light, mid-tone and dark coloured tiles, that are all from the same colour group. Some tile collections from brands like Southern Cross Tiles could meet these criteria; these plain tiles are available in a variety of shades, that range from light to dark, and which have similar undertones.

Position the feature in the centre of other smaller, matching objects

Another way to accentuate a part of your kitchen that you like is to position smaller, matching items around it. These items will serve as a type of frame that will make the feature that is between them more eye-catching.

For example, if your kitchen has a wonderful butler's sink with antique tap faucets, and you want to draw as much attention as possible to this sink, then you could buy two vintage pot-hanging racks and have the contractor hang them up on the wall space on each side of the sink. As the larger item that is positioned in the middle of these two identical smaller objects, the sink will stand out.

About Me

How to Create the Best Bathroom

The bathroom is perhaps one of the most important rooms in your home. You can apply your make up and prepare for the day or take a relaxing bath at the end of it. However, if your bathroom is not in a good condition, it can make it difficult or unpleasant to use. The bathroom in my home was getting a little run down so I decided to call in a professional contractor so they could carry out some remodelling work and create the best bathroom for me. The guys did a great job so I decided to start a blog.
