Bathroom Design :
Suites bring your bathroom to life
Gone are the days of the small, efficient bathing area. Today we
want to have at least one bathroom suite in our homes. There are
so many innovations in home improvement these days, especially when
it comes to our kitchens and baths.
We are quickly moving away from the one-bathroom home. We are also
not satisfied with the little powder room that used to be a great
attraction for people shopping for homes. The little powder room
has grown and the traditional bathing area is gradually turning
into a bathroom suite.
This gradual progression from the simple bathing room to the bathroom
suite is apparent to anyone who watches the Home and Garden Television
Network found in their local cable programming. More and more shows
are dedicating themselves to the bathing area of the home. In fact,
the Home and Garden Television Network has created shows dedicated
to this realm of the home.
I have come across so many interesting and appealing ideas for
my own home through watching these programs. With the right planning
and with a lot of patience, I hope to create a bathroom suite that
will serve as a sanctuary in our home.
One item that I really want is a claw-foot tub. I love the traditional
look and its timeless appeal but I also love that these tubs can
include cutting-edge features like a whirlpool jets built right
in. You can have the classic beauty of the claw-foot tub with the
modern amenities that make a bath a bathroom suite.
Of course, there are many other options for the bath tub. There
are free-standing tubs that set on a table. This is an attractive
look for a modern bathroom suite but the plumbing may be a little
difficult to install and it can be very expensive as well.
Another attractive tub found on the bath programs is a tub that
is built into the floor. The problem with this, in my estimation
is safety. I just picture a guest who is unfamiliar with the bathroom
suite falling into the subtle tub.
I do like the idea of sticking with tradition. Consider, though
that just a few decades ago people were using outhouses. In fact,
my great-great grandmother was disgusted by the idea of using indoor
bathroom facilities. She firmly believed that some activities
should be completed far away from where the family ate and slept.
We certainly have come a long way from the outhouse to the bathroom
suite in a relatively short amount of time.
