Home Living : October 26th 2010
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, October 26, 2010 7 ............................................ HOMELIVING Wellness zone info » ADVERTISING FEATURE For anyone looking to transform their outdated bathroom into the luxury spa/ home retreat it could be, read on. Take note -- basins now go from square to organic. A lot of the trends coming out of Europe are about making the bathroom more of a living space than a washing space, Raymor Bathroom Products national product manager Peta Fray said. ''The very square look of the past four or five years has been replaced by more organic shapes with flowing lines and asymmetry. This applies to basins, taps and baths,'' she said. ''Bathrooms will be split into two zones: the practical area, comprising toilet and wash basin; and the wellness zone, which includes the bath and shower. ''The theory behind this is that, while there is a very functional aspect to washing and bathing, there is also a relaxing and luxurious aspect.'' No item within the bathroom is more a testament to the shift from square to organic shapes than the hand basin. Larger, spacious bathrooms are likely to favour a statement piece in the form of a custom-designed vanity with one or two freestanding vessel basins. For smaller bathrooms that limit the size of the vanity to a depth of, say, 350mm, there are the semi-recessed models such as the beautifully-dished, semi- circular shape of the Coral (medium) and the curved sides of the softly recti- linear basin. These designs sit into the vanity with their front edges protruding from the benchtop, making a much smaller intrusion on space without compromising on the washing area. When bathroom space is really tight and benchtop space is limited, an undermount sink ensures the maximum amount of vanity surface is unimpeded by the basin. And for small powder rooms, with no room for a vanity, there are wall-mounted and pedestal designs. Designs and tips: tradelink.com.au Time for timber » ADVERTISING FEATURE Those looking to start a home-improving project this season should embrace timber, instead of a paintbrush. Quick fixes aren't limited to a coat of new paint. Timber provides a striking, affordable solution, lending itself to an array of applications. From edging to vertical wall panelling, timber introduces warmth, colour and texture to re-invigorate the home. Hardwood timber decking can feature indoors as well as out, providing a fresh aesthetic. Use it to create a beautiful, rich- coloured tabletop and seating or as a decorative screen to divide the room. Outdoors, garden beds, entertaining areas and water features can all be framed with decking timber for a fast transformation. Structural hardwood timber can also be used to build a stylish pergola. Add to this by designing a timber day bed or garden bench to be placed inside. Additionally, using timber has environmental benefits as it is a natural and fully renewable resource.
