Home Living : March 27th 2012
MB HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, March 27, 2012 7 BATHING BEAUTIES WHY BIGGER IS BETTER CREATE A LUXURIOUS BATHROOM Space vital in creating an opulent, extravagant bathroom. THEY'RE the bathrooms you see in maga- zines -- large and luxurious. Often architecturally designed, they're in the houses of the rich and fabulous. What makes these bathrooms so covet- ed? Samantha Anderson, of Cass Brothers Fine Bathroomware, explains what mat- ters in making award-winning bathrooms. Space: Modern bathrooms are large, spacious areas, often as big as a bedroom. The ambience created by a spacious bathroom is opulent and extravagant. Light: Natural bathroom light through the use of floor to ceiling windows and skylights gives it a fresh, organic appeal. There are so many options to choose from, including glass louvre windows and glass bricks to tinted or frosted windows. Views: Who wouldn't want to be soaking away in their freestanding bath looking out over the ocean, lake or mountains? Bathroom views are rare and a real find in real estate. If you're building a new home, this is something to discuss with your architect and builder. Bathroom fittings: Beautiful sculp- tural bathroom fittings give your bath- room the wow factor. There are so many amazing options to choose from, it's like selecting a piece of art for your bathroom. MAKE-OVERS Outdoor dining areas are great. RENOVATION TRENDS HEALTH issues such as light, fresh air and noise control are some of the most import- ant features for Australian home buyers and renovators. Well-designed smaller and smarter sustainable homes are more popu- lar, says Archicentre, the building advisory service of the Australian Institute of Architects. Top renovation trends include: Multi-purpose rooms are popular and come in many combinations. Combined kitchen, dining and living areas are particu- larly popular with families. Low-maintenance living Paint-free architecture, earthy textures, very natural. Paved courtyards with an emphasis on drought-resistant plants. Polished timber flooring is the epitome of low-maintenance. Indoor/outdoor alfresco or open-air, ideally flowing from an open-plan kitchen, dining area with bi-fold or stackable doors into a paved area or decking. Garden design Multiple light wells and courtyards around the home, bringing light and views to living areas. y p y y ver 30 years experience in the building trade.
