SINGAPORE - When it comes to modern home design concepts, bathrooms are far from being just basic facilities.
A simple bathroom can be transformed into little spa haven in the comfort of your own home to de-stress after a long day.
"People are beginning to view the bathroom as a living space now.
Changing the bathroom décor to something you prefer instead of having it as a purely functional place will allow you to feel more at ease and more at peace with your personal space," says Ms Winnie Quek, Hansgrohe's regional marketing communications manager.
Go for light colours
Having the right décor and sufficient light will put you at ease the moment you step into your bathroom, says Mr Gary Sim, assistant director from Sim Siang Choon.
Taking centrestage in a well-designed bathroom is the toilet bowl and the washbasin followed by the showerhead and faucet.
Colour plays a more important part - the sanitaryware's colour should blend with the overall background.
Even if you have the most high-end bathroom ware, the overall look will be affected if the contrast is stark.
Using light colours on the décor helps create an enhanced soothing feel that is easy on the eyes, says Mr Sim.
For instance, the basin and toilet bowl should be from the same family of colours.
