3. Nature of the space
Most commonly used in bigger spaces, bathrooms featuring high ceilings, transparent screens or flooring creates a sense of excitement and an intriguing space to explore. You can find this in non-symmetrical bathrooms with corners and turns and by also using patterned or opaque shower screens to hide a focal object.
What elements of the Biophilic Design will you use in your bathroom?
Experiment with different shapes in your tile choice, create some interest in hidden features by looking at a range of shower screens, most importantly increase the levels of light. If you lack natural light from windows, why not add a mirror light or a pair to compliment a vanity mirror.
