Gone are the days of messy bathrooms glass door fittings
Gone are the days of messy bathrooms glass door fittings. Today, it's all about simple, peaceful spaces-retreat from the increasingly intrusive outer world.
No, modern luxury glass door fittings is about beautiful surfaces and a sense of purity-lovely stone or porcelain, sculptural bathtubs or smooth sink basins and faucets can produce a perfect flow of water.
Function is very important. Ergonomic fixtures and accessories as well as hidden storage space are essential. The same is true for good lighting, especially when the dark, moody bathroom trend shows no signs of abating.
The four bathrooms glass door fittings we selected for 2021 (listed in no particular order) are very different, but they are all designed to complement the appearance of the home.
The first on the list is a very modern bathroom in New New New Residence-a futuristic building located behind the historic facade of Dunedin city centre with a brewery and holiday apartments. It was designed by Mike Stevenson of Stevenson Design.When the project won the 2021 ADNZ Resene Commercial/Industrial Architecture Design Award, this high-tech bathroom caught our attention.
The bathroom has a unique geometric shape that complements the cubic form of the building-it is characterized by the composite aluminum material divided into random patterns. The judges described the project as "interesting design with a complex and interesting layout".
They also praised the accidental use of fluorescent lights and colors, which gave the interior an ethereal quality. Other features include the sculptural form of accessories, and large windows with integrated glass doors between the bedroom and bathroom, which introduce natural light into the room during the day.
The house in East Beach was designed by Matt Blu Architects and built by Evolution Builders. We like the simple, organic minimalist style of the family bathroom, equipped with a Claybrook Vela restructured stone bathtub, which complements the Terra Vein travertine tiles (Arte Domus) on the walls and floors.
Matt Brew said that he first walked into Plumbline looking for a white bathtub, saw this stone bathtub, and knew it must be that one. He combined it with the bronze Cox faucet, which in turn matched the bronze anodized joinery on the house.
The dresser cabinet is oak, with a custom color that complements the cedar tones on the outside of the house: "This is a very beach color that adds a little casual and earthy feel while maintaining limited materials and palettes."
The new silver travertine is designated for the wash basin, and the surface extends over the wash basin, creating a landing area for bathroom necessities. Similar materials are used in the en suite bathroom.
The bathroom is a spacious, dark, moody suite with double entrances, double wash basins and double toilets. A large double shower in the center of the room separates the two sides.
The judges described it as "a remarkable and charming bathroom exuding luxury, drama and beauty."
"The attention to detail is extraordinary, from lighting and stone shadows, to gorgeous vanity and symmetry of space. It allows users to have a completely independent personal experience while also sharing common ground. A refined, elegant and emotional space ."
The dressing table is made of Silver Shadow marble, and the top is a hand-blown glass bowl. The faucet is old iron glass door fittings.
Our final choice this year also has a strong sense of symmetry, that is, the large ensuite bathroom was not designed by experts, but by brothers Dylan and Keegan Crawford for The Block NZ. They spent more than $33,000 on the room, which is cheap for the size of the room.
This pair opposed the popular view that the family bathroom should be the largest in the townhouse, but chose to create a large private ensuite lounge area for the new owner.
The bathroom glass door fittings was praised by the judges, who were impeccable with the design, even though they had different opinions on the light gray wall tiles. They particularly liked the double shower in the wet area, the vertical subway tiles and the lighting.
This is a DIY design with a limited budget, proving that you can still create an attractive retreat without breaking the bank. It may have helped the lads' townhouse to get $2.745 million on auction day.
