The furnishing touch
Don’t forget cabinetry, vanities and free-standing furniture, such as chairs and stools, can add warmth and comfort when creating the perfect sanctuary.
‘The integration of furniture into the bathroom is a true indication of how the bathroom space is transitioning from a utilitarian place to one where we can indulge in self-care,’ says Luke Di Michiel, Caroma’s industrial designer.
‘Storage in particular is one of our greatest needs, given that men may have the same amount of toiletries as women, so bathroom furniture can turn this necessity into a beautiful, and much needed, inclusion.’
With the modern bathrooms no longer hidden away, but rather segueing from other rooms, in particular bedrooms, bathroom furnishings help to extend the colour palette, form and flow from the accompanying spaces.
Luke adds that for many Australians, the bathroom has become a personal oasis away from the rest of the world. ‘Today’s bathrooms are a place of self-expression where you can put your own touch on your home and create a luxurious space you can enjoy.’
