With tubs giving way to walk-in showers in terms of popularity, Don Harrier, principal at HKS, suggested taking advantage of the extra space to include a bigger vanity or to make the shower a statement piece with glass partitions and a great rain shower head.
Ventilation may not be top-of-mind when it comes to designing a hotel bathroom, but it should certainly be a point of consideration. Many hotels use a central stack design to ventilate their hotel rooms, said Gary Church-Smith, an indoor air-quality specialist with Panasonic Eco Solutions. They put a fan on the roof, and as result of that, the upper floors get better ventilation than the lower floors do because the lower floors are so far away from the fan. The farther a room is from that rooftop fan, he said, the less effective the fan is for ventilating that room.
Try something new if your standard 3-light vanity fixture does not create an ambiance you love. As well as functional, lighting should create a soothing environment that helps calm and relax during a shower. To achieve this effect, hire an electrician to install a medium-sized chandelier in the center of the bathroom or above the Jacuzzi, paired with a row of colored blown-glass light fixtures by an accent wall (the wall across from the vanity is a great location). These light fixtures would typically be installed above a kitchen breakfast counter or a bar table. But who says you can not use them in the bathroom? We are here to break the mold and customize your space. Concealed lighting is always great, especially if you have a decorative stepped ceiling.
