BATHROOM TILES/JUBIN BILIK AIR

Hiasan dalaman apartment dan kondomonium

 

 

 

Bilik air atau bilik mandi (bathroom), walaupun ruang paling kecil dalam apartment, tidak terlepas daripada penataan dan hiasan dalaman kerana bilik air adalah sebahagian daripada rumah juga. Dalam sebuah apartment, sekurang-kurangnya pun ada 2 bathrooms. Tidak seperti ruangan lain, 50%-80% ruangan ini adalah berjubin (ceramic tiles). Oleh itu, hiasan paling asas bagi bathroom kita ialah pemilihan dan penyusunan corak jubin (tiles) sama ada di bahagian lantai, ataupun dindingnya. Sesetengah apartment's bathroom siap dipasang jubin dinding dengan ketinggian 5 kaki, manakala ada juga sehingga 8 kaki tingginya. Bagi kondomonium masa kini, tiles mungkin dipasang meliputi 100% dinding bilik mandi. Jika apartment's bathrooms anda hanya separuh berjubin (biasanya 6 kaki dari lantai), maka bolehlah anda mencari idea untuk menghiasnya dengan corak atau warna jubin @ tiles yang sepadan.

Gambar atas menunjukkan beberapa contoh modern bathrooms design sebuah condominium. Tidak semestinya anda perlu bilik air yang besar seperti ini, yang penting ialah idea padanan warna yang digunakan. Lantai biasanya akan menggunakan jubin atau tiles yang gelap (dark color tiles) seperti warna hitam. Untuk padanan, tile dinding juga di beri sentuhan jubin hitam pada sebahagian dinding. Begitulah juga sekiranya anda menggunakan warna merah maroon, dark brown atau biru gelap untuk tiles di bahagian lantai, maka anda patut menggunakan warna yang sama pada sebahagian jubin dinding bilik air. Padanan-padanan ini boleh anda lihat dalam beberapa contoh gambar jubin bilik air di bawah.

 
     
 
     
 
 

Gabungan  dua warna brown tiles masih menjadi pilihan untuk hiasan jubin bilik mandi.

 
     
 

Sekiranya ceramic tiles berwarna cerah telah siap dipasang dan meliputi ketinggian 6 atau 8 kaki dinding bathroom anda, anda boleh memasang divider tiles yang bercorak kontra dan menambah tiles hingga ke paras bathroom's ceiling. Dalam kes ini, elak daripada menggunakan warna tiles yang gelap untuk menutupi bahagian atas dinding bilik mandi. Warna ceramic tiles yang lebih gelap (lebih baik jika sama warna dengan warna floor tiles) sebaiknya berada di bahagian bawah dinding.

How To Choose Bathroom Tiles

Choosing the right tiles for your bathroom needs some careful consideration. With so many varieties on the market, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the choice on offer. Choose from ceramic, slate, glass and metal tiles, plain or patterned, large and small, smooth or textured. The options are seemingly endless. So, to help you through the decision process, we’ve put together some practical tips, making finding the perfect tiles for you bathroom, a breeze.

Ceramic or natural stone tiles?
Ceramic tiles are the most popular by a long way. They’re durable, their glazed surface makes them highly resistant to harbouring germs, they’re usually very easy to keep clean, and come in styles to suit every taste. If you opt for ceramics, the most important thing to be aware of is that they do tend to vary from lot to lot, so make sure all the boxes you buy are stamped with the same lot number. But if you’d rather try something different...

Glazed terracotta tiles are hugely popular right now with the trend for Mediterranean style bathrooms. Good quality terracotta is not only gorgeously rustic, it’ll last virtually forever, but can be hard to find. So the cheapest option might not be the best.

Natural stone tiles like granite, slate, marble and even terrazzo (composed of marble chips imbedded in concrete and polished smooth) are beautiful, distinctive, and luxurious. They’ll cost you though. And these materials tend to be porous, so you may need to apply a seal to stop the tiles absorbing water. Make sure you discuss this with the supplier before you buy.
Glass, metal, and porcelain tiles look brilliant if installed properly – but that’s easier said than done. Unless you’re really a dab hand at DIY you might want to leave the fitting of these to the experts.

Consider colourful or patterned bathroom tiles
It goes without saying that white is by far the most popular colour choice for bathroom tiles. White tiles are fresh-looking, classic, and reflect light to give the illusion of a more spacious, lighter room. If you’re worried about the room looking too stark add dark or patterned towels and other accessories to introduce splashes of colour while retaining the clean minimalist look.
Colourful or patterned tiles can be used to add detail here and there, or make a bold statement when used to cover the entire wall. They tend to look best contrasted with simpler bathroom fixtures.

Smaller bathrooms look better with smaller tiles
Generally, the more compact the bathroom the smaller the tiles should be, especially if there’s not much space between your sink, toilet, and tub. Smaller tiles will also require less cutting to fit around objects and make for a more flowing feel. If you’re lucky enough to have a big bathroom, large tiles give a sleek look with less exposed grouting in between. Borders or panels of smaller tiles can look fantastic in complimentary or contrasting colours.

With Moroccan style currently on trend, mosaic tiles are proving to be extremely popular. With many different styles, sizes and colours available, they are a great way to add a hint of the colourful and eclectic North African style to your bathroom.

8 Steps to Design Your Bedroom Like a First-Class Hotel Room

1. Space:

In a hotel room, we take a small space and create a flexible haven for the guest for multiple activities. Do the same with your bedroom…You can create areas for sleeping (the bed), reading (seats), F&B (a coffee niche or mini refrigerator), working (desk) and grooming (the bath and closet). You can design this environment with any size room. First step is to decide which activities you want to perform (aside from sleeping!) and plan space accordingly.

 

2. The Not-So-Obvious Keys to Comfort

Review the room’s acoustics, ventilation and system controls. If possible, add extra insulation between walls, install upgraded carpet pad, add fabric walls with padded upholstered wall panels or on the headboard. These steps help increase comfort. In addition, room should be ventilated correctly - common mistakes are air vents blowing over the bed. Place your bed away from air vents and make sure you have access to fresh air. Add concealed speakers at key areas for a sound system and if possible, a fireplace is always a nice feature on a cold snowy night along with a heated towel rack in your bathroom. Install a bedside three-way switching control that is located above the nightstand for easy access.

 

3. Light it up!

  • In first-class hotel rooms, the following techniques are often utilized:

  • Three-way switch at entry for bedside lamp

  • Closet light that turns on automatically when door is opened

  • Reading lights at bed that are individually controlled

  • Ample lighting in bathroom - lighted makeup mirror, wall sconces and overhead lighting at vanity, lighting in tub area and lighting under vanity for night light

  • Dimmer controls on everything!

4. Late Night Snacks

Incorporate a station for coffee, beverages and snacks. If you want to really get snazzy, add a mini bar or wine cooler, and a sink (can be located near bathroom entry). What better way to relax than not having to go the kitchen for a cool beverage!

 

5. Incorporate Flexibility

Think "multi-use." Incorporate a pivoting desk so you can watch television (or the sunset) while working on those expense reports. If there is room for additional seating, rather than a standard chair, use either a chaise lounge, built in seating or two upholstered chairs with leather ottomans. Ottoman can be used to rest tired feet, as a surface for a board game or as a dining surface. Also, add a mirror above the desk so you can use it as a make-up vanity if your better half has control of the bathroom!

 

6. Natural Light

Ensure drapery treatments stack past windows to maximize views. Include sun control such as Mecco Shades. Ensure that drapery panels overlap at least 4" at center draws so that a "blackout" environment can be maintained when you want to snooze. Plus, line the drapery panels with a top-notch liner! And as an over-the-top idea, motorize window treatments with open/close switches at entry and bedside

7. The Bed.

  • Step 1: Buy the best bed you can. This will be the best investment you have ever made for your peace of mind. Consider a pillow top.

  • Step 2: Do away with the bedspread. Use a dust skirt and making the bed becomes a breeze, believe me - making up beds is our forte!!!

  • Step 3: We purchase top quality bedding, including 300 thread count sheets and duvets. You should do the same as it is worth it.

  • Step 4: Add throw pillows for color and pizzazz and include a throw blanket at the end of bed to protect that duvet and provide a cozy cover-up while reading a book in your favorite chair!

8. Lastly: Make it Personal and Unique

Many hotel rooms feature regional art and local interest magazines so a guest feels a connection with the city they are visiting. For your own room, remember--Whether it is a favorite painting, family photographs, a book shelf with your favorite books, don't be afraid to include those special items in your decorating scheme so you feel connected and at peace.
