How to Future Proof Your Bathroom

Having that perfect bathroom is essential for your dream home. It puts the finishing touches on your interior design project. However, the last thing you want is to be constantly chopping and changing your bathroom. If you want one that’s built to last, you need to future proof your bathroom.

One of the best ways to achieve this is by using e unique, modern bathroom mirrors. At Mood Living, we provide a number of large bathroom mirrors which will not only make your bathroom look great but add a layer of utility. 

What Makes a Great Bathroom?

It’s one of the most important rooms in the home, so what are the components of a great modern bathroom? Like kitchen design, bathroom design has changed dramatically in recent decades. Bathrooms, especially master bathrooms, have become far more than the simple, utilitarian room they once were. They have evolved from the simple, white tiled, sanitized spaces into personal retreats and at-home spas. 

Your bathroom needs to be designed with space in mind, finding a balance between modern minimalist and practicality is key. There needs to be enough space to move freely around the bathroom, whilst offering practical features to place towels and store your bathroom essentials. 

Natural light and privacy are another two elements that need consideration and planning. A good bathroom design, like any room, benefits from natural light. You may find that the sunlight coming through your window is too bright, or perhaps you simply need a bit of extra privacy? If so, a beautiful blind or window covering will help keep brightness at acceptable levels, whilst providing a whole new dimension to your bathroom design. You can choose from a wide range of beautiful bathroom blinds or perhaps even go for shutters.

The Importance of Bathroom Mirrors

Why should you care about bathroom mirrors over other aspects of your bathroom though? Beautifully decorated bathroom are recognised for a variety of different features and details. We pay close attention to obvious features such as the sink, bathtub and shower. The bathroom mirror is oftentimes an afterthought but the humble mirror is an important element of every bathroom.

Mirrors, of course, also reflect light, so strategically placed mirror can make a world of difference. There are plenty of options, ranging from functional storage cabinets to Hollywood LED illuminated mirrors. Placed on the wall adjacent to the window, it will reflect the sunlight streaming in and light up your bathroom effectively. For extra-dramatic results, install two mirrors on adjoining walls, perpendicular to each other. This brightens up the room drastically while also giving the illusion of extra space. Bathroom mirrors are practical whilst creating a clean and bright atmosphere, so be sure to give it some extra attention.

It ends up being a real focal point of the space. This is because it is in the centre of the majority of activities that take place in the bathroom, and it is the starting point from which everything moves. It is therefore important to pay attention when choosing mirrors because they really help dictate the overall feel of the bathroom.

As mentioned before, storage and lighting are both important for a modern bathroom. Our illuminated bathroom cabinets with mirrors help achieve both of these things. There are LED illuminated bathroom mirror cabinets, featuring gorgeous contemporary design plus convenience and function.

Future Proofing takes two aspects, by trying to keep it accessible as well as make sure it is physically resistant to the elements.

Future Proofing for Age

The number of people in the UK who live to be over 85 years old is expected to double from 1.4 million to 3.5 million within the next 25 years. Most people want to stay in their own homes for a long time but few are adapted well enough for people’s changing needs as they get older. Living in suitable housing can improve your health and well-being and help people to feel in control of their lives.
