The Importance of Bathroom Lighting
Posted on Thursday, June 26, 2014

Bathroom lighting serves two purposes: it assists in daily grooming and beautification, and it increases the safety of an area. Poorly lit bathrooms can pose quite a safety risk. However, slippery surfaces, moisture and water, and electrical sources and appliances don’t have to pose a risk – proper lighting increases visibility and reduces safety concerns, all while making daily routines easier and more pleasant.

Types of Bathroom Lighting
There are three primary types of bathroom lighting which can be used alone or in combination for perfect brightening:

 ·         Ceiling – these lights are typically placed in the center of a room, but larger bathrooms may require ceiling lighting placed throughout

·         Wall-mounted – often placed on the side of mirrors to increase vanity lighting, sconces can be placed on nearly any wall in your bathroom to improve both aesthetics and visibility

·         Bath and vanity – lighting included with medicine cabinets, sinks, and bathroom vanities are among the most popular form of bathroom illumination. This type of lighting enhances ease of grooming and brightens the sink area where electrical appliances and water are often in close proximity – ultimately helping increase safety

There are a number of bathroom designs and myriad needs specific bathrooms serve DécorPlanet offers an impressive selection of bathroom lighting to help enhance both the aesthetics and safety of any sized area, helping ensure your space meets all of your family’s needs.

Should I Choose a Single or Double Vanity?
Posted on Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Vanities serve a multitude of purposes and can improve both the style and features of your bathroom. To ensure you maximize both aesthetics and function, choosing a vanity ideally sized for your space is important. So too is choosing a vanity that meets your family’s needs and stylistic preferences.

Single vanities are capable of fitting into smaller spaces. These smaller vanities also work well with other fixtures such as linen cabinets and free-standing tubs in medium and larger sized bathrooms. Single vanities may be faster to clean and are perfect for bathrooms that are only used by one person at a time, but their size limits their convenience in areas used by multiple family members at once.

Double vanities are perfect for master bathrooms and larger kids’ bathrooms in homes with more than one child. Additional counter space, larger storage areas, and a second sink can enhance comfort and convenience, and offer the full features larger families deserve. However, these larger pieces of furniture can make small spaces look crowded and limit selection for other bathroom fixtures when they are not ideally sized for a room.

In the end, the choice between a single or double bathroom vanity is yours alone, but many considerations can influence that decision. If you have questions about which option is best for your home, please visit one of our New York City showrooms.

Considering a Topless Vanity?
Posted on Thursday, June 19, 2014

A majority of bathroom vanities come with a countertop and sink. However, the specific choices a manufacturer has made for a unit do not always meet the aesthetic or functional preferences of the consumer, leading more and more people to consider cabinet-only options.

When you choose a vanity without a countertop, you are given full control over its customization. Selecting a topless vanity allows you to also select the color and materials used for its countertop along with the exact type of sink most complementary to your space. Most bathroom vanities are standard sizes, giving consumers innumerable choices when it comes to finding just the right top.

Why Consider A Cabinet-Only Option?

Bathrooms are not one-size-fits-all, meaning even with a wide selection of options, there is not always a prefabricated vanity ideal for every space. What’s more, choosing a vanity that you can customize gives you more opportunity to change designs in the future. Prefabricated models often have tops permanently affixed. Topless options allow you to choose how counters are secured, giving you a better idea of how to remove them if you desire a simple upgrade.

Just as there is no one-size-fits-all bathroom, there is no single right solution for the updating of every space. At DécorPlanet we pride ourselves on offering the widest variety of bathroom vanities to help each of our customers choose the exact option needed to perfect their homes.

What Makes Modern Bathroom Vanities Modern?
Posted on Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Modern bathroom design is becoming increasingly popular. Contemporary themes offer a wonderful alternative to more traditional designs and also produce a youthfully sophisticated aesthetic. But what features distinguish modern bathroom vanities from other styles?

Clean Line, Simple Design

Contemporary vanities are distinguished by their clean lines and deceptively simple design. Modern vanities do not have the intricately carved details of antique or traditional design, opting instead for a sleeker, more streamlined look.

Clean and simple does not indicate basic. In fact, many contemporary bathroom vanities offer advanced features such as slow-opening drawers, under cabinet lighting, and high-tech faucets, allowing these pieces of functional bathroom art to offer years of both aesthetic and practical benefits.

At DécorPlanet, we have a wide selection of contemporary bathroom vanities, sinks, and faucets, giving you the choices you need to perfect your space. We encourage you to browse our online selection or visit one of our New York showrooms to learn more about modern bathroom design and find the ideal fit for your home.

Signs You Should Invest in a Whirlpool Tub
Posted on Thursday, June 12, 2014

If you have ever considered purchasing a whirlpool but felt the time simply wasn’t right, you may want to revisit your options. Not only can a whirlpool enhance the overall comfort of your bathroom, the impressive array of styles available at DécorPlanet can enhance its appearance as well. 

If you demand spa-like luxury and state-of-the-art design, investing in a whirlpool tub now may be the best decision you can make.

When to Invest in a Whirlpool Tub
While there is no time like the present to invest in a whirlpool tub, there may be times when it’s slightly more convenient. For example, consider adding a whirlpool tub if you are redecorating or remodeling a bathroom. Choosing your tub prior to making designs will allow you to plan around the shape and size of your whirlpool, helping ensure seamless integration into your space.

Similarly, when designing a bathroom as part of a complete build-out, the right whirlpool tub can add just the right touch of elegance and decadence. No matter if your tub is a commanding centerpiece or a more subdued corner design, the comforts offered by your whirlpool can provide inimitable escape any time you require.

To choose your perfect whirlpool tub, please browse our impressive selection online or at one of our New York City showrooms. If you have questions about whirlpool tubs, please contact customer service online or by calling (800) 504-9974 today.

Even in the sellers-market we are currently enjoying, if your bathroom is out of date, you risk diminishing the value of your home. While most stagers and real estate agents agree the kitchen is the most important room to update when trying to sell, the bathroom is not far behind. And if you haven’t taken time to improve the functional qualities and aesthetic appeal of your bathroom, you may find yourself taking less for your home than you would have liked.

Easy Bathroom Updates

Fortunately, updating the bathroom does not need to be complex. Replacing outdated fixtures such as toilets and faucets is certainly a good idea, but that may take more time than you feel you have. However, when possible, replacing older units with new, more advanced fixtures can only help increase the appeal of your bathroom.

If you are unable to update fixtures, consider adding features including lighting and storage space. A well-lit bathroom with medicine and linen cabinets cannot help but produce a more inviting look. Be sure to not over-crowd a space however. Cramped bathrooms are just as unappealing as outdated. Selecting size appropriate upgrades can actually help a room appear larger while still feeling comfortable.

Remember, the bathroom is where every member of a household starts and ends their day. Making sure yours is clean, welcoming, and fully updated can increase the value of your home and help ensure a swifter sale.
