Bathroom Blinds

  • Boosting Bathroom Bliss

    Posted on 24th July 2011 by Chris.

    The bathroom is quite obviously of great importance, and constant use, in our everyday lives. Bathroom configurations are primary influenced by functionality, privacy and convenience. Remote control blinds will make an excellent addition to any bathroom, bringing convenient one-touch operation that gives extra privacy with minimal effort. Not only that, Controliss blinds would not look out of place next to many of the ideas that designers have made available or are proposing for our bathrooms. Motivated by the aspiration of turning a normal bathing session into a more enhanced experience, there are diverse technologically endowed shower or bath options currently on the market. One of which is Kohler's VibrAcoustic Bathtub which aims to invigorate and sooth, using the science of sound therapy, by synchronising preset music and sound vibrations with choreographed chromatherapy. One more idea for an improved bathing experience is Linea Aqua’s Apollo steam shower which is suitable for showering, can act as a steam sauna and can even give a hydro-massage. Including a built-in seat with back rest, the shower temperature can be controlled using a computerised LCD keypad or by remote control, while the mood lighting adds more relaxation. With clean water becoming an increasingly valued commodity, future bathroom technology shows consideration of practical ways to reuse waste water, since the transportation and treatment of our 'tap water' requires large amount energy and therefore has a serious impact on the environment. Designer Jang wooseok has a concept for a bathroom system that drains the water from the sink into a tank that will supply water for flushing the toilet. The first half of the water used to flush the toilet will be taken from the sink water tank, while clean water is dispensed from the sink tap and for the second half of a flush. There are many other bathroom appliances in development, if not already currently available, designed for the betterment of your bathing experiences while also helping to protect the environment. Just keep in mind that next time your bathroom is due for a refit, you could shape it into one that you can joyfully unwind in and still be using your water responsibly.

  • Bathroom Blinds Light The Way

    Posted on 4th February 2011 by yasmin.

    The bathroom is often one of the smallest rooms in a house and your accessories need to accentuate what room you have and not overcrowd it. Saying this, the bathroom is not just seen as a functional space anymore but it is also seen as a place of rest and relaxation. Taking these points into consideration, here I provide my top tips on how to best accessories your bathroom. De clutter - Perhaps it’s best to start with all that clutter that so many of us leave lying around our bathrooms; the products, the bottles, the mess! The best thing to do here is to start by decanting your bathroom, put all of your bath and hair care products into simple glass jars and bottles. This will ensure that your bathroom is less cluttered as well as creating the illusion of effortless coordinated glamour. If this approach isn’t for you then why not invest in some smart storage boxes to put all of your products in. Creating a neat, simple and mess free bathroom. Towels - Uniformed coordinating towels really do create an elegant yet uniformed look. Not only do they bring simplicity and symmetry to your bathroom, but they can also act as accessories which can be used to dress your bathroom. Window dressing - If you have a small bathroom then one of the best focal points to concentrate on is the window. Try to utilise lighter coloured fabric shades in your bathroom blinds as this will allow more light in through the window. But this doesn’t have to mean that your blinds are featureless, to add that extra something why not opt for a textured fabric blind such as our Viveza Pearl roller blind or our Textura Mist roller blind. These beautifully textured fabrics offer good levels of privacy but will allow welcoming sunlight to filter into the room. Roller blinds have always been one of the most popular window coverings for a bathroom and the safe 12V automation of the Controliss Roller allows complete control with the touch of a button.

  • Bathing Beauties!

    Posted on 3rd January 2011 by yasmin.

    I went into a hotel the other day, and I have to recall to you the bathroom. It was just beautiful, all cream, with accessories in the shades of cream, white and beige. It was truly stunning! So, with a bee in my bonnet, I have researched for you, how to perfect this bathing wonderland, watch and learn! The furniture - The bath, sink and toilet itself were all porcelain white; however, the added furniture of a sanded and painted wooden bath stand just added that personal touch of cottage cosiness mixed with sheer brilliance. This look is not hard to find, or create for that matter. All you need is an old piece of furniture, some sand paper and some cream paint, job done. The walls - The walls were all an off shade of white with the acceptance of one beige centerpiece wall from where a beautiful vintage style mirror was hanging. It always adds a touch of differentiation to have one wall a separate colour to the remaining three walls, make this your centrepiece wall from where to hang pictures or a mirror. The floor - In pure vintage style the flooring was wood, however, it again as the bath stand had been sanded down and painted in a beautifully subtle cream shade. The window - The windows were dressed in a beige Roller blinds, of a similar colour to the centrepiece wall. This look can be created with our very own Viveza Riviera Roller blind, or alternatively you could stick to cottage cosiness with our textured Precioso Whisper Roller blind. The accessories - Obviously, there were little accessories in a hotel bathroom. However, in a home you could accessories your beautiful new bathroom with all manner of accessories. From little trinket boxes, to candle holders, to little vintage perfume bottles, the choice really is yours. So with a little effort my dream bathroom can become your dream bathroom!
