In the absence of natural light, sconces and candlelight can create a warm feel. A gorgeous trumeau mirror works with the room's antique lighting for ultimate elegance. If a Venetian mirror is too small to make a room feel as big as a full‐length mirror can, get the same effect by layering it over a sheet of plain mirror. More mirrors mean more glamour. The vanity, Venetian mirror and shimmering tiles in this bathroom complement one another for a truly statement‐making look.
Want to let in more light? Try adhesive window films for more sun without sacrificing privacy. Replace the standard ceiling fixture with a classic drum pendant light on a dimmer switch. Add a piece of real furniture. An armchair (if you have the room) or a small gleaming wood or marble table is a good choice for the classic bath. Amp up the exotic touches and pay attention to the sensory experience to create a spalike ambience in your own bathroom. Put your overhead light on a dimmer. Everything looks better in soft light. Choose a few beautiful hand‐painted tiles and prop them up on your sink backsplash or hang them on the wall as art. Splurge on nice towels. I suggest supersoft and luxuriously big bath sheets, as well as fringed and knotted hammam‐style towels to hang by the sink.
Prepare to combat chills. There's no getting around it – open showers can be drafty, especially in the winter months. Installing a heat lamp and radiant heat bathroom flooring can offset the shivers. Mount a heated towel rack nearby, and you'll be extra toasty as you dry off. Choose an appropriate showerhead. Unless you have a very large buffer zone, a standard showerhead that angles outward can end up soaking your space. Opt for a rain‐style model, which casts water straight down, or a handheld type that allows you to control the position and flow. If you do use a more conventional model, mount it so that the spray hits an opposite wall rather than the shower opening.
