We expect a lot from our bathrooms these days. Sure, we want them to be practical and beautiful but for full marks, they’ll need clever tech pieces and day-spa finishes to boot!
Of course, before you can start rounding up scented candles and remote-controlled mood lighting, you’ll need to understand what your bathroom designer is talking about. So, back by popular demand, on page 22, we present our bathroom glossary to help you make sense of the need-to-know lingo. But we can also help you with those beautiful modern finishing touches as we’ve rounded up more than a few ideas from page 36.
Looking for a bathroom you really can keep forever? You’ll want to make sure it’s ahead of its time. Head to page 26 for a look at the bathrooms of the future as well as loads of clever ideas to add to your reno right now.
As usual, there are plenty of gorgeous real-life rooms to flick through over a leisurely planning brunch or to take along to show your designer, and we’re especially proud of our products section, which features some true eye-catchers — steam showers and high-tech spa baths? Sign us up!
Whether you’re going all-out hotel-style luxury or just keen to buy a bath that fits your whole torso, I hope you find something to inspire in our 2016 Bathroom Yearbook.
