Property trends are often impacted by lifestyle trends. The motto: ‘Live-Work-Play’ has certainly influenced the urban real estate market. Less square footage in upmarket urban inner city apartments and townhouses does not mean design should be compromised. Luxury definitely comes in small packages. Modern bathtubs are revolutionising compact urban spaces with a minimalist and elegant solution.
A smaller compact bathroom has all the potential of having a big personality. A minimalist approach becomes the priority when designing your space. By removing unnecessary items and fussy detailing, modern bathtubs become the opportunity and investment pieces to create striking focal points, no matter the size of your bathroom. This means your own personal ‘spa’ experience is not limited by space.
The illusion of space
To maximise the floor space of a smaller property and still retain the advantages and ‘feel’ of a larger space, means getting clever with design tricks. Instead of visualising modern bathtubs restricted by floor space, consider the space opportunities from floor to ceiling. A modern bathtub in the form of a ‘soaker tub’ will still bring the magic into your compact contemporary space. DADO’s Julia freestanding bath from the modern bathtubs range is designed specifically with the urban apartment and townhouse in mind. The deeper profile of the Julia bath allows you to relax and have a deep, luxurious soak. DADO’s compact modern bathtubs range will seamlessly complement the contemporary minimalist look, giving the illusion of space.
The influence of trends
Globally, property developers and architects are designing and building smaller living spaces. By going upward, this has given rise to compact living, challenging bathroom designers to become creative and innovative when it comes to fusing luxury and style into contemporary smaller homes. This urban living trend is the perfect space for compact modern bathtubs to make their mark. Their artistic presence has added functionality and a beautiful aesthetic – simplifying your space and your bathing experience.
