HOVER OVER IMAGE TO PAUSE
a room for personal hygiene activities, generally containing a toilet, a sink and either a bathtub, a shower, or both
So then, what is a bathroom? Just as a kitchen is essential in a home, so the bathroom serves a very specific purpose, and it is simply mind boggling that often the bathroom is the last room in the home that is considered when it comes to creating a welcoming space. Even though you are unlikely to show off your bathroom to visitors, your bathroom is probably the one room that they will ask directions to during their visit to your home – let’s face it everyone needs the loo at some point. But, the bathroom is so much more than just the room we run to when nature calls.
For most of us it is our first port of call in the morning, it is where we take the first look at ourselves before we wash the sleep from ours eyes and get ready to face the day; it a place to retreat to and unwind from the stresses of a busy day, with a relaxing bath or shower and perhaps even a favourite book; it is where we go to ready ourselves before a big event; it is the place that busy moms escape to have just a few minutes alone; and it is a safe place to shed a tear when you simply have to hold it together. Perhaps a better description for bathroom would be “a self-care sanctuary.”
“Thanks Jean. It is great to deal with you, such a hassle free experience.”

living space /ˈlɪvɪŋ speɪs/ [noun]
the place in which a person lives, in particular the part of a house or flat excluding the kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom.
Your home is your sanctuary and with the fast-paced lives that we lead in the modern world our living spaces should be a place to relax and unwind from the chaos of the outside world, but all too often our homes become cluttered and before we know it instead of our homes feeling like a refuge, we seek to escape our living spaces in search of serenity. The biggest problem with many living spaces is that often there is insufficient storage space and as a result clutter soon takes over. It is strange then that as home owners we often overlook the need for built-in furniture in our living spaces, opting instead for free-standing furniture over fixed cabinetry. Naturally when you are renting a space it is difficult to not have moveable items to move from place to place, but when you own the space there is no reason why you should not consider the option of built-in cabinets. Having sufficient storage will free up space and clear the clutter away so that your home can truly become the sanctuary you deserve. Built-in cabinetry in a living space also creates an opportunity for you to create a feature that expresses your style, and adds value to your home especially when you own a studio style apartment where the bedroom becomes part of the living space.
