Bathroom vanities with Style
With so many available gorgeous bathroom styles and ideas, it is hard to make a decision on which bathroom vanities and sink to select for your new or renovated bathroom. The team at Style Plus look at bringing style to the bathroom space.
Types of vanities & sinks for your renovation | new build
It’s not easy to pick out a sink for your bathroom bathroom renovation or new build when there is a good selection to choose from. There are a couple things to consider when selecting a bathroom sink:
• What is the design style that you want to achieve?
• Is your chosen bathroom design clean lines and modern, traditional or mid-century modern?
Think also about the space you have to work with. From wall hung sinks that attach directly to the wall and do not use any floor space to bathroom sinks that are mounted in a vanity or sit above a countertop, there are many options to choose from.
Stylish Bathroom Vanities
Bathroom vanities come in all shapes and sizes. You will want to make sure you have the right one for your design style. Keep in mind that the bathroom vanity is pretty much the centrepiece of the bathroom.
There are three main styles of bathroom vanities:
• Shelf Vanities
• Wall mounted vanities
• Cabinet style vanities
A shelf type vanity is a minimalist type vanity. This type of vanity can be designed in a variety of ways such as wall hung or as part of a free standing unit…
Fireplace Options For Your Renovation
Whether you prefer a gas or wood burning fire, you will find a wide range of opinions regarding the look and feel, cost, maintenance, convenience, and environmental responsibility for both fireplace options. The team at Style Plus take a quick look at wood burning and gas fires.
Modern woodburners are highly energy efficient, produce limited air pollution and use a form of renewable energy.
Burning wood is carbon-neutral because it is a renewable resource. However, burning wood cleanly is the key to making it enviro-friendly.
The large amount of radiant heat produced by woodburners suits many of our New Zealand houses. This is especially the case for the older, poorly insulated and draughty homes with high ceilings. A properly sized and installed woodburner can heat the whole home.
The advantage of a gas fire is that it provides instant heat and has the look of an open fire, without the danger of the open flame or the need for firewood. Additionally, gas is more energy efficient than electricity (emitting less greenhouse gas emissions than burning it to make electricity in power stations).
A gas fire provides both radiant and convection heating, with the radiant heat warming objects in a room and the convection heat circulating the warmed air…
Custom Home Builders NZ
When you choose to build your new home with Style Plus, you choose to partner with a team of dedicated custom home builders and professionals to create your new home.
Design & Build
All of our projects start by creating a comprehensive brief with our clients. When we design your new home, we consider how best to connect the spatial design with your lifestyle. For example we ensure that all your concerns, wants and wishes are noted so that the final design enables your new home and all its elements within to work together seamlessly.
If you decide to embark on building a new home, the following are a few pointers:
As you plan your new home, one of the first questions to consider is whether working with a custom design & build company such as Style Plus or a higher volume home builder is the best choice for you.
A volume home building company simultaneously builds multiple homes based on a collection of home plans – cookie cutter approach. Buyers personalise their home by selecting product categories such as appliances, cabinets, countertops and flooring from a menu of options offered by the builder.
A custom design & build company such as Style Plus typically creates a one of a kind, unique home that offers an even greater range of design choices. Clients who wish to have a home purpose built for their needs and lifestyles often decide to work with a design & build company.
The difference in approach between custom design & build and volume home builders will help determine what product and design choices you will make and also shape how you and your builder will work together.
