Integrating Pantone's 'greenery' into our bathroom makeover
Every space, especially a master bath, should fit the lifestyle needs of the client and their budget. We have had clients that have wanted very large TV's in their bathrooms, which was not our preference aesthetically, but a large TV met their needs and how they wanted to use the space. The best a designer can do is present the client with all workable options and let the client decide what they would like. The TVs embedded in mirrors and medicine cabinets are a great way to have a TV in a bathroom, but not everyone's budget can allow it.
I would hate it but if you like it, go for it. I think we have to decide what is right for us at times. This is one of those times.
Nope. It is actually a good idea as along as you have the budget and check the bathroom tvs specifications, features and of course, safety measures. Take note of the mounting options too.
I’m always taking my iPad into the bathroom when I am having a bath . Yes it’s relaxing but if I wanna be in there for an hour+ , I need to watch something . I’m too busy and don’t watch any tv . So this is the only way I get to wind down and watch something for once . I’ve put a bathtub in my ensuite and I plan on mounting my small 35’ over the bathtub so I can watch Netflix :)
I have always believed a TV should be in a designated part of a home just for watching TV. In my opinion, having one in a bathroom doesn't make much sense in a personal home. For a commercial bathroom in a restaurant (for example), I have seen mirrors with TV's hidden behind. That is an interesting design element. I prefer to just spend my time in the bathtub just bathing and then to bed. But, this is a very personal decision, and with each person it will be different.
Plenty of people now watch tv from their bed as sometimes parents for example might want to watch something perhaps inapropriate for a child and often kids now have a tv in their rooms too because they wouldn't dream of watching a show their parents might like except for sport.
Sometimes I'll have a bath and watch BHG which hubby detests and he can sit in the lounge or even go to bed and watch something he likes and then we also have a tv in the kitchen and watch the news whilst having tea so I think the idea that a tv is just a lounge room thing perhaps is a thing of the past now.
I can even have a shower and not miss a show or the news so I don't have to time my shower to suit a show I might like once a week lol
We're also not big time tv watchers as we're farmers but it cost very little to have the tv outlets put in every room when we built the house and on a cold winters night it's nice to go to bed and watch something under a cosy doona!!
I part own a few pubs , and we have TV's everywhere , yes including the toilets . Generally 3 or 4 around 21 inch , but in that environment we set them behind triple layered glass , particularly in the ladies haha . We get the builders to set them in a recess , and we paint or often tile them , then get the glass fitted . A good 'trick' is to put one at a 20 degree angle -- its a bit of a talking point .
We put 2 or 3 behind each bar too , and often use them to promote upcoming events , drinks specials and the like , as well as several 65 , 75 even 85 inch TVs around each venue .
And yes , I have a mirrored on in my guest bathroom at home -- in fact , at one stage I was going to do 2 or 3 of those little car DVD monitors ( about 9 inch wide ) behind glass in one shower -- cute , but also 12 volt , so harder to shock me haha ( depending whats on , of course ) .
