Because your bathroom is the most popular room of your home, its wear and tear is accelerated. Outdated fixtures, rusted vents, and oxidized metalwork are common eyesores that, when updated, can transform the entire look of the room. The art of metalcrafting is a very unique specialty, and can apply to all sorts of hardware in your bathroom, including some retrofitting of existing appliances. Some uses for metalcrafting in your bathroom renovation ideas are:
• Ventilation grilles
• HVAC grilles
• Custom mirror framing
• Shower door handles
• Towel racks
• Shower curtain rods
• Custom light fixtures
• Safety railing for baths and showers
The nature of a bathroom almost always requires some sort of ventilation, which means, if nothing else, you can at least update your vent covers. There is a wide variety of custom grille designs out there, which means the possibilities are endless. A great project would be to choose a custom grille to cover your shower/bath vents. We recently installed one of our perforated grilles onto a shower vent in a Park Avenue apartment. The grille adds an enhanced element of style to the room.
Want your own Grecian bath house? Consider installing a beautiful grille that exudes elegance and classical Grecian vibes. Pair your Grecian grille with matching custom column covers to frame your mirror – and you could even implement custom hardware for your towel racks and bathtub safety bars to match.
Inspired by Baz Luhrmann’s recent adaptation of The Great Gatsby? It seems that the 1920’s art deco is coming back with fervor. Consider a custom metal light fixture to add to the ambience. Patricia Bayer, author of Art Deco Architecture, describes the art deco style as “architecture of ornament, geometry, energy, retrospection, optimism, color, texture, light and at times even symbolism.” Metalcrafting is a wonderful way to implement elements of unique structure and texture into your décor. Because of the extensive colors, polishes and finishes that can be applied to metal, there are almost endless possibilities to help you achieve the art deco look you desire. We found this great Art Deco lamp idea on Pinterest to jumpstart your creativity.
