Rustic Bathroom Decor Ideas - Guest Post


Introducing Guest blogger Sue today - hope you enjoy her post! x

Hi my name is Sue Jason and I am a blogger at My-bathrooms blog. I have a passion for sharing ideas which include home improvement and decor. Today I will avail this opportunity to share my ideas of creating a rustic bathroom décor. When we say the word rustic, the first thing that comes into our mind is wood. Nothing can be more shabbier and rustic then raw wood. This is why it has been really “in” when decorating a room. Like other rooms in the house you can also give your bathrooms a rustic look with wood, it will create a really unique ambiance in your ordinary bathrooms.

This wooden chandelier adds a classic rustic touch to this shabby style bathroom.

A large mirror will enhance the rustic look of your bathroom.
You may replace your bathroom door with a one like in the picture above. It will really impress your guests.
This picture perfectly explains what a rustic bathroom will look like. It is all about creating an old rough décor in your bathroom using things you already possess

Sunlight House, Austria by VELUX

I've always been inspired by light. And VELUX® have created the perfect solution to allowing more light into one's home, with their wide range of state of the art windows. Take Sunlight House in Austria as an example. It is Austria's first carbon-neutral single-family house. It has been designed to take advantage of the direct sunlight flooding the house for the larger part of the daylight hours, and does so extremely efficiently. The house has a large sloping roof facing the sun, in which the VELUX windows sit, allowing maximum daylight and sunlight into the house.

The home was designed by Hein-Troy Architeken, an Austrian firm, which won a competition between up-coming architectural firms. VELUX are monitoring the project along with 2 other institutions, to measure the carbon footprint of the house, which is expected to be carbon neutral in 30 years time, once it has generated more clean energy than was used in its construction.

What I love most about this house is the fact that there is much more natural light flooding into the house than you would expect to see in a residential home. There is almost no need for any artificial light until it's completely dark. The large VELUX windows face southwest, allowing maximum sunlight to enter into the house, also giving wonderful views of the surrounding landscape. I think it would be great to have an artists' studio in a house like this! And the design of the house is so clever, that the arrangement of windows combined with roof angle and interior allows the house to stay warm in winter and cool in summer with exceptional ventilation through automated, intelligent control of the home's windows.
