When we talk about bathroom renovations, we may think that faucets are just another accessory and are not a big deal. However, bathroom faucets have the power to redefine an entire bathroom style, giving us a wide range of options from traditional, cottage, modern or vintage. Thus, if you thought that picking out a bathroom faucet wasn’t important, you might re-evaluate your options and visualize the faucet as a centerpiece of your bathroom. Remember that faucets and sinks compliment each other. If for your bathroom makeover you are not replacing the sink, the bathroom faucet must endorse it. Here are 3 styles of bathroom faucet to choose:
Single Hole Faucet
If your sink or countertop only has a single hole, the options available are limitless and are very different from them. Besides of being stylish and versatile, single hole faucets are very easy to use, and for families with young children, it is a practical and fun option. You really want a single hole faucet, but have a 3 hole sink configuration? No problem; in that case, you can have a deck plate to cover the extra holes. These faucets are a good fit with drop-in and under mounted sinks.
Three Hole Faucet
The three hole faucets are divided in two: widespread and center-set. The widespread faucets are featured to have a spout and hot and cold handles separated from each other. This kind of faucet works best with pedestal, drop-in, and under mount sinks. On the other hand, the center-set faucets have spout and temperature handles integrated into one piece. These types of faucets are a better fit with under mounted and drop-in sinks.
Vessel Sinks Faucet
Vessel sinks are over counter mounted and need special faucets. Usually, vessel sinks come with a single hole faucet. These faucets need to have extra inches to reach the bowl in a comfortable manner. Wall-mounted faucets are also an excellent and elegant option for vessel sinks, adding style and personality to the space.

For every room of the house, we need some kind of storage. Cabinets are the most common choice, and among them we also have options. The first alternative is the most practical and economical, stock cabinetry, but their selection is limited and they are not customizable. The second option is semi-custom cabinets, that are more expensive but can be partly customized. And the last option is custom cabinets, that is the most costly choice but are completely customizable. For the purposes of this blog, we are going to focus on kitchen custom cabinets and its advantages.
1. Endless options
Custom cabinetry can be adequate to any need and style. The design options are limitless, going from the type of wood and colors to the kind of finishes and other details as the hardware or from where to open the doors, everything can be perfectly suited to your lifestyle and space.
2. High quality
Kitchen custom cabinets are handcrafted, meaning that the details, materials, and finishes are high quality and unique. The purpose of these cabinets is not only to be exceptional but also, you can be sure that are made to last longer than stock or semi-custom cabinetry.
3. Maximization of space
Cabinets can be customized to fit and maximize any kind of space. Whether your kitchen is small, or if space is not a problem but the layout is unusual, with shape-custom cabinetry all areas can be leveraged in the best possible way without wasting space or limiting your design.
This advantage is connected with the previous one, because if the cabinets are made to fit and maximize a specific space, the doors and the interior of the cabinets can also be adjusted to your storage needs. Cabinetry can be fitted to your height, so you will not have problems reaching high wall cabinets if you are short or bumping them if you are taller.

When renewing or choosing a new kitchen, generally, cabinetry is the higher investment you will need to do, thus, you will want to get it right. Selecting kitchen cabinets don’t need to be stressful, and when deciding the color, even if the market is full of options, it may be better to choose neutral colors. One of the benefits of neutral cabinets is the choice to add your personal style and preferred colors in accessories and decorative hardware, making easy and inexpensive to replace them anytime you want to refresh the space. White, black or gray cabinets are more popular for this reason. Walls, tiles, countertops, and even lighting fixtures can also have extra style in colors, but they can be more expensive to substitute in the future.
Other of the benefits of neutral cabinets is that increased the value of your home if you are planning to sell it because it will be easier to appeal to more buyers. On the other hand, if your plan is to keep your home as long as possible, there is not limit in customizing it. You can add other design features as storage accessories in the interior of the cabinets or if you like wine and is a collector, you can include wine racks. However, if essential items as cabinetry and countertops are in neutral colors, whether you want to try a new look for your kitchen will be and simple task.
A good example of neutral colors is this Baccarat kitchen by Scavolini. The contrast of white cabinets with black countertops gives the kitchen a spacious, clean and sober look and allows also the use of black in part of the flooring and golden in accessories. Black goes with everything, so it is also considered a neutral color. By keeping the colors neutral, it is easier to appreciate the door handles and others finishes and details.
If you are not a big fan of white, there are other neutral color options for kitchen cabinets as this Liberamente kitchen from Scavolini. Dark and light gray can be combined with any other color, giving you the freedom to experiment with walls and flooring colors. In this example, the contrast with yellow floor makes the room more open and friendly. Open shelves at the top of the cabinetry are a good option to maximize storage space for big kitchen utensils.
Another of the benefits of neutral cabinets is that the style will remain timeless. As these kitchens, you can also keep the cabinetry neutral and then complement it with your own personal touch.

Tubs and Showers
What could be more relaxing than a warm bubbles bath in a pleasant bathtub? In Siema, we offer a variety of soft rounded edges and rectangular freestanding bathtubs for the style that better fits you. Jetted tubs are very convenient to fix up a heavy day, or clawfoot tubs will give your bath a vintage look. Besides the bathtub, you may need a shower. Contemplate the possibility of using colors in your shower tile design to generate a vibrant environment, and if your have enough space, you can include a bench in the same shower tile where you can sit and relax, recalling a spa look.

If your bathroom lacks windows and natural lighting, you can consider adding LED lights and even better, LED mirrors. LED bulbs last longer than incandescent bulbs, do not generate heat and are environmentally friendly because they are less polluting (reducing CO2 emissions by 80%) and save energy. This type of lighting will give your bathroom a bright and technological touch, but if what you want is something less shining, dim lights or even candlelight are a good option for a relaxing environment. With a moderate budget, you can upgrade your bathroom lighting by adding dimmers or just some wall candleholders.
Just as the shower tiles, the rest of the bathroom can have colors that make you feel more calm and change your mood, because colors are capable of evoking different perceptions of the same space.

Choosing the wrong mirror can throw off the balance of your entire space – so let’s look at some options that may be suitable for your own home!
An oval shaped mirror is classic and will bring your bathroom a sense of continuity and elegance. With everyone opting for the full wall large mirrors, a medium sized oval mirror would bring a unique energy to your space. It would also be an ideal option to show off decorative wallpaper or painted murals on the same wall as the mirror.
The most modern option – rectangular mirrors can be easily adapted to the size of your bathroom, especially if you get them custom made or custom cut. They can easily be made to fit an entire wall in your bathroom, bedroom or any room in the home. They are sleek, minimal and simple. Siema carries rectangular bathroom mirrors with LED lights to vamp up your space and give you the perfect lighting in the morning.
For the bathroom with amped up style and unique interiors, a framed mirror would be the perfect fit. You can go for an intricately carved frame to go with an eclectic design style. In this type of bathroom, the mirror becomes the centrepiece and definitely the first thing you notice when you walk inside.
LED mirrors might be the best option for the tech savvy and lovers of sleek design. They will add value to your property and convenience to your mornings. In addition, they save energy – which guarantees you a lower electric bill if you use your main bathroom lights minimally throughout the daytime.

You don’t think about how important bathroom vanities are until you realize you lack ample light to do your makeup or don’t have enough space for your cleaning products and toiletries. Often times, mornings are a hectic time of day and a time where all you want is your space to be organized and clean. A clear space equals a clean mind. Putting on your makeup or giving yourself a morning shave can either be a calm, relaxing experience or a chaotic, nerve-wracking one when the area you are working with lacks functionality. A quality vanity will provide you with enough countertop space, will be easy to clean, and have enough convenient storage for your most important tools.
At Siema, we know how important a high quality vanity is, which is why we carry a wide selection of vanities – both transitional and contemporary. Our vanities have BLUM soft-closing hinges and you can choose between high gloss MDF or glass counters. Most vanities also have a variety of different colours available for you to choose from. We also offer wall-mount bathroom vanities, which achieve a cleaner, more modern look and allow you to store things underneath it, like a small kid’s booster stool.
Glass top vanities, on the other hand, create the illusion of a bigger bathroom by using transparency to trick the eye. Glass is easy to clean, a natural material and completely hypoallergenic.
If you have the space available to work with, we carry double sink vanities that come with ample storage space, counter space and 2 sinks. This is ideal for the couple that likes to get ready together in the morning, and have their own personal areas of the bathroom.

Ever strain to see if your foundation is the right shade or how well you’ve faded your haircut? These mirrors are lit with LED lights that are energy-saving to give you optimal visibility and great lighting.
You can choose between a variety of different sizes, shapes and lighting types. You can choose a mirror with a lit frame for a brighter option, or a backlit style mirror for a more dispersed lighting effect. You can also choose between circle, rectangular and square shapes. All mirrors function with a touch sensor to be turned on – making everyday tasks easier, more time efficient and not to mention, cool.
There are many things to consider before purchasing an LED Mirror for your bathroom. First, consider size. Do you want a small, medium or large sized mirror? In addition, one of the most important things to take note of is the size of your bathroom. If you have a small bathroom and wall space to work with, consider a larger size mirror to create a sense of openness and space. If you don’t have enough wall space, a smaller, circle mirror will do the trick just as well. if you are working with a lot of space, investing in the largest available size will give you ample light, style and the illusion of even more space.
We all know how energy efficient LED bulbs are. They emit very little heat, compared to the 90% heat released by regular, incandescent bulbs. These mirrors give you the flexibility of being able to turn on the mirror alone, without turning on any other light source. This saves money, and in the end, helps the planet in more ways than you can imagine.
We are one of the only distributors of LED mirrors in Vancouver and we are always here to help. Feel free to contact us for pricing, and our friendly and experienced team will assist you in creating your dream bathroom!
