For those who are still unsure about how to craft a dream powder room, one of the best ways to start is by looking for a style that is distinctive, striking, beautiful and completely different from the rest of the home. This turns the small powder room into a delightful escape that is unlike anything else in the house, and Victorian splendor perfectly fits this billing. The style not only brings pomp and the ‘wow factor’, but it also promises other great powder room essentials like walls that come alive with either textural beauty or splashes of color and ornate fittings that add to the oomph.
Think about planning for the perfect bathroom that is inspired by a trip to your favorite spa (or even something far less extravagant) and you are often spending an enormous amount of time shopping for the right bathtub, tile and vanity. But in all this rush, another essential piece of bathroom décor seems to be neglected more often than not. The gorgeous and dashing mirror above the vanity is something that we all tend to easily forget about. Yet it is this that makes a huge difference to the ambiance of the bathroom and turns even the smallest powder room into a dashing delight.
The easiest way to add freshness, style and a relaxed ambiance into the bathroom (or any other room of your home) is by adding a potted plant or two. Indoor plants do not often require meticulous and constant care, and a light-filled bathroom with slightly damp conditions is perfect even for cool air plants or a scintillating living wall. With bathrooms going down the path of seamless indoor-outdoor interplay, it definitely is now far easier to usher in a healthy dose of natural goodness.
A beautiful chandelier adds glamour and brings a sense of opulence to the room without altering its color scheme. Styles such as Victorian, Art Deco, Hollywood Regency and even eclectic definitely need this sparkly touch to really give the black and white powder room that unmistakable allure. Add in a couple of chic sconces next to the mirror, and you have a powder room with a ‘high-end’ feel!
The mirror above the vanity makes a big impact on the style and ambiance of your bathroom, so it is essential that you buy one that fits in with the overall theme and look. If you are simply revamping an existing bathroom, then your options are already largely defined by the style of the bathroom. Mirrors with gold frames and ornate pattern look great in wide range of bathrooms that vary from Victorian to retro and art deco. Combine them with a smart, sleek vanity that fits in with the overall look and you have a stunning focal point that is both bright and beautiful.
Taking the living room into the bathroom might sound a bit crazy at first, but this definitely is the way forward for those planning for a brand new bathroom. The idea of ‘bathroom living’ is gaining momentum across the world, with designers and homeowners gravitating towards this innovative and luxurious concept. It is a trend that has also been personified in the many bathroom designs that we recently witnessed at Salone del Mobile 2017. Allowing you to add everything from bookshelves and comfy couches to a fireplace and TV to the bathroom, this fabulous upgrade will turn your existing bathroom into a soothing private sanctuary.
