Bathroom renovations and restorations require a considerable amount of time, energy and resources. Sometimes even a simple re-tiling job can takes ages, and then there is the endless lineup of choices on offer for those looking to add a new vanity, bathtub or even a glass shower zone. It does help though if you have an understanding of what you want, what works in your bathroom and what are the hottest trends in bathroom design at the present time.
Every bathroom vanity is only truly complete when you couple it with the perfect lighting fixtures and a cool mirror. Mirrors with LED strip lighting on the edge combine both these features in a dazzling, space-saving fashion. They are a great choice for those trying to create a refined, spa-styled minimal ambiance without having to compromise on practicality. In the small powder room, these illuminated mirrors remove the need for additional pendants of sconces next to the mirror and all you will ever need are neatly placed recessed lights.
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.
Round sinks with the recognizable shape of a bowl are perhaps the most popular vessel sinks. They have the power to make your bathroom look more elegant, classy and noble. The clean shape of a round sink carries a certain reputation and can undoubtedly assure your bathroom’s wealthy appearance. We like to play around with contrasts and as there are surely many round sinks out there to choose from, the simple tones of white and black or grey are the ones that bring most calming energy into the space.
A simple white vessel sink set on a rustic table creates balance between old and new, countryside and elegance. The pairing gives your bathroom a noble but cozy appeal. The entire sink setting is simplistic and minimal; even so, the rustic elements fill the seeming emptiness of the space.
Placing a glass shower into a monochrome bathroom will open up the space even more, making it brighter and more transparent. If you feel like extending the checkered pattern beyond the flooring, add some to the walls as well and play with mixing the diagonal and straight checkerboard tiles.
