A bold splash of color in the powder room has become something of a trend in recent times, with homeowners willing to add audacious wallpaper and bright hues to give this small space a huge personality. Much like the other ‘hot trends’, this love for vivacious color might not last forever, but one color scheme that never goes out of trend is the classic duo of black and white. If you have ever stepped into a black and white bathroom, you will easily understand the timeless elegance of this combination and why it is perfect for your fashionable powder room as well.
If you want your bathroom to be decorated in light tones, but would still like your vanity to stand out, choose a cream colored interior and pair it with a bright white vessel sink for the effect of gentle contrast.
From simple and classic styles to unique geometric designs and vivacious patterns – tiles in the bathroom simply never go out of pattern! If you wanted to go beyond those simple white or gray tiles, then 2016 is a great time indeed, as the amazing array of geometric and patterned tiles on offer only seems to be growing by the day. Despite some designers introducing bright and colorful tile patterns, we strongly suggest you stay away from using these extensively, as you might quickly fall out of love with them. To retile the bathroom again can be a tedious process, so it is best to cut back on audacious colors and focus on contrast and texture.
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.
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.
Black and white powder rooms still allow you to add a fair bit of color, and because of the neutral backdrop, every little drop of color makes a big visual impact. Maybe this is one of the biggest reasons for the popularity of the color scheme in bathrooms as well. You can just alter the accent additions (stuff like towels, floor mats and maybe even those flowers on the vanity) with changing seasonal trends to give the powder room a completely different vibe. One color that never seems to fail when coupled with black and white in the powder room is gold! When in doubt, turn to golden-tinted accessories to enliven and enrich the mundane powder room.
