If you’re longing for your powder room to have the relaxing feel of a spa, you’re not alone. In fact, designers are increasingly focused on this space, elevating it with eye-catching trends such as brass fixtures and modern seating. While special features can really take your powder room up a notch, simply organizing the space can be the first (and most effective) step in creating the spa vibe you’re after.
Bathrooms have evolved considerably in the last decade thanks to less expensive fittings and a revolution in manufacturing and design process that has made ‘luxury’ far more accessible for everyone. Today, the concept of a spa-inspired master bathroom is being embraced globally, and as homeowners struggle to cope with an increasingly frantic urban lifestyle, they are veering towards a serene bathroom that acts as a rejuvenating, personal refuge. Apart from the contemporary white backdrop, styles such as Asian and tropical are a big hit, as they give the comfy bathroom an exotic and exclusive ambiance.
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.
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.
This one is a bit trickier than others, and if you are not really the most organized person around, it might be tricky to pull off. Open vanities are currently a hot trend, and they do appear lovely in those picture-perfect bathrooms with neatly folded and stacked towels on display. Open vanities also give a small bathroom or powder room a spacious visual appeal and help in fashioning a clutter-free environment. All that is of course only true if you do not have a ton of items from hair dryers to a lineup of beauty products to tuck away! If you have enough shelf space elsewhere though, the open vanity is a welcome addition.
As it is in life, so it is in home decor: there’s more than just black and white, dark and light. There are many shades in between and sometimes they are the perfect piece to capture the balance. Often decorated with creative patterns, the vessel sinks in-between will bring a completely unique element to your bathroom.
