What is a relatively small bathroom instantly gains in space when it has a diagonal checkerboard floor! The pattern is perfect for narrow spaces that need the illusion of expansion. Say goodbye to claustrophobic bathrooms and hello to ones that feel like a dynamic cozy space!
The perception that wallpaper in the powder room is only useful when you want to usher in bold pattern and bright colors is pretty far off from reality. Even those wanting a stylish and sophisticated black and white backdrop for the powder room can use wallpaper that brings plenty of pattern and personality to the limited space without actually disturbing the color scheme. Whether it is simple stripes or playful patterns inspired by the sights and sounds of nature, wallpaper in black and white is as much of a showstopper as those in striking shades.
Summer and tropical style is a match made in design heaven, and it is barely a surprise that as each time the warmer months roll in, everyone wants to tap into a bit of tropical richness and beauty. Once again, you need not completely alter the style of the bathroom and adopt a tropical-centric look just for the sake of a few months. Instead, usher in elements from the style like lush green plants with their giant leaves, natural finishes like bamboo blinds or a rattan stool, or maybe lighting fixtures inspired by the tropics. Mixing modern and tropical styles is pretty easy, and often the result is truly spectacular.
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.
Copper has always had an antique appeal that gives the room a time-tested vintage character. The rough bronze look will make it a centerpiece in a bathroom of any style! It has the charm that easily impresses everyone, but lovers of all-things-rustic will be able to appreciate it even more. If you are dreaming of soaking in a vintage bathtub that takes you into another era, copper bathtubs are the perfect thing for you!
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.
