While the beauty of tropical style seems all too obvious as summer arrives, Scandinavian-style bathrooms look great in every season, all year long! You really do not have to worry about a style change once winter knocks on the door with this one. Light-filled, airy and relaxing Scandinavian bathrooms draped in neutral hues feel cozy and refreshing even during the colder months, and you can combine this style with rustic elements, midcentury vanities or even a hint of Victorian glam to create a unique bathroom style of your own.
How smart is it to give an already ‘limited’ room a color scheme anchored in black and white? The answer to that question would be ‘very smart’, if you can get the balance between the two hues right and the lighting spot on. No matter what color you use in the powder room, poor lighting can give this small space a dark and dreary look. This could very well start you off on a cycle of constant redecorating and repainting without ever realizing that the real issue at hand is poor lighting. A sparkling chandelier coupled with clever ambient lighting is the ideal way forward in the black and white powder room.
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.
If we have to sum up the direction of current bathroom design trends in a single statement, then it would be “a desire among homeowners to find a relaxing, revitalizing and nature-centric retreat at home”. Timber definitely fits this billing, and it has made a grand comeback in 2018. Incorporating wood into the bathroom is no longer a taxing affair that keeps you constantly on the edge because you are perpetually worried about damage from moisture and infestation. Contemporary solutions even provide space for cheaper and eco-friendly reclaimed wood accent features that will serve you well for years to come.
Mirrored frames are once again ‘in’ and they work equally well in classic and modern bathrooms alike. They are a practical choice in the small bathroom as the frame of the mirror adds to the sparkle of the room and gives it a more airy and light-filled vibe. If mirrored frames are not your thing, then you might want to give colorful round mirrors like the ones from Valdama a shot. Whether you want a dash of peppy red in the bathroom to enliven a neutral bathroom or wish to elevate the colorful allure of the bathroom with a touch of nautical blue, it is the colorful mirror frames that come to the rescue.
Maybe your bathroom already looks rustic and old-fashioned, but maybe it’s more on the modern side. Either way, a copper tub is a good choice! It will either perfectly match the rest of the rustic interior or be that one vintage element that feels like a soul of the room!
