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.
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.
The opposite of round is rectangular and where round sinks bring contemporary touch, rectangular ones hold onto order and tradition. With that said, you can still find very impressive and creative rectangular vessel sinks that defy the tradition and pave the way for unique bathroom pieces!
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.
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.
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.
