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.
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.
Finding a balance between black and white in the powder room can be a tricky affair at the best of times, and a good segue between the two is to use the different shades of gray on offer. Gray is undoubtedly the hot neutral of this decade, and its ‘power’ only seems to grow with each passing season. Giving the powder room a gray tint while embracing the black and white look is a great way to combine both trendy and timeless elements in a seamless fashion.
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.
A bathroom with checkerboard floors is a playground for a monochrome interior. Whether you lean towards very bright bathrooms or darker ones, the diagonal checkerboard will work amazingly with both! As a decoration tip, a dark black bathtub is just the element that a bathroom like that needs, in order to nail the glamorous look!
A big and bright bathroom with a copper bathtub in the center is a sight for sore eyes! The bronze color of copper goes fantastically with polished wooden floors! This copper bathtub has a matte shade of bronze and is therefore a great darker piece for a bathroom with a mystical, dim vibe!
