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.
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.
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.
But don’t think that a monochrome checkerboard can’t perform in a modern setting. The squared shapes offer stability, giving you the freedom to pursue other decor elements that don’t have such defined shapes and can really go all out on contemporary bathroom pieces!
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.
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.
