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.
We do not believe that your color choice should dictate the style of the powder room, but there is little doubt that orange puts on its best show in inviting Mediterranean bathrooms. Warmth, textural beauty and color are inherent parts of this style, and orange seems to perfectly capture all of these elements. While various shades of yellow can accomplish the same, orange takes the idea of Mediterranean-inspired opulence to a whole new level. If you are looking to wow your guests with a dramatic powder room, this is the color for you.
Pink might not really be a color of choice for most in the modern bathroom, but it surely stands out from the pack and gives the gray bathroom a snazzy, cheerful appeal. Since the color is inevitably associated with all things feminine, you cannot really escape this aspect while using it in the bathroom as well. But those daring enough to try hot pinks and bolder fuchsia will be able to fashion a modern bathroom that is anything but girlish! Look beyond the stereotype and you will easily see how this combination of gray and pink can create a cozy and comforting escape.
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 the right vanity along with other bathroom storage units is an essential part of the jigsaw puzzle that completes your dream bathroom. Whether you wish to turn that modest bathroom into a spa-inspired relaxation zone or wish to simply free up some space in the bathroom, these dashing vanities and bathroom storage units manage to do it all. Add to it those sleek floating shelves and stylish mirrors and you have a bathroom that is efficient and dazzling!
Among the various sinks you can choose for your bathroom, a vessel sink is surely the most stylish and innovative one. With its independent bowl-like look it’s a striking piece that draws all the attention to itself and has the power to make or break the room! There is a variety of vessel sinks to choose from, each and every one of them designed with precision. When picking out the right one, keep in mind the general decor of your bathroom, though you can easily let it take the lead and set the tone for the entire space as the trendiest piece in the room.
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.
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.
This type of checkered pattern offers a lot of dynamic within a monochrome space. The diagonal shapes give the illusion of spaciousness and even the smallest bathrooms seem like they extend further than they actually do. If you are in love with monochrome bathrooms but worry about them becoming too monotone, a diagonal checkered pattern will not let you down!
If wallpaper is not your thing, then custom wall decals and murals can also make a big impact in the black and white powder room, as the background itself is so very neutral in nature. It is best to use the wallpaper for all the exposed wall surfaces in really tiny powder rooms to cut down on visual fragmentation of space, while an accent wall in wallpaper makes sense in larger spaces.
