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.
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!
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.
The best way to free up space in a small bathroom or even powder room is to look towards the forgotten corner for help! A smart vanity that utilizes corner space can free up the rest of the room and it creates a sense of spaciousness without trying too hard. This does not mean you need a custom corner sink that is unique and hard to get. Instead, opt for one of these slim, linear vanities that easily fits into the corner and couple it with other storage units, cabinets or even floating shelves to fashion a coherent look.
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.
We love powder rooms, as they offer the perfect place to experiment with daring new trends and hot colors that you might simply never try in any other room of your house. The small powder room feels detached from the rest of the house, and often a tangential theme, style or color scheme seems to work best here. So, why not turn this into your little laboratory where you embrace your favorite shade of orange this summer and fall?
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.
If the diagonal checkered pattern is too dynamic for you and you’d rather stay within the frame of classic and traditional, the straight monochrome checkered pattern could be the suitable alternative! The pattern feels old-fashioned, although versatile enough to be appropriate even in the bathrooms that are slightly leaning towards contemporary interior
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!
It is the rugged natural edge of the vanity top that gives it a unique identity and allows you to create a custom bathroom that is truly exceptional. But it is important to ensure that the lighting around the live-edge vanity is absolutely perfect to bring out its very best and highlight all those knots, nicks and cuts that make it so very special.
