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!
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.
The checkerboard pattern has long been present in home design and by now has a strong historic impression. It has the power to make a room look grandiose and luxurious. Whether the pattern is monochromatic, which is the most common choice, or gently colored, the room instantly gets a dynamic look that feels organized and precise. The pattern itself is a wonderful choice for a bathroom, as it makes it seem bigger and slightly more special. Check out these 30 vintage checkered bathrooms!
Despite having to shop for décor and vanity that saves space, one does not really have to forego their ‘style ambitions’ for the bathroom. A small art deco style vanity in the corner can be a big hit and give your bathroom an alternative look that takes it away from the mundane. These ornate, slim and at times sculptural pedestal sinks and modest vanities can help in completely reimagining the bathroom space. Those who prefer a more ‘organic’ vibe can opt for the natural wood look while ones seeking a bit more glitz and glam can consider shopping for a vanity with mirrored finish and Hollywood Regency style. The choices are well and truly endless!
We are always on the lookout for ways in which we can maximize space without giving up on either style or functionality. When it comes to contemporary bathrooms, it is the vanity and the sink with the mirror above that end up defining both the aesthetics of the space and its final style. The floating vanity is undoubtedly the most popular choice among homeowners as it allows one to create a sense of spaciousness visually without sacrificing practicality. But what if you could take this space-savvy goodness a notch higher with corner vanities and smart décor that revamp your bathroom with a dash of panache?
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.
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.
It is often the smallest of details that makes a big difference to the overall appeal of a room. When it comes to the modern bathroom, there are things beyond tiles, color scheme, style and fittings that can instantly alter its ambiance without demanding too much time or effort. Much like neatly stacked toiletries, a clutter-free bathroom vanity counter and lovely lighting; neatly displayed towels give the space a touch of refinement. What seems like a minor detail goes a long way in transforming your bathroom’s visual appeal and ushers in a sense of sophistication.
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 start off our spotlight on trendy bathroom mirrors with a series that moves away from the usual and goes down a different geometric path. Instead of those mundane mirrors with simple, straight lines, try out a more dashing frame that makes bold visual impact even while easily blending in with the modern or contemporary style of your bathroom. Hexagonal and octagonal-framed mirrors are currently a trend and are making their way into bathrooms across the world. If you feel that these geo shapes are a bit too tacky, then opt for the simple round mirror – a classic that never fails.
