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.
It is easy to fall in love with a color combination that is as alluring, charming and trendy as yellow and gray. Arguably one of the hottest color duos around, yellow and gray bring along with them a unique charisma that combines elegant refinement with a dash of sun-kissed goodness. It is a beautiful blend of sophistication and cheerfulness that can be used in versatile spaces ranging from the contemporary living room to the relaxing bedroom. Today, we turn our attention towards bathrooms that are draped in this hip and timeless color scheme.
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.
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.
All you need here is the right slab of wood, and the more untreated and rugged it is, the better. Of course, some bathrooms demand a more polished approach to even the live-edge vanity top, but we will get to that later. A beautiful and natural slab of wood acting as a vanity top in the bathroom often ends up becoming the unrivaled focal point of the space it graces, and it can also define and determine the style of the room itself. Despite the vanity top acting as an entire vanity on its own, there is plenty of counter space here, and you can extend the length of the vanity top to create even more!
Think of the vanity, the medicine cabinet above, mirror and the shelves next to it as one large, single unit and plan accordingly. It is best to make sure that each of them complement the other visually and using pieces with same style and color definitely helps in reducing visual fragmentation of space in a small bathroom.
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!
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?
Copper has always had an antique appeal that gives the room a time-tested vintage character. The rough bronze look will make it a centerpiece in a bathroom of any style! It has the charm that easily impresses everyone, but lovers of all-things-rustic will be able to appreciate it even more. If you are dreaming of soaking in a vintage bathtub that takes you into another era, copper bathtubs are the perfect thing for you!
