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.
Summer and tropical style is a match made in design heaven and it is barely a surprise that as each time the warmer months roll in everyone wants to tap into a bit of tropical richness and beauty. Once again you need not completely alter the style of the bathroom and adopt a tropical-centric look just for the sake of a few months. Instead usher in elements from the style like lush green plants with their giant leaves natural finishes like bamboo blinds or a rattan stool or maybe lighting fixtures inspired by the tropics. Mixing modern and tropical styles is pretty easy and often the result is truly spectacular.
The best part about Progetto is the way in which it creates a bathroom that seems like a continuation of the rest of your contemporary home. From the understated to the extravagant if you want to get in on the bathroom living trend these fabulous compositions from Inda surely offer a great starting point and picture-perfect inspiration!
Every bathroom vanity is only truly complete when you couple it with the perfect lighting fixtures and a cool mirror. Mirrors with LED strip lighting on the edge combine both these features in a dazzling space-saving fashion. They are a great choice for those trying to create a refined spa-styled minimal ambiance without having to compromise on practicality. In the small powder room these illuminated mirrors remove the need for additional pendants of sconces next to the mirror and all you will ever need are neatly placed recessed lights.
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.
If we have to sum up the direction of current bathroom design trends in a single statement then it would be “a desire among homeowners to find a relaxing revitalizing and nature-centric retreat at home”. Timber definitely fits this billing and it has made a grand comeback in 2017. Incorporating wood into the bathroom is no longer a taxing affair that keeps you constantly on the edge because you are perpetually worried about damage from moisture and infestation. Contemporary solutions even provide space for cheaper and eco-friendly reclaimed wood accent features that will serve you well for years to come.
