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.
Black and white powder rooms still allow you to add a fair bit of color and because of the neutral backdrop every little drop of color makes a big visual impact. Maybe this is one of the biggest reasons for the popularity of the color scheme in bathrooms as well. You can just alter the accent additions (stuff like towels floor mats and maybe even those flowers on the vanity) with changing seasonal trends to give the powder room a completely different vibe. One color that never seems to fail when coupled with black and white in the powder room is gold! When in doubt turn to golden-tinted accessories to enliven and enrich the mundane powder room.
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.
A beautiful chandelier adds glamour and brings a sense of opulence to the room without altering its color scheme. Styles such as Victorian Art Deco Hollywood Regency and even eclectic definitely need this sparkly touch to really give the black and white powder room that unmistakable allure. Add in a couple of chic sconces next to the mirror and you have a powder room with a ‘high-end’ feel!
A simple white vessel sink set on a rustic table creates balance between old and new countryside and elegance. The pairing gives your bathroom a noble but cozy appeal. The entire sink setting is simplistic and minimal; even so the rustic elements fill the seeming emptiness of the space.
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!
