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.
Mirrored frames are once again ‘in’ and they work equally well in classic and modern bathrooms alike. They are a practical choice in the small bathroom as the frame of the mirror adds to the sparkle of the room and gives it a more airy and light-filled vibe. If mirrored frames are not your thing then you might want to give colorful round mirrors like the ones from Valdama a shot. Whether you want a dash of peppy red in the bathroom to enliven a neutral bathroom or wish to elevate the colorful allure of the bathroom with a touch of nautical blue it is the colorful mirror frames that come to the rescue.
How smart is it to give an already ‘limited’ room a color scheme anchored in black and white? The answer to that question would be ‘very smart’ if you can get the balance between the two hues right and the lighting spot on. No matter what color you use in the powder room poor lighting can give this small space a dark and dreary look. This could very well start you off on a cycle of constant redecorating and repainting without ever realizing that the real issue at hand is poor lighting. A sparkling chandelier coupled with clever ambient lighting is the ideal way forward in the black and white powder room.
But don’t think that a monochrome checkerboard can’t perform in a modern setting. The squared shapes offer stability giving you the freedom to pursue other decor elements that don’t have such defined shapes and can really go all out on contemporary bathroom pieces!
As it is in life so it is in home decor: there’s more than just black and white dark and light. There are many shades in between and sometimes they are the perfect piece to capture the balance. Often decorated with creative patterns the vessel sinks in-between will bring a completely unique element to your bathroom.
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.
