Tiberia Battaglia Bathrooms Design September 08, 2017 19:35:56
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.
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.
Bathroom renovations and restorations require a considerable amount of time energy and resources. Sometimes even a simple re-tiling job can takes ages and then there is the endless lineup of choices on offer for those looking to add a new vanity bathtub or even a glass shower zone. It does help though if you have an understanding of what you want what works in your bathroom and what are the hottest trends in bathroom design at the present time.
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.
From simple and classic styles to unique geometric designs and vivacious patterns – tiles in the bathroom simply never go out of pattern! If you wanted to go beyond those simple white or gray tiles then 2016 is a great time indeed as the amazing array of geometric and patterned tiles on offer only seems to be growing by the day. Despite some designers introducing bright and colorful tile patterns we strongly suggest you stay away from using these extensively as you might quickly fall out of love with them. To retile the bathroom again can be a tedious process so it is best to cut back on audacious colors and focus on contrast and texture.
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.
