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.
Bathroom mirrors have come a long way in the last few decades with options ranging from the simple and minimal to those that are far more ornate and bring back the charm and glitz of art deco at its flowing best. And if you are thinking about revamping your bathroom or want to plan for an entirely new bathroom then we have the latest and trendiest collection of mirrors to get you started in the right direction. Enjoy!
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.
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.
Powder rooms are usually small with the ultra-tiny ones barely having enough space for a person to squeeze in and make a proper turn inside! But we have been lucky enough to stumble upon a few powder rooms that are larger than some of the more modest bathrooms we have come across! If you are blessed with that amount of space feel free to go more ornate with your Victorian overhaul. 3D wall paintings and wall art are always welcome here as long as they fit in with the broader more classical theme and bright colors can be used more freely inside these larger spaces.
