What is a relatively small bathroom instantly gains in space when it has a diagonal checkerboard floor! The pattern is perfect for narrow spaces that need the illusion of expansion. Say goodbye to claustrophobic bathrooms and hello to ones that feel like a dynamic cozy space!
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.
This one is a bit trickier than others and if you are not really the most organized person around it might be tricky to pull off. Open vanities are currently a hot trend and they do appear lovely in those picture-perfect bathrooms with neatly folded and stacked towels on display. Open vanities also give a small bathroom or powder room a spacious visual appeal and help in fashioning a clutter-free environment. All that is of course only true if you do not have a ton of items from hair dryers to a lineup of beauty products to tuck away! If you have enough shelf space elsewhere though the open vanity is a welcome addition.
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.
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.
The opposite of round is rectangular and where round sinks bring contemporary touch rectangular ones hold onto order and tradition. With that said you can still find very impressive and creative rectangular vessel sinks that defy the tradition and pave the way for unique bathroom pieces!
