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.
If you’re longing for your powder room to have the relaxing feel of a spa you’re not alone. In fact designers are increasingly focused on this space elevating it with eye-catching trends such as brass fixtures and modern seating. While special features can really take your powder room up a notch simply organizing the space can be the first (and most effective) step in creating the spa vibe you’re after.
The mirror above the vanity makes a big impact on the style and ambiance of your bathroom so it is essential that you buy one that fits in with the overall theme and look. If you are simply revamping an existing bathroom then your options are already largely defined by the style of the bathroom. Mirrors with gold frames and ornate pattern look great in wide range of bathrooms that vary from Victorian to retro and art deco. Combine them with a smart sleek vanity that fits in with the overall look and you have a stunning focal point that is both bright and beautiful.
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 bathroom with checkerboard floors is a playground for a monochrome interior. Whether you lean towards very bright bathrooms or darker ones the diagonal checkerboard will work amazingly with both! As a decoration tip a dark black bathtub is just the element that a bathroom like that needs in order to nail the glamorous look!
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.
