For those who are still unsure about how to craft a dream powder room one of the best ways to start is by looking for a style that is distinctive striking beautiful and completely different from the rest of the home. This turns the small powder room into a delightful escape that is unlike anything else in the house and Victorian splendor perfectly fits this billing. The style not only brings pomp and the ‘wow factor’ but it also promises other great powder room essentials like walls that come alive with either textural beauty or splashes of color and ornate fittings that add to the oomph.
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.
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.
We start off our spotlight on trendy bathroom mirrors with a series that moves away from the usual and goes down a different geometric path. Instead of those mundane mirrors with simple straight lines try out a more dashing frame that makes bold visual impact even while easily blending in with the modern or contemporary style of your bathroom. Hexagonal and octagonal-framed mirrors are currently a trend and are making their way into bathrooms across the world. If you feel that these geo shapes are a bit too tacky then opt for the simple round mirror – a classic that never fails.
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.
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!
