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.
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.
While the beauty of tropical style seems all too obvious as summer arrives Scandinavian-style bathrooms look great in every season all year long! You really do not have to worry about a style change once winter knocks on the door with this one. Light-filled airy and relaxing Scandinavian bathrooms draped in neutral hues feel cozy and refreshing even during the colder months and you can combine this style with rustic elements midcentury vanities or even a hint of Victorian glam to create a unique bathroom style of your own.
As it is in life so it is in home decor: there’s more than just black and white dark and light. There are many shades in between and sometimes they are the perfect piece to capture the balance. Often decorated with creative patterns the vessel sinks in-between will bring a completely unique element to your bathroom.
Every bathroom vanity is only truly complete when you couple it with the perfect lighting fixtures and a cool mirror. Mirrors with LED strip lighting on the edge combine both these features in a dazzling space-saving fashion. They are a great choice for those trying to create a refined spa-styled minimal ambiance without having to compromise on practicality. In the small powder room these illuminated mirrors remove the need for additional pendants of sconces next to the mirror and all you will ever need are neatly placed recessed lights.
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!
