The vintage coziness that comes with checkerboard floors is an absolute treat. Even though they′re black and white, the tiles will look incredibly beautiful when lit up by the morning sun! A clean and uncomplicated setting is well complimented by a checkerboard pattern that, with its dynamic diagonal look, prevents the monotony. This bathroom is a great example of how flexible and versatile checkerboard floors can be. If you want to include some farmhouse decor, you are at all liberty to do so as it will only complement the old-fashioned style of the room.
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.
Taking the living room into the bathroom might sound a bit crazy at first, but this definitely is the way forward for those planning for a brand new bathroom. The idea of ‚bathroom living′ is gaining momentum across the world, with designers and homeowners gravitating towards this innovative and luxurious concept. It is a trend that has also been personified in the many bathroom designs that we recently witnessed at Salone del Mobile 2016. Allowing you to add everything from bookshelves and comfy couches to a fireplace and TV to the bathroom, this fabulous upgrade will turn your existing bathroom into a soothing private sanctuary.
It is often the smallest of details that makes a big difference to the overall appeal of a room. When it comes to the modern bathroom, there are things beyond tiles, color scheme, style and fittings that can instantly alter its ambiance without demanding too much time or effort. Much like neatly stacked toiletries, a clutter-free bathroom vanity counter and lovely lighting; neatly displayed towels give the space a touch of refinement. What seems like a minor detail goes a long way in transforming your bathroom′s visual appeal and ushers in a sense of sophistication.
Metallic accents are playing a big role in the world of interior design in 2016, and surprisingly, this is a trend that will seamlessly blend in with the classic Victorian style. A powder room with a bold mirror frame in glittering brass, faucets and bathroom fittings in matching finishes, and even door knobs with an antique copper or bronze finish can combine to create a fabulous setting that is full of personality and warmth. You can head in the opposite direction by embracing cooler silver finishes as well!
The modern reincarnation of the rustic ladder in the bathroom gives you ample space to stack those towels with ease. Nifty ladder shelves take this a step further by providing space for baskets that can hold your towels along with other decorative pieces and toiletries. If a ladder shelf does not tickle your fancy, then how about a simple side table next to the bathtub that can hold everything from soap and shampoo to the deftly folded towel. Yes, it might not offer too much space, but it surely adds polished panache to the bathroom!
