The perception that wallpaper in the powder room is only useful when you want to usher in bold pattern and bright colors is pretty far off from reality. Even those wanting a stylish and sophisticated black and white backdrop for the powder room can use wallpaper that brings plenty of pattern and personality to the limited space without actually disturbing the color scheme. Whether it is simple stripes or playful patterns inspired by the sights and sounds of nature wallpaper in black and white is as much of a showstopper as those in striking shades.
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.
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 2017. 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.
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.
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!
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.
