But don’t think that a monochrome checkerboard can’t perform in a modern setting. The squared shapes offer stability giving you the freedom to pursue other decor elements that don’t have such defined shapes and can really go all out on contemporary bathroom pieces!
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.
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.
Bathrooms have evolved considerably in the last decade thanks to less expensive fittings and a revolution in manufacturing and design process that has made ‘luxury’ far more accessible for everyone. Today the concept of a spa-inspired master bathroom is being embraced globally and as homeowners struggle to cope with an increasingly frantic urban lifestyle they are veering towards a serene bathroom that acts as a rejuvenating personal refuge. Apart from the contemporary white backdrop styles such as Asian and tropical are a big hit as they give the comfy bathroom an exotic and exclusive ambiance.
If you want your bathroom to be decorated in light tones but would still like your vanity to stand out choose a cream colored interior and pair it with a bright white vessel sink for the effect of gentle contrast.
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.
