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.
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.
From simple and classic styles to unique geometric designs and vivacious patterns – tiles in the bathroom simply never go out of pattern! If you wanted to go beyond those simple white or gray tiles then 2016 is a great time indeed as the amazing array of geometric and patterned tiles on offer only seems to be growing by the day. Despite some designers introducing bright and colorful tile patterns we strongly suggest you stay away from using these extensively as you might quickly fall out of love with them. To retile the bathroom again can be a tedious process so it is best to cut back on audacious colors and focus on contrast and texture.
Placing a glass shower into a monochrome bathroom will open up the space even more making it brighter and more transparent. If you feel like extending the checkered pattern beyond the flooring add some to the walls as well and play with mixing the diagonal and straight checkerboard tiles.
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.
Powder rooms are usually small with the ultra-tiny ones barely having enough space for a person to squeeze in and make a proper turn inside! But we have been lucky enough to stumble upon a few powder rooms that are larger than some of the more modest bathrooms we have come across! If you are blessed with that amount of space feel free to go more ornate with your Victorian overhaul. 3D wall paintings and wall art are always welcome here as long as they fit in with the broader more classical theme and bright colors can be used more freely inside these larger spaces.
