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.
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.
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.
Among the various sinks you can choose for your bathroom a vessel sink is surely the most stylish and innovative one. With its independent bowl-like look it’s a striking piece that draws all the attention to itself and has the power to make or break the room! There is a variety of vessel sinks to choose from each and every one of them designed with precision. When picking out the right one keep in mind the general decor of your bathroom though you can easily let it take the lead and set the tone for the entire space as the trendiest piece in the room.
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.
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.
