Tiberia Battaglia Bathrooms Design February 25, 2018 20:41:52
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A simple white vessel sink set on a rustic table creates balance between old and new countryside and elegance. The pairing gives your bathroom a noble but cozy appeal. The entire sink setting is simplistic and minimal; even so the rustic elements fill the seeming emptiness of the space.
