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.
This one is a bit trickier than others and if you are not really the most organized person around it might be tricky to pull off. Open vanities are currently a hot trend and they do appear lovely in those picture-perfect bathrooms with neatly folded and stacked towels on display. Open vanities also give a small bathroom or powder room a spacious visual appeal and help in fashioning a clutter-free environment. All that is of course only true if you do not have a ton of items from hair dryers to a lineup of beauty products to tuck away! If you have enough shelf space elsewhere though the open vanity is a welcome addition.
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.
Round sinks with the recognizable shape of a bowl are perhaps the most popular vessel sinks. They have the power to make your bathroom look more elegant classy and noble. The clean shape of a round sink carries a certain reputation and can undoubtedly assure your bathroom’s wealthy appearance. We like to play around with contrasts and as there are surely many round sinks out there to choose from the simple tones of white and black or grey are the ones that bring most calming energy into the space.
Summer and tropical style is a match made in design heaven and it is barely a surprise that as each time the warmer months roll in everyone wants to tap into a bit of tropical richness and beauty. Once again you need not completely alter the style of the bathroom and adopt a tropical-centric look just for the sake of a few months. Instead usher in elements from the style like lush green plants with their giant leaves natural finishes like bamboo blinds or a rattan stool or maybe lighting fixtures inspired by the tropics. Mixing modern and tropical styles is pretty easy and often the result is truly spectacular.
While Progetto largely relies on its wonderful and sleek floating vanities to set the tone in the bathroom you can complement them with a smart series of modular shelves open units and cabinets to fashion the bathroom of your dreams. Each composition offers rich visual and textural beauty and is available in a wide range of finishes that usher in trendy hues and imaginative design. Their modular features ensure that you can alter and custom-craft a bathroom to fit in perfectly with the space on offer even as the boring old bathroom is instantly transformed into a chic and inviting space.
