What is a relatively small bathroom instantly gains in space when it has a diagonal checkerboard floor! The pattern is perfect for narrow spaces that need the illusion of expansion. Say goodbye to claustrophobic bathrooms and hello to ones that feel like a dynamic cozy space!
The mirror above the vanity makes a big impact on the style and ambiance of your bathroom so it is essential that you buy one that fits in with the overall theme and look. If you are simply revamping an existing bathroom then your options are already largely defined by the style of the bathroom. Mirrors with gold frames and ornate pattern look great in wide range of bathrooms that vary from Victorian to retro and art deco. Combine them with a smart sleek vanity that fits in with the overall look and you have a stunning focal point that is both bright and beautiful.
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.
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.
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.
We start off our spotlight on trendy bathroom mirrors with a series that moves away from the usual and goes down a different geometric path. Instead of those mundane mirrors with simple straight lines try out a more dashing frame that makes bold visual impact even while easily blending in with the modern or contemporary style of your bathroom. Hexagonal and octagonal-framed mirrors are currently a trend and are making their way into bathrooms across the world. If you feel that these geo shapes are a bit too tacky then opt for the simple round mirror – a classic that never fails.
