Backlit mirrors have already replaced a lot of traditional mirrors, especially in modern and contemporary bathrooms. They’re very appreciated for their special features, especially all the advantages that clearly appeal to a lot of people. But what exactly makes these mirrors so special? Well a lot of things so let’s focus a bit on that. One of the biggest advantages when using bathroom mirrors with light strips that are built in is the fact that there are no unflattering shadows. There’s no need to worry about the placement of the wall sconces or pendant lamps. The backlit mirror with light up everything in a pleasant and uniform manner. You immediately notice an improvement when switching from a regular mirror.
To get the vintage rest room look, use an old piece of bedroom furniture. A distressed and antique looking chest of drawers makes for a great powder room storage unit. Either cut the back away so you can run pipe work through it or cut a hole in the top to recess your wash basin. Another classic counter top look, that evokes vintage charm, is to opt for a slab of marble, set against decorative tiling. It is not for everyone, but a cozy rest room is made into an inviting place by giving it the additional function of an occasional library. A single shelf with a couple of magazines and easy reading books is enough, but if you like the idea, why not make it a mini reading room?
Freestanding bathtubs are also a more modern alternative for traditional designs. They have beautiful lean lines and it floats nicely in the space. Also, there`s something about the simplicity of their shape that makes them look very delicate and more sophisticated. After all, the tub is like a piece of furniture. It has to match the decor and if you love it you just have to have it.
If you like the idea of a wet room but still want a traditional sort of bathroom, go for a partition system. This will afford you the best of both worlds. By installing a glazed partition you can create two distinct zones. One will be for bathing and showering and the other can remain dry. After all, if you simply want to use the toilet a wet room that has been recently used to shower in can sometimes be unappealingly wet. Make over your bathroom so that you have two areas, one dry one wet, but both sympathetically decorated to create a unified look. An on trend look for modern bathrooms is to expose the brickwork. Why hide all the surfaces under tiling, especially if the room is large enough that you can avoid splashing. This look is especially great in apartments but will also work well in regular homes. Keep your shower away from the exposed walls, and use an enclosure so that your brickwork does not become stained.
This bathroom is really well organized, featuring a large shower enclosure with a black frame and tempered glass panels and a tiled floor while the rest of the space has wood on the floor and brightly-colored furniture and accessories. The beauty of this small bathroom stands in its simplicity. The black frame of the walk in shower matches the frame around the large wall mirror as well as the hardware and fixtures that complete the decor. Once again, the black frames that complement the glass shower panels match the hardware and fixtures and the result is a clean and elegant contrast and an interesting play of dark and light tones. Sometimes even when the contrasts of colors are strong, they become less striking when the colors and materials are more diverse. This spacious bathroom is a wonderful example. It features a green living wall and a wooden floor.
