Other changes can include using rugs instead of bathroom mats in order to give the space a more elegant look and to also add some pattern and color to the space. Contrasting textures would also have a similar effect on a bathroom‘s decor so consider mixing and matching various materials and finishes. And speaking of materials, marble is a popular option for a lot of high-end bathrooms and kitchens so consider it as one of your primary materials. You can use marble in combination with other natural stone accents for a welcoming and peaceful ambiance. The overall ambiance is very important in a bathroom. Let‘s say you want yours to create a resort-like feel or to have a spa-inspired look. In such a case you should consider using natural materials and simple finishes combined with green accents. Perhaps you could put some plants in the room or have some gravel or small stones on the floor, under the vanity or around the tub. It would also help to have a spacious bathroom with large windows. You can use dividers to separate the areas. Another cool thing you could include in the design is an accent wall which could be a waterfall or which could be made of rain glass or decorated with crystal beads.
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.
There are plenty of suitable places for shelves in the bathroom. One of the most common option is above-the-toilet shelves. It’s a way of putting this space to good use and at the same time of creating a focal point there that distracts from the toilet itself which isn‘t exactly an attractive part of the bathroom, aesthetically speaking.
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?
When you have little space to design in, a powder room’s pipe work may have to be on show. Boxing it in, to hide it, can take up valuable floor space. In such situations make a virtue of the necessity and accentuate what you would normally prefer to hide, like down pipes and waste pipes. Select brushed stainless steel faucet fixings and a towel rail that matches your basin’s waste pipe. Why not extend the idea and use metalwork for your basin, too? Chrome works well as an alternative to stainless steel. If your powder room is located under a stairwell it can be even more pushed for space than elsewhere. Don’t be put off a clear design ethos just because the ceiling may slope or because the room has an awkward corner to negotiate. Site the toilet at the place where headroom is most restricted. Keep the color scheme light in tone and hang a large mirror to give the feeling of more space. Another good tip it to install a hand wash basin that sits in a corner, so guests don't have to squeeze past it.
