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.
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.
Most of the times, homeowners choose freestanding bathtubs because of the views. To understand better, imagine a large master bathroom with a large window and a strategically-positioned bathtub. It`s s style that allows you to choose and change the location of the bathtub and to take advantage of the layout and design of the bathroom.
An interesting combination is also featured here where the two rectangular sinks are complemented by round mirrors. The design of the faucets creates a smooth transition between these. A double sink vanity top can basically occupy an entire wall in a bathroom. The sinks can occupy most of the space and there can still be some counter space left to serve as a display platform or a place to store toiletries. If the mirrors of the two sinks light up there`s really no need for wall sconces. Instead, you can opt for a pendant lamp in the bathroom or even for a stylish little chandelier that matches the interior design. This looks like a really comfortable duo. The vanity has two sinks spaced out on the sides,two large storage compartments underneath them and two drawers in between. The counter matches the wall in front of the vanity but that‘s just an example of how you can achieve cohesion.
In addition to the design of the two sinks and of the vanity that accommodates them, you also have to think about the lighting. You'll need sconces for each sink. A double sink vanity mirror could span in front of the two sinks and can integrate accent lighting for both of them. There's also the option to have a single vanity with two sinks and two separate mirrors. Each mirror is placed in this case in front of a sink and there’s an empty wall section between them perfectly for installing a sconce. Don`t want to have the two sinks close to each other? It's not that uncommon to want your privacy. An option can be to have them placed some space apart from each other and to have a custom designed vanity that connects them and offers storage space for both. Pedestal sinks are space-efficient and they also look slender and elegant. You can easily fit two of these into a bathroom without it having to be very spacious.
