It‘s hard to make a big design commitments such as painting the walls in your home a really bold and unusual color or replacing the old sofa with beanbag chairs. Compared to these changes, adding a few open shelves to the bathroom seems insignificant. But even small changes can have a big impact on the decor and ambiance of a room. The bathroom shelves are a very good example. Even though they don’t seem like a big deal, they can really make a difference.
The geometric design of this bathroom shelf system is perfect for modern and contemporary spaces. Notice the color combo which matches the nuances featured by the bottom cabinet. If a bathroom wall shelf is meant to serve as a display surface for decorations, then it needs to be simple and to stand out as little as possible. After all, the focus needs to be on the items that you place on it. Diversity is a good strategy when you’re working with simple, materials, forms and colors. Consider shelves with different forms, sizes and styles for the bathroom if you want to create something that’s visually interesting but also simple. There are lots of different bathroom shelf ideas to choose from. This one seems to be perfect for the storage of towels. Not only that, but they also double as towel holders.
Cohesiveness is important, especially when you want the ambiance in a space to be comfortable and inviting. The cohesiveness here is given by the coordinating elements such as the shower frame, the cabinet hardware, light fixture, faucet and others. This shower only has a partial frame which wraps around two sides of the glass panel, those that are adjacent to the wall and to the floor. They match the frame around the mirror and they serve as accent details for the bathroom‘s decor.
Most powder rooms will be short on space and have enough room for a toilet and wash hand basin only. Toilets don‘t vary very much but by introducing a non-standard basin into your room‘s design you can set the tone for the rest of the decor. If you find the right hand basin, that suits your tastes, it will be a good starting point for the rest of the design. White porcelain hand basins are perfectly fine, but they are ubiquitous. Consider another material instead. Wood, plastics and brushed metal are all very good alternatives. And if you decide that you want to stick to the classic porcelain basin, why not go for a more unusual shape to make it a bit more of a feature?
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?
