Think about planning for the perfect bathroom that is inspired by a trip to your favorite spa (or even something far less extravagant) and you are often spending an enormous amount of time shopping for the right bathtub, tile and vanity. But in all this rush, another essential piece of bathroom décor seems to be neglected more often than not. The gorgeous and dashing mirror above the vanity is something that we all tend to easily forget about. Yet it is this that makes a huge difference to the ambiance of the bathroom and turns even the smallest powder room into a dashing delight.
A bathroom with checkerboard floors is a playground for a monochrome interior. Whether you lean towards very bright bathrooms or darker ones, the diagonal checkerboard will work amazingly with both! As a decoration tip, a dark black bathtub is just the element that a bathroom like that needs, in order to nail the glamorous look!
Among the various sinks you can choose for your bathroom, a vessel sink is surely the most stylish and innovative one. With its independent bowl-like look it’s a striking piece that draws all the attention to itself and has the power to make or break the room! There is a variety of vessel sinks to choose from, each and every one of them designed with precision. When picking out the right one, keep in mind the general decor of your bathroom, though you can easily let it take the lead and set the tone for the entire space as the trendiest piece in the room.
The opposite of round is rectangular and where round sinks bring contemporary touch, rectangular ones hold onto order and tradition. With that said, you can still find very impressive and creative rectangular vessel sinks that defy the tradition and pave the way for unique bathroom pieces!
How smart is it to give an already ‘limited’ room a color scheme anchored in black and white? The answer to that question would be ‘very smart’, if you can get the balance between the two hues right and the lighting spot on. No matter what color you use in the powder room, poor lighting can give this small space a dark and dreary look. This could very well start you off on a cycle of constant redecorating and repainting without ever realizing that the real issue at hand is poor lighting. A sparkling chandelier coupled with clever ambient lighting is the ideal way forward in the black and white powder room.
As it is in life, so it is in home decor: there’s more than just black and white, dark and light. There are many shades in between and sometimes they are the perfect piece to capture the balance. Often decorated with creative patterns, the vessel sinks in-between will bring a completely unique element to your bathroom.
