Waves in the Distance A kitchen with an ocean view need not be just relegated to homes that sit right next to the beach, as those in the distance can also make the most of their location with some smart design. A home sitting on an elevated lot and offering a bird‘s eye view of the coastline in the distance allows you to shape a kitchen that enables you to savor the scenery without letting it dominate the ambiance of the room.
Metallic towel racks and holders do much more than just provide space for those additional towels. Providing textural contrast to contemporary bathrooms full of polished finishes, brass and copper lead the pack here. Those who want a less impactful towel holder can opt for one in a cooler metallic finish.
Adding Color to the Vanity Most modern vanities offer a variety of options for those looking to create a curated towel display in the bathroom. It is the two part floating vanity that is without a doubt the most popular choice among homeowners in 2017. The space between the top and bottom unit allows you to display those fresh, folded towels in a simple, yet visually effective fashion. Since most of these units come in white or shades of gray, towels in bold orange, bright purple, navy blue or even sunny yellow tend to grab your attention straightaway. You can change the color of choice with changing seasons and trends to freshen up the bathroom.
Rugged and Refined The general perception is that live-edge furniture is only in homes with a rustic bent and should only be used in spaces with farmhouse, Mediterranean or other exotic styles. That, of course, is a fad that you will quickly get past once you actually start seeing how amazing live-edge pieces can be when used in contemporary and modern interiors. It is no different in the case of the live-edge vanity top and the contemporary bathroom clad in sophisticated gray or relaxing white. The neutral backdrop of a modern bathroom allows the vanity top to shine through, even as its rough finish and woodsy charm bring a whole new dimension to the refined setting.
The Warmth of Mediterranean Style We do not believe that your color choice should dictate the style of the powder room, but there is little doubt that orange puts on its best show in inviting Mediterranean bathrooms. Warmth, textural beauty and color are inherent parts of this style, and orange seems to perfectly capture all of these elements. While various shades of yellow can accomplish the same, orange takes the idea of Mediterranean-inspired opulence to a whole new level. If you are looking to wow your guests with a dramatic powder room, this is the color for you.
Painted glass is always a treat. A vessel sink made of decorated glass is captivating and innovative, a functional and essential bathroom piece that we can easily call a work of art. It could be a decor element in and of itself, but the fact that it gets to be a part of your morning and evening routine is what makes its appearance even more important and monumental.
A simple white vessel sink set on a rustic table creates balance between old and new, countryside and elegance. The pairing gives your bathroom a noble but cozy appeal. The entire sink setting is simplistic and minimal; even so, the rustic elements fill the seeming emptiness of the space.
Think of the vanity, the medicine cabinet above, mirror and the shelves next to it as one large, single unit and plan accordingly. It is best to make sure that each of them complement the other visually and using pieces with same style and color definitely helps in reducing visual fragmentation of space in a small bathroom.
Live-edge vanity tops can be combined with floating vanity units made in a different material or can also be used as standalone pieces that offer exactly what you need in smaller bathrooms and powder rooms. They range from the spectacular to the simple, and yet every one of these vanities ushers in a cool, organic vibe that gives the bathroom a major facelift. Whether you are looking to give your existing bathroom a quick makeover or still searching for that ideal vanity to complete your new powder room, here is an option that you just cannot overlook.
Have You Considered Pink? Pink might not really be a color of choice for most in the modern bathroom, but it surely stands out from the pack and gives the gray bathroom a snazzy, cheerful appeal. Since the color is inevitably associated with all things feminine, you cannot really escape this aspect while using it in the bathroom as well. But those daring enough to try hot pinks and bolder fuchsia will be able to fashion a modern bathroom that is anything but girlish! Look beyond the stereotype and you will easily see how this combination of gray and pink can create a cozy and comforting escape.
