It is often the smallest of details that makes a big difference to the overall appeal of a room. When it comes to the modern bathroom, there are things beyond tiles, color scheme, style and fittings that can instantly alter its ambiance without demanding too much time or effort. Much like neatly stacked toiletries, a clutter-free bathroom vanity counter and lovely lighting; neatly displayed towels give the space a touch of refinement. What seems like a minor detail goes a long way in transforming your bathroom’s visual appeal and ushers in a sense of sophistication.
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.
The first half of today’s post is dedicated to making smart design choices. By giving your powder room a clean, tidy look, you will set the foundation for an organized space. Plus, your bathroom will have a clutter-free feel that will make it extra obvious when something is out of place. Which will encourage you to sort it or stash it!
We are always on the lookout for ways in which we can maximize space without giving up on either style or functionality. When it comes to contemporary bathrooms, it is the vanity and the sink with the mirror above that end up defining both the aesthetics of the space and its final style. The floating vanity is undoubtedly the most popular choice among homeowners as it allows one to create a sense of spaciousness visually without sacrificing practicality. But what if you could take this space-savvy goodness a notch higher with corner vanities and smart decor that revamp your bathroom with a dash of panache?
Refreshing Presence of Green! Green and gray is a less common combination in the bathroom (or for that matter, in any room of the house), and it is hard to pull off unless you get the balance absolutely right. You might want to stay away from very dark shades of green when combining it with gray in the bathroom, as it can create a dull and at times garish atmosphere. Lighter tones of gray combine with lime green and olive green, with a matte finish working well in classic, Victorian and shabby chic style bathrooms, while contemporary bathrooms in gray benefit from simple pops of green.
Marble is a very suitable material for vessel sinks as it immediately delivers the message of glamour and superiority. A darker vessel sink, especially one placed on a dark wooden vanity, is a compelling piece that can easily contrast the rest of the bathroom’s light decor and so create the harmony between the two sides of the color spectrum.
Even when they are processed and neatly shaped, stone vessel sinks still have that organic feel to them; a certain striking appeal that works well both as an elegantly shaped stone bowl and a rough round sink that’s coarse on the outside and smooth on the inside.
Round Vessel Sinks in White and Dark Tones Round sinks with the recognizable shape of a bowl are perhaps the most popular vessel sinks. They have the power to make your bathroom look more elegant, classy and noble. The clean shape of a round sink carries a certain reputation and can undoubtedly assure your bathroom’s wealthy appearance. We like to play around with contrasts and as there are surely many round sinks out there to choose from, the simple tones of white and black or grey are the ones that bring most calming energy into the space.
Keeping countertops clean may seem obvious, but it‘s amazing how not lining them with grooming products in mismatched bottles will instantly create a sleek feel. Read on, and we‘ll tell you just how you can avoid a cluttered look and stash essentials elsewhere. If you must place items on the countertop, try grouping them in attractive containers, or opt for matching bottles. More on that later!
A Slab of Wood All you need here is the right slab of wood, and the more untreated and rugged it is, the better. Of course, some bathrooms demand a more polished approach to even the live-edge vanity top, but we will get to that later. A beautiful and natural slab of wood acting as a vanity top in the bathroom often ends up becoming the unrivaled focal point of the space it graces, and it can also define and determine the style of the room itself. Despite the vanity top acting as an entire vanity on its own, there is plenty of counter space here, and you can extend the length of the vanity top to create even more!
