What is a relatively small bathroom instantly gains in space when it has a diagonal checkerboard floor! The pattern is perfect for narrow spaces that need the illusion of expansion. Say goodbye to claustrophobic bathrooms and hello to ones that feel like a dynamic cozy space!
Placing a glass shower into a monochrome bathroom will open up the space even more making it brighter and more transparent. If you feel like extending the checkered pattern beyond the flooring add some to the walls as well and play with mixing the diagonal and straight checkerboard tiles.
Bathrooms have evolved considerably in the last decade thanks to less expensive fittings and a revolution in manufacturing and design process that has made ‘luxury’ far more accessible for everyone. Today the concept of a spa-inspired master bathroom is being embraced globally and as homeowners struggle to cope with an increasingly frantic urban lifestyle they are veering towards a serene bathroom that acts as a rejuvenating personal refuge. Apart from the contemporary white backdrop styles such as Asian and tropical are a big hit as they give the comfy bathroom an exotic and exclusive ambiance.
Summer and tropical style is a match made in design heaven and it is barely a surprise that as each time the warmer months roll in everyone wants to tap into a bit of tropical richness and beauty. Once again you need not completely alter the style of the bathroom and adopt a tropical-centric look just for the sake of a few months. Instead usher in elements from the style like lush green plants with their giant leaves natural finishes like bamboo blinds or a rattan stool or maybe lighting fixtures inspired by the tropics. Mixing modern and tropical styles is pretty easy and often the result is truly spectacular.
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.
Powder rooms are usually small with the ultra-tiny ones barely having enough space for a person to squeeze in and make a proper turn inside! But we have been lucky enough to stumble upon a few powder rooms that are larger than some of the more modest bathrooms we have come across! If you are blessed with that amount of space feel free to go more ornate with your Victorian overhaul. 3D wall paintings and wall art are always welcome here as long as they fit in with the broader more classical theme and bright colors can be used more freely inside these larger spaces.
