Bathrooms don’t really stand out usually. They are often simple and feature neutral designs. But sometimes it’s nice to add an accent. In the case of the bathroom, that accent can be the sink. Whether it stands out with its color, shape, texture or design, the sink can become the focal point of the bathroom without much effort. Sometimes the best way to make something stand out is to go back to the basics and use simple materials in a unique way. For example, this stone vessel sink has a very interesting design. Its natural, organic shape along with the use of natural stone as the main material make this sink a wonderful accent feature for any bathroom.
This is a very simple but also elegant bathroom. It’s small but instead of being cluttered it feels airy and chic. That’s because the goal was to create a warm and inviting décor. The walls feature a very nice texture thanks to the stone and the floor shares a similar color. Wood was used for some of the details as well as for the mirror frame and stools. Stone can also be a great material for a modern bathroom. This one, for example, features a simple and stylish décor with walls covered in stone and that feature a very interesting texture. The double sink and vanity share a color palette similar to the one used for the walls and the transparent glass door and the mirror create a sense of openness and spaciousness.
When you have little space to design in, a powder room’s pipe work may have to be on show. Boxing it in, to hide it, can take up valuable floor space. In such situations make a virtue of the necessity and accentuate what you would normally prefer to hide, like down pipes and waste pipes. Select brushed stainless steel faucet fixings and a towel rail that matches your basin’s waste pipe. Why not extend the idea and use metalwork for your basin, too? Chrome works well as an alternative to stainless steel. If your powder room is located under a stairwell it can be even more pushed for space than elsewhere. Don’t be put off a clear design ethos just because the ceiling may slope or because the room has an awkward corner to negotiate. Site the toilet at the place where headroom is most restricted. Keep the color scheme light in tone and hang a large mirror to give the feeling of more space. Another good tip it to install a hand wash basin that sits in a corner, so guests don’t have to squeeze past it.
If replacing your bathroom’s suite is a little too much to take on straight after the Christmas frenzy, why not bring a little fun to your washroom by updating your choice of wall coverings. Add a selection of random tiles to your walls, and floor, so that you get a vibrant look. Alternatively, use a novelty bathtub and link it, visually, to your wall with a mural or by having some bespoke wallpaper made, like this wonderfully strange cow design. Alternatively, use the tiles themselves as a mural. Many tile manufacturers will be able to give you a range of tile finishes that will suit your mural design ideas. If you don’t have the budget for an extensive makeover in the New Year, update your bathroom with a few well chosen accessories. How about a simple wooden bath tub caddy? They are ideal if you like to have a drink or a book with you when you bathe and great if you want to balance a mirror to shave. There are some cool bath mats available these days which will update your washroom with a minimum of expenditure, but choose one that matches your towels.
