A powder room, also known as a half bath, contains simply a toilet and a sink. A 3/4 bath contains a toilet, sink, and either a tub or shower. A full bath contains all four elements – toilet, sink, shower, and tub. Master bathrooms are more likely to have a shower than they are a tub, although the showers of today's master baths are trending toward a larger footprint than traditional stand-up showers. Showers are certainly becoming more luxurious and elaborate, including multiple shower heads and streaming options, seating, and expanded walls. Enormous tubs reminiscent of jacuzzi-style fixtures did have their heyday, but they are going the way of all oversized and underused components in the bathroom. Instead, master bathrooms in particular are moving toward deeper, smaller tubs designed for two. This is both more economical in bathroom real estate as well as hot water heating.
Adequate lighting is another element that really makes or breaks the bathroom’’s functionality as well as safety. The best bathroom layouts include a blend of four types of light: task, ambient, accent, and decorative. Lighting should happen from the ceiling, from the walls, in the bathing zone, and wherever else improves the use and safety of the space. While powder rooms provide an excellent clean slate to really make a statement and a splash, design-wise, in your home, most bathrooms will be best received when they make sense with the design of the rest of your home. Colors don’t need to necessarily match, but they should flow to make the bathroom layout an appropriate part of the bigger whole. Hardware, such as the bathroom doorknobs, and other features, such as the doorframe and/or bathroom door color facing the rest of the house, should be consistent with whatever is in the style of the home elsewhere.
Speaking of scalloped tile designs and colors, a cool idea can be to combine three or more colors, one of which is a neutral. The others can be different shades of the same color or can contrast with each other for a more vibrant and eye-catching display. There are many different ways to introduce color into a bathroom, including painting the walls, choosing a particular type of flooring, through certain types of fixtures but also through accent details such as the fixtures and the little things like the color of the towels, a potted plant or a curtain. Keep in mind that a luxury bathroom rarely has very bold colors in its design.The bathroom mat can also be a source of color for this room. Of course, if the bathroom is large and spacious, you could actually have an area rug in there and that means a basically unlimited source of colors, patterns and interesting designs. There also certain combinations of colors which are known to look good and to suit certain styles. For example, in a modern or contemporary bathroom you might use shades of gray and yellow in combination with white. You can use these colors in a lot of ways, including on the furniture, the walls, the floor or even the little things like the soap dispenser, the towels or a bathroom plant.
