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.
Details make the difference and nowhere is this truer than in this black-framed shower. This architectural detail may be slight, but it has a big impact and has become one of today’s important bathroom trends. A modern bathroom from Inda coordinates the dark framing with matching fixtures and a dark, floating vanity. Black architectural framing, however, goes well with a number of different styles and can be paired with lighter woods. It's a marvelous way to turn a sh into a major design element. For those who have a large space, adding an island is an unexpected way to create a useful and stylish bathroom. It only makes sense when you think about how a kitchen island increases the functionality of a kitchen. Why not do the same thing in the bathroom? This island from Inda has a marble surfacel and a modern chrome base. The piece is highlighted by the walls, which are covered in an amazing mosaic tile that is flecked with metallic accents, adding dimension. We've already mentioned that pedestal sinks are trending, but marble pedestals are a force on their own. Kreoo's marble pedestals are luxurious marble sinks that have very distinctive, modern silhouettes. The Gong model has an ovoid shape that looks like it has been sliced open at an angle. Designed by Enzo Berti, the hollow oval resting on the tapered column has a very organic appearance. The other two sinks are similar but have a much more rounded shape. They are all accompanied by the Kora Bathtub, also done in a dark marble.
In a way, the tub is the bathroom equivalent of the bed, being the largest fixture in the room and most often a must-have. That being said, turning the tub into a focal point seems like a wonderful idea, especially in the case of a luxury bathroom where you have options such as the Koi bathtub. It has an aged brushed brass base and a beautiful patina. The exterior is decorated with scales reminiscent of the Japanese Koi carp. Looking at some of these products you're probably imagining that the remodel cost of a luxury bathroom would be very high. While that can definitely be true in some cases, it’s not necessarily a general rule. It’s possible to keep the cost low by focusing on some of the small pieces, the accessories such as the wall mirror or the sconces. Here, for example, you can see the Bronx mirror displayed above a Diamond vanity, complemented by two Burj wall lamps. Perhaps you could find your own winning combo.
