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.
Of course, new bathroom designs are not limited to shallow square basins. For those who want a dramatic piece, large artful sinks made from all sorts of luxury materials are available. This conical, extra tall basin is from Stone Forest is matched by a tall, modern faucet from Franz Viegener. The single-handled faucet is the best choice for a tall basin like this one, where users might otherwise have to fumble around to reach the knobs. The drama of a tall faucet also enhances the vertical styling of the basin. A rich copper basin is a warm choice and it can be paired with either a traditional faucet mounted on the vanity or with more streamlined fixtures mounted on the wall. Here, the faucet options are from the Inciso Collection by Gessi. The choice of wall versus vanity mounting is driven by not only by visual preference but also by considerations of space and function. In a powder room, wall-mounted fixtures can save precious inches when space is at a premium.
While a table lamp is not safe for use on the bathroom, these Shutter Lights from A Good Thing are available in a hard-wired version that is perfect for the bathroom wall. The fixture's LEDs emit a diffuse light that you can control. The lid is the switch for turning the light on and off, but it can also control the amount of light that comes out, as well as the direction. It would be a very stylish alternative to a nightlight because it can be mounted on the bathroom wall near the door and easily controlled. In many cases, you will still need some sort of overhead light in the bathroom. that said, you don't have to go for the plain and boring sort from the home store. Instead, choose something that reflects the bathroom's interior design style. For instance, the fixture above has the shape of a basic ceiling light but is glammed up with rows of gems on the bottom as well as the sides. It`s a luxurious touch for a traditional or opulent bathroom design.
