To get the vintage rest room look, use an old piece of bedroom furniture. A distressed and antique looking chest of drawers makes for a great powder room storage unit. Either cut the back away so you can run pipe work through it or cut a hole in the top to recess your wash basin. Another classic counter top look, that evokes vintage charm, is to opt for a slab of marble, set against decorative tiling. It is not for everyone, but a cozy rest room is made into an inviting place by giving it the additional function of an occasional library. A single shelf with a couple of magazines and easy reading books is enough, but if you like the idea, why not make it a mini reading room?
Other changes can include using rugs instead of bathroom mats in order to give the space a more elegant look and to also add some pattern and color to the space. Contrasting textures would also have a similar effect on a bathroom‘s decor so consider mixing and matching various materials and finishes. And speaking of materials, marble is a popular option for a lot of high-end bathrooms and kitchens so consider it as one of your primary materials. You can use marble in combination with other natural stone accents for a welcoming and peaceful ambiance. The overall ambiance is very important in a bathroom. Let‘s say you want yours to create a resort-like feel or to have a spa-inspired look. In such a case you should consider using natural materials and simple finishes combined with green accents. Perhaps you could put some plants in the room or have some gravel or small stones on the floor, under the vanity or around the tub. It would also help to have a spacious bathroom with large windows. You can use dividers to separate the areas. Another cool thing you could include in the design is an accent wall which could be a waterfall or which could be made of rain glass or decorated with crystal beads.
Although the contrast between black and white or between a black frame and the glass panels that complete its design is often very elegant, crisp and modern, other design ideas can be just as satisfying. For example, it would be nice to add a little bit of warmth to the space and wooden floors are just what we have in mind. It is, of course, more practical to have tiles on the bathroom floor and the wood accents can come in the form of a wooden vanity, a shelf or even a ceiling. The black frame shower stands out from the rest of this bathroom‘s decor by bringing in a very clean and graphical form while everything else is more focused on warm tones and materials such as brown tones and wooden features.
You can still have a unified look in the bathroom even if you choose to have two sinks. They can be part of the same vanity and they can share the same wall mirror. They can also have matching faucets. If you decide that two separate mirrors would be a better fit for your bathroom, that would influence the overall cohesion but just a tiny bit. You can still maintain a unified look with a single vanity with two sinks. The space under the sink is usually used for storage but that‘s not a mandatory feature. You can have a thick vanity top with nothing underneath it and you can add the storage in a different form. It appears that each of the sinks has its own towel holder, one on each side of the vanity. Also, there are two large drawers, one for each user. The sinks share a single large mirror but there‘s a line at the center that clearly divides it in two sections. It`s a pretty elegant way to maintain privacy while saving space and giving the bathroom a unified decor.
In addition to the design of the two sinks and of the vanity that accommodates them, you also have to think about the lighting. You'll need sconces for each sink. A double sink vanity mirror could span in front of the two sinks and can integrate accent lighting for both of them. There's also the option to have a single vanity with two sinks and two separate mirrors. Each mirror is placed in this case in front of a sink and there’s an empty wall section between them perfectly for installing a sconce. Don`t want to have the two sinks close to each other? It's not that uncommon to want your privacy. An option can be to have them placed some space apart from each other and to have a custom designed vanity that connects them and offers storage space for both. Pedestal sinks are space-efficient and they also look slender and elegant. You can easily fit two of these into a bathroom without it having to be very spacious.
