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.
Much warmer looking than chrome, brass is currently one of the big bathroom trends. This Nudo collection by Spanish designers and founders of MUT studio Alberto Sánchez and Eduardo Villalón features a wall mounted or hanging system for all the fixtures. The wall-mounted taps and the gorgeous base for the free-standing tub put the focus directly on the stylish metal. If you think about it, large mirrors could be considered a waste of space, especially in a small bathroom. Adding a glass shelf across the bottom portion offers another spot to display a small item or two, or just a place to perch a few toiletries while getting ready. This is especially valuable if countertop space is at a premium. When empty, the shelf is merely a design element on the large expanse of the mirror’s surface.
Suspended lights and chandeliers can have a place in the bathroom too. While they might not be the style to install over a vanity, they could serve as overhead fixtures or hang above a bathtub. In fact, choosing a statement fixture to hang over a freestanding tub creates a luxurious and relaxing setting for the bathroom. This golden piece is from the Roinn series by Luxi Studioworks of Canada. The Art Deco-inspired pattern is perfect for a bathroom that needs a touch of glamour. If the gold is too bold, the fixture comes in other finishes that are not as shiny but no less stylish. Bright and modern, this type of fixture would be great in a minimalist or industrial bathroom design. Created by Studio Endo, the Alpine V is a modular style from the Alpine chandelier collection. The customizable arrangement could hang along a wall as shown or be used over a tub or other section of the bathroom. It's a cool lighting fixture that provides plenty of illumination.
