Get away from the traditional bathroom look once the New Year has swung into place. Updating your bathroom's look for 2013 will give you a refreshed way of enjoying the room in your house where you ought to feel most indulged. There are plenty of novel approaches to take with contemporary bathroom design. From a complete refit of your bathing suite to the addition of some well chosen accessories, a January makeover for your bathroom should be one of your New Year's resolutions. If you like a long walk through the woods during the winter months, or enjoy the outdoors with some sporting activity that mean you get muddy, why not makeover your bathroom with a deep chocolate tone to give it a new look? Avoid traditional blues and whites. Go for creams and beige surfaces as well as muddy browns for a novel approach to your usual color palette. Large wall and floor tiles, that present an even a coffee hue, look great set off against brilliant white grouting. Brown bathrooms are ideal to clean up in, once you get home after a muddy workout.
An interesting combination is also featured here where the two rectangular sinks are complemented by round mirrors. The design of the faucets creates a smooth transition between these. A double sink vanity top can basically occupy an entire wall in a bathroom. The sinks can occupy most of the space and there can still be some counter space left to serve as a display platform or a place to store toiletries. If the mirrors of the two sinks light up there`s really no need for wall sconces. Instead, you can opt for a pendant lamp in the bathroom or even for a stylish little chandelier that matches the interior design. This looks like a really comfortable duo. The vanity has two sinks spaced out on the sides,two large storage compartments underneath them and two drawers in between. The counter matches the wall in front of the vanity but that‘s just an example of how you can achieve cohesion.
Most powder rooms will be short on space and have enough room for a toilet and wash hand basin only. Toilets don‘t vary very much but by introducing a non-standard basin into your room‘s design you can set the tone for the rest of the decor. If you find the right hand basin, that suits your tastes, it will be a good starting point for the rest of the design. White porcelain hand basins are perfectly fine, but they are ubiquitous. Consider another material instead. Wood, plastics and brushed metal are all very good alternatives. And if you decide that you want to stick to the classic porcelain basin, why not go for a more unusual shape to make it a bit more of a feature?
Freestanding bathtubs are also a more modern alternative for traditional designs. They have beautiful lean lines and it floats nicely in the space. Also, there`s something about the simplicity of their shape that makes them look very delicate and more sophisticated. After all, the tub is like a piece of furniture. It has to match the decor and if you love it you just have to have it.
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.
