When you have little space to design in, a powder room’s pipe work may have to be on show. Boxing it in, to hide it, can take up valuable floor space. In such situations make a virtue of the necessity and accentuate what you would normally prefer to hide, like down pipes and waste pipes. Select brushed stainless steel faucet fixings and a towel rail that matches your basin’s waste pipe. Why not extend the idea and use metalwork for your basin, too? Chrome works well as an alternative to stainless steel. If your powder room is located under a stairwell it can be even more pushed for space than elsewhere. Don’t be put off a clear design ethos just because the ceiling may slope or because the room has an awkward corner to negotiate. Site the toilet at the place where headroom is most restricted. Keep the color scheme light in tone and hang a large mirror to give the feeling of more space. Another good tip it to install a hand wash basin that sits in a corner, so guests don't have to squeeze past it.
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.
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.
The geometric design of this bathroom shelf system is perfect for modern and contemporary spaces. Notice the color combo which matches the nuances featured by the bottom cabinet. If a bathroom wall shelf is meant to serve as a display surface for decorations, then it needs to be simple and to stand out as little as possible. After all, the focus needs to be on the items that you place on it. Diversity is a good strategy when you’re working with simple, materials, forms and colors. Consider shelves with different forms, sizes and styles for the bathroom if you want to create something that’s visually interesting but also simple. There are lots of different bathroom shelf ideas to choose from. This one seems to be perfect for the storage of towels. Not only that, but they also double as towel holders.
If you are pushed for space in your home’s smallest room, install some storage units on the wall above your toilet. Shelving units, placed one over the next, are the simplest idea. However, a simple closet, which you can close the door on, will hide away any untidiness. Sinks and basins, that are recessed into a counter top, are quite commonplace and look just as good in a kitchen as they do in the smallest room. However, if you have sufficient space, why not go for a product that is both a counter top and a basin in one, a sort of shelf sink. These units give a very clean line that is pleasing to the eye and are easy to keep clean.
