Pedestal sinks have been around for a long time, but they are steadily becoming one of the new bathroom trends. These types of sinks are ideal for small bathrooms, powder rooms or larger bathrooms where you want to make a style statement. Designers are creating styles that are as much sculpture as they are sinks, like these from Antonio Lupi. The overarching theme of wellness is part of many current bathroom trends, so it is fitting that Scavolini has melded the bathroom space with the gym space. Designed by Mattia Pareschi, the Bagno Gym Space is large and open. It includes all the typical bathroom fixtures, along with everything that a home gym should have: Gym equipment, benches, elastic fitness bands, and TRX equipment. The cabinetry is available in this neutral anthracite finish, or in a natural wood for greater warmth.
When it`s time for a bathroom renovation, think beyond the sink because there are all sorts of new bathroom designs to choose from. Long gone are the days when you were limited to a slab of countertop with a standard drop-in sink. Manufacturers have launched new styles that are more like furniture. From compact models that make the most of a small bathroom stylishly to larger sets that celebrate hardware and elevate plumbing to a chic element, the choices are endless. If you haven’t browsed bathroom designs recently, you‘ll be in for a surprise. With a chic industrial twist, the Elemental Collection from Stone Forest offers flexible and stylish options for a bathroom vanity. This is the double vanity, which is an outstanding example of the mixed materials trend. Instead of sticking with a matchy palette based on a single material, the contemporary stylish look comes from the artful mixture of stone basins, wood cabinetry, steel components and brass legs. The vanity can incorporate different finishes and is has unlimited opportunities for customization and additional components. The sinks are also wide and shallow, which is one of the most popular basin forms in new sink designs.
While a successfully functional kitchen utilizes the primary work triangle, the bathroom doesn’t typically have a one-size-fits-all functional layout. There are zones of functionality to consider, though, within any bathroom, which will play a role in determining the best bathroom layout for your space. While the functionality of most bathrooms tends to revolve around the toilet, you most likely don't want the actual design layout of the bathroom to emphasize this fact or feature. As far as the preferred layout of the toilet, the most common design decision, space permitting, is to tuck it away or even hide it somewhere, either behind a door or a half wall or the vanity. Visually, the more you can remove the focus of the bathroom from this fixture, the more aesthetic the bathroom will look and feel.
Also with square, shallow basins, but with more traditional cabinetry is this bathroom design from Duravit. The Brioso wall mounted vanity is a lighter look because the bulk does not sit directly on the floor. This one features drawers, but other styles also have cabinets instead if that‘s a preference. The streamlined look also features wall-mounted fixtures, which free up valuable space on the vanity for placing bathroom necessities. Another innovation for bathrooms is a mirror that has built-in lighting, both embedded in the surface as well as incorporated behind the unit. This gives great task lighting for the mirror and ambient light. This similar, slim-line design is ideal for bathrooms that don’t have a great deal of space. From COMAD, a company based in Poland, these pieces are from the Bali Collection and feature a silhouette that is common across a number of their collections. The vanity sits on the floor but looks more like furniture because of the legs. The side cabinet is a great solution: When storage space is at a premium, go for the vertical. This closed cabinet is stylish and allows you to stash your jumble of bathroom goods behind closed doors, keeping the look clean and uncluttered.
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.
