Perhaps your countertop could use a makeover too. Replacing the counter with a new one can often be an expensive project plus that would mean you’d have to make other changes around it as well and at the end of the day it’s just not worth it. On the other hand, simply change the look of the existing counter sounds like a more appealing option. Perhaps you’d like to try this faux marble countertop look. Spoiler alert: it’s actually concrete. If by chance there’s any space next to your toilet, you could fit this brass toilet paper holder in there. Well, the actual top holder is actually just a small part of this wooden organizer but you get the idea. There’s a compartment in there for the brush too so you don’t have to keep it on the floor anymore. Right now you should have a general idea of how you can decorate and personalize your bathroom on a budget and we hope you’ll try some of the projects we showed you here today. Remember that the finishing touches are important and that the little things matter.
Some types of tubs are better for cleaning while others are better suited for de-stressing, relaxation and meditation. Of course, that‘s not the only detail that can help you determine the size and shape of tub that you need. For example, if you have a large and spacious bathroom, chances are that the standard tub size won‘t really satisfy the design. Some tub can be just a little deeper than the standard kind and this makes them similar to Japanese soaking tubs which are taller and shorter than usual. Some modern freestanding tubs are hybrids between these two types.
The look of bathroom fixtures is also changing with the advent of new technologies. Unusual, architectural designs are more widely available. This one from Kohler looks like a modern line drawing, with the bulk of the fixture erased. It’s an intriguing design that still has plenty of water flowing from the tap, just as an ordinary faucet does. designs like this allow homeowners to be more creative in coming up with a bathroom design that expresses their personalities and adding interest to this hardworking space. Freestanding bathtubs have been all the rage in recent years, replacing the mammoth built-in jacuzzi tubs of decades past. Now, within the freestanding category, there are different types available. This new model from Villeroy & Boch sits on a chrome base, lifting the height of the tub and lightening up its footprint in the bathroom design. Similarly, the wall mounted toilet, where the tank and plumbing are secreted within the wall, is a streamline option. Even if space is plentiful, the wall-mounted toilet is a sleeker option than one with a hulking tank attached.
Marble may be a standard material for bathrooms, but it is showing up on more surfaces than just the vanity top and tub. It is being used to accent other surfaces, such the front of cabinetry and for accessories. Here, the Assolo Collection from Artelinea of Florence features cabinets that can have a marble face, while the surface of the unit is a different material. Among the bathroom trends, this is a very chic one as marble is equated with style and luxury. Until the new floating style of vanity showed up on the design scene, most bathroom cabinetry was large and hulking, sitting heavily on the floor. Now, mid-century modern style is creeping into the bathroom, yielding vanities and cupboards that sport modern and chic legs. Looking a lot like pieces that would be at home in a living room, these can hold your sink and all the bathroom necessities. Moreover, this Dama vanity from Artelinea has a glass-like Dualite top, which can be done in different colors to match the bathroom's decor. We think its one of the more stylish bathroom trends.
It’s not hard to spot a luxury bathroom. You basically know it when you see it, even if you don’t really know what are the elements that make a bathroom look luxurious and sophisticated in the first place. Every time it's different and every time it's a special set of design characteristics and elements that fulfill the role of focal points for the space. But enough theory and philosophizing for now. Let's have a look at some specific luxury bathrooms to see what makes them special. A marble bathroom has a lot of potential for looking sophisticated and luxurious regardless of the style. Of course, how much marble is in a bathroom is up to the designer to decide. Antolini offers some really amazing examples in this case, like this one for instance. For a lot of the luxury bathrooms designed by Antolini it's basically marble everywhere: on the floor, the walls, the counters and in the shower. You'd think such a simple design approach would result in a rather boring or perhaps overwhelming decor but the key here is finding the right balance between all these surfaces and all the patterns, colors and types of marble involved in the project.
