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.
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.
In a way, the tub is the bathroom equivalent of the bed, being the largest fixture in the room and most often a must-have. That being said, turning the tub into a focal point seems like a wonderful idea, especially in the case of a luxury bathroom where you have options such as the Koi bathtub. It has an aged brushed brass base and a beautiful patina. The exterior is decorated with scales reminiscent of the Japanese Koi carp. Looking at some of these products you're probably imagining that the remodel cost of a luxury bathroom would be very high. While that can definitely be true in some cases, it’s not necessarily a general rule. It’s possible to keep the cost low by focusing on some of the small pieces, the accessories such as the wall mirror or the sconces. Here, for example, you can see the Bronx mirror displayed above a Diamond vanity, complemented by two Burj wall lamps. Perhaps you could find your own winning combo.
