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.
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.
These molten blobs look as though they were captured mid-movement and attached to the wall. The sconces are by SKLO, a lighting company from the Czech Republic. Crafted from mouth-blown glass, each one is slightly different, adding to the artisan appeal. These fixtures are ideal for adding ambient light in the bathroom. Who needs a nightlight when you can use beautiful, stylish sconces to add a soft glow to the bathroom? This is the company‘s Twin Sconce, new for 2018, that was launched at ICFF in New York. For real drama in the bathroom, how about choosing a lighted glass vanity? This glass countertop has depth and interior texture, in addition to a cool blue light. While it certainly doesn‘t add enough light for tasks, it puts off a chic glow that is attention-getting and can serve as a low light source at night when you don’t want bright lights to ruin your sleep. Moreover, glass is smooth and easy to keep clean. We would love to have this in a smaller version for a really awesome powder room that would be the talk of the neighborhood.
