Floating shelves are, as we already mentioned on numerous occasions, extremely practical not just in bathrooms but also in pretty much any room of the house. You can see here a series of glass shelves complemented by a matching side table and an entire wall unit with open storage and display modules. It’s one of the designs proposed by Laufen. The bathroom shower plays its own role in giving this space a totally unique and interesting look. The Horizontal Shower is perhaps the most unconventional one of all. As the name suggests, you have to lie down horizontally when using it as opposed to standing up like you’d expect in most cases. A wall-hung toilet can offer many advantages such as easy cleaning and maintenance, a more open and spacious look and even a more refined and sophisticated appearance. In the case of luxury bathrooms like this one from Ceramica Flaminia this detail also helps to put an emphasis on the beauty of the marble floor.
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.
Wallpaper is also pretty inexpensive and there are certain types specifically designed for bathrooms. Use wallpaper to give the bathroom an accent wall or to introduce a beautiful color into the space without making changes to your furniture, flooring or other elements in the room. Or how about this idea:you put wallpaper on a wall and you paint over the bottom half of the wall. This way you could play with contrasting or complementary colors and you can give your bathroom a truly original and memorable appearance. Don`t underestimate the visual impact that neutrals and subtle color tones can have on the interior design and decor of a space, especially a small one. You may think that a light gray bathroom floor and wall finish wouldn’t exactly look cool but always remember to look at the big picture and to take into consideration all the little things as well.
Some of the things we mention in this article are fun to have around while others are items that everyone has in their bathroom in one form or another, such as the bathroom rug. Most rugs or mats are plain and boring so if you want one that`s also funky you either have to be lucky finding one in a store or you have to craft yourself. We`re big fans of the latter so here`s one of our favorite DIY bathroom rugs. It`s made of pom-poms and was featured on mallooknits. Open shelves are great in the bathroom because they don’t take much space, they can be installed anywhere and they’re easy to put together which makes them great DIY projects. We have a funky examples for you to take a look at. It’s a project from heylilahey and it shows you how you can use copper pipes an fittings plus some wooden boards to build a shelving unit for your bathroom.
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.
