Other changes can include using rugs instead of bathroom mats in order to give the space a more elegant look and to also add some pattern and color to the space. Contrasting textures would also have a similar effect on a bathroom‘s decor so consider mixing and matching various materials and finishes. And speaking of materials, marble is a popular option for a lot of high-end bathrooms and kitchens so consider it as one of your primary materials. You can use marble in combination with other natural stone accents for a welcoming and peaceful ambiance. The overall ambiance is very important in a bathroom. Let‘s say you want yours to create a resort-like feel or to have a spa-inspired look. In such a case you should consider using natural materials and simple finishes combined with green accents. Perhaps you could put some plants in the room or have some gravel or small stones on the floor, under the vanity or around the tub. It would also help to have a spacious bathroom with large windows. You can use dividers to separate the areas. Another cool thing you could include in the design is an accent wall which could be a waterfall or which could be made of rain glass or decorated with crystal beads.
Native Trails also showed their Avalon 62 tub that looks like concrete, but is actually a mix of natural jute fiber and cement known as Native Stone. The thick shell ensures that a hot soak will last a long time. Produits Neptune featured a number of colored tubs for those who want to add a bold touch to the bathroom. This red one is marvelous. Zitta made their elegant Evora tub even more appealing with a luminous silver finish on the outside. The tub — made for two — is acrylic and has a shape that provides a number of installation options. Vanico Maronyx showed their Taiga tub, said to have been inspired by the lakes of Quebec, Canada. Made for one or two people, it includes a backrest that is comfortable for sitting in the tub and reading. The wood feature on one side is an interesting detail.
LED lights are very energy-efficient and also more environmentally-friendly so in case this was a concern, you can add this fact to the list of advantages. Then there‘s also the issue of the glass itself. It seems that the glass used for making backlit mirror is of a higher quality than the ordinary kind. There’s definitely a difference between a traditional mirror and a more modern, backlit kind. In terms of style, there are a few things worth mentioning here. A backlit mirror will inevitably become a focal point for the space it`s placed in, usually the bathroom. In a way, that means it doesn’t have to feature an ornate frame, an interesting shape or any other detail because the light will frame it perfectly, allowing it to stand out in a glamorous way.
When you have little space to design in, a powder room’s pipe work may have to be on show. Boxing it in, to hide it, can take up valuable floor space. In such situations make a virtue of the necessity and accentuate what you would normally prefer to hide, like down pipes and waste pipes. Select brushed stainless steel faucet fixings and a towel rail that matches your basin’s waste pipe. Why not extend the idea and use metalwork for your basin, too? Chrome works well as an alternative to stainless steel. If your powder room is located under a stairwell it can be even more pushed for space than elsewhere. Don’t be put off a clear design ethos just because the ceiling may slope or because the room has an awkward corner to negotiate. Site the toilet at the place where headroom is most restricted. Keep the color scheme light in tone and hang a large mirror to give the feeling of more space. Another good tip it to install a hand wash basin that sits in a corner, so guests don't have to squeeze past it.
Freestanding bathtubs are also a more modern alternative for traditional designs. They have beautiful lean lines and it floats nicely in the space. Also, there`s something about the simplicity of their shape that makes them look very delicate and more sophisticated. After all, the tub is like a piece of furniture. It has to match the decor and if you love it you just have to have it.
