Adequate lighting is another element that really makes or breaks the bathroom’’s functionality as well as safety. The best bathroom layouts include a blend of four types of light: task, ambient, accent, and decorative. Lighting should happen from the ceiling, from the walls, in the bathing zone, and wherever else improves the use and safety of the space. While powder rooms provide an excellent clean slate to really make a statement and a splash, design-wise, in your home, most bathrooms will be best received when they make sense with the design of the rest of your home. Colors don’t need to necessarily match, but they should flow to make the bathroom layout an appropriate part of the bigger whole. Hardware, such as the bathroom doorknobs, and other features, such as the doorframe and/or bathroom door color facing the rest of the house, should be consistent with whatever is in the style of the home elsewhere.
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.
Once upon a time, pendants were relegated mainly to the kitchen and dining room, but no longer. These fixtures are a great way to add illumination in the bathroom. This DXV bathroom design uses two pendants to flank the mirror, much as sconces would, adding light to the vanity area. They can also be used without the backlight of the mirror to provide moodier lighting. Also, take note that they are sleek and minimal, not fussy. This makes them perfect for a variety of bathroom styles. Pendants can also be used over the vanity in a more traditional arrangement. This bathroom design puts the fixtures off center over the expanse of countertop, where light is most needed. The large, exposed bulb styles are a novel thing to use on the bathroom, but they add a bit of an eclectic touch to an otherwise modern and minimalist bathroom vanity set. They are also a bright counterpart to the backlighting of the mirror, which is becoming more common in today’s bathroom lighting schemes. Of course, pendant lighting is not limited to the bare-bulb style. Add some luxurious warmth to the bathroom by choosing a pendant like Fin, by Original BTC from the UK. This pendant is made from bone china formed into an organic shape that has a really appealing glow when lit. Any style of pendant can be used in the bathroom, from global and organic to modern or industrial. The main idea is to throw out any preconceived notions of what bathroom lighting should be and instead opt for fixtures that are functional and achieve the look you want.
