Another detail that might just convince you to get rid of your old mirror and to get a backlit one is the fact that the light it offers is very similar to natural light and superior to other types. The clear and pure light is flattering and easy on the eyes, looking very natural in the room. Also, the LED strips last longer than any light bulb so you don‘t need to worry about having to replace them any time soon. In fact, it`s more likely to get a new mirror by the time you may have to deal with this detail.
To get the vintage rest room look, use an old piece of bedroom furniture. A distressed and antique looking chest of drawers makes for a great powder room storage unit. Either cut the back away so you can run pipe work through it or cut a hole in the top to recess your wash basin. Another classic counter top look, that evokes vintage charm, is to opt for a slab of marble, set against decorative tiling. It is not for everyone, but a cozy rest room is made into an inviting place by giving it the additional function of an occasional library. A single shelf with a couple of magazines and easy reading books is enough, but if you like the idea, why not make it a mini reading room?
If you like the idea of a wet room but still want a traditional sort of bathroom, go for a partition system. This will afford you the best of both worlds. By installing a glazed partition you can create two distinct zones. One will be for bathing and showering and the other can remain dry. After all, if you simply want to use the toilet a wet room that has been recently used to shower in can sometimes be unappealingly wet. Make over your bathroom so that you have two areas, one dry one wet, but both sympathetically decorated to create a unified look. An on trend look for modern bathrooms is to expose the brickwork. Why hide all the surfaces under tiling, especially if the room is large enough that you can avoid splashing. This look is especially great in apartments but will also work well in regular homes. Keep your shower away from the exposed walls, and use an enclosure so that your brickwork does not become stained.
If you are pushed for space in your home’s smallest room, install some storage units on the wall above your toilet. Shelving units, placed one over the next, are the simplest idea. However, a simple closet, which you can close the door on, will hide away any untidiness. Sinks and basins, that are recessed into a counter top, are quite commonplace and look just as good in a kitchen as they do in the smallest room. However, if you have sufficient space, why not go for a product that is both a counter top and a basin in one, a sort of shelf sink. These units give a very clean line that is pleasing to the eye and are easy to keep clean.
Every bathroom is different and has its own layout and placement of the fixtures so it’s up to you to figure out where the best place for a shelf would be. Consider an open area under the sink or a niche in the shower. A lot of combination between open and closed storage can be created in the bathroom. Most contemporary bathroom vanities play with this combination and the results can be really exquisite. Storage diversity is important even when the space is small such as in this case. Instead of overwhelming it with large and robust furniture, a more open design is preferred. Towel shelves in the bathroom are a great idea. Just make sure you keep them close at hand and that usually means under the sink or close to the shower enclosure.
