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.
Also with square, shallow basins, but with more traditional cabinetry is this bathroom design from Duravit. The Brioso wall mounted vanity is a lighter look because the bulk does not sit directly on the floor. This one features drawers, but other styles also have cabinets instead if that‘s a preference. The streamlined look also features wall-mounted fixtures, which free up valuable space on the vanity for placing bathroom necessities. Another innovation for bathrooms is a mirror that has built-in lighting, both embedded in the surface as well as incorporated behind the unit. This gives great task lighting for the mirror and ambient light. This similar, slim-line design is ideal for bathrooms that don’t have a great deal of space. From COMAD, a company based in Poland, these pieces are from the Bali Collection and feature a silhouette that is common across a number of their collections. The vanity sits on the floor but looks more like furniture because of the legs. The side cabinet is a great solution: When storage space is at a premium, go for the vertical. This closed cabinet is stylish and allows you to stash your jumble of bathroom goods behind closed doors, keeping the look clean and uncluttered.
Among all the bathrooms trends, this is one that gives your space a much larger feel. Attaching the vanity to the wall makes it appear to float, which opens up floor space, giving the room an airy feel. Combine that with a mirror that features backlighting and the effect is magnified. Anytime you add lighting to the mirror, it emphasizes the element and adds soft illumination. As bathrooms increasingly become about more than just personal hygiene, comfort takes the forefront as a big consideration. Adding a comfortable chair to the space is another one of the hot bathroom trends. Here, Arlex has installed a modern chair that also adds a bright pop of color to the spa-like room. It’s ideal for relaxing or for taking a seat while getting ready.
What about tiny shower windows? Well, that`s an option too. Check out this intriguing bathroom layout featured on marydewaltdesigngroup. The shower is positioned in the corner, framing the tub which gives the room a pretty symmetrical look. There are four tiny windows in the shower, high enough to maintain privacy. When it comes down to choosing an option, the decision should be made in relation to the unique particularities of the bathroom and the shower. That being said, it`s possible to combine two or more of the ideas we just presented, much like in the case of this stylish bathroom which has a direct connection to a garden and a set of clerestory windows.
Pedestal sinks have been around for a long time, but they are steadily becoming one of the new bathroom trends. These types of sinks are ideal for small bathrooms, powder rooms or larger bathrooms where you want to make a style statement. Designers are creating styles that are as much sculpture as they are sinks, like these from Antonio Lupi. The overarching theme of wellness is part of many current bathroom trends, so it is fitting that Scavolini has melded the bathroom space with the gym space. Designed by Mattia Pareschi, the Bagno Gym Space is large and open. It includes all the typical bathroom fixtures, along with everything that a home gym should have: Gym equipment, benches, elastic fitness bands, and TRX equipment. The cabinetry is available in this neutral anthracite finish, or in a natural wood for greater warmth.
