The key to using gold in a modern context is to focus on cutting-edge shapes. Look for items like waterfall faucets and minimalist shower controls in this finish. Also remember that when it comes to gold less is more. Use it as an accent in your design rather than a main component.
In most small bathrooms you either have a combination bathtub with the shower inside or you only have a shower. If your budget allows lose the shower curtain and add a glass door enclosure. Glass will create the illusion of a bigger bathroom and when you’re using the shower it will feel larger too. Consider using clear or lighter colored shower curtains if installing a glass door is not an option. If you have tall ceilings install the shower curtain at a higher head height to elongate the feeling of the room.
Fortunately a bathroom naturally lends itself to lots of texture. Start by anchoring the tub or shower with a plush rug or mat. Make sure the space includes multiple layers of soft towels. Top off the room with a few spa accessories such as fluffy robes to make it especially luxurious.
While these three may be the most common other natural elements can also help round out your bathroom design. Try to let as much natural light into the room as possible; if you have control over the home’s layout consider making the bathroom a room with a view. On a smaller scale try incorporating greenery into the space.
Once you have your storage options in place remember how the items are displayed is just as important as what’s available. Just as you would with any other styled surface do your best to create specific groupings. Vary the items in each grouping by height size and number to create visual interest.
