Traditionally choosing furniture for a modern space meant staying within the Art Deco Shaker or Mission styles. More recently Scandinavian-inspired products have also been included in this category. Whichever design your bathroom furnishings are try to ensure that they are as simplistic as possible and have a clearly defined shape.
Pair paneled walls with chrome fixtures and black-and-white floors in a circle star pattern for a look that’s as fresh as it is versatile. Banish boring with complementary colors and patterns like these mauve coral and dark burgundy tiles.
Curvy works well with curvy so if going down this route create a continuity within the bathroom. This’ll not only help create a sense of balance but it can also help with space as curved cabinets can be squeezed into tight spaces with taste without looking cramped and forced.
Adjustable lighting will create a multifunctional bathroom: When a space is limited to only one function it can feel smaller than it is. For example if you only have one overhead light in the bathroom you will find only utilitarian tasks to occupy your time and then leave. Add a dimmer switch to that same lighting fixture and now you can get ready for work in the morning and in the evening relax in the tub or shower. Your small bathroom just got a lot larger!
In you follow design trends closely you’ll have noticed that copper has been popping its head up left right and center. In the bathroom industrial copper based designs are in where extravagant copper pipes are showcased as features. Copper baths featured in a more traditional setting are making wider inroads in 2014 closely embraced by the dauntless and audacious designers amongst us.
Dark colors will make the room feel smaller and lighter colors will make the room feel larger. If you have the luxury of having natural light pour into your bathroom it will feel much bigger. Mimic the feeling of natural light with neutral and sunny tones that feel warm and inviting. Change your light bulbs to ones that emit a warmer glow. Light bulbs play a huge role in how you see yourself in the mirror. You will hate using the bathroom if you hate how you look in the mirror!
