Use a glass enclosure at bathtub/shower area: Shower curtains can be used at your bathroom/shower but will separate your bathroom visually. Opt for a glass enclosure that creates a subtle and visual divider between your main area and your shower/tub. For added privacy many glass enclosures can have a frosted pattern applied to them to give privacy and not get in the way of your illusion of space.
Simply buy a normal framed mirror walk along the beach and pick up any pieces of worn driftwood which are oozing with character then glue the wood onto the frame. Also look for shabby chic white tongue and groove paneling and wicker accessories which’ll marry the design together.
Coastal touches will also be popular in 2014. Look for natural seaside accessories such as rocks shells and driftwood which will give the bathroom that natural beach feel. The design below is a great example of a driftwood mirror which can either be bought or made by yourself; that is if you have the time inclination and access to beach doodads of course.
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.
Visually opening up your bathroom: While the shower curtain is still a viable option for many glass door enclosures or no enclosure have become more upscale and enjoyed by many home owners. Here are the pros of cons:
The ultimate lapse of luxury an open custom built walk in shower with a huge plush monsoon like overhead shower. Where personal identity and individuality is a growing trend so are its effects which can be seen across different vertical markets not least the bathroom industry. Where cash is not a problem people are opting for custom solutions spa inspired and often ostentatious walk in showers. It’s a trend which has been around for a long time and it’s one that’ll continue to grow in 2014.
Raise the temperature in a black-and-white bathroom by adding warm metal fixtures and a glass mosaic tile floor in opalescent shades of gold. Use large textured tiles embossed with a pattern for rich texture that’s not overwhelming to the eye. For an especially cohesive space match floors shower enclosure and console counter in the same color and material.
You don’t have to incorporate every shade of the monochromatic rainbow. It’s possible to focus on creating an ultra-clean white space or to experiment with various hues of gray. Just mix up the space with a few different prints and patterns to keep the room from seeming too one-note.
Dare to be different. This is the message behind these bathroom products. These beautiful decorated faucets and lavatory basins with stunning patterns colors and textures are decorated with a special technique that creates raised ruby-like flowers and 24k gold tendrils make me feel like a king.
Natural isn’t wood exclusive either. Natural stone slate and other earthy materials are all viable options which means there is usually a natural option which’ll work for most designs. Worn rugged and spalted are the preferred choices however as long as it’s natural it’s likely to be in.
When dealing with a master suite personal style reigns supreme. Are you someone who prefers a claw-foot tub for long baths over a quick shower? Done. On this project though your goal is to appeal to the masses: your best friend your mother-in-law and everyone in between.
Opt for larger floor tile in a small bathroom: When selecting floor tile choose larger units and patterns that are subtle rather than busy. Less breaking up of the floor lines equates to less visual chopping with your eyes. Flooring should compliment your bathroom and by using small floor tile you will detract from your goal of enlarging the space.
A similar solution could be implemented into a living wall like this which should keep it looking lush and ravishing for time to come. We’re seeing these living walls drawn into more and more designs and expect this trend to continue in 2014.
