Finding a balance between black and white in the powder room can be a tricky affair at the best of times, and a good segue between the two is to use the different shades of gray on offer. Gray is undoubtedly the hot neutral of this decade, and its ‘power’ only seems to grow with each passing season. Giving the powder room a gray tint while embracing the black and white look is a great way to combine both trendy and timeless elements in a seamless fashion.
This one is a bit trickier than others, and if you are not really the most organized person around, it might be tricky to pull off. Open vanities are currently a hot trend, and they do appear lovely in those picture-perfect bathrooms with neatly folded and stacked towels on display. Open vanities also give a small bathroom or powder room a spacious visual appeal and help in fashioning a clutter-free environment. All that is of course only true if you do not have a ton of items from hair dryers to a lineup of beauty products to tuck away! If you have enough shelf space elsewhere though, the open vanity is a welcome addition.
For those who are still unsure about how to craft a dream powder room, one of the best ways to start is by looking for a style that is distinctive, striking, beautiful and completely different from the rest of the home. This turns the small powder room into a delightful escape that is unlike anything else in the house, and Victorian splendor perfectly fits this billing. The style not only brings pomp and the ‘wow factor’, but it also promises other great powder room essentials like walls that come alive with either textural beauty or splashes of color and ornate fittings that add to the oomph.
If we have to sum up the direction of current bathroom design trends in a single statement, then it would be “a desire among homeowners to find a relaxing, revitalizing and nature-centric retreat at home”. Timber definitely fits this billing, and it has made a grand comeback in 2015. Incorporating wood into the bathroom is no longer a taxing affair that keeps you constantly on the edge because you are perpetually worried about damage from moisture and infestation. Contemporary solutions even provide space for cheaper and eco-friendly reclaimed wood accent features that will serve you well for years to come.
