Blue bathrooms are simply timeless, and they never fail to impress. But this winter, try out something beyond the usual and venture beyond the classic color duo of blue and white by bringing gray into the spectrum. Gray and blue as a combination is far more exciting and it presents you with a wide range of opportunities, as you can even add white as the third color in the room. Lighter shades of blue can also be used extensively, even as gray takes a backseat in these elegant bathrooms.
Does the idea of smartly folded towels placed next to the vanity or on floating shelves seem a touch too mundane? Then it is time to bring out the simple, yet incredibly effective towel hooks. Apart from the choice of the hooks themselves, you can even alter their placement and scatter them around the bathroom to create an interesting visual. Custom towel hooks or even homemade hooks can enhance the specific theme of the bathroom (say nautical, rustic or industrial). You can combine them with beautiful wall decals for an even more playful and colorful bathroom!
Think of the vanity, the medicine cabinet above, mirror and the shelves next to it as one large, single unit and plan accordingly. It is best to make sure that each of them complement the other visually and using pieces with same style and color definitely helps in reducing visual fragmentation of space in a small bathroom.
The soft, plush quality of new towels can be compromised by the over-use of laundry detergent. And fabric softener! Over time, these laundry substances build up on towels, causing them to stiffen. How do you strip away caked-on detergent?…
Maybe your bathroom already looks rustic and old-fashioned, but maybe it’s more on the modern side. Either way, a copper tub is a good choice! It will either perfectly match the rest of the rustic interior or be that one vintage element that feels like a soul of the room!
If the diagonal checkered pattern is too dynamic for you and you’d rather stay within the frame of classic and traditional, the straight monochrome checkered pattern could be the suitable alternative! The pattern feels old-fashioned, although versatile enough to be appropriate even in the bathrooms that are slightly leaning towards contemporary interior.
Small yellow accents in the gray bathroom such as a stylish stool or side table next to the bathtub in bright yellow, a gorgeous rug in mustard yellow, or even a shower curtain and a few towels in gold or canary yellow can make a huge visual impact. But you can take this a step further with a shower curtain or a tiled shower wall that ushers in bold stripes or even the chevron pattern. Instead of just blocks of yellow set against a gray backdrop, geometric shapes and even eclectic patterns can enhance the impact of yellow, even as the gray background keeps things uncluttered and urbane.
Of course, you will need a dashing sink for the bathroom vanity in copper to complement your beautiful bathtub and Farmhouse 30 is ideal in this regard. Even here you have polished nickel variants, in case you want a cooler metallic look in the contemporary bathroom. Maestro hammered copper sink is a bit more space-conscious and is ideal for the glamorous powder room or small bathroom while the likes of Cantina and Mojito grace the kitchen and home bar. It is time to fall in love with metal!
Most modern vanities offer a variety of options for those looking to create a curated towel display in the bathroom. It is the two part floating vanity that is without a doubt the most popular choice among homeowners in 2017. The space between the top and bottom unit allows you to display those fresh, folded towels in a simple, yet visually effective fashion. Since most of these units come in white or shades of gray, towels in bold orange, bright purple, navy blue or even sunny yellow tend to grab your attention straightaway. You can change the color of choice with changing seasons and trends to freshen up the bathroom.
