How smart is it to give an already ‘limited’ room a color scheme anchored in black and white? The answer to that question would be ‘very smart’ if you can get the balance between the two hues right and the lighting spot on. No matter what color you use in the powder room poor lighting can give this small space a dark and dreary look. This could very well start you off on a cycle of constant redecorating and repainting without ever realizing that the real issue at hand is poor lighting. A sparkling chandelier coupled with clever ambient lighting is the ideal way forward in the black and white powder room.
While the beauty of tropical style seems all too obvious as summer arrives Scandinavian-style bathrooms look great in every season all year long! You really do not have to worry about a style change once winter knocks on the door with this one. Light-filled airy and relaxing Scandinavian bathrooms draped in neutral hues feel cozy and refreshing even during the colder months and you can combine this style with rustic elements midcentury vanities or even a hint of Victorian glam to create a unique bathroom style of your own.
The perception that wallpaper in the powder room is only useful when you want to usher in bold pattern and bright colors is pretty far off from reality. Even those wanting a stylish and sophisticated black and white backdrop for the powder room can use wallpaper that brings plenty of pattern and personality to the limited space without actually disturbing the color scheme. Whether it is simple stripes or playful patterns inspired by the sights and sounds of nature wallpaper in black and white is as much of a showstopper as those in striking shades.
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.
While Progetto largely relies on its wonderful and sleek floating vanities to set the tone in the bathroom you can complement them with a smart series of modular shelves open units and cabinets to fashion the bathroom of your dreams. Each composition offers rich visual and textural beauty and is available in a wide range of finishes that usher in trendy hues and imaginative design. Their modular features ensure that you can alter and custom-craft a bathroom to fit in perfectly with the space on offer even as the boring old bathroom is instantly transformed into a chic and inviting space.
Placing a glass shower into a monochrome bathroom will open up the space even more making it brighter and more transparent. If you feel like extending the checkered pattern beyond the flooring add some to the walls as well and play with mixing the diagonal and straight checkerboard tiles.
