Bathroom design is very important and should be done carefully because it serves a place for relaxation to your body. Therefore, it needs to have somewhat relaxing, soothing, and calming atmospheres to better make the relaxation takes place. Rejuvenate yourself with this Villeroy & Boch’s Memento Collection focusing on details in your bathroom. Choose sleek as main design and thus you can fill up the place with modern and contemporary furniture with unique details and also patterns.
Bathroom Design Defined
When you are making bathroom design plans, do not exaggerate it too much but just remember to use and give more attention into details, instead of using many décor. The theme Memento means to use surface–mounted washbasins, wood counter, floating cabinets, mirror, and shining light bulbs. All of these items comprise the sink area. The white porcelain and elegant pattern of washbasin is the focal point of this bathroom design. To accentuate the sleek style, you need to use metallic silver faucets.
Details of Bathroom Design
Sleek bathroom design will mean to use white colors in any furnishings and décor. Or, other option is to choose neutral colors but with gleaming effect. Take a look at the details in walls, floor, and ceiling this bathroom design has. Even though white tiles are used, but good–looking patterned rug is chosen to roll out above it. Walls are also made of tiles but they are different in colors according to the area, whereas ceiling is neutral also but with shiny lights. Read more »
Many bathroom shelving units also come with hooks underneath to double as a towel rack as well as a place to hold things. Other forms of bathroom storage furniture consist of corner racks, free standing cabinets, and back of the door hanging systems. Corner rack units are perfect for holding bath toys, towels, or even toiletries; in such as small space as the bathroom, making use of the corner space can provide a lot of room to hold things. Free standing cabinets are also another option for a bathroom. You can find many different options of cabinetry at your local home improvement store; small standalone cabinets are specially made for bathrooms to be able to hold a lot of items in such a small space. Another space in your bathroom that can offer a lot of storage is the back of the bathroom door. This space can be used to hang hooks or over the door towel racks that will increase that available area to hang towels while also not making your bathroom over crowded.
Another storage option is the use of baskets; baskets can hold toiletries, towels, or bath toys, and they can be placed under the sink or out in the open on the floor. Baskets can act as a bathroom organizer, holding a large amount of items and reducing the clutter in the room. Baskets can come in many different size, shapes, colors, and materials, offering a decorative touch to the room while also offering organization. Whether you have a large or small bathroom, there are many different options for bathroom storage. While vanity cabinets are often the most popular items in a bathroom, other units can be used to reduce the clutter in a bathroom and offer a space to place items for organization.
One room that a lot of time is spent in is the bathroom; hours are spent in there pampering, cleaning, and relaxing, so when renovating your bathroom design ideas, take a lot of care and attention should be put into it to make it beautiful and inviting. It is easy to create a modern bathroom by simply adding updated fixtures and making it look more spacious and neat. A great way to give the room a modern feel is to use wall mounted bathroom cabinets allowing a decorative style and look while also ensuring a great way to store all bath items. Another option would be to use attractive vanity furniture sets that have a sleek feel but are very functional. You can add to the cabinets or vanity, stylish metal fixtures that will accentuate the vanity and keep with the simple monochromatic design using sleek metals.
Bathroom Design Ideas
When choosing cabinets or mirrors for modern and contemporary bathroom design styles it is important to make sure that the shapes of the counter tops, mirror, windows, and any other large piece in the bathroom match each other and have simple and clean lines. Ovals or straight lines often allow for a clean bold look to the room, with ovals adding a more subtle harmonious look. You want to be sure that which ever shape you choose, the lines match; for instance if you choose a rectangular countertop you will want to have a square or rectangular sink as well as mirror, and shower or bathtub. These matching lines will be more aesthetically pleasing and keep with the modern feel. Another important aspect of a modern bathroom is the light fixtures that are used; you want to ensure that the small bathroom area is well lit so that it can be very functional.
Dispensing with a typical shower enclosure and sloping the floor to direct water to the drain creates a bathroom with clean, modern lines that can be made accessible. In the bathroom shown here, the shower area is located as far from the room entrance as possible. Placement of the sink and the toilet is crucial. If fixtures are less than 12 in. from the shower’s spray area or if you want to keep an area dry, temperedglass splash walls can shield fixtures as well as doorways from spraying water. A splash wall needs to be only as high as the showerhead and as deep as the fixture it’s protecting. I try to keep the splash wall a minimum of 16 in. from the centerline of the toilet, and at least 3 in. from the edge of a sink. Near doorways, I make the splash wall as deep as the door is wide.
Have you ever noticed how pulling the shower curtain back in a small bathroom gives the room a lift? It’s like turning on a light after a long blackout. More and more designers these days are ditching shower curtains and traditional shower doors in favor of wet areas with floor drains. It’s like leaving the light on without burning a bulb. Here are four of our favorites.
Wide-Open Baths for Small Spaces
There were lots of things to like about the 1970s-era house that Mick and Sally Singer bought, but the master bath wasn’t one of them. It was divided in two parts separated by a solid pocket door, and they had to walk through the lavatory half to get to the bedroom. To top it off, it was carpeted—a mold bomb in waiting. Read more »
This bathroom was constrained by bedrooms on either side, so it wasn’t possible to increase square footage. To make the space feel roomier, white marble tile and several mirrored surfaces wrap the room. Floor-to-ceiling cabinets add height, while a glass shower wall eliminates the visual barrier of a shower curtain or doors. Rich wood tones add warmth and create balance.
A turn-of-the-century sideboard was rejuvenated with a few coats of creamy white paint and converted into a vanity to become the focal point of this quaint bathroom. A modern-day interpretation of toile wallpaper wraps the walls in further historical charm.
An old dresser repurposed as a vanity and a vintage apothecary cabinet used for storage and display space adds authentic yesteryear charm to this bathroom. The bathroom also exudes cottage style, thanks to a palette of white, beaded board walls and a beautiful clawfoot bathtub.
Bathroom cabinets that resemble furniture are right at home in the French bathroom. In France, it is typical to repurpose furniture from other areas of the home into the bathroom to serve as vanities, washstands or storage cabinets.
