Even though most people associate yellow and gray with styles that are strictly ‘modern ', that is far from the truth. Gray and yellow can work equally well in bathrooms that range from styles such as eclectic and farmhouse to minimal and industrial! Those wanting to usher in a farmhouse, rustic, eclectic or even traditional style can use yellow in a far more exuberant and energetic fashion than homeowners seeking to shape a serene, contemporary bathroom. A balance between two lighter hues of gray and yellow is also a great way to create a polished, modern bathroom that looks even more splendid when filled with ample natural light.
One of the biggest reasons for the revival of yellow and gray as a hot color combination is undoubtedly the ascent of gray to top of the hottest neutrals chart. With the popularity of gray only increasing with each passing season (if that is even possible at this point of time), it is only natural that homeowners are looking for ways in which they can enliven their dashing modern bathroom in gray. And yellow offers the perfect solution in this regard.
Apart from offering textural contrast inside the modern bathroom, a live-edge vanity top can also be a smart space saver when placed in the corner of a tiny powder room where every inch matters. Since you do not need too much storage or even counter space, a small slab of wood will do the trick, and combined with the right sink and plumbing, you can create a wide range of styles that vary from industrial to rustic. Sconce lighting next to the mirror or a simple pendant light along with the frame of the mirror used in the powder room can define this style and reinforce it with ease.
Despite having to shop for décor and vanity that saves space, one does not really have to forego their ‘style ambitions ' for the bathroom. A small art deco style vanity in the corner can be a big hit and give your bathroom an alternative look that takes it away from the mundane. These ornate, slim and at times sculptural pedestal sinks and modest vanities can help in completely reimagining the bathroom space. Those who prefer a more ‘organic ' vibe can opt for the natural wood look while ones seeking a bit more glitz and glam can consider shopping for a vanity with mirrored finish and Hollywood Regency style. The choices are well and truly endless!
The past few seasons have seen plenty of attention being showered on gray and its many shades. When it comes to neutrals, nothing currently beats the charisma and popularity of gray. This obviously means more and more of us are starting to use the color in places where white was otherwise the gold standard. Contemporary bathrooms present one such setting, and instead of the simple white backdrop, homeowners are now starting to experiment with gray at its diverse best. While this is a great idea on many levels, a bathroom devoid of all color can quickly seem drab and boring. Today, we intend to drive out this boredom with some colorful zest!
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.
