With growing worldwide urbanisation, there will be an ever increasing focus on developing eco-friendly products and solutions: specifically, resource areas such as water, electricity and waste management will be of prime concern to government agencies and businesses. In order to compete—not just economically but with a view to addressing environmental concerns and sustainability—companies need to think about smart technologies and eco design. Using current trends in bathroom equipment, Noken is able to anticipate the likely designs of the future and in particular, the importance of efficiency and sustainability.

Let 's wrap up, shall we? As you probably noticed, the bathroom design ideas featured at The Land of Nod were a big inspiration for today 's post.

Green and gray is a less common combination in the bathroom (or for that matter, in any room of the house), and it is hard to pull off unless you get the balance absolutely right. You might want to stay away from very dark shades of green when combining it with gray in the bathroom, as it can create a dull and at times garish atmosphere. Lighter tones of gray combine with lime green and olive green, with a matte finish working well in classic, Victorian and shabby chic style bathrooms, while contemporary bathrooms in gray benefit from simple pops of green.
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.
