As with any other room of your home, designing a stylish and eye-catching bathroom requires careful planning and attention to the tint details that go on to make a big difference. A vanity plays a big part in shaping this ambiance and choosing the right vanity is as much about color and finish as it is about size and style. While a bathroom vanity in white or wood seem like the ‘safe choice ', something much darker can make a bigger visual impact in your polished, contemporary bathroom. With spa-inspired bathrooms and those in neutral hues currently dominating the trends chart, a black vanity makes plenty of decorating sense.
Let 's start with a few basics. Whether you have ample cabinet space or everything is out in the open, creating a storage system is key. If everything has its place, you can keep clutter in check when guests visit, and if need be, you can even pack away certain items (such as bath toys) by quickly moving a storage container. From corralling toys to containing laundry, large baskets are never a bad idea.
Imagine dipping your hand into a warm, silky, flowing stream. Visualise walking barefoot in a gently babbling brook. Picture lying in a beautiful, clear pool, the water softly cascading around you. Each of these imagined scenarios underpin the design of Vitae, a recent bathroom concept from Noken, developed in collaboration with Zaha Hadid Design. This revolutionary bathroom collection is striking in its form and presentation, with integral components that evoke images of Zaha Hadid 's dramatic architecture. In truth, Vitae offers the perfect refuge and escape from life 's everyday demands.
Checkered patterns don 't all look the same; we 've proved this much! Even within the (what seems like narrow) limits of the popular monochrome pattern, you have the opportunity to decide whether you want a darker or brighter pattern, a bigger or smaller one!
We already talked about how the material you choose for the black vanity can define the style of your bathroom. Take this a step further by carefully selecting the finish of the vanity and the fixtures and accessories around it. Beyond the glossy lacquered and matte finishes, think of the material used for vanity handles, sink, countertop and the bathroom fixtures. A dark vanity with white marble countertop is a hot favorite among homeowners and those who love warm metallic glint can throw in brass handles and bathroom fitting. If you prefer cooler metallics, then chrome handles and fittings are the way to go.
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!
