When you have little space to design in, a powder room’s pipe work may have to be on show. Boxing it in, to hide it, can take up valuable floor space. In such situations make a virtue of the necessity and accentuate what you would normally prefer to hide, like down pipes and waste pipes. Select brushed stainless steel faucet fixings and a towel rail that matches your basin’s waste pipe. Why not extend the idea and use metalwork for your basin, too? Chrome works well as an alternative to stainless steel. If your powder room is located under a stairwell it can be even more pushed for space than elsewhere. Don’t be put off a clear design ethos just because the ceiling may slope or because the room has an awkward corner to negotiate. Site the toilet at the place where headroom is most restricted. Keep the color scheme light in tone and hang a large mirror to give the feeling of more space. Another good tip it to install a hand wash basin that sits in a corner, so guests don’t have to squeeze past it.
Bathrooms don’t really stand out usually. They are often simple and feature neutral designs. But sometimes it’s nice to add an accent. In the case of the bathroom, that accent can be the sink. Whether it stands out with its color, shape, texture or design, the sink can become the focal point of the bathroom without much effort. Sometimes the best way to make something stand out is to go back to the basics and use simple materials in a unique way. For example, this stone vessel sink has a very interesting design. Its natural, organic shape along with the use of natural stone as the main material make this sink a wonderful accent feature for any bathroom.
Another reason why freestanding bathtubs are so appreciated is because of the large variety of materials used to build them. A stone bathtub is a very beautiful choice. It has a unique texture and usually rich colors. It would be a perfect centerpiece for the bathroom.
Most powder rooms will be short on space and have enough room for a toilet and wash hand basin only. Toilets don’t vary very much but by introducing a non-standard basin into your room’s design you can set the tone for the rest of the decor. If you find the right hand basin, that suits your tastes, it will be a good starting point for the rest of the design. White porcelain hand basins are perfectly fine, but they are ubiquitous. Consider another material instead. Wood, plastics and brushed metal are all very good alternatives. And if you decide that you want to stick to the classic porcelain basin, why not go for a more unusual shape to make it a bit more of a feature?
