Backsplash Solutions Let‘s start with some backsplash action! We recently featured the kitchen below in our DIY backsplash post, but we just had to highlight it again. Because sometimes a little bit of paint is all it takes to completely transform your space. See more of Laura‘s eye-catching painted backsplash at A Beautiful Mess:
The true beauty of rectangular vessel sinks lies in their ability to adapt to the space that they are placed in and infuse it with a classic look. The white color certainly helps with that, as it doesn’t always have to dominate the space - sometimes it’s simply enough to reflect the rest of the interior or balance out the neutral shades with its brightness. If you are worried about your bathroom becoming too dim, a white rectangular vessel sink is a great element of lightness.
Platinum House is a residence in Tokyo, Japan designed by Atelier Spinoza. The narrow shape of the lot meant they needed to design up, but the interior doesn't just showcase that main goal: maximizing vertical space. The architects were able to achieve an interior that feels spacious by letting natural light flood every single room of the three-story building.
Aside from pulling the curtains closed for privacy, there are other benefits to having window treatments. This includes controlling the amount of light in your home, and adding an additional layer of insulation for your home — which reduces energy bills all year long.
We are always on the lookout for ways in which we can maximize space without giving up on either style or functionality. When it comes to contemporary bathrooms, it is the vanity and the sink with the mirror above that end up defining both the aesthetics of the space and its final style. The floating vanity is undoubtedly the most popular choice among homeowners as it allows one to create a sense of spaciousness visually without sacrificing practicality. But what if you could take this space-savvy goodness a notch higher with corner vanities and smart decor that revamp your bathroom with a dash of panache?
Seems like a no-brainer, right? No matter what style you go for, your space should be able to stand the test of time. Since design projects can often be pricey, you want to ensure your handiwork remains usable for the foreseeable future. One of the easiest ways to do that is to invest in quality design elements.
From a busy work schedule to a busy home schedule, days easily tend to get overwhelming, and there never seem to be enough hours in the day. With all that in mind, every home needs to have a quiet retreat.
Avantgarde is about much more than just bringing new geometric shapes to the bathroom that offer a pleasant change from the overload of squares and rectangles that surround you everywhere. The design of this refined vanity aims to provide as much storage space as possible without taking up too much room, as its wall-mounted systems allow you to revamp and revitalize even the smallest bathroom or powder room.
Spunky Orange and Serene Gray When it comes to blending gray with a bright color, orange is our personal favorite. Considered a risky choice until recently, orange is being used far more extensively in modern bathrooms, and even a small dose of this energetic hue can completely alter the visual appeal of your bathroom. Orange is peppy, spirited, cheerful, fun and vivacious - everything that you might say gray is not! And as with everything else in life, opposites work brilliantly well, even with color palettes.
The bathroom is also the perfect place to create a calming and relaxing space. With a claw foot soaking tub, a few lit candles, and dimmers on the lights, you can create a spa-like way to end your day.
