Master bathroom design trends
Design themes in a master bath run the gamut from earthy and serene to posh and full of glitz. No matter which is your style, there are a variety of modern trends to incorporate into your vintage bathroom design.
When planning the layout for your master bathroom, don’t just turn to a one-size-fits all decor you used in your other baths. This private space should be optimized so homeowners can relax after a hectic day. To achieve your ultimate room, consider these trends:
A well-designed space elicits a feeling of luxury, no matter what theme. Use high contrasting colors to create drama, by adding a vanity in a rich dark wood tone. This will set the mood for the room, and you can tone down other fixtures like chairs and accessories.
Is there a certain color that calms and rejuvenates you? If so, the master bathroom is a perfect room to add the hue. There are a variety of places to incorporate the color including: walls, linens, seating and accessories. Make sure you achieve a balance in your space. To do this, incorporate various tones of the same color. Additionally, if your major furnishings, like your tub, vanity and seating are neutral, you can always change up your statement colors to correlate with the seasons.
An open floor plan isn’t a trend limited to kitchens: Designers are lifting the borders on bathrooms as well. There are a variety of ways to open up your space. First, confine your toilet to its own separate room and bring the tub out front and center. This layout works great for loungers like clawfoot tubs. Open up the space leading to the master bath, and install French doors, curtains or do without partitions at all.
Today’s modern bathroom considers the shower and tub as two separate entities. Standalone units are also more than just an overhead faucet. They offer a variety of fixtures, from the hand-held sprayers to surrounding body jets. These amenities can instantly create a spa like experience for anyone lucky enough to own a shower of its kind.
Illusion of space
Not everyone has the luxury of an adequate-sized master bathroom. When square footage is limited, there are ways to create the illusion of more space by playing up the decor. Mirrors add depth and reflect light, so don’t be afraid to break traditional barriers by installing floor-to-ceiling models. In your next vintage remodeling project, cover one dominant wall in a mirror to create the look of endless space. Additionally, landscape art of open seas or horizons can elicit a similar result.
Accent lighting is always a key factor to a successful master bathroom design. While scented candles are great for aromatherapy, consider adding votive-inspired wall sconces, as an everyday alternative.
