Polished-nickel faucets have always been popular in the kitchen as they proudly sit next to the sink and stainless steel is definitely no stranger to the kitchen thanks to its sturdy and easy-to-clean reputation. But the last few seasons have seen the warm glow of copper finding its way back into the modern kitchen that seems to draw inspiration from an era gone by. A revival of styles such as vintage rustic farmhouse and industrial have seen homeowners opt for copper cooking ranges and finishes that play into the overall ‘modern-meets-classic’ theme.

Take the less expensive but equally impressive option by simply changing the pulls on your kitchen cabinets from wood to brass or bringing in new pendant lights that usher in a cool copper glint. As we alluded to earlier nickel and chrome are perfect for those who want a cooler metallic shine with a silvery glint and these two finishes are ideal for the smart contemporary kitchen where copper might seem out of place. And if all else fails just a series of open shelves with copper pots and pans on display can make a big impact as well!

Mirrors with LED strip lighting on the edge combine both these features in a dazzling space-saving fashion. They are a great choice for those trying to create a refined spa-styled minimal ambiance without having to compromise on practicality. In the small powder room these illuminated mirrors remove the need for additional pendants of sconces next to the mirror and all you will ever need are neatly placed recessed lights.

Styles such as Victorian Art Deco Hollywood Regency and even eclectic definitely need this sparkly touch to really give the black and white powder room that unmistakable allure. Add in a couple of chic sconces next to the mirror and you have a powder room with a ‘high-end’ feel!

The pairing gives your bathroom a noble but cozy appeal. The entire sink setting is simplistic and minimal; even so the rustic elements fill the seeming emptiness of the space.

The diagonal shapes give the illusion of spaciousness and even the smallest bathrooms seem like they extend further than they actually do. If you are in love with monochrome bathrooms but worry about them becoming too monotone a diagonal checkered pattern will not let you down!

Black and white powder rooms still allow you to add a fair bit of color and because of the neutral backdrop every little drop of color makes a big visual impact. Maybe this is one of the biggest reasons for the popularity of the color scheme in bathrooms as well. You can just alter the accent additions (stuff like towels floor mats and maybe even those flowers on the vanity) with changing seasonal trends to give the powder room a completely different vibe. One color that never seems to fail when coupled with black and white in the powder room is gold! When in doubt turn to golden-tinted accessories to enliven and enrich the mundane powder room.

The easiest way to add freshness style and a relaxed ambiance into the bathroom (or any other room of your home) is by adding a potted plant or two. Indoor plants do not often require meticulous and constant care and a light-filled bathroom with slightly damp conditions is perfect even for cool air plants or a scintillating living wall. With bathrooms going down the path of seamless indoor-outdoor interplay it definitely is now far easier to usher in a healthy dose of natural goodness.
Marvella Pasquier Bathroom Design, 2017-09-15 09:36:35. How smart is it to give an already ‘limited’ room a color scheme anchored in black and white? The answer to that question would be ‘very smart’ if you can get the balance between the two hues right and the lighting spot on. No matter what color you use in the powder room poor lighting can give this small space a dark and dreary look. This could very well start you off on a cycle of constant redecorating and repainting without ever realizing that the real issue at hand is poor lighting. A sparkling chandelier coupled with clever ambient lighting is the ideal way forward in the black and white powder room.
