Do you have a bathroom renovation coming up? Or, are you looking for ideas to amp up the style in your primary? We’ve got some of the hottest bathroom design features…full of both timeless and on-trend looks. Plus, we’re filling you in on which features are favorites when it comes to the window coverings. Get ready for some inspo!
The Accent Wall
Wall-sized accents are not new to the design world, but they certainly are taking contemporary style by storm. In the bathroom, you’ll often see walls of swirling marble, geometric looks, shiplap, wallpaper–even a full wall of window coverings…the ideas are endless.
If you want your bathroom to have a style moment, the lighting is absolutely one area that can be enhanced with gorgeous design. From wall sconces to specialty vanity lights, a hanging chandelier or backlit mirrors–you’ll love what lighting can do.
You can have all the style you want, but without functional storage, you’ll never have the bathroom of your dreams. Some bathrooms are large enough to have linen closets. Others must rely on being efficient with the space. When it comes to bathroom design features, storage is high on the list of priorities, and there are a number of unique ways to achieve your ideal amount. Wall built-ins are clever and on-trend for storing towels and other accessories. Placing towers on the top of the vanity is another popular way to gain storage–as well as being able to hide outlets for toothbrushes and hair dryers.
Custom selection of your vanity is a great way to add a one-of-a-kind look to your bathroom. Do you prefer a painted look? Or, does the wood grain fit your style? Lighting around the vanity, from sconces to lighting above the mirrors can add useful function + beautiful style. Then, there are the mirrors themselves. Big on trend over the last few years, framed mirrors in varying shapes let you personalize the design. And, when it comes to hardware, matte black and aged brass are taking the look of the vanity up a notch.
What’s Important with Window Treatments?
The window coverings you add to your bathroom should heighten the style, provide incredible function and offer long-lasting durability. Because the atmosphere of the bathroom needs both light and privacy, we love the way Top Down Shades allow you to have the best of both worlds.
Then, there’s the climate of the bathroom. Depending on the ventilation and the location of the windows, you may be selecting window treatments based on ability to withstand high levels of moisture. Vinyl shutters are a great option, and they allow directional control of the louvers so you can have a balance of light and privacy.
We also love the way natural flows through sheer fabrics. Window coverings like Silhouette Shades soften the harsh light that enters so you can have the ideal atmosphere for getting ready. Need a bit more privacy? Dual shades are a popular product for just that reason!
One of the most popular bathroom design features of window treatments is the beauty of roman shades. This timeless design offers dimension to the overall look. But sometimes, homeowners would prefer the efficiency of roller shades that roll up and out of the way in the bathroom. With today’s window coverings, it’s possible to get the look of romans with the function of rollers.
