I came upon a recent article in Domino magazine with four beautiful bathroom before and afters. These bathrooms have some design features that I mention in some of my most popular blogposts and I just had to share the link to these beauties with you today.
The first design feature that stood out to me is from a post titled, Top 10 Bathroom Design Trends Guaranteed To Freshen Up Your Home, posted awhile back.
WHAT'S OUT - Tile used only where it HAS to be.
WHAT'S IN - Walls of tile!
Yes, let’s go big here and clad the entire wall in tile.
Two of the Domino featured bathrooms have stunning tile that clads a whole wall and makes such a major design statement.
Not only that, but three of the bathrooms incorporate a few of the top tips I’ve shared in my number one blogpost of all time, 11 Simple Ways To Make A Small Bathroom Look Bigger.
TIP #5 - Watch your transitions. The more you can bleed a material from one area to the next without stopping and starting it, the cleaner and less busy the space will appear.
I featured images of bathrooms where tile ran from the walls of the bathroom in through to the shower walls and then floor tile that did the same. You can see that three of those Domino bathrooms did that as well.
TIP #9 | Use mirrors strategically. I’ve also used mirrors in a small bathroom, from side wall to side wall, over a vanity with wallpaper used in the room. The wallpaper dies into the edge of the mirror, and that pattern then visually continues on to infinity through the mirror! You’ve just enlarged your room tenfold without moving a wall!
One of the bathrooms featured in Domino uses an antiqued mirror at the vanity, wall to wall, and the space just doubles in size.
I also love that little short marble slab backsplash in the last bathroom, something I talked about in this post recently, The 2” High Slab Backsplash Could Be Your Perfect Design Solution. Why do the 4” typical when you can do something a little bit different and unexpected?
The fact is, many of these features are seen all over these days, on Instagram, Pinterest, etc., as people are remodeling bathrooms more than ever and are looking for fresh ideas and inspiration.
Maybe you will consider some of these suggestions for your next bathroom design?
