Slipper tub – Free-standing bathtubs come in all shapes and sizes these days, but the slipper version offers a special kind of indulgence. Originally a Victorian design, it features a higher back at one end, which provides support as well as privacy when you sink into the bubbles, wallow and relax. This luxe room ups the traditional look further with a wall of oil paintings, a Victorian-style towel rail and a gleaming wooden floor. I love the floor-length curtains too.
Shell – Give a coastal style half-bath an elegant upgrade with an oversized shell sink basin. You can find an authentic one if you’re willing to hunt, but be prepared for a hefty price tag. Composite reproductions can save money but won’t look as genuine. Tip: If you do find an authentic shell, the edges can be sharp and dangerous. Ask your contractor or builder to carefully file them down so your sink is safe.
Making use of one of the large drawers seemed to make the most sense. This pull-out is made out of two dove-tail drawers with a door that connects the two. The designers added a surface to the bottom drawer, and cut two holes into it for a hair dryer and curling iron. For the hair dryer, they put in a rubber holder for gripping different sized hair dryers. Powder-coated steel lines the curling/flat iron holder.
The small detail of cantilevered vanity keeps it from looking clunky. If you have an outdated vanity, look closely at the hardware on this unit. A coat of paint and new hardware can bring your bathroom up to date. This vanity keeps the bathroom looking much more open. In order to have a look like this work, you will need storage elsewhere in the bathroom. One thing I suggest is seeing if your contractor can install a closet or a nook large enough for towels and toiletries in the bathroom wall. Sometimes you can borrow the space from a bedroom closet that backs up to the bathroom.
Sink skirts have been a lasting style, derived more out of necessity to cover unsightly plumbing fixtures or bathroom toiletries than for aesthetics. But they’re not only highly functional and economical — they also provide softness to both kitchens and baths.
Black and white – Black and white tiles have long signaled that you’re in a traditional period bathroom. A border of black — on walls, the floor or both — adds a focal point and is elegant, timeless and chic. Also note how the vintage cast-iron radiator is painted to match. The console sink is another stylish traditional touch.
