When you visit someone's home, one of the first place you will usually be welcomed is the living room. The modern day equivalent of a drawing room, these spaces are set up for conversation, connection, and entertainment. Each living room in this post creates a welcoming atmosphere with plenty of comfortable seating, vibrant colors, and elegant, modern style. They are the type of place you would be glad to show off and just as glad to be welcomed into.
There's nothing quite as refreshing as a good shower, whether you're after an early morning wakeup, a midday rejuvenation, or a hot blast to relax the muscles after a long tiring day; standing under that strong stream of droplets just takes some beating. So with that in mind, don't our beloved shower rooms deserve an extra special piece of our attention? Of course they do. Forget about the standard meager sized shower heads that dribble out an apologetic and spluttering jet, and the bog-standard off-the-rack cubicles that imprison you in their boring surrounds. We are talking about the world of wonderful waterfall shower heads that drench us in a soothing downpour, open plan settings that are inspired by nature, and just plain gorgeous shower room designs.
What should we do if the space to renovate is long and narrow? Decorating such spaces can be a bit puzzling but it's possible to create a fantastic look with style. This bathroom is a good example of such renovating, just look how fresh, luminous and modern it is!
There's nothing quite as liberating as taking a shower in the great outdoors, but if your location or typical weather forecast doesn't allow this luxury, then how about one of these dual aspect windows that look both out and up, forming a cutaway of your room for an outdoor effect. This master suite really has it all: a serene sleep area, a walk-in closet, and a truly enormous shower taking center stage. Another great application of LEDs make this shower room stand out, but lets hope the inhabitants of the next skyscraper over don't own binoculars.
The most popular bathtub option for a girlish space is a claw foot one because it looks refined and despite of its color and design, it's a feminine touch guaranteed. Such a tub adds a chic girlish look and easily matches almost any bathroom décor. You can also choose a modern tub in some bold shade like pink or purple on a metal stand, it will definitely make a statement. A modern free-standing bathtub in white with no legs is great for any modern bathroom, and it will look spa-like.
Walk-in showers have a strong spa feel, and incorporating them into a steam room will create your own private spa. You'll be able to use both things and they won't take too much space, the only thing you need is a bench or some seat, if there isn't enough space, you can make a folding bench. Let the seat correspond your bathroom style: if it's a nature-inspired bathroom, you may use a large stone instead of a seat, or go for a wooden seat. It would be wise to include a small window that can be opened when you use the shower alone to let the air circulate.
An elevated platform puts this stunning marble tub on display while large windows fold open for the truly indulgent experience of bathing in the open ocean. Wood paneling surrounding the bath are another important element that set the bath area apart from the rest of the bedroom in this ensuite design. Double sinks nestled into a marble countertop that matches the marble tub are a simple luxurious feature. And what better way to relax after a decadent bath than to dry off in the setting sun on this private deck.
To give the space a character and customize it more, the owner placed a vintage suitcase on a stand as a storage piece and hung a basket for towels. This is really a cute idea to repurpose a couple of old objects and make your space more personal.
Scandinavian style is very popular for décor today but sometimes it looks a bit cold and uncomfortable. This living room is none of that kind, it looks cool, warm and even a bit cheerful. Let's have a closer look at it to catch some details and get inspired.
Not everyone has the luxury of an enormous shower room like the one pictured here, but that doesn't mean that we can't take inspiration from its striking décor. Large slate gray tiles look great even in a small room, as large tiles generally increase the look of space in confined quarters. In this example, striking color is washed over the top of the sombre ceramics in the form of bright blue LED lighting. LED lights are great for use in bathrooms, and programmable sets will even allow you to change their color to suit your mood or the time of day.
