What Are Luxury Bathrooms Like?

Luxury bathrooms are anyone’s envy for their sleek, straight lines, sophisticated accessories, and elegant materials. Large spaces, sometimes integrated with others such as dressing rooms or bedrooms, in which to relax and forget about the stress of the day. Elements will help this as exclusive as jacuzzis, whirlpools, or saunas …

 

Styles

 

Although they are more frequent than others, luxury does not understand styles. Thus, this type of bathroom ranges from the most classic style to the purest minimalism, going through rustic, contemporary, and even industrial. The choice of one or the other will depend on how the house itself is decorated. And depending on what this is, the materials, furniture, sanitary ware, and accessories will be one or the other. Whatever they are, they are very spacious and bright spaces, often integrated into other rooms such as the bedroom or the dressing room.

 

Materials

 

Natural, elegant … the materials used are often the most classic: marble, stone, hardwood, porcelain, ceramics, wood … but you can also find another cutting edge as cement polished or lacquered wood. Deciding on one or the other depends on the tastes and the style you want to give to the room. The important thing is that space denotes durability and sophistication.

  

Sanitaryware, bathtubs, and sinks

 

The elements found in a luxury bathroom range from the most typical to the most exclusive and expensive: from the usual toilets to two-sinks, normally used in larger spaces. Showers with rain effect can also be seen, often complementing hydromassage or free-standing bathtubs. And it is that these baths are characterized by the use of exclusive elements such as jacuzzis or saunas, among many others …

 

Furniture

 

Not surprisingly, the furniture in this type of bathroom also breathes elegance and exclusivity. Thus, the washbasin furniture is usually spacious, with large countertops and plenty of space for storage, and decorative elements. You can also see marble or stone countertops in more classic environments or Silestone countertops in the most modern ones. Both of them usually contain sinks with two sinks or with a large sink. These bathrooms are also characterized by the use of other pieces such as shelves, shelves, chairs, armchairs, benches, and even sideboards. All of them chosen for their functional aspect and, above all, for their great decorative weight.

 

Essential accessories

 

In addition to furniture, sanitary ware, sinks, bathtubs, and showers, there are some essential elements in luxury bathrooms. As in any bathroom, mirrors are very important in this space. However, in these environments, its size multiplies, giving rise to more spacious and bright rooms, with a sophisticated air. But, if there is something that characterizes luxury bathrooms, it uses works of art to decorate the space: paintings, sculptures, photographs … These should be preserved especially since it is a very humid space. The classic textiles and plants will be joined by other decorative elements, usually design pieces, antiques, or accessories obtained on trips.

Trends: Goodbye To Cold Kitchens

The colors, materials, furniture, textiles … The new trends cover all aspects of the house, renewing each of the spaces and giving them that different air so necessary to start the year with enthusiasm.

 

The passion for cooking, so fashionable again thanks, in part, to television programs and some blogs, has made this room once again become the meeting place of the house. Hence, it requires certain aspects such as spaciousness, light, and, above all, integration with other rooms such as the living room. This will allow you to enjoy the creative work involved in preparing the dishes, without neglecting the fact of socializing with the rest of the people. A turn towards creating pleasant, cozy, and full of living environments.

 

It is a commitment to the practical and functional vision of this space: tall cabinets that take advantage of the entire space, multifunctional islands that visually delimit the kitchen and dining areas, hidden appliances that offer the latest in technology and efficiency, decorative and silent hoods, or interior accessories that allow you to keep utensils and food in order.

 

As for materials, the warmth forces you to opt for natural ones, such as wood or stone. There is also a commitment to textures, from the grains of the wood to the image of the exposed brick, since they generate that warm and cozy feeling that is sought after.

 

The main tones are neutral and soft whites and creams, which bring light and spaciousness to the kitchen, sometimes combined with touches of pink, dark red, orange, or purple. Always with very light finishes made of glass or transparent polyurethane. It is also possible to find the use of blacks and grays, combined with green or blue tones, which generate a more elegant sensation.

In short, the new trends in kitchens range from the most elegant and eclectic style to the most rustic and romantic, giving off an image of yesteryear, cozy and natural. Of course, whatever the style, they are always designed with maximum functionality in mind, using the latest technology and the latest in design.

10 Objects For A Nordic-Style Living Room

Nordic style is the order of the day. We like him for his commitment to light spaces, the feeling of calm and relaxation it generates, simplicity, and the warm and welcoming image it brings. The optimization of natural light, the use of neutral and light colors in contrast to others such as blacks, reds, greens or browns and the use of natural materials such as wood, metal or glass, so fashionable these days, are some of the main characteristics of this style, of which we have already spoken on occasion.

Practical and decorative shelves, shelves, and shelves are essential to help us take on the storage in our living room. The materials with which they have been manufactured, such as wood or metal, the colors used, white, gray, and wood finishes, and their design, make these pieces characterized by their visual lightness and decorative weight.

A perfect complement to any room, whatever the style, is the cushions. In the sofas of the Nordic lounges, we find many that help creates that warm and comfortable image.
