6 bathrooms with distinctive visuals
A bathroom is a very dichotomous space in terms of functionality as well as aesthetic. It has such a rigid predetermined set-up that it’s hard to break free of that mould and do something that is just a little bit different. Most bathrooms are designated some leftover space that interior designers have to work with. It is hard to find a bathroom that breaks traditions and tries to use a different style an aesthetic. Most of these conventional bathrooms have very few exclusive traits that might set them apart, so below, we will be looking at a set of bathroom designs that have exceptionally distinctive visuals.
- The claw-foot tub
The claw-foot tub is a vintage style luxury bathroom essential that can be used as a feature piece. The common aesthetic dictates that the vanity be the centerpiece of a bathroom but one way to set it apart is to use this tub as an attraction. The bathroom below uses soft, peach tile mosaics as a foreground to the vintage claw-foot tub. This way the overall ambiance is automatically elevated and set apart from the basic contemporary bathroom styles.
- Lush and luxurious
An exclusive version of the contemporary subset of design, this bathroom uses sleek, modish materials to reinforce a stylish look. The gold lighting sets off the earthy material palate, making for the perfect accentuation. The small space does not take away from the aesthetic but only enhances it.
- Platinum White
The horizontal line up of the bathroom fixtures may seem common, but the quirky proportions definitely set them apart. The looking mirror creates a two-fold space mirage that double the space in an illusive way. Add to that, the white scheme of the interior and its soft, gold lighting accents and this bathroom definitely manages to defy the conventional aesthetic.
Luxury bathrooms have a very distinct style; they can be used in lieu of transitional spaces. However, this only works in large spaces. In the interior below, the designers have defied conventions by incorporating bathroom fixtures – like the Jacuzzi bathtub and essentials – directly in the path to the actual bathroom within a small amount of space.
Usually, glass separations are used to waylay the shower area. This is a functional ‘must’; it is placed so that water stains do not enter the relatively dry sections of the bathroom. In the interior below however, the tables have been turned by putting a glass separation between the circulation space and the vanity-come-commode.
- Half walls
Inclusive bathroom spaces are a contemporary venture and the image below shows just how alluring the can be. You can only include the semi-dry parts of the bathroom in this aesthetic however; so as not to create functional disparity in the design.
