As much as we love bathroom design, we can easily recognize that some cards among the deck of bathroom ideas have been overplayed. As such, we thought we would present to you some new, surprising ideas that you may even think wouldn’t work – but we’ll show you that they do!
5 Surprising Bathroom Ideas
Mix and Match Different Styles
A mid-century column cabinet, a modern mirror and an eclectic suspension cabinet. In theory, this shouldn’t work but it certainly does! But why, how? Well, the secret is maintaining a connecting element between the pieces.
Notice that the Koi Column Cabinet has wooden details similar to the wood on the Huang Suspension Cabinet, while the hardware on the suspension cabinet is in a similar shade to the brass scales on the column cabinet. The secret is unity among difference.
A ‘Love Yourself Seat’
You might know that a love seat is basically just another name for a 2-seat sofa. “Why would I want a 2-seater in my bathroom?”, you might ask, understandably. This is an unconventional idea, for sure, but you will not regret it one bit!
Bathrooms are a place for relaxation, introspection, ‘me-time’. This, of course, implies some alone time – but no one said you had to be restricted. Give yourself double the room to sit, lay down, do your nails, face masks, or whatever else you wish! Double the space means double the pampering!
Rustic Elements in a Modern Bathroom
If you’re asking yourself “Isn’t this the same idea as the first one?”, the answer is: kind of. However, we wanted to approach this individually because this idea is far more controversial than simply mixing pieces of different styles.
Modern bathrooms have become this sort of sacred monument for those who love bathroom decor, one that would make you rue the day you messed with it. But a rustic touch, like the Padaung Stool, can actually give a modern bathroom a softer ambience, making it cosier and more ‘approachable’. We’re just asking you not to knock it until you try it!
‘Overdo’ it on the Patterns
You might have been warned not to go overboard on patterns, whether it is in clothes, graphic design or interior styling… but why? Going all out in one accent wall can make a bathroom incredibly impactful and fun! Just make sure you leave the rest of the room quite minimal so as not to overbear the eye.
The Tortoise Collection by Maison Valentina is great if you do want to adopt this look as it features a mirror, suspension cabinet, single washbasin and double washbasin all in a unique tortoise shell-inspired pattern.
A Bigger Than Life Floor Mirror
You’ve probably seen huge mirrors – usually vintage ones – placed like this on the floors of bedrooms because, honestly, they make for a great place to check your outfit and even snap the occasional OOTD. Mirrors in bathrooms, on the other hand, are often there just because people feel like they have to be and so they remain understated.
We suggest you go all out with your bathroom mirror. If it’s bigger than you, it’s perfect. You can still see if everything’s in check – and this time, from head to toe – and you get to reflect your beautiful decor as well. Win-win!
Those are all of our unique bathroom ideas. Did you enjoy them? Will you be applying any of them to your bathroom? Let us know!
