Concrete walls in the bathroom make an impact instantly and do so in an understated fashion that they are so very capable of. You will notice the sudden shift in ambiance and while you might want to add a few wooden elements or even a couple of indoor planets to usher in bit more warmth, there is absolutely no doubting the minimal sophistication that concrete brings. It keeps things simple and you are often forced to de-clutter to keep up with its refined appeal.
There is a reason why the classics are the classics and if you love a bit of timeless traditional charm in the bathroom, then now is the time to shed the modern cloak and give the space an upgrade. Giving the bathroom a more classic appeal comes with bathroom fixtures with warm, metallic glint, a touch of gold here and there and plenty of textural contrast as well. You can still choose a predominant style – be it eclectic, rustic, art décor or shabby with a touch of elegance! A vintage bathtub, weathered wooden vanity and a lovely chandelier should complete this refined space.
Of course, trying out a surface clad in concrete means you will have to design a room that can adapt to its raw, unpolished and industrial appeal. Rather than being a limiting factor, concrete as a material opens up new decorating avenues and today we share with you the best bathrooms clad in concrete. Some embrace it fully with walls and flooring in concrete while others take it slow with just a concrete vanity. No matter, which look you prefer, this is a look at how you can bring concrete to the bathroom in style!
Recycling and reusing materials helps both you and the planet immensely. In a design world that is far more eco-conscious than ever before, it is barely a surprise that ‘fashionable trends’ also come with a heavy green tinge. Last year we harped on about the use of reclaimed wood in bathrooms and its many benefits. Today, it is the turn of upcycled bathroom vanities and all the charm that they bring! Old bicycles, bedroom dressers, forgotten slabs of wood in the basement, wooden crates and a whole lot more – pretty much everything and anything can be converted into a bathroom vanity these days.
For reasons we cannot absolutely pinpoint, but can strongly vouch for, orange looks smashing in any industrial style room and does so with complete ease. Orange coupled with gray can give you a balance of something exciting and something understated while a wall of burnt orange is a complete hit as an accent addition. Make sure though that you do not turn to glossy shades of orange as they tend to overwhelm when used in excess.
