Consider these slightly off-center fashions and features getting noticed by designers and consumers!
No curtains for curtains — You don’t need to worry about jumping onto the glass shower door track if you don’t have the budget or inclination for it, since plenty of people are embracing the texture and movement of cloth and vinyl panels. They easily define your bathroom’s design, and are just as easily switched out when it’s time for something new.
Commit to a color — If there’s a hue you just can’t get enough of, your bathroom is the place to embrace it! It’s your space with minimal visits by guests at the most, and they’ll probably love it, too. Combining the right shades of gray, blue, pink, green, yellow, purple or whatever color makes your heart sing on the walls, counters and floors will make it a truly customized retreat that will send your day or night in the right direction.
Stack your sconces — They’re like wall art, only functional. Arranging smaller light fixtures in a line, triangle, trapezoid or some pattern known only to you will break up the blank space with flair and can be placed exactly where you want the light to shine on your lovely face. This can easily be combined with the sconces installed on top of mirrors that are also making waves, though it can be more challenging to find the right wattage that won’t create too much glare.
Slide that sink to the side — This might fly in the face of your desire for symmetry but hear us out. Giving yourself a larger expanse of counterspace gives you lots more options for your morning and evening needs rather than trying to fit your trays and baskets into smaller surfaces, with room for a plant or lamp to spare. It also helps to keep the faucet’s spray from splattering all over at least one side of the counter.
