Best Bathroom Faucet Design

What faucet should you choose for your new or renovated bathroom? We talked before about the best kitchen faucet design, but the function of bathroom faucets are different than kitchen faucets. What type of bathroom are you choosing a faucet for: a half bath or full bath?

Half Bath Faucet Design

Hall bathrooms or half baths are used less often. The faucet you choose can be more decorative and less functional because this bathroom sink isn’t used for more than washing your hands!

A really cool bathroom faucet to consider is a wall mounted faucet. Paired with a colorful bowl or large basin the combination can really define your half bath!

Full Bath Faucet Design

Full baths or bedroom baths are used much more frequently and for much more than washing your hands! Gels, creams, and other pastes are sure to get on the sink and faucet so make sure both are easy to clean.

A chrome finish is the easiest to clean, this is probably the best bet for a frequently used faucet. The downside to the wall mount faucet discussed before is that you’re probably going to be getting the wall dirty and cleaning the wall as well as the faucet. This is a downside to this style faucet design. The basin look can still be achieved without a wall mount faucet, however.

Bathroom faucets can be functional and trendy. You just need to consider what you will be using the faucet for and make sure it facilitates those activities!

Take Trendy Kitchen Design to the Next Level, Retro Refrigerators

Old is new again with the newest trend in kitchen interior design: retro refirgerators. Think bright colored refrigerators reminescent of the 1950s.

The iconic 1950s look doesn’t mean it has to function like a refrigerator from 60 years ago! Big Chill offers retro style refrigerators and a range of other appliances that have the amenities of today’s refrigerators. Choose from a variety of colors and size combinations!

Northstar also carries a line of retro refrigerators in a variety of colors.

A 50s refrigerator adds a punch of color into a modern kitchen. They’re even perfect for a small space because you can get them fairly small as well. What a perfect addition to a studio apartment?

The refrigerators don’t have to be bright either! Check out the below picture with a black, 50s style refrigerator.

Get vinage appliances to match the refrigerator. The above kitchen is a great example of incorporating retro appliances into a modern kitchen. If you’re remodeling a kitchen with out-dated appliance, embrace an older stove by complimenting it with a retro refrigerator! It looks like the kitchen above may have done this, look at the amazing vintage stove top and oven!

What do you think about the new trend towards retro kitchen design?

White Bathroom Interior Design

The most important aspect of a bathroom is that it is clean, and what color says clean better than white? We already talked about white being a great color for kitchens, but white is the perfect color for any bathroom design as well! 

The Minimalist White bathroom

White is a logical color for this no-fuss design scheme. White is simple, straight forward, and neat. Just look at the clean-lined, minimalist bathroom above. The stright lines and simplicity of the design stand out when they’re complimented by the white walls and countertop. Even the rather simple bouquet of flowers adorning the top of the counter pops in the monochromatic simplicity. This design is very sharp and clean.

For a more elegant white bathroom, pair white with marble. The picture to the left shows an antique white bathroom. Paired with marble, white can fit into any traditional design. Tall cielings and small fixtures compliment the white and marble. This bathroom has an older feeling while still maintaining the clean aesthetic that compliments white!

Off White Bathroom

A white bathroom doesn’t necessarily have to be stark white to have the same qualifiers. Take the off-white bathroom above. It is still clean and light, but the off-white color makes it a more warm and welcoming bathroom. The chandeliers and ethereal rug transform the white bathroom into a romantic, feminine bathroom.

The Space Opening Element of White

 The magic of white is its property as a space multiplier. The picture to above is an example of white opening a space. White reflects light, so a bathroom with mirrors (and maybe windows) will instantly be opened up. Bathrooms can often be small too, so the light, open quality of white is particularly appealing. The bathroom above is all white: white walls, white cabinets, white floors, white fixtures, but even a majority white space will have a similar open effect.
