Mirrors and lighting are bathroom essentials, but compact powder rooms with awkward angles can make it challenging to comfortably fit both. This warm, contemporary powder room accomplishes both with a streamlined backlit mirror, which pairs well with the warm wood floors, white walls and black counters.
This bathroom shows an interesting blend of traditional farmhouse and modern shapes. The claw-foot tub and apron-front sinks are classic farmhouse elements, while the angled ceiling is reminiscent of the gables often seen in farmhouses. Hexagonal tiles also hark back to a farmhouse choice.
Look to the past. This dramatic bathroom window has custom shutters influenced by the Tudor period. Back then, it was difficult to make big pieces of glass, so the panes were tiny and held together with lead in a crisscross or other pattern.
