Japanese Minimalism and French Luxury – Bathroom Renovation

October 23, 2013

Bring the spa to your bathroom. *Japanese minimalism* and *French luxury* are the sophisticated bathroom renovation trends of 2014. These minimalistic and luxurious design elements create a spa-inspired bathroom oasis.

Japanese bathroom renovation designs are minimal and tranquil. Focus on flow, curves and water elements. Décor options include:

The House Fit for “Sonny and Claire”
Second Master ensuite features walk-in shower with high-end washlet

· Kimono-shaped mirrors
· Wooden chest cabinetry
· Cherry blossom light fixtures
· Cascading wall art and stone motifs
· Curving walls
· Waterfall showers and floating sinks (creates additional space)

French bathroom renovation designs showcase modern luxury. Create every day comforts with electrical design elements. Décor options include:

· Grand french doors
· Wall mount bronze faucet
· Marble mosaic sink
· Gleaming silver tones to enhance the room’s old-world elegance
· Free standing soaker tub
· Marble and wood furniture, vanities
· Candle-like lighting, antique framed mirrors

Both the French and Japanese design trends also dictate the colour trends. Get creative with these wall art ideas:

· Black and white, steel grey and earthy browns displayed with glass mosaics and textured wallpaper
· Glass mosaics can be accented anywhere
· Textured wallpaper should be placed in the most ventilated part of the room.

The spa-inspired bathroom is a modern oasis that opens the bathroom space while providing luxurious comfort. Contact us for information on how to incorporate these trends into your bathroom.
