Diy Bathroom Mirror Ideas

SPERICAL CHANDELIER

A spherical chandelier and a repurposed, towering bookcase are highlights of a Tampa, Florida, residence designed by Nate Berkus.

UNDERSTATED CEILING LIGHT

Understated lighting appeals to the minimum aesthetic of the bathroom in a modern Washington, D.C. home made by Darryl Carter. The vanity hides drawers for storage.

TRADITIONAL SCONCES

The master bathroom's bathtub, sink, fittings, and black limestone flooring are all by Waterworks at this Upstate New York home. The sconces are by Vaughan, the kilim is from West Elm, and the artworks were bought in London and Paris.

SIMPLE SCONCES

Simple lighting offers striking contrast to this busy Finnish wallpaper in the 1950s adorning the walls of this Manhattan apartment powder room, decorated by Katie Ridder. Hanging above a Waterworks sink that is simple yet stylish, a FontanaArte mirror echoes the wall colour.

TUBULAR SCONCE

In Emmy Rossum's NYC apartment the custom made vanity has fittings by Kallista, the walls, sink and floor are all lined in Ann Sacks marbles, the medicine cabinet is by Robern and the sconce is by Circa Lighting, more interesting ideas.

GILDED CHANDELIER

A sculpture by Louise Bourgeois overlooks a bath in French architect Jacques Grange's Paris apartment. The chandelier is 19th-century; the bathtub, sink, and faucet are by the inlaid marble floor and L'Epi d'Or is based on a pattern.

GOLDEN SCONCES

The powder room in this Hudson River rancher mural is by Shantell Martin and the wainscoting is painted in Benjamin Moore's Midnight.

VINTAGE ITALIAN CHANDELIER

The master bath of Alice Childress and Christopher Daniels's downtown Manhattan loft, built with the help of Courtnay Daniels Haden, carries a classic Italian chandelier, a classic freestanding marble tub, along with an inherited 18th-century painting. The custom made vanities are outfitted with Caesarstone countertops and Kohler sinks; the sink and tub fittings are by Barber Wilsons & Co.

LOW-HANGING LAMP

Designer Darryl Carter generates a master bath that is true for his Virginia farmhouse's origins by utilizing a very simple lamp he designed for the Urban Electric Co., a sink vanity made out of an oak table, and a slender mirror that sits in the front of the chimney.

Bathroom Storage Ideas

Contrasting Colors for Your Convenience

Make better use of this space behind a bathroom by installing shelves. For an added touch, paint the back of the shelves a contrasting color, glass stairway railings.

Just Hanging Out

A hanger with hooks holds and displays necklaces along with different accessories. The hanger can be held up with suction cups or suspended from a hook.

Unique Storage Tips for a Small Bathroom

Shelves suspended from extended double C hooks and eye bolts give a industrial, yet tasteful storage space to a toilet. The white and black colour scheme makes it all the more striking.

Build It Right Into the Wall

Though better suited for renovation or construction, an integrated niche or alcove at a shower increases the storage capacity. It makes an interesting design element.

A Yellow and Green Basket, A-Tisket, A-Tasket

Most will agree that containers make excellent storage. They're pretty, come in different shapes and sizes, and most are fairly hardy. Attach of the same size and color and you have a storage system that is trendy.
