A vanity bench can always help if you spend a lot of time in the bathroom putting on makeup or doing your hair. Have a look at this incredibly elegant tufted bench from Alice Lane Home that could do the trick. A more compact option is a simple stool, like this gorgeously elegant selection (again from Home Bunch) that matches the style of this bathroom. This vanity from APD Architects actually has its own seated area, with a matching cushioned stool. Even a regular ottoman can work in a bathroom. This one featured on HGTV has a space against a wall right across from the vanity. This next very interesting bench featured on BHG stems out from the vanity beside it, where there’s a window. If the size and architecture of your bathroom make it work, then why not?
The rustic-modern bathroom often presents a blend of strong, simple forms and warm, earthy details. Note how the wooden shelves and charming view soften the modern features of the bathroom below from Jasmine McClelland Design. Once again, we see a lovely Apaiser tub take center stage. Warm wooden tones are also alive and well in the next featured powder room. We’re loving how the round form of the tub perfectly complements the modern Vernor Panton Large Globe Light, which adds industrial flair to the space.
There’s nothing quite like an old weathered wooden bench to add some character to almost any bathroom, even if the rest of the room isn’t exactly rustic at all. The State of Things shows a semi-rustic style in this farmhouse bathroom, which obviously works quite well, followed by this more modern and minimalist bathroom featured on Atelierul Decor.
Your bench doesn’t necessarily have to be built right into your shower. If you have enough room, you can purchase a standalone bench that you can bring right in, and remove whenever you want! Here’s a wooden bench in a large walk-in from HGTV. What type of bathroom bench or stool is your favorite? Let us know in the comments.
We end today’s post by highlighting powder rooms with traditional style. Charming wall tile, an arched window and a clawfoot Astonian Luxor tub grace the light-filled bathroom below. While subway tile adds a modern look to this next featured space, striped curtains and (once again) a clawfoot tub put their traditional stamp on the room. In case you’re curious, that fabulous shower rail can be purchased at Lefroy Brooks. Be sure to check out the brand’s lovely bathtubs as well. The silver feet on this clawfoot tub make it a true standout. Surround it with black tile, and you have a powerful contrast that can’t be ignored.
There’s a dash of tropical style in this bathroom, thanks to deck-like flooring, a view of palms, and a tub that mirrors the round shape of a porthole-style window in the distance. This luxe bathroom is filled with glamorous details, such as a plush rug and Mirror Ball pendant lighting. A round tub and two round basins complete the look.
