9 Bath Trends from KBIS2019—Series 2

Hi guys, here is our series 2 take-aways from KBIS2019 —we are going to highlight 9 trends in bath from what we saw at KBIS2019.  There are are tons of new colors, new finishes, new technologies, new designs…In order  to illustrate how cool all of these new things are,  we will incorporate a lot of visual effects here.  So, we would apologize here first  if you feel there are just too much of them.  Anyway,  it’s time to grab  a cup of coffee or glass of wine, sit back and just  enjoy.

  1. Color, color, color. You may just see either white or beige for lavatory sink finish options  in your local home improvement stores, but definitely not here in KBIS:IMG_4699.jpgThese lavatory sinks are made out of fireclay and stain-resistant. We love these warm tones which give design more options, specially for making a statement in the powder rooms.

 

3. Heated bubble massage tub:

Heated bubble massage  is far more gentle and soothier  than the regular whirlpool jet massage. Everyone needs this at end of the work day.

 

4. Creative LED lighting application

Before and After—Minimulism vs. Maximalism

 

 

I am so happy to read an article in the WSJ that “After decades of stark, formulaic interiors, design is giving way to maximalism—a luxurious riot of color and pattern.” You can read this article right here

 

A powder room is where you wow your guests.  This powder room features pink designer wallpaper, pale blue wainscot panelings, crown moldings, a Waterworks washstand, gilded Louis XVI gilded gold leaf mirror, a custom upholstered floral petite chair, modern marble floor and framed artworks.  The mix-and-match approach of layers, patterns and objects make the space intrigue, elegant and sophisticated.  The transformation from minimalism to maximalism truly deliver a big wow!

Happy Friday

7 Techniques to Create an Upscale Master-bath

Every time when I work on the new project, I always try to do something different. Here is the master-bath project we just did recently.  The client has been my inspiration. It is really great to have clients who can push me to become better.  There are 7 interesting ideas I would love to share with you to create such an upscale and elegant master bath you can truly enjoy and relax!

  1. Always wrap the master bath with tiles or natural stones  from the floor to walls for the function reason and beauty as well. We used Italian marble for the floor.  The subtle and elegant veins and cream color immediately create such a soothe atmosphere to anchor the room. The floral mosaic wall echoes the same relaxing tone yet with very feminine floral design to create low-tone luxury.

  2. When the space is available and plumbing situation allows, always consider to have a free-standing bath tub.  The exposed curve adds a touch of elegance to the space. There is a great flexibility to place the tub at any location.
  3. Have a stylish linen cabinet.  It adds more storage space.  The one we have here is Baroque style. It looks much more personalized and upscale to have a furniture-like cabinet rather than the built-in one.
  4. Have a tray cart next to your tub. It is pretty handy for your towels and drinks when you take a bath.  Such a wonderful life style at home.
