Use a Shower Niche to Boost Storage and Design

As you approach the process of installing a shower panel or other bathroom accessories, you may look into small storage options that can hang from your showerhead or attach to the wall. However, these products don't last and do nothing to improve the look of your shower. 

Think about creating a small shower niche inside of your shower that will blend in perfectly with your d├ęcor and give you that bit of storage you need in the shower 

This shower niche is a chance for you to improve the room's storage capacity and boost the design of the shower. When installing your shower, instruct your contractor to leave a small indentation in the wall - you can then use the area inside to decorate with mosaic tile to infuse the area with a pop of color.

After installing a small shelf, you can keep your shampoo, washcloths and sponges within reach. This is one of the most unobtrusive ways to improve the storage capacity of your shower and will jazz up the look of your space.

Storage space is always at a premium in bathrooms, but thankfully there are ingenious ways to pack more into your washroom without inhibiting traffic flow. A shower niche is one of the easiest ways to do that. Make it a part of your shower plan!

White and Gray Bathroom Scheme for a Modern Apartment

While you may be sifting through your many options and other accents, your color scheme is quite possibly the most important facet of the room. Gray and white go together far easier than you may expect and the combination will give you an opportunity to incorporate plenty of contemporary additions. Here are some ideas to achieve a white and gray bathroom scheme successfully.

Statement Vanity

Select a moody gray vanity to be the centerpiece of your design. The vanity is generally the visual focus of the space and pretty much the only piece of furniture in the bathroom. Let it stand out!

Distribute Evenly

Wainscoting is one of the easiest ways to provide equal proportions of color throughout the space. Whether you're using wood or marble, white wainscoting around the room will allow you to paint the rest of the walls gray and improve the use of light in the space.

Neutral Colors

One of the greatest advantages of this color scheme is that both are neutrals. Each colorful accent will be doubly impressive against a gray and white bathroom scheme. Your artwork and line choices will look far more attractive against the neutral backdrop. 

Metallic Finishes

Finish the look of the space by using brushed nickel or chrome fixtures - this will help balance the crisp white and matte gray with a dose of metallic shine.

A neutral color palette like a white and gray bathroom can dramatically open up your style choices and create a bathroom that's adaptable to any season.
