5 Touches that Add European Elegance to Your Home
Looking to spruce up your space European-style? You’re in luck! Family-owned, Spanish brand Porcelanosa (conveniently located in King of Prussia) sources all of their one-of-a-kind products straight from Europe to bring the elegance and authentic charm of the old world straight into your home.
Not sure where to start? Here are five simple ways to infuse a little European style into your own home:
Still dreaming about that lush bathroom from your last stay in Europe? Create your own! Vanities are très chic and an easy way to add that extra touch of glamour to your own washroom. The extra storage space and functionality make the addition an obvious choice.
Matte Black Fixtures
A fairly simple and inexpensive way to add an oh-so-European feel to your room’s appearance is to upgrade your fixtures. But not just any fixtures will do—opt for matte black ones for the most modern and elevated update. Replacing your old silver hardware for contemporary matte ones will create a dramatic, but not overpowering look in any kitchen or bathroom.
Stylish Sinks and Soakers
Uniquely shaped sinks or bathtubs are making their way into the mainstream in a big way this season. Why? Because they pair practicality with and art to create a really personalized piece for your space. Why soak in an ordinary tub when you can make a splash in an unconventional bath instead? The added interest will wow guests and enhance your overall bathroom experience.
Don’t be afraid to go bold with your tile choice. Bright colors, metallics, mosaics, mix-and-match textures—it’s all on trend. If you’re really ready to make an impact, add a tiled accent wall along your fireplace for a sleek and super cozy update, reminiscent of a Swiss ski chalet. A word of advice? Opt for larger tiles. They’re easier to clean and achieve a more streamlined look.
First there was linoleum, then ceramic, now the newest craze in countertop couture is Krion. The newest material on the market is made from high-resistance resin and natural minerals—making it a breeze to clean and warm to the touch despite its similar appearance to natural stone. The modern option is nearly indestructible, making it a stylish and safe choice for any family or living space.
