Time to Change Your Bathroom Decor? Try These Styles
In a world where you are bombarded with Do it Yourself (DIY) project ideas and pictures of before and after, you may be tempted to actually embark on your own DIY journey. It can be rewarding and satisfying to look at your own work. A professional comes with a cost and whilst the job may be done well, they may not have met all your requirements.
Doing or redoing your bathroom has become a trend. There are things you can do to change your decor; painting, adding enclosures (you may need a professional for this one) and even utilizing the space to give it a bigger feel. Whatever your taste, there are several bathroom decors for you to try.
The Modern Decor
As the name implies, it is modern and what everyone is probably doing. Your bathroom is probably going to have a glass enclosure and well a lot of glass. Your vanity may be glass and even the counters. If done well these can be very elegant and if not, they can seem over done and appear as if you are trying too hard. The key is to have the right blend of glass, ceramic and concrete. If you go this way, then choose your colors carefully.
Antique or Classic
If you watched Victorian movies you may have been obsessed with their claw foot tubs and decide that you want one. So, you get your tub and now you decide to design your entire decor around the tub. Nothing is wrong with being ambitious but you would make people cringe if you chose a brown decor. This again shows that you’re trying too hard. You can use browns but consider mixing it with lighter colors like creams or even yellows and different shades of white. Whether you decide on marble or wood, your bathroom should be a chick and a reflection of what you are trying to portray.
Some persons go for a tropical bathroom. By tropical, they want to use bamboos and get the feeling of being on vacation. These bathrooms are beautiful with their rain shower heads, saunas, and even shower benches. You can basically do anything here; from shells to plants, creating mirages or even having an overhead ceiling fan. The key here is not to exaggerate but create subtle hints of a tropic feel. Top off this decor with some vibrant colors or even a tropical scented candle to give you the feeling of being on an island retreat.
Nothing is wrong with simple especially if you have a budget and are working with a small space. If you are working with a small space, the key is using shelves but don’t use too many shelves that it appears as if you are creating clutter. You can do anything with this design; mix up modern and classic or simply just have a bathroom that is your oasis. Either way, lighting, and scents are very important for creating the mood.
