Home Decorating Ideas for the Bathroom

Home Decorating Ideas for the Bathroom

Bathrooms are often the least attractive places in our homes, but the bathroom is an indispensable room, and it is very useful when you need bit of rest and relaxation! So why not think about decorating it to make it become a real asset of your house? Classic and modern bathrooms are the two most popular styles everywhere; let’s have a look at these two styles now!

  1. Classic Style
A classic style is suitable for most houses, especially villas. A classic bathroom makes your house look more subtly luxurious. Typical features of classic bathrooms include lamps near the mirror, elegant roll-top baths, ornate mirrors, and small accessories in wood or copper. Traditional colors for this type of bathroom are often a combination of black, white, and copper.

  1. Modern Style
A modern style is suitable for flats or apartment buildings. A modern bathroom often focuses on a sleek, streamlined look, and a minimalist design. You are suggested to use fitted bathroom furniture which will help your bathroom have a smooth and clean look. The top accent colors for a modern bathroom are yellow, bright pink, lime green, vibrant orange, and teal. You can also think about a wall of stunning or high-impact wallpaper as a great focal point. However, remember to use a moisture resistant paper to protect the areas from getting wet. Some must-have furniture in a modern bathroom are a large shower head and a large faucet fixture in the sink.

Whether you choose a classic or modern bathroom style, you should consider the following suggestions.

  • Create a window treatment and a lovely shower curtain which match with the color of your bathroom walls.
  • Put your towels racks in convenience locations (maybe beside a bathtub or over the toilet)
  • Add personalization to your bathroom by using small accessories such as toothbrush holders, tissue holders, and a soap dispenser with lovely messages for your family members.

Sometimes people spend a ton of money to have a stylish bathroom. Therefore, you should do market research before deciding to buy any furniture for your bathroom. You can also search and use deals on furniture from famous online retailers such as Overstock or Target  to save big bucks.

It’s time for you to refresh your bathroom as well as other rooms in your house. Read

  1. I wish our bathrooms were prettier. Someday I will put money into making them better.

  2. I think that the bathroom should always be the first room you put the most money into, it is the R&R room after all.
