Beautify Your Bathroom
Because the bathroom is such a small yet important part of your house, it can be complicated to decorate it satisfactorily. The space limitations are very real and very constrictive, and, while this can make it a simple task to decorate, it can also make it very hard to get just right. But you can’t afford to overlook the room that houses your plumbing facilities. The average person spends a lot of time in there. It is one place that’s not just popular for the facilities but is also used for grooming, thinking, reading, and even sometimes singing. And, as everyone knows, these activities are best done in a beautiful, comfortable, relaxing space. Here are some bathroom design ideas that should help get you started.
Color code this room just like you would any other room of the house. You may even want to start with stripping everything down and painting the walls a base color that you can work with. Wallpaper in select places can help add texture to the atmosphere, but use it sparingly and make sure that it falls neatly into the color scheme. The rest of the accessories and facilities should match the color of the walls. If green is your base hue, try to make everything else various shades of green with perhaps a bit of white and blue thrown in for variety.
If you prefer not to paint, at least throw in some accent pieces with bold coloring to offset the bland colors of the plumbing. White is a fine base color for this room but it’s important to add touches of other strong colors to make things more interesting. Even just a bold shower curtain that is attractive to the eye and draws in the viewer can spice things up a lot. Make sure the shower curtain matches the room’s color scheme, and pick it out with all the care you would use to choose a new piece of living room furniture.
Use open air shelves only for displaying beautiful figurines, sculptures, or works of art. In this small space where less is more, it’s usually best to pick out one main piece that you would like to show off and arrange the other bathroom design ideas around it. Hanging trays are beautiful for displaying centerpieces, but make sure to choose something soothing and soft to help keep the mood peaceful in this room. This room is one of the most used in the entire house, so don’t be afraid to choose a piece that you’d like for more than just the plumber to see. The plumber will enjoy it, but so will almost every other guest that comes over for dinner and drinks.
Make sure to have plenty of cupboard space for storing your toiletries, medicines, and other essential bathroom items. While these should not be kept out in the open, they are an important part of any bathroom, and it’s important to have ample space for them. Cupboards can be installed unobtrusively behind mirrors or beneath sinks. Make sure to use a cupboard door that is both decorative and secure.
