The bathroom is one of the most used rooms at home and many people dont give it a second thought. After all it is not a room that people enjoy spending their time in. Or do they? The fact is that many people find their bathroom their sanctuary of relaxation in times of stress. Not only that but enjoying a hot bath while reading a good book is one of the secret pleasures of many women today. So neglecting the decor aspect of the bathroom is a big mistake. There are so many bathroom color tips and ideas for your bath and shower that you can use to make this sanctuary a space that is truly pleasing to the eye. Everyone has a different idea of what the best colors for this room are, and this is a good thing since it creates a nice and welcome diversity from home to home. So here are some bathroom color tips that you can use in your own sacred space.
Most people dont think to do this with their bathroom. But you spend more time in your bathroom than you think you do. Cool colors like blue or green are soothing and calming. So if you want your bathroom to be a sanctuary, use these colors as a starting point for bathroom color ideas. Using lighter cool colors will also brighten your bathroom, and make a small bathroom feel bigger than it actually is. On the other hand, if you want to feel more energized and active, choose warm colors like orange or red for your bathroom. These colors can make your bathroom feel cozier and more inviting. But be careful - they are bold colors, and may overcome everything else in the bathroom. It might be better to use them for an accent wall, or for a splash of color to stand out and tie the rest of your room together.
If you have ever had a plain white, cream, or beige bathroom, it may have inspired you to want more variety in bathroom colors. Unless your tastes actually prefer those standard colors, you may have been longing for a more unique, personal sense of style. If this describes you, you can select from a variety of colors for every aspect of your bathroom! Your Blank Canvas If you feel that your bathroom walls are too drab, you can start there. The color that you choose for your walls can be the very first step in turning a blank canvas into a colorful world which will be as unique as you are yourself. If you keep in mind that your wall color will be the base for all of your other furnishings, it should be quite easy to select just the right color to be the foundation for your bathroom decor.
Paint schemes for bathrooms allow you to renovate one of the most expensive rooms in the house for less money. Youll be able to create a unique feel in the room through the use of color. Sure, most bathrooms have white fixtures but that doesnt mean that they cant work with all of the different design styles and color palettes. Youll need to figure out which pieces are going and which pieces are staying when you choose colors for bathrooms. If you are working with a vintage color tile then youll want to make it pop by using a neutral wall color. If your room lacks character then you may want to paint the vanity. You can add character to your space by painting your cabinets a modern black. You can tie it into the mirror by painting the frame the same color. For a shabby chic bathroom paint the cupboards ivory or use a distressed finish. If you want a lot of character in your room then hand paint delicate flowers on the cupboard doors to add interest. Keep the rest of the room neutral and give the painting a more elegant appearance by adding glaze over it for an aged effect.
Tile Format In either case the format and color of tiles can be used to great advantage with a little imagination. A bathroom revamp is not something normally done on a frequent basis so it is advisable to select size and color in line with current and projected trends to keep the bathroom as modern as possible, for as long as possible. Over the years the trend in tile format has been to increase both dimensions following the rectangular pattern. By comparison to 20 or so years ago when the norm was square 10 cms * 10 cms (although this format is still available). It is now common to encounter tiles in the 30 cms * 40 cms range and not unusual to find tiles of 30 cms * 60 cms and larger. So, potentially a good choice would be the larger format. Be aware that the small tile offers the advantage of being able to follow the contours of the walls much more so than the larger formats.
What tile to use and how much of the walls you intend to cover are critical issues when you come to redesign your bathroom. Bear in mind that the space you are designing is probably where you are going to start the day so the psychological effects of color and pattern cannot be understated. The question of a fully or partially tiled bathroom is an issue partially of taste and convention. Partial tiling offers the option of easily changing or embellishing to some extent the color scheme of the bathroom by simply painting the remaining wall or for mural or stucco type designs. Full tiling does not offer such flexibility but, it does offer the advantage of easy to maintain hygiene. Tiled walls can be easily cleaned and requires minimal maintenance.
