Lakisha Day February 23, 2021 Bathroom
Depending on your bathroom, getting a new design can be as easy as a new coat of paint or as challenging as a complete remodel. Changing all of the fixtures in your bathroom might seem like a big project, but if your vanity, toilet, or tub is starting to show wear, a remodel can provide a much-needed facelift to an older home. Your first step is to look around your bathroom and decide what you would like to change. Pick out new paint colors and towels if youre unhappy with your colors and the general theme of your bathroom. Go ahead and commit to your remodel if the shape of your vanity makes you miserable or your toilet looks like it survived the first moon landing. Choose a Theme for your Bathroom Design By choosing your theme ahead of time, you can give yourself the opportunity to choose fixtures that represent your style even before you start to pick out paint or think about toothbrush holders. You can find bath vanities and mirrors that have a distinctly rustic design if you have always loved the American west or that have an antique finish if you enjoy the intricate details of the Victorian era. By shopping on the internet, you can get a good idea of what is available in your price range and get inspiration for themes you didnt think of.
When choosing the color of bathroom tile youll want to be careful. Its likely that youll have to live with your decisions for several years or even decades. You may even pass your tile choices onto the next homeowners. You may want to steer away from trendier materials and colors that will become dated quickly. This doesnt mean that you have to have a boring bathroom. Instead of going with a bold tile color go with a neutral tile and then mix it up with a bolder bathroom paint color. You might not even have a lot of wall space in your bathroom because of lots of white tile. This means that it can handle a more vibrant color. Youll just want to choose a shade that doesnt make you look sickly because you will be peering into the mirror in such a room. For instance a Tuscan bathroom might have deep wood tones and a neutral travertine tile. You can paint a rich gold or terra cotta on the walls. You can change this out a lot easier than youd be able to change out tile so you can afford to take a risk. Many stones like granite or slate have flecks of orange in them that will tie the room together.
Depending upon the colors and texture or design used on the walls and tiles etc, you can make a note and follow similar scheme while choosing the rest of the things for the bathroom. Check out what accessories are available in the bathroom and what is required. A detailed inventory should include accessories like soap dish, dispensers, toilet paper roll and stand, waste bin, mirror, stool, bucket and mug, brush holder, etc. These are functional accessories required for day to day use. All these accessories can be bought in sets with matching color and designs or you can buy them separately while ensuring that the color combination is in line with the overall theme and compliments the rest of the bathroom. The bathroom is not complete without the rest of the accessories including toilet seat covers, shower curtains, window curtains, foot mat and rug, napkins and towels etc. While you go looking for them, keep in mind the color combinations in line with the overall theme. Your bathroom is where you spend a lot of time everyday and should make you feel relaxed. It is important that the bathroom be decorated with the right color combination and design as you like it. It should make you feel good and should be functional too. A bit of time and effort spent while planning can give you the required end result.
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 are not interested in theme based bathroom decoration then you can think of the bathroom color, lighting and ventilation and changing of few bathroom accessories, But all these things should be done properly. Few of the decorating points are as follows: Paint: Think of the paint of the bathroom. You can use both washable paint and wall paper. Use the washable paint where water contact is more and use the wall paper where the water contact is less. If you are using the wall paper on the certain area of the wall which often comes into the water contact then the wall paper may be separated from the wall. Flooring: You bathroom floor should be easy to clean, water resistant and safe to use. For easy and quick bathroom do it your self project you should choose to use ant-static, anti-bacterial floor tiles which you can peel and stick over the existing floor easily without taking any help. Non-slip floor is always recommended to protect your family from injury due to fall. If you family is associated with small children and aging people then you should be very careful towards the safety of your family members.
In many homes the bathroom is the one area that is most neglected in the entire room. It is a small room which is mostly painted in white or a sickly green. However nowadays many homeowners started paying more attention to their own bathrooms and giving it that importance that it deserves. There are some interesting trends in modern bathrooms regarding color that are touching on bolder and brighter shades. You can go with burgundy or a strong and cheerful yellow or even an energizing teal. Many people also like the seaside designs with the refreshing ocean blues and greens. You can go here with bright turquoise and some rich violet shades that can be in the wall tiles or wall color. While I personally dont like brown, there is a strong trend in employing browns and blues on walls. For example you could use the wall painted in brown and then add blues as accents or patterned tiles on the walls, floors and even shower stalls. Also brown cabinets seem to be quite trendy today. Many people still prefer the neutral colors, and that is also OK as neutral is always in fashion. All you need is add a couple of highlighting accents, a few shades of brown or gray, or different shades of the very same color. The classic white which used to be quite strong is nowadays replaced with a soft and muted off-white strongly reminiscent of whipped cream. There are many shades of white that you can use and it gives the bathroom a nice effect when you alternate between them.
