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.
Pastel shades in small rooms add colour without being overpowering. Peaches and pale pinks create a beautiful backdrop, easily flattering most skin tones. Theyre great for a guest bathroom. Placing a mirror on top leaves guests glowing and uplifted. To ground a room select a slightly darker colour for the floor. To create spacious perceptions have the ceiling a lighter shade than the walls. You are best to choose between 3 - 6 colours to work with in one room. This doesnt mean go crazy. Pick one strong vibrant color and use different shades of the same colour. Have one lighter or neutral color (best for the walls), one medium shade from the same family (great for shower curtains and larger fittings) and then use an accent colour on statement pieces (towels, tumblers, soap dishes) to spice things up a bit. The colors you choose will impact on how you want the room to feel. Redecorating or repainting your bathroom can be a daunting task. However as long as you know what you want out of your bathroom and how you want it to feel you can make the perfect choice by adding a personal touch to your design.
After you have decided on a color for your bathroom walls, your next step is to decide whether you want the rest of your décor to blend in with this color or to contrast against it. For example, if you want blue walls, you can choose other shades of blue for your other furnishings; or you may prefer a different color entirely, which will make it much more noticeable in contrast to your walls. You may also like a variety of colors, and can create a very nice effect with this method. Coordinating Your Decor When you have made the basic decision about your wall color and preference in color-scheme, you will find that the sky is the limit in how beautifully you can coordinate your bathroom. While you may be thinking that it need not go any further than having matching or contrasting throw-rugs, bath mats, and possibly towels, in fact you can have the very best results if you plan for everything in your bathroom to fit into this interesting decorating idea.
Use of Color Color choice is of course entirely subjective again current trends favor lighter warmer pastel colors. The use of these colors increase the perception of space and light, especially in a small bathroom. Colors such as beige, orange and pink would be regarded as warm as opposed to blue, green, gray. Tile arrangements range from the simple one tile for the whole walls, to more elaborate combinations of tone used with a border tile to enhance the effect. Commonly the darker tone is used below the border and the lighter above. One border or multiple borders can be used. Picture or decorative tiles can be added at random but focal points to further enhance the desired effect. Tile sets are available from manufacturers that offer all these options.
Vintage blue bathroom fixtures create a more classic and relaxing vibe to the Victorian era bathroom that we adore. Normally, people stick to the traditional white color in designing their vintage bathroom - that was before. Now, homeowners are more adventurous and confident in their choice of bathroom colors. So, if you like vintage blue bathroom fixtures, you should trust your instincts and make things happen. Its not a surprising fact that many people are still big fans of the classic period-styled bathrooms. Who could ever resist the sophisticated and clean design finish that vintage bathroom fixtures give? Almost no one, I bet. Because the antique type is pretty hard to find, sellers of replicas or refurbished antique fixtures offer these at higher prices - you could always find great deals over the internet, though.
To jazz up its designs, set square tiles diagonally to create a diamond pattern instead of a classic checkerboard. Use a single color or alternate two neutrals of slightly varying saturation, for example a soft ivory and an almond. Its very important that you choose one that has some texture to it. Since the area is prone to water spills, a slick surface may present a hazard. A tile with a small amount of subtle texture will help prevent accidents. As well, for a luxurious touch designer bathrooms incorporate, you can warm up the cold one with electric floor heating. Turning your cold one into a warm surface will help you recreate the warm atmosphere of a comfortable spa. Your bathroom tiles can set the tone for the whole space. A dynamic flooring pattern or a deep wall color can make all the difference as you remodel a bathroom. The real key is not going overboard with tiles that make the room too busy.
