People are very choosy when it comes to their bathroom decor. This is their personal space and hence they would want it to be the most beautiful place. But then once cannot ignore the functionalities that the bathroom has to provide too. There needs to be a healthy balance between the two. Bathroom is the place where you work a lot on your body hygiene and personal grooming. You will need more space in your bathroom for all these things along with other accessories and utilities combined with good aesthetics. In this section of the article we have not included the items and fixtures like sink, bathtubs, washbasins, accessories, shower etc. We have instead focused on the interior design and decor for the moment.
Today, there are only a limited number of manufacturers that produce pedestal tubs, such as Kohler and Aquatic Whirlpools. You cant really expect much variety of colors in the vintage pedestal tubs - these are mostly available in white color finishes. But, there are other types that you can repaint so that it will match your color theme. And the more modern versions of a pedestal bath are now produced in different colors and styles. Of course, bath fixtures are not the only elements of a vintage-inspired bathroom. The floor tiles could be made from different materials like marble or porcelain (tiles with three-colored combinations are also be considered). When it comes to your walls, you have the option of using paint, tiles, or wallpapers. Make sure that the color you use has a classic hint of the vintage era - any shades of blue, mint green, or black. The lighting fixtures found in Victorian houses normally incorporate frosted glass and chrome into the design.
When remodeling your bathroom in the classic era, you should naturally purchase fixtures that mirror the classic period designs. You could start by focusing on the bath tub that you want. Vintage bath tubs are available in different models and finishes. For the design, you could choose between a claw foot tub and pedestal tub. These could be available in different finishes like cast iron, copper, steel with porcelain coating, and acrylic. If youre tired of the usual claw foot tub, the pedestal tub is a good alternative. This has an elevated front portion that slopes down at the middle or it could also have parallel level edges. Unlike the claw foot tub, this doesnt have any feet, but a wooden oval-shaped base as a support. It also doesnt have any faucet drilling that allows water level to be deeper - you use freestanding or wall-mounted faucets for pedestal tubs.
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.
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.
Paint colors for bathrooms can be more daring then what youd use in the rest of the house. Bathrooms are contained so you wont have to continue the color scheme in a different room. Your master bath can be a room thats just for you. If you want a daring or darker color then just use it on half of the wall. Paint a lighter color on the top half or the top third of the wall and then separate the spaces with a wide molding or plate rail. This will compensate for a powder room or space that doesnt have tile. The best bathroom color is usually a cool tone simply because these colors recede. Bathrooms are often the smallest spaces in a house so cool or lighter colors will make it seem bigger. These include shades of purple, gray, blue or green.
