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.
Natural tones provide a classic look. Luxurious shades of whites and creams work with any bathroom style from traditional to contemporary. Natural tones are also a fantastic base to which you can add color through accessories such as towels, soap dishes, and shower baskets and curtains. Cooler colors and tints create a calm, soothing environment. Shades of blues and greens are tranquil oceanic colours providing a relaxing element. Furthermore they help enhance a room making it appear more spacious (perfect for smaller bathrooms). Spa baths generally opt for these colors to emanate the feel of a personal sanctuary. Earthly colours provide warmth and comfort to your bathroom making it inviting and cozy. Colors such as oranges and reds are lively, great for re-energizing you each day. Theyre perfect too for larger bathrooms with lots of natural light
You can also buy the decorative towels that are embroidered and are accentuated with motif. So you can not be too frugal when you want to decorate your bath room although accessorizing and decorating bathroom is the least expensive that any other room decor of your home. You will also find one range with fringes, piping, laces to further add style. There are numerous choices that will help you to decorate your bathroom along with other accessories like bath rugs, bath mats, shower curtain etc. You can also buy the matching set of face towels and wash towels. Some brands like Avanti, JC Penny also provide the other accessories like toothbrush holders, soap dispenser and tissue paper holders having similar patterns as on towels.
Blues and greens are very popular today with many homeowners. Blue gives an aura of openness to the room, while green is perfect for the eco-friendly individuals among us. Green is a very soothing and relaxing color that helps one get close to the nature. Light tones are classic and they are always popular, no matter the latest trends. One way to make your bathroom look larger than it really is can be achieved by using various lighter color tones such as cream, light pink, light blue, golden and even pure white. White is a color that symbolizes peace and purity. Also it is a color that is favored by people who love classic styles and designs, who are not keen on experimenting with other colors. There are also some people who are very fond of darker, deeper colors such as maroon, dark red and dark blue. These colors are perfect for big bathrooms. With these colors you can easily give the room a cozier and more occupied feel. Red in particular is a color that asks for undivided attention. The color is very attention grabbing and you can use this feature to your advantage. Avoid making the entire bathroom in red, however, as this will be very distracting for the eyes.
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.
In flooring and fixtures, the colors should be coordinated or should provide a delightful contrast to the color of your walls to create a variety in visuals. However, also remember to stick to one or two shades only to avoid creating confusion in a single small space. The tiles on the floor should be darker than the walls. This is to emphasize the solid floor providing a contrast to the walls making it a focus. Also, it would help conceal dirt and grime and will not easily discolor through continuous use through time. Choosing bathroom colors for your vanities and cabinets is also carefully selected. In color schemes, dark colors will make a room darker. So when painting a strong and solid dark color, provide lots of light to make it brighter. Use small spotlights for a focal point effect enhancing an elegantly displayed décor or area. For counters, use light colors to create a clean and polished look. Accessories also play up the overall theme of the bathroom. Compliment dark colors of your bathroom with light accessories and vice-versa. Accentuate accessories with colors according to your mood and theme. This is a quick and interesting way to alter and cheer-up your overall bathroom appearance and play for bathroom colors.
