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.
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.
Synthetic and engineered finishes are - as the name implies - specifically engineered to last for only a set amount of time before they fail and require replacement. Natural materials, while certainly not immune to premature damage - this usually occurs if unskilled or improper installation procedures are used - tend to last much longer, and, more importantly, they age gracefully. An engineered material will look ugly after wearing out, contrarily, a natural material will acquire a warm patina over the decades - why else, for example, is historic architecture so cherished? The natural materials used in such architecture - stone, brick, ceramics, hardwoods - age beautifully over time and looks better the older they get. dRemodeling thus recommends that the homeowner consider using various stones for bathroom surfaces - granite, marble, sandstone, and similar stones are extremely durable and will offer decades of reliable service if properly installed and maintained. High quality ceramic tile is also suitable.
