Even though you don’t spend most of the day in the bathroom it still tends to awaken the inner designer in most people. The truth, some people are never satisfied with the way this humble room looks. Even if they have caught on to the latest trends, and added the most attractive features, sometimes it feels like another tweak may be necessary. Part of the reason for this is the various elements that go into making this room work from a visual standpoint. Within each of these categories, there are so many different types and styles available that it is easy to experience a little buyer’s remorse.
Another reason for the seemingly quick aging of bathrooms is that design trends evolve quickly. You not only want to keep up with the new developments, you might want to avoid feeling like you’re doing something you have done before. You will want to choose features and a design that will last for years, plus you want value for every dollar you spend.
The Main Features
Generally, the main components of the bathroom, the tub, sink and toilet should always match. While you might feel adventurous enough to try mismatched pieces, you could put yourself in a difficult position. If you don’t like the way it looks you will probably have to put up with it for a few years. Many people are now foregoing the bathtub in favor of shower enclosure. They are stylish and convenient, and make good use of available space. Don’t go for basic white even though this might feel like the safer option. For strong design elements that last, explore some different color options.
Do you fancy brushed nickel, chrome or bronze? The choice of fixtures can make or break your bathroom décor, so choose wisely. These elements must co-exist with tiles, the paint job and the sink and bathtub or shower enclosure. These products now come with even more appealing features like no-touch operation.
The Tiles and Paints
It is easy to redo your paint, but the tiles are much trickier and expensive. The tiles must complement every other element in the space, and they help to balance the paint job. The bathroom should have a relaxing feel, so for both tiles and paints, choose cool colors that achieve this.
Lighting and Mirrors
It makes sense to consider these two together since you can now buy attractive lighted mirrors for your bathroom. For basic lighting, you want something that illuminates, but that does not overpower the room, especially if the space is small. Mirror options include floating and framed, and your choice will depend on the effect you want to achieve.
