Bathroom. Wednesday , October 11th , 2017 - 16:43:58 PM
The heart of your bathroom is the bathtub. If you have a freestanding bath, one that is not recessed or positioned next to the walls, then why not go for a red one? An old fashioned claw footed bathtub can be given a highly contemporary twist with a splash of red to update it. Complete the look with a funky wallpaper design or some red tiles on either the floor or the walls. Going heavy handed with red can make for a bathroom that is too oppressive, visually speaking. Nevertheless, with a subtle touch a very red bathroom can be pulled off. Select small tiles that have a highly reflective surface so the color does not appear to be even in all light conditions. Use plenty of light fittings, which should be bright white, and set to shine over the red surfaces. Break up your red walls with sections of pure white. Go for a white floor and white closet doors.
Even though it’s less common than the living room fireplace, when you think about it, a fireplace in the bathroom seems like a very natural addition. It makes the room feel warm and cozy and it’s just the type of atmosphere and decor a bathroom should have. Of course, the bathroom should be spacious enough to accommodate the fireplace.
If you like red, but think it won’t work in your bathroom, try using it within horizontal plane so that it does not catch the eye fully in a way that an upright surface, like a wall, will. A bright red counter top, in to which your basin is sunk, makes for an ideal starting point with crimson colors. Indeed, you could stop just with single red counter top. But, to set it off nicely use matching light fitting or two or, alternatively, buy some bright red towels to fit in with the look. If you know anything about interior design, it will be that red works well with both black and white. If your want to combine the three strident colors in your bathroom stick to some simple rules. Allow white to be the dominant color, covering the ceiling and most of the walls. Use black and red together, set against the white. Black floors look good in bathrooms. Use red and black next to one anther in a busier arrangement than you would for the white. Mosaic style red tiling with black grout looks good, as does red and black wallpaper set against a marble white decor.
