Paxton Miller. Bathroom. September 27th , 2017.
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.
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.
If replacing your bathroom’s suite is a little too much to take on straight after the Christmas frenzy, why not bring a little fun to your washroom by updating your choice of wall coverings. Add a selection of random tiles to your walls, and floor, so that you get a vibrant look. Alternatively, use a novelty bathtub and link it, visually, to your wall with a mural or by having some bespoke wallpaper made, like this wonderfully strange cow design. Alternatively, use the tiles themselves as a mural. Many tile manufacturers will be able to give you a range of tile finishes that will suit your mural design ideas. If you don’t have the budget for an extensive makeover in the New Year, update your bathroom with a few well chosen accessories. How about a simple wooden bath tub caddy? They are ideal if you like to have a drink or a book with you when you bathe and great if you want to balance a mirror to shave. There are some cool bath mats available these days which will update your washroom with a minimum of expenditure, but choose one that matches your towels.
A room starts to get its identity as soon as you paint the walls or apply the wallpaper. So some wallpaper with a bold pattern or color could definitely make your bathroom stand out. You can experiment with all sorts of combinations using swatches and find the one that you think would best suit your bathroom. The bathroom is one of those rooms where you feel more connected to nature in comparison with the living room or bedroom. So you can exploit this concept and try to use natural materials such as stone or rocks to create a small pathway on your bathroom’s floor. It would be just for decor and it would have a very nice impact. A vintage vanity.
