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 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.
You can also use wood for the vanity and accessorize it with a beautiful sink also made from natural materials. An interesting and beautiful option would be stone. A stone sink placed on top of a wooden vanity would look very chic but, at the same time, it would help create a natural and simple decor.
