Bathroom. Sunday , October 01st , 2017 - 08:58:37 AM
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.
Most powder rooms will be short on space and have enough room for a toilet and wash hand basin only. Toilets don’t vary very much but by introducing a non-standard basin into your room’s design you can set the tone for the rest of the decor. If you find the right hand basin, that suits your tastes, it will be a good starting point for the rest of the design. White porcelain hand basins are perfectly fine, but they are ubiquitous. Consider another material instead. Wood, plastics and brushed metal are all very good alternatives. And if you decide that you want to stick to the classic porcelain basin, why not go for a more unusual shape to make it a bit more of a feature?
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.
