Whether you have a large bathroom or a small one, there are many ways in which you can decorate a bathroom. Remodeling and decorating a bathroom, be it the master bathroom or a guest bathroom is one of the most expensive projects in home remodeling. You will not only need to decide on the strictly utilitarian aspects of a bathroom like bathroom sink, and vanity, but you will also have to choose carefully the wall colors, bathroom fittings, shower curtains and tiles. By giving due thought while decorating a bathroom, you can transform the décor of your bathroom.
Bathroom Decorating Ideas
Decorate with Color
The best way to transform a dull bathroom and spruce it up is to opt for colors. Instead of going for the usual off white or ivory for the bathroom walls, choose sorbet colors like watermelon pink and pistachio green. These colors inject warmth to a bathroom and make it look more airy. You can also go for citrus colors like lime green, yellow or even orange. If you are too conservative too use such bright colors, then opt for white walls and tiles in the bathroom and add color to the room in the form of bright accessories such as towels, rugs, mugs, shower curtains and a few planters.
Opt For Mosaic Tiles
Installing tiles is one of the best ways to decorate a bathroom. To give a whimsical and modern vibe to the bathroom, opt for mosaic tiles. These tiles are easy to install and they look amazing. Use mosaic tile patterns to create decorative borders on the bathroom wall and floor. Contrasting colors such as apple green and dusty pink works well. For a more dramatic effect, opt for red and black matte tiles.
Add Interest with Wall Patterns
Another great way to decorate a bathroom is to opt for a stenciled walls or a textured wall. Paint three walls of your bathroom in a solid color such as eggshell blue, peach or light yellow and then stencil the fourth wall in a favorite pattern. You can choose any pattern like a geometric or a tribal pattern. A patterned wall adds interest to a bathroom and makes it look more luxurious.
Decorative Shelves and Fresh Flowers
To store your toiletries, towels and other essentials, you can install beautiful decorative shelves on one of the walls of the bathroom. Antique shelves made with brass or wrought irons are the right choice and they give your bathroom décor a chic and stylish look. Decorate the shelves with vases filled with fresh flowers or small tubs filled with plants. A bit of nature in your bathroom will give it a fresh look.
Choose Funky Wall Art
Most homeowners neglect to adorn their bathroom walls with wall art. But, a large modern print framed on a blank wall of the bathroom can add interest to the room. You can also choose to install a three to four small framed artwork on the walls. Opt for brighter wall art (not garish) wall art instead of more restrained and sophisticated pieces of art.
These were some ways in which you can decorate a bathroom. Make sure that each décor element goes with the overall décor of the bathroom.
