Design Ideas For Your Bathroom

Bathroom Color Ideas Are In Abundance

The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house. Since it has multiple functions, it should be a place which is comfortable and pleasing to the eye. For that reason, doing the research in discovering interesting bathroom color ideas is a good direction to begin with. Finding the right colors and accessories that complement each other are necessary in creating a whole, yet unique look. If you have one of a kind bathroom accessories, you may want to design your bathroom around these items. It is important to note, when considering which color or colors to use, to use both complimentary as well as contrasting colors. In this way, each of the accessories you decide to use will stand out individually and be appreciated, instead of blending in with its surroundings.

As an example, suppose you have chosen to use a dark gray stone for your flooring. In deciding what color to paint the walls, you may want to look at one of those tiles to see which lighter colors are within it. This is a way to meld the walls and flooring together. Sometimes, painting two opposing walls one color and the other two something different but complimentary can add the feeling of spaciousness even to small bathrooms, as well as to any room. In addition, it gives it an interesting look.

Another idea in choosing color for the bath, is using the fine art of faux finishing, which is alive and well in the 21st century. With the introduction of zero chemical paint products, not only will it be a healthy paint, suitable for babies, children and the elderly, but your bathroom will become a luxurious and multi-dimensional room. Using sponges and soft brushes, either one or multiple colors can be applied, which can give the walls a softness not always easily acquired by applying opaque paint.

Choosing a shower curtain in a warm natural fabric is one way to incorporate unique bathroom accessories, just as well as a beautiful painting. Antiques are a lovely addition to any bathroom, especially those with marble tops. There are recycled hardware stores that carry old, beautiful and unusual cabinet knobs and towel hooks which would give an old world look to the space you are creating. Don’t forget the neighborhood garage sales. You never know what you will find.

Whether you start by choosing the color first or work around accessories or a piece of furniture is not as important as staying true to how it feels to you. Caution goes out to listening to anyone other than yourself when deciding what you want your bathroom to look like. This is a private matter as you will be the one who will use it daily. By going to your neighborhood paint store, you will find an enormous array of bathroom color ideas. Always go with your guts, not your head and put the ones aside that do not give you a sense of peace or softness. Most of all, listen to your body, and let color relax your mind.
