Traditional, modern, and contemporary, the options continue when it comes to decorating your bathroom. Since the bathroom is one room in your home that’s frequently used, make sure you like the way it looks! Here, Merge Home gives six bathroom decorating ideas to help create the perfect bathroom.
One unique part of your bathroom, that you may have currently or not, is tile! One underrated design tip is considering what kind of tile you want to go for. A clean, white look could certainly brighten up your bathroom a lot. However, as you probably know, white shows everything – including dust and dirt. You may want to consider that aspect before choosing an all-white tile, especially if your floors seem to get dirty quickly. Other options include a stone look, bright colors, or a bold pattern. Stone-like marble and slate are modern and elegant looking, whereas blues and greens are fun and creative.
If you don’t want the long-term commitment of a unique, bold statement tiling, then a rug is your best bet! Choosing a rug with a pattern you like will not only prevent you from slipping on a wet floor but also soak up a lot of water from your shower! One tip with choosing a bath rug would be to make sure it’s machine washable. It is extremely convenient to throw your bathmat into the washer occasionally to make sure you’re keeping it clean – which will help the rug maintain its look.
Lighting is by far one of the most important parts of your bathroom. This is where you look in the mirror most, whether you are putting on makeup, fixing your hair, or getting ready for the day, your lighting needs to be bright! It is best if your bathroom has windows to allow natural light to shine through, but if not, there are plenty of lighting options to imitate that brightness. You can purchase bulbs labeled “daylight,” these
generally have a color temperature of 5000K to 6500K, or bulbs labeled “cool white” or “bright white,” with a color temperature of 3500K to 4100K. These options are best for the bathroom because of the high amount of light they put off. This is also a way to show off your style! If you’re going for more of an elegant, classic bathroom maybe consider attaching lights directly around your mirror. Hotels are known for having these kinds of looks in their bathroom, and the lighting is always wonderful. Sconces are also a way to get creative with your lighting, from industrial looks showing the lightbulb, or a classic shaded scone. Either way, these options will help create the perfect bathroom by simply adding a touch of good lighting.
There is truly no space that fresh flowers cannot perfect and complete. An even better touch is having a beautiful antique vase like this to hold your fresh flowers. This not only gives your space a nice look but provides a great smell while boosting your mood!
Countertops and Vanity
One of the main pieces in your bathroom is the countertop above your vanity. Typical countertops are normally white, or some sort of marble stone. This can easily complement your choice of tile! If you decide on white tile to go for a clean, elegant look, then marble or some sort of bright countertop would fit well in the space. Also, when considering your vanity, you definitely need a piece with plenty of storage. Multiple cabinets, drawers, and maybe even a built-in shelving system! This can take your dream bathroom to the next level by giving it a clean, organized look. It will not only help you stay put together, but it will also provide a relaxing space for you.
The Finishing Touches
Of course, you can’t forget the last little touches of making the perfect bathroom – the decorations. Depending on the size of your bathroom, you may have a space to fill with decorations you love. One of our favorite ideas is this sapling sculpture. One of the reasons is because it does not take up much space at all, since it’s vertical, and it is beautiful. This sculpture, along with marble countertops and natural light shining in would create the perfect bathroom.
