The bathroom is often the most neglected room in a house when it comes to home decor. Most home owners decorate the rest of the house with great taste, but often cut their budgets when it comes to decorating the bathroom. Nothing can be more contrasting that a magnificently decorated home with a bland bathroom reflecting a poor taste. This contrast becomes even more evident in the face of the fact that the bathroom is used not only by the owners but also by guests. Hence, donning a bathroom should be given an equal thought, if not more, while decorating your homes.
A bathroom not only needs to be well-equipped with all the amenities, but it should also function as a cozy place where you can unwind yourself. You can easily change your bathroom into an exotic home spa by implementing some luxurious ideas. Themes are the latest ‘in thing’ in bathroom decorations. You can create your own theme and decorate the bathroom as per your taste. Here are some theme ideas to help you out.
You can create the feel of a seaside cabin in your very own bathroom. Install light blue colored tiles and paint the walls in the same color. Hang the frames of beautiful pictures of beaches or mermaids or aquatic life. You can even paste the photographs of your kids playing on a seashore making sand castles. Choose the color of towels in a shade of sand or taupe. Use bamboo racks to hang towels. You can also adorn your walls with wooden frames glued with seashells.
Classic Country Theme
This is a popular theme for both, home decor as well as bathroom decor. Start by installing tiles in the shade of earth or rust. Make ample use of natural wood. Get pieces of accent from antique shops and place them at appropriate positions in the bathroom. Cabinets and other furniture can be given an antique look by applying an antique stain to them and wiping it off before drying. You can also think about using barn boards as a substitute for picture frames.
If you are fond of a clutter-free bathroom with minimal yet classic decorations, this theme is probably for you. Install pearl white tiles and paint your walls in same dazzling white color. Keep the number of necessities as minimal as possible. Collect only those adornments that can go well with the style and class of your bathroom fixtures. Buy a silver-colored towel rack that can give a sparkling effect to the bath area. Go for pastel-colored towels for this kind of theme. It is important that you always keep the bathroom clutter-free and gleaming clean, else this theme would lose its charm.
If you are fascinated with all sorts of gadgets and are a die-hard James Bond fan, then you should opt for this particular theme. Though this theme won’t come cheap, it would fulfill your secret desire of stepping in the shoes of agent 007. You can buy a bathtub that has several temperature control units, and is intelligent enough to know the correct level of water to be filled in. There is also a range of smart toilets to choose from. These toilets are rightly called ‘marriage savers’ as they automatically lift their lid when the user approaches, close the seat upon usage and also clean themselves.
Besides the above mentioned bathroom decorating themes, you can also use your own creativity to design themes. If your budget doesn’t allow you to go for a particular theme, try changing the color of your tiles or applying fresh coat of paint to the walls. These little changes can do wonders for your bathroom without being too hard on your pocket.
