Today’s bathrooms can be so much more than a place to shower & brush your teeth. Your bathroom can be a sanctuary—a place to relax and unwind; a place where you can luxuriate in a bubble bath; and even a place where you can get away from the kids, if you need a few minutes of “me” time.
And that sanctuary should be beautiful
Whether you want your bathroom to feel like you’re in a spa or you want something sleek and sophisticated, here are some trends and tips to consider:
- Elegant furniture: Sometimes, the real standout in a bathroom is the furniture. Elegant pieces such as a modern display cabinet can take your bathroom from average to the inspired.
- Vivid colors: When it comes to paint, why not go a bit bold, with a subtle dose of color. Vivid colors add a nice touch, but shouldn’t be too overwhelming.
- Textured walls: Wallpaper is being used more often, and some of the modern designs are simply gorgeous. If you don’t like wallpaper, textured tiles can give the space an immersive, visual appeal.
- Updated Southwestern: Southwestern style is colorful and funky, perfect for people who want something a little unusual. The problem is, a lot of Southwestern decor can feel a little … kitschy; but it doesn’t have to be. A terra-cotta bathtub and sink paired with teal walls can give you a modern version of this look.
- Wood floors: Wood floors in the bathroom used to mean impossible upkeep, but not anymore! Now you can buy ceramic or porcelain tiles that look exactly like the real thing.
- Embellished ceilings: If you’ve been ignoring your bathroom ceiling, you’re missing out on a great opportunity to add some visual appeal. An exposed wood ceiling absolutely pops against neutral tiles.
- Exotic themes: Colorful ceramics can spruce up any space, adding an exotic flair that will make you feel like you’re permanently on vacation. Big, bold, and beautiful tiles can create a beautiful focal point.
