How To Outfit A Bathroom
So you have a bathroom
in your house; probably more than one. While most people pay at least some attention to decorating the rest of their living space, the bath and shower are most often neglected. What can you do with it to make this room feel less like an afterthought and more like a part of your home?
The first question you need to answer is “What is missing?” What does the room lack? Does it need warmth? Does it need light? What about softness? Is it cozy or cold? Determining what kind of feel you need to create will not only help you with both the types of accents and accessories you choose, but with the overall color scheme of the room.Bathrooms
have certain necessities, including storage, a need that can be met with anything from shelving to cabinetry. And of course you need either a shower curtain or shower door to keep water where it belongs. Often shower curtains have entire coordinated sets that can serve as inspiration for the entire room.
Basics like bath rugs and towels should be incorporated into your design plan. Use the color of the bathtub as a guide to other colors in the room. If it’s plain white, you’re in luck, otherwise you have to work around what you’ve got.
Express your creativity by finding new and interesting ways to group and display old bathroom
standbys like towel bars, hooks and the like. Try arranging them on a single wall for a dramatic effect.
