Even in the most stylish home, sometimes the bathroom gets overlooked. After all, it is usually not the first room shown to guests. However, sprucing up a shower can be done relatively quickly, and the result is well worth the effort. Not only does a contemporary bathroom give your home an air of sophistication, but it also will add value to the house. If you wish to add elegance and style to your Bathroom Decor, here are some ideas.
Lighting: Sometimes the simplest things make a big difference. For starters, you may want to get rid of the general overhead light that most bathrooms are equipped. Often this lighting is stark and unappealing. Instead, install softer lighting that focuses on the areas that will be used most, such as the bathtub and sink. Soft light for these areas can attain through wall dimmers connected to a lighting source. Sometimes a small table lamp on the sink countertop will also do the trick. Lovely wall sconces can be used on the sides of the mirrors as well. Another idea to consider is placing a sink in front of a window to take advantage of the natural light. The mirror can put on another wall near the sink. Before you begin remodeling, make sure to check your lighting plans with an electrician or light specialist. The wiring should all be installed carefully behind the walls so no cords or wires show, as this would ruin the elegant effect.
The Sink: The hand washing area of a bathroom is perhaps the most noticeable. The sophisticated bathroom you are creating should preferably have two sinks. They can be placed next to each other on a long countertop, or you can set aside a place on each side of the room for separate sinks. That way, each person will be able to use his or her tub with plenty of elbow room. If you have enough floor space, another option is to install elegant pedestal sinks. These will create a more open look for the bathroom, but since they lack storage space, separate cabinets will also be needed. Pedestal sinks are available in a variety of designs, both traditional and contemporary. Of course, no tub will look great if it places in a plain countertop. Marble countertops nicely complement the shiny metal of pans and always provide an elegant look. The color should not stand out from the greater scheme of the bathroom.
All sorts of designs and materials are available, including hand-blown glass, marble, gold-leafed glass, or other metals. It is essential to make sure the bowl will be at a convenient height to use if you choose this type of sink.
Mirrors: Most bathroom Mirrors are rather dull and austere. To fix this, swap the large, frame less mirror that is probably in your bathroom with a beautifully framed mirror. It is incredible how a finely framed mirror adds an artistic touch to the room.
Furniture: Nothing makes a bathroom feel more comfortable than adding a well-placed piece of furniture. It could be an armorer or chest to hold towels, or a simple bench or lounge chair to relax in. Of course, this requires a certain amount of free space, but the furniture does not have to be large and imposing.
Fabrics: Not to be forgotten are the fabrics that adorn every bathroom. From upholstery to window curtains, the type of material chosen can make the difference between classy and hideous. If you have toilet seat cover, pick something soft and luxurious. Even Shower Curtains can provide an accent of style if it matches the fashion of the rest of the room.
