Bathroom Decoration Ideas
Having the right bathroom decorations makes the difference between a bland bathroom, and one that actually shows how much you care about the way that your house looks. Remember, your bathroom decorations show off your tastes as much or more as the layout of the rest of your house, so you should really do all that you can to make sure that everything is looking just splendid.
Of course, bathroom decorations are not just a matter of finding any picture and putting it up. Sure, having pictures as part of bathroom decoration is a good idea, but you really need to have just the right taste to get the look that you need for your bathroom. Whatever you put up has to be soothing, yet also show your good taste.
Truly the most obvious of all bathroom decorating ideas - paint a fresh, clean color. If you're a resourceful and energetic homeowner, you might want to tackle repainting the bathroom in a weekend. The job itself really won't take too much time, and the results will be worthwhile. If you're adventurous, try one of the many faux finishes that will make your walls really distinctive. And, if your walls are in good shape, it's not hard to stencil a simple border or design around the baseboard, mirror, ceiling, or window. This project will add a pattern to the room and help to either introduce a theme or enhance a theme that you've chosen. Choose colors for the stencils that will catch the eye. Also, consider a contrasting color for the baseboard.
Paper the walls. Wallpapering is not a job for the faint at heart; but a small room like a bathroom is a good place to start. Choose paper that is made to withstand humid areas and pick the appropriate paste. You'll need to shop for and order the paper well ahead of time. If the whole bathroom seems like too big a job, paper on one wall will really update and transform the space. Add a border paper. Border wallpapers are sold by the yard and can be custom-ordered or purchased from the in-stock section of the home store. A border 6" to 12" below the ceiling, around a mirror, above wall tile, or bordering a doorway adds interest. When choosing a border to go all the way around a mirror, be sure you select one that looks good upside down. And either hand-cut around a pattern or mitre the corners for a professional look.
A very basic bathroom suite is a toilet, a washbasin and a bathtub with matching taps and handles. However, there are more appliances, such as bidets, and extra items like bathroom cabinets, sauna room, mirrors and storage solutions for the toiletries and other bathroom paraphernalia. For a long time, if you wanted to enjoy the benefits of a sauna, you had to find a local gym or other facility that offered such luxuries. Many people often did this, as there are several health advantages associated with such comforts. In more recent years, however, it has become quite possible to add a sauna, or a sauna alternative to your own home.
While it is true that adding a sauna can be a major undertaking, it might not be as difficult as you think. Today, there are many different types of home kits available. These sauna kits come pre-fabricated, and are equipped with detailed instructions outlining what you need to know before you begin, and how to construct the actual sauna. The more difficult part is doing your homework before you begin.
Bathroom cabinets play a major role in maintaining an organized bathroom. Add a small piece of furniture. Even if your bathroom is small, you could probably find room for a small shelf or chest. Extra attention is paid to details such as outlets inside tower cabinets for hair dryers, electric shavers or other electrical appliances, as well as ironing boards and hampers built inside closets. Also, top cabinets hide bathroom clutter while offering access to everything. The side cabinet, from the floor to hip level, is one of the latest trends. It comes with a washbasin and shelves to store the daily toiletries like the toothbrush, toothpaste, soaps and more. In the cabinet one can store towels and other linens.
The design of any bathroom will always include bathroom storage. One can find a combination sink/vanity for extra storage. A great bathroom design idea is that one can never have too much bathroom storage! One has to use the wall space wisely, with shelves or cabinets over the commode or almost anywhere in the bathroom. One can consider using corner shelves, and hanging towel bars above one another. Also, one can add a medicine cabinet with a mirror to the bathroom to store grooming supplies, medicine or toiletries. Traditionally, the medicine cabinet was always located above the vanity or sink, but nowadays one can place it elsewhere in the bathroom. One can also add a shower caddy to the corner shower for extra storage.
