Bathrooms are tricky things to decorate, especially when the costs are as low as $500 or less. This is why taking decorating a bathroom to the next level is a lot more difficult. There are many things to consider when choosing a bathtub, shower or towel set. It’s usually related to design, shape and extra features. In any case, there are a few things that are especially important when it comes to finding a set of bathroom accessories that you like or that you feel suits your bathroom.
The first thing anyone is interested in is the feel. To make the bathroom feel inviting and relaxing, it’s important to create a soothing ambiance. The bathtub, shower unit and all the other accessories should feel comfortable. So make sure the tub or tub you choose looks and is comfortable and you have a good choice for the washbasin.
If the bathroom is small, you can focus more on the functionality of the accessories rather than on the size but try to separate everything properly and to make sure the balance is nice. For example, not all the bathroom accessories have to be huge. Some can be as small as a tea pot, a water bottle and so on.
The contrast of colors can also be an important factor in the overall design and decor of the bathroom. This can be a good starting point. You can add a bit of color and pattern to the room with accessories and decorations such as wall decals or a cute, colorful shower curtain or towel rack.
The style is also important. It’s important in the bathroom to have a relaxing, soothing and serene design so take into consideration the colors, forms and textures used. The light fixtures play an important role as well. The light and the shade need to be chosen carefully. Too bright and harsh lighting can ruin the atmosphere.
Of course, at the end of the day, finding the right balance of colors, forms, shapes, textures, materials and styles is always important. You can see that in this bathroom which has a white walls and a relaxing and bright-colored flooring but that’s still quite neutral in terms of furniture, the decorations and the accent features.
This bathroom looks a bit like an oyster, with that accent wall and that cast of color. The bathtub is the centerpiece, featuring a lovely turquoise rim and the rest of the accessories complement it. The shower curtain matches the rims around the tub. Two round mirrors with colorful and friendly silhouettes are positioned on either side of the tub.
If you want your bathroom to be complete, then you must also take into account the lighting. Well-placed accent lighting will reflect light into the center of the room, creating a very pleasant atmosphere. In this case, the lighting is soft and just right for the tub, the sink and the vanity.
