The rules and options of decor apply to bathrooms as they do any room. Dress up your bathroom with color, pattern, and accents using these bathroom decorating ideas.
While space constraints and moisture concerns can restrict bathroom decorating, there are still plenty of ways to add personality to your bathroom.
Perk up an all-white bath with a single color. Choose a favorite hue and decorate with it throughout your bathroom. Bring in vibrant towels, bath mats, shower curtains, and accessories, all in the same color for a quick and easy bathroom decorating update.
Step out of boring and into an exciting new bathroom with a pretty patterned shower curtain. It will instantly perk up your bathroom and can help you make wise decorating decisions in the rest of your bathroom. Pick a color from the curtain to use on the walls and in accessories. Pick a coordinating color that isn't in the pattern for contrast. Here, a robin's-egg blue cools down the warm yellows in this bathroom.
No matter how small or awkwardly laid out a bathroom is, it still has walls, which are basically blank decorating canvases. Get creative with paint: Apply a neutral color partway up the wall, install molding, and paint the rest of the wall a different color. Take another step and apply the second color across the room's fifth wall, the ceiling.
Wainscoting, board-and-batten, wallpaper, or a stenciled pattern, such as chevron or stripes, are all guaranteed ways to wake up walls.
Artwork has a place in the bathroom. From a singular, large stretched canvas to a series of small framed prints, artwork can evoke a decorating style, add dimension to blank walls, and contribute color. Take care to protect your artwork from moisture.
Tile has a place on floors, walls, showers, tub surrounds, and more. Use this versatile material to dress up your bathroom with color and texture. In addition to style, tile can also handle the moisture from bathroom water sources. For floors, install tiles with texture or small tiles. Both texture and the volume of grout lines between small tiles with help make floors less slippery and reduce the risk of falls.
