Bathroom Design Ideas to Invigorate or Relax

If you are looking to renovate or update your bathroom, here are several bathroom design ideas that may help you formulate your vision for your dream bathroom.  The bathroom is a space that we may frequent often, but it is not generally an area that we stay for long periods of time, such as in a living room or a kitchen.   For this reason, it could be that the bathroom or powder room is a space where you are more daring with your color or pattern choices. Or, for a more relaxing space, go with the neutrals.

Focus and Relax with Neutrals

People often overlook the one place in the house where peace and quiet can usually be found.   Neutral colors and tones are a great way to create a calm environment.

Like kitchens, white bathrooms are a popular classic.   Large, white square marble tiles with grey veining line the shower walls.

Invigorate with Color

Consider bringing in the colors of nature to start your day with crisp and cool invigoration.

• Greens in the colors of gardens and meadows invoke spring and coordinate well with plants that can keep the bathroom lively.
• Blues in hues of ocean waves and tropical locations will make you reminisce fondly about vacations past, and eagerly look forward to vacations ahead.
• Yellows from pale walls to bright borders will bring about the natural joy of the sunshine and the beauty of fresh flowers.

Soaker and Freestanding Tubs

At the end of the day, we simply want to de-stress and download all of the events that we enjoyed, or endured. The perfect way to relax and prepare your mind and body for sleep is by soaking in a hot bathtub. If you plan to make only one change to update your bathroom, consider an oversized soaking tub as the perfect investment.

A hot bath can not only relax the body, it can relax the mind as well, preparing you for a good night’s sleep. Adding a bath pillow, some scented bath oils and lighting some candles can only add to your relaxation. Many bathrooms regardless of size can accommodate one the many styles on the market today.

Bathroom Lighting

Bathroom lighting can be one of the most intimate and stylish things you can change in your bathroom. Though you can add track lighting or purchase a lighted vanity, never underestimate the power of lighting.

Wall Sconces and vanity lighting fixtures

• If your bathroom has enough space, a floor lamp in a corner can make the bathroom feel welcoming and cozy.

• Even a chandelier can find new life in bathrooms with high ceilings, just be sure to abide by electrical codes.

 

Bathroom Wall Mirrors

Wall mirrors will not only make your bathroom look bigger, but they can reflect the lighting to make your bathroom brighter and feel more natural.

Consider a wall mirror over the tub if you have a separate shower area, a vertical mirror on an empty wall near the entryway, or even taking out that old medicine cabinet and replacing it with a larger mirror for more room to get ready.

Wall-Paper

There are many designs to choose from. Printed ferns, seashell and beach prints, or geometric patterns are updated to meet modern expectations.

You may even consider a combination of paint and wallpaper.  Make one wall the accent wall using wall-paper.

In areas of high humidity and moisture, you may want to check that the particular wall paper is suitable to handle such conditions.

 

 

 

Other Bathroom Accessories

Of course, there are many luxury additions that you can consider, such as a gas fireplace, a sound system, or even a television, but consider what is most important to you and take it from there.  These are just a few bathroom design ideas to consider.  You want this important room in the home to fit your needs and help you to find peace and comfort just when you need it the most. And it won’t hurt a bit to have your guests exclaim what a beautiful bathroom you have. Just be careful that they don’t spend as much time in there as you do.
