Bathroom decors are usually so unremarkable and that’s a real shame because this space, like any other, has a lot of potential. We can think of at least a dozen ways to make a bathroom stand out and look beautiful and some of the ideas are actually very simple, affordable and customizable. There are many different ways to go about this task, each with its own unique characteristics. Check out some of our favorite ideas:
Using houseplants in general as decorations around the house is a great idea because they not only look fresh and vibrant but they also help purify the air. There are plenty of plants that suit the bathroom environment, enjoy the moisture and don’t require lots of sunlight to thrive.
Black frames give showers, doors and windows in general a very distinctive look. They’re a bit retro while also featuring industrial influences and that’s a very special combo which has a lovely effect on interior designs and decors or all types. Black frame showers in particular can become stylish focal points for bathrooms of all sorts of styles.
We can’t emphasize enough the need for proper storage in the bathroom. It’s good to have a variety of storage options that suit different needs and purposes. Bathroom shelves in particular can be super useful. They’re very practical and versatile and even though they don’t seem like a big deal they have a big impact on the room’s overall functionality and decor.
Pedestal sinks were very trendy for a while and recently we’ve been witnessing a comeback of this particular style. Given that nowadays these sinks are pretty uncommon, you can definitely take advantage of that to make your bathroom stand out and look special. You will however need to find alternative storage solutions for the room.
The modern bathroom vanity trend is more of less dominated by floating vanity designs which are highly appreciated for their ability to make rooms appear airy and spacious and for their lightweight and minimalist appearance. Add LED lighting to the underside of the vanity for a dramatic effect.
Speaking of accents lighting and dramatic effects, backlit mirrors make awesome focal points for modern and contemporary bathrooms. You can opt for white or colored lighting to make your bathroom look more futuristic and sophisticated. Some mirrors come with built-in LED lights but you can always add them yourself to pretty much any wall-mounted mirror if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to change the decor.
You can also reinvent your bathroom with a double sink vanity. There are many stylish designs to choose from and a lot of them show a perfect blend of looks and function, complementing their minimalism with smooth curves and seamless lines. Double vanities are actually a perfect match not just for master bathrooms but also for guest suites.
Freestanding bathtubs come in all shapes, sizes and styles. They’re timeless, elegant and also super versatile. They add a sophisticated note to a bathroom’s design whether it’s modern, vintage or traditional. Most modern freestanding tubs feature sculptural designs and in some cases innovative and unusual shapes.
Another way to achieve a sophisticated bathroom decor is by using marble. White marble with grey veining is particularly elegant and also quite popular and affordable. Marble tiles can be installed on the walls and floor of a bathroom to create a chic decor that envelops the room. For a more subtle look you can opt for marble countertops, washbasins or shelves.
Wall hung toilets
Just like wall-mounted vanities, wall-hung toilets allow bathrooms to look airy, spacious and breezy. They’re also very practical because they make cleaning easy and because it’s also easier to decorate around them. The water tank is hidden inside the wall which is perfect if you’re aiming to create a minimalist look.
There’s also something else that has a huge impact on the overall look and ambiance of this space: the bathroom tiles. There are a lot of different styles and options to choose from. To name just a few, subway tiles are timeless and classy and so are marble tiles while mosaics are perfect if you want to create a unique and eye-catching design.
