Planning the decor of your dream bathroom or planning to have a bathroom remodeling, it can be an enjoyable task if you keep in mind some simple design tips that will help you select the best layouts, colors, lights, floors and other necessary bathroom items.
Design tips for your bathroom
When it comes to selecting an efficient layout, cost-effective bathroom designs include one or two-wall layouts. A one-wall layout is more limiting, while a two-wall one can be more flexible. If you are looking for a more versatile, yet expensive layout, a three-wall one is the one you should try. Regardless of your choice, consider turning to a bathroom designer for this job. Then, focus on designing a plan for bathroom lighting. The mirror is the best place to set the lights and it is recommended to have one light at each side of your mirror to eliminate shadows. You can use wall sconces or ceiling-mounted fixtures for general lighting. If you have an enclosed shower or bathtub, make sure to choose vapor-proof lights. Accent lights are ideal if you want to create mood and add more sparkle to the room. Another thing to use when you want to create a certain mood is color. You can choose whichever color you prefer when it comes to painting and fabrics, but the wood, tiles and stone that you select for your bathroom also come in different hues that help reflect your style and personality.
Choosing the best bathroom designs also means selecting the best flooring. Bathroom floors should be slip- and water-resistant, but they should also be luxurious and attractive. Ceramic tiles are the best solution for any bathroom, as they are durable, don’t get stained and are easy to maintain. The sink is another item that can change or improve the appearance of your bathroom. Integral sinks are easier to maintain, while self-rimming sinks are more affordable. Bathtubs also influence the decorating style of a bathroom, as they can be made from a large variety of materials including marble, tile and limestone. For relaxation purposes, you can choose a whirlpool or a soaking tub. A luxury shower can also help you maximize your relaxation time. If you want a water massage, you can opt for vertical rows of showerheads and if you want to get soaked from above, a ceiling-mounted rain shower may be ideal for you. You can also choose a handheld showerhead for directing the water spray better. Frameless glass doors will also improve the appearance of your shower cabin, especially if the walls of the cabin are made from luxurious materials such as marble tiles.
