Calm. Meditative. Inspired. The bathroom of your dreams. Whether you’re thinking about making small upgrades or delving deep into a full overhaul, a bathroom renovation can make a big difference in how you feel about your home.
From modern and luxurious to fresh and Zen-like, when choosing a brand-new look, it’s important to make the most of your space. Create the bathroom of your dreams with these inspired design ideas.
If you’re into industrial-chic, vintage farmhouse, Italian Calacatta marble, coastal cozy or another fun style, you can customize every architectural detail to fit your theme. Yes, you can even make your cabinetry Calacatta marble… if that’s your design dream. A bathroom is one room that needs plenty of storage, but often doesn’t have the space for it. If your space is small, make the most out of it with floor-to-ceiling bathroom cabinetry.
Not Quite White
If you’re looking for fresh and modern with a twist of simple and clean, the not so white bathroom may be exactly what you need. Choose your favorite color and bring it down to its lightest (almost white) shade so it is barely there. One of our favorites is an oh-so-soft blue-green hue (like these sage bathroom cabinets) that is just colorful enough to catch attention, and yet not too far off from white. You’ll not only love it for years to come, but you’ll be able to match it with darker accent shades.
From an abundance of natural light, bamboo and natural wood décor to potted plants, pebble shower flooring and a view of Mother Nature outside, styling your bathroom with Zen accents can be calming, meditative and harmonious. Your bathroom can be the perfect place for a Zen-inspired theme, especially if you’re one to take a long soak in a warm bath. Don’t forget the mixed stone Zen indoor fountain to fully set the mood.
Another fun and fresh theme for your bathroom is to take it full-on bohemian chic. From funky vintage cabinets, a clawfoot tub, heavy brocade curtains and faux oriental rugs, to Moroccan mosaic tiles, oversized plants and an inundation of art, your bathroom will be the room everyone wants to escape to—and talk about every time they visit you. When you mix Bohemian with eclectic touches, you get nothing but inspired bathrooms.
Take a Chance
One of the smallest rooms in your home can be one of your biggest places to take a chance and dare to be a little different. Go elaborate – maybe some ornate wallpaper (yes, wallpaper), bold colors, unconventional hardware, eccentric and bold flooring. Take a chance and have fun with your bathroom. Start small with your half-bath… you can always redo it later.
