Planning a fresh new bathroom can be very exciting when you check out all of the glossy magazines featuring wonderful bathroom concepts. On the other hand, you do want to take care and not become caught up by the variety offered. Possibly you have always wanted a large walk-in steam shower, but when you only have a tiny bathroom with no hope for extending, then you might have to be satisfied with the type of shower that goes over bathtubs.
Moreover if you need to reduce your dreams slightly, a newly redesigned bathroom can still look fabulous with new decorations along with updated finishing touches. I know my bathroom looks so much fresher with just a coat of paint and new bathroom accessories.The main design and style of your new bathroom may well revolve around whether you are opting for a bath, a standalone shower or both. A classic bathroom with a claw foot antique bathtub looks amazing coordinated with traditional design decorations and accents, but won’t blend so nicely with an innovative steam shower.
In contrast if you should you favor a high tech, glass and chrome, shower enclosure, you could put together using a similarly current vessel sink, and minimalist bathroom fittings and accents for a totally modern bathroom redo.Aside from selecting your new bathroom fixtures you will also want to decide upon the exact bathroom decorations.Wall decorations in a bathroom will usually consist of mostly ceramic tiles, but here the choice is huge. A couple of totally different trends appear at the top of the list right now.
The first trend is for larger natural stone or marbled effect tiles completely covering the floor and all walls in a bathroom. Thus giving a really fresh looking room and is very low upkeep. However, should you choose all white or even grey stone appearance these could make the room feel cold and uninviting. Perhaps you may favor the pleasant sandstone colors in travertine tiles with the effect having tones of gold, cream and orange. The other very popular tiling influence is a total opposite with every surface tiled with tiny mosaic ceramic tiles in toning hues or to produce a design around the walls and on the floor. Personally I prefer to have my walls paintable at least halfway up, that way I can change colors whenever I choose.
