Are you planning to renovate your bathroom but not sure where to start? Or maybe you just love admiring pinterest and collecting ideas to plan your dream home. Whatever stage in your bathroom renovation journey you’re at, it isn’t just as simple as finding what you like and going for it. There are a few things that need to be considered; functionality, use of space and style of decor.
Less about trend, more about zen
Once you start putting together what your ideal bathroom will be like, it’s important that you think less about trends and more about what will create a zen space that works for you. After all, trends will come and go but you’re the ones that will be living in and using the space consistently.
So to help you plan, we thought we’d take a look at some of our favourite bathroom decor ideas.
Awash with the colour green
Add some colour to your bathroom routine with beautiful, bright green tiles. The tranquil and serene vibes are a timeless addition to any house, and for that reason we don’t think they’ll ever go out of style. And, depending on the shade of green you choose, you can create a soothing and relaxing vibe with a mossy tone or one that boosts energy and creativity with a bright lime green.
Mix and Match
There are many ways to mix and match throughout your bathroom. From different style tiles to complementing but different materials, don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit. It creates a beautiful look that will age gracefully. If you’re mixing tiles, pick one really unique one and then find one or two that either complement in colour or style.
Sometimes less is more, especially in a bathroom. So, don’t be afraid to take a more minimalist approach with a deliberately restrained palette which focuses on the materials chosen rather than the overall effect. Things like marble and oak with accents of black to add a touch of drama to a crisp, calm space.
Textures help to add more to a room. And when you combine texture and colour you create a timeless yet contemporary bathroom that’s edgy and sophisticated. Think large-format floor tiles with timber walls, bold and colourful bathtubs with green marble, corrugated iron-look walls with rose gold features, or charcoal walls with a touch of timber.
