You may not be living in a home with a large bathroom, or even if you are, it may not look like the ones in these photos...BUT, you can steal some great ideas from these baths.
Short of a major demo and renovation job, these bathroom can inspire some simples ideas that you can use in your own bath, regardless of size:
-Use furniture to warm up your bathroom.
Even a simple wall mounted wooden cabinet for storage can really add a personal touch in a mostly clinical environment.
-Bring in nature.
Warm woods in flooring, walls or furniture pieces will help to make your bath feel less austere and more inviting. Even simple wooden accessories like wooden soap dishes and bamboo bath mats can make a difference.
This is always a great way to pull a space together and the bathroom is no exception.
Even is a small bath, changing out the cold and unattractive overhead light with a vintage/flea market OR yard sale chandelier can instantly give the boxy room immediate character. Adding an inexpensive, paintable ceiling medallion that you can pick up at your local hardware store as well, takes it to the next stylish level.
Just because it's a bathroom, there's no reason you can't use artwork/photos to make the room feel like it's a part of the rest of your home. Sometimes, our design style tends to stop at the bathroom door, use the rest of your home style to guide you in putting your bath together.
Don't think of it as your bathroom. Pretend you're designing your living room--bring in some large carved candle holders, add an ornate mirror, use texture and think of ways to make the space more interesting through color.
-Of course, Color.
I like white bathrooms.
Classic B&W white tile, white carrera marble, etc...BUT, color can be a great way to make your bath a very personal space that is part of your own style.
I know you've heard it before, but there's a reason for that...it works and it's an easy fix.
Change knobs, towels bars, even fixtures. It's a really inexpensive way to make the bathroom feels fresh and new without the cost and time of a major reno.
Be inspired to look beyond the basic box and four walls.
You can do this!
