Choose classic color schemes

There are colors that don’t go out of style. What are these colors that would be a good combination? White, black, and gray. Pick three colors for your bathroom. A great guide to achieving uniformity of the design is to follow the rule of three.

Keep the combination balance by relying on 70/20/10 color distribution. For the 70% of the room’s interior, use the lightest color. For the 20%, you may use the lighter one while for the remaining 10%, use the boldest of all three colors.

You can also use two neutral colors that would make your bathroom similar to what you could see in the hotel rooms. The vibes of the room should make you feel calm. The distribution for this two-colored washroom should be 70/30: the lightest one should get the 70% while the darkest should have the 30% of the proportion.

Add an interesting pop of color

If you will break the principles of design, you will end up surprising your guests. Breaking the rules when it comes to art can be a little bit good sometimes. Most especially if you know how to do it carefully. Just like what the designer did in these two bathrooms.

In a neutral and monochromatic colored bathroom, you can see that there was a pop of fuschia pink and tangerine, respectively. If you will going to take those bright colors off, you will realize that the room will just look dull and boring.

A bathroom is still a room. That’s why it’s okay to add some artsy things to decorating it. You can put a painting of yours or framed photos of your family. You can also add some oil canvas or calligraphy arts that could turn your bathroom into Millennialized–which is appropriate to the younger generation, most especially if you have Millennial children or you are a Millennial.

You can add these sketches or framed statements on the walls of your bathroom. It can be as humorous as these:

Instead of the usual type, putting the candles beside the sink, you can do new things to create a new look for your scented candles. You can hang it on the wall like on the second photo. You can also put it on a polygonal canister., depends on your style.

Scented candles, aside from the air freshener, can help increase the aroma inside the bathroom. Don’t use too much candle inside the bathroom. Strong smells can be a bit overwhelming to your nose. Stick with one specific style. The style of your candle must be similar to the overall design of your bathroom.

Similar to the presentation done on the sample photos, you can unwrap all your bathroom essentials and put it inside the container. You can mix the colors of the soap just like on the first photo but be careful not to over-do it. It’s safer if you will just stick with the plain and simple colors just like white.

Flowers can make the bathroom look classy and elegant. When you include an organic element on the bathroom, it can help in highlighting the liveliness and brightness of the room. You just need to choose the flower that has the right size and kind that would totally fit your bathroom.

Mirrors to set the mood

Considered as an important element in a bathroom, it’s no doubt that mirrors should be included in the list. No matter what the sizes are, you shouldn’t forget about the need of having a mirror inside your bathroom. After all, what is a bathroom that doesn’t have any single mirror, right?
