Bathroom is probably the most functional room in your house. Every object has to be there for a reason, you can’t afford to waste the limited space on useless stuff.
However, such functionality doesn’t necessarily mean that your bathroom has to look boring. In fact, there are many ways to turn your bathroom into the most stylish part of your house (even if it’s teeny tiny). Whether you’re planning a bathroom remodeling or just looking for fun ways to freshen up your bathroom, we are sure these 5 beautiful bathroom styles will inspire you with some fantastic design solutions.
A classic bathroom is elegant and fresh. The crisp white or cream of the wall and floor tiles is usually balanced by a few black, brown, dark red or green details. Natural or faux natural materials such as granite, slate, or stone are used for counter-tops; sinks and baths are porcelain. Metals are also key to a classic bathroom design: faucets, lamps, and furniture hardware are often iron, copper, or oil-rubbed bronze.
A vintage bathroom is all about furniture and accessories rather than color and material choices. Vintage decor features elements that either come from or are inspired by design trends that are less than 100 years old. Decor elements that look like they were made at any point between 1920’s and 1950’s are especially popular at the moment. Mirrors, hair brushes, and other styling tools from the days long past work well to create an elegant vintage bathroom, especially when placed on unfinished wooden furniture. And old movie and recruitment posters as well as old advertising artwork are a fun and colorful way to add even more history and charm.
The best words to describe a contemporary bathroom are minimal and clean. A contemporary bathroom usually features a number of the newest materials available; the furniture and sanitaryware has angular lines and soft curves. The color palette of a contemporary bathroom is very light, and there is a lot of glass, mirrors, and other reflective surfaces, which create an illusion of openness and spaciousness, making contemporary style a great choice for a small bathroom.
A masculine bathroom is all about dark hues, strong details, and rectilinear accents. Masculine bathrooms use different materials, but the colors are invariably moody: dark green, brown, red, or black with only a few splashes of white. Rich tones of dark wooden and metal elements also work well to create a bold and stylish bathroom.
A rustic bathroom should feel like you’ve brought outdoors inside, therefore it makes generous use of wood and other organic materials. Unfinished hardwood floor, earthy browns and greens on the walls, and hand-distressed metals create a warm and cozy feel. Real plants and paintings or photos of local wildlife also work well with the rustic theme.
If you want your bathroom to feel welcoming and lived-in, definitely go for shabby chic. Mismatched furniture sets that have aged naturally or have been manually distressed create a bathroom that feels well-used and well-loved. Throw in a bit of metal and some vintage accessories and you’ll get a bathroom that is chic and laid-back at the same time.
