Think Outside the Box: Go Beyond the Norm in Your Bathroom Remodel

Home RemodelTo create a bathroom sanctuary that exudes calm and relaxation as soon as you step inside, go for innovative rather than traditional design options. Here are a few out-of-the-box ideas to get you started:

  1. Replace Stools with Accent Armchairs

Say goodbye to that repurposed garden stool you keep in your bathroom tucked under your makeup counter. Replace it with an accent armchair that is made of raw wood and soft upholstery. An armchair will add a touch of grandeur to the design of your bathroom and make other elements pop – especially if the fabric is done in a muted color.

  1. Add Mirrors that Reflect your Aesthetic

Contractor-grade mirrors are practical and low cost, but they don’t do a whole lot for a bathroom’s décor. Pick an option that reflects your unique personality and adds a personal touch. Choose options that have unique shapes, framing, integrated lighting options, and/or a vintage quality to them. Elevate that by hanging the mirrors from ropes or on backdrop of backsplash tile or wallpaper.

  1. Use a Mix of Materials

Tiles are not the only materials you can work with in bathroom design. To make it really stand out, incorporate wood and glass or wood and marble elements to make stunning combinations.  The result is a solid foundation for your bathroom design, which is elegant and simple without being overwhelming.

  1. Don’t Be Afraid of Darker Colors

Light and bright colors can make your bathroom look pristine, but they can also make it look sterile depending on your light source – do you have a window that allows for natural light? Richer and darker colors can add a warming touch to your space. When going for rich dark tones, think beyond paint. Go with tiles that mimic concrete and contrast that with dark wooden cabinets or matte black plumbing fixutures.
