The bathroom is one of the most visited rooms in the house, for you and your guests, but sometimes it can be the most difficult to make stylish. With things like the toilet and the sink in it, it doesn't seem like a particularly beautiful room and as it often gets wet with water from the shower or sink or from wet feet or hot steam, it is not easy to put a lot of precious decorative items in there where they can get soggy and ruined. But, there are a few things you can do to turn your bathroom into a very elegant and lovely room in your house.
First, focus on a theme that you want. A bathroom with a carefully chosen and designed theme is one that will catch the eye of anyone who uses it and will be pleasant to see. Choosing a theme is easy if you keep the owner in mind. For children, think of themes that they can still use as they grow, so try to avoid cartoon character themes or very loud or childish types, as that can often look tacky and will get grown out of within a few years. For children, some general type themes that work well are sailboat themes, flower themes, butterflies, beach themes, or sea shells. These kinds of general themes all have to do with water, in a way, which reflects nicely with all of the water that is present in the bathroom. For adults, themes can be more elegant, and can be chosen based on color more than an object.
If you want a more modernized bathroom, you would choose themes that maybe have abstract shape designs or sleek metallic colors, and if you want a more elegant bathroom theme, then coral colors or rich Victorian styles will be suitable. Once you know exactly what style you want your bathroom to be, everything else falls into place.
First, choose bathroom mats and toilet seat covers that match with the color you have chosen. You want both the cover and mat to match each other as too many colors in a small space will be too clashing and unpleasant. If you wanted a Victorian theme, then rich burgundy or deep blue or even hazel colored mats will be excellent for this purpose. Keeping the theme in mind, choose a shower curtain that matches, as well. Think of the shower curtain as an entire wall of your bathroom. It is very important that you choose one that matches otherwise an entire portion of your bathroom will not match and will be a sore thumb. Whether you choose a transparent one or a solid colored one, make sure that it matches your theme.
Next, choose bathroom soap dispensers and toothbrush holders that match your theme, as well. These should all match one another and if they bear some colors of your bathroom mats or curtain, you are on the right track. These are like the centerpieces and need to match and not be conflicting with the style. One of the most important things, are the towels. You use towels, dry them, etc, but these are not the ones that are most important. You need to have a set of elegant display towels that hang on the rods and are never to be touched or used. These are solely for show and are meant to match the color and style of your theme.
