Designing a Bathroom that fits your Personality
The interior design of your bathroom should reflect your personality and style preferences.
Believe it or not, your character can help you determine the perfect color palette and decor options for any room in your home. Creating a personalized bathroom will help you feel more at home because it’s filled with designs and concepts that you love. Interior design can say a lot about the owner – a rustic, country bathroom, for instance, may reflect a laid-back personality of someone who enjoys the simple pleasures in life. It’s not always easy to translate your personality into your bathroom design, so here are a few tips to help you out:
Start with color
The color in your bathroom really helps set the tone for the rest of the space. Here’s a quick tip: Think about you favorite season and the colors that come with it. For instance, if you love autumn, opt for a deep and rich color palette filled with golden yellows and rusty oranges. But if you’re after a cooler, more calm effect in your bathroom, winter’s hues may be best. Opt for a mix of blues for a striking contemporary palette. Maybe you like spring best because that’s when nature really gets to show off with bright green grass and fresh flowers. If so, green might be more your style because it’s associated with the outdoors and the renewal of the spirit.
Sink and faucet finish
Next, turn your attention to your bathroom’s sink and faucet. Different finishes can evoke various styles and personalities. If you have a daring and bold design personality, you may gravitate toward antique bath fixtures with polished brass or copper. These finishes are darker and really cause your sink to become the main attraction of your bathroom. If you’re after a more subtle design, opt for easy-going finishes like polished silver or white porcelain – two finishes that can flawlessly blend into your bathroom for a luxurious and sophisticated look. Match your door and cabinet hinges and knobs with the rest of the finishes in your bathroom for a balanced and cohesive look.
From weathered wood and glass to tile and brick, there are many natural materials from which to choose. A bold personality may decide to create an accent wall with intricate brickwork or use vibrant colored tiles for a dramatic backsplash. If your style is more laid-back and subtle, keep your bathrooms simple and clean with a glass shower and warm wood flooring.
