Help your bathroom look like an extension of your living room
People are spending more time lounging in their bathtubs these days. The room is being used as a relaxing oasis in addition to a functional space. This means the bathroom has to be inviting and incorporate the warmth that is present in other rooms. One way to achieve this is by mimicking the look of your living room right inside the bathroom. Here’s how to do it:
Start by incorporating ornate fixtures into your vintage bathroom design. This begins with a clawfoot tub. The basin has decorative claw feet that are available in a range of colors including polished brass, polished chrome and oil-rubbed bronze. The antique bath fixtures that are made to match with this cast iron tub are ornate as well. They have a vintage appearance with round lines and decorative features. Opt for a freestanding faucet setup to really make your fixtures stand out. Also, you have the opportunity of selecting a handheld shower head for a more luxurious bathing experience.
Bring in furniture that is similar to the seating in your living room but not identical. For example, if your sofas have a herringbone fabric then you might want to select an armchair with the same material. Additionally, you can incorporate the same colors into the design. The best furniture pieces for the bathroom are plush chairs, chaise lounges and tufted benches.
Add a rug to incorporate a bit of softness into the room. For a statement look, opt for a bold color like red or deep purple. However, a cream or white rug is perfect for a monochromatic color scheme.
Mirrors are a part of any successful interior design plan. The mirrors in the bathroom should have ornate frames so they serve a design purpose in addition to being functional. An oversized floor mirror makes a grand statement when placed near a clawfoot tub. For another option, you can hang a large wide framed mirror near the wall behind your basin to make the focal point more impactful.
A bookcase or wall-mounted shelving can help make the room feel more complete. You can place books and magazines on this surface or simply fill it with vases, stylish storage containers and other trinkets.
Just like you might add plants to your living room, consider incorporating them into your bathroom decor as well. They bring a touch of color and fresh air to the room.
