Spooky, Scary Gothic Bathrooms
With Halloween just a month away, it isn’t too early to start decorating for the best scary holiday. Stores like Michaels and Target were already setting up for the great ‘ol Halloween when it was still early August. So it’s only reasonable that you get started on one of the best American Holidays. If you are looking to keep the decorations subtle and tasteful, and not too overboard with the skulls and spiders, then the Gothic style is the one for you. Dark and dramatic, this still is known for its eerie yet sophisticated style that is synonymous with Edgar Allen Poe and The Addams Family. The Gothic design is defined for its mixture of humor and dark artistry and embraces the beauty of life and death and the glamour of dark colors. There is no need to paint everything black just to accomplish this style. Just a small, tasteful touch will add that ghoulish glamour to your space.
Here are four ways you can transform your bathroom into a spooky, scary gothic paradise, just in time for the creepy season.
To really embrace the gothic look, you are going to need to invest in some dark colors. Dark wood, deep purples and reds, and even small touches of royal blue are perfect ways to incorporate that gothic look into your bathroom without fully committing to that signature black color.

Black as the Night
Now, while black is the ultimate color of a Gothic style, you don’t have to paint everything in your bathroom black just to get the style. You can add touches of it to create that gothic atmosphere – a little bit of spooky gloom in a minimalistic way. Try incorporating a black faucet or hand towels to add that exquisite touch of modern goth.
You can never go wrong with a bathroom candle. Candles go with any style and any bathroom, so of course, dark candles are perfect for a gothic look. Add big black candles or small melted white candles to your bathroom to craft that dark, dramatic look in your bathroom.
Okay, don’t go looking on the internet for haunted items just to decorate your bathroom. Rather just invest in items that look like their antiques to help you cultivate a gothic look. Invest in a vintage faucet or use old antiques that have been hiding up in your attic to decorate your bathroom.
If your bathroom would allow it, look into clawfoot tubs to really get that gothic look in your bathroom. They have a vintage flair to it that will surely enhance the gothic drama of your bathroom. Not to mention, if you soak in one, you will surely feel like the gothic ghoul you’ve always dreamed of being.
