Choose the color of your bathroom is more than a fashion or style, is directly to your tastes and preferences. This year has become very fashionable super hot colors, like orange or terracotta red color gamut. But eventually you have to choose you.
Just as it is very important when choosing the color of your bedroom, because it is a very personal, at least I think so, the bathroom should give you a sense of relaxation and comfort. If you have trouble deciding on the color, you can inspire a fixture or a towel that you have seen while shopping and that got your attention.
If you prefer the traditional
In particular, in the past decades, it was common to enter a bathroom and all the furniture along the walls and the tiles were spotlessly white. This gave a total feeling of cleanliness and freshness. However, today many people related rather to a hospital environment and therefore lost popularity.
Now, talking to Karina Gamarra, interior designer, told us that this trend is coming back, especially for those who prefer a minimalistic environment. If you have decided to be white, you have many options through accessories in another color (shower curtain, dispensers, soap, mirror, towels …) that will give greater life.
The other option are fairly classic blue colors on walls and furniture for their relationship with water and sky, in addition to its relaxing effect. Blue, green or turquoise near the far dark blue colors remain favorites to this environment in which one seeks to relax with a long shower or a bubble bath.
The blue color conveys harmony, balance, peace and therefore even for Feng Shui trend is the favorite shade. I opted for the blue in my bedroom because it relaxes me a lot.
The range of colors
Not necessarily your bathroom has to be monochromatic, ie a single hue. It has become very popular to use two-tone or hue combined full color, from deep tone until smooth. Karina Gamarra says that you can choose different colors, but that is not a rainbow, but are colored the same range.
A combination that became widely used and that never gets old is the type chess: white with black. This style gives a sober and elegant at the same time.
No need to change the floor if you wish, but to incorporate certain elements in black, like the lid of the toilet, a table, mirror frame, shelves or a rug on the floor of pictures. This particular style I love, so that’s the one I have chosen in my bathroom.
Note that the color white is easier to combine, but is not the only option. You can also try two colors that complement as green and blue, brown and gray, orange or pink.
The fire colors like red, yellow and orange are the ones who this year are being palms. You may think you are extremely bright colors for any room in the house, however, work quite well in the bathroom. If you’re still scary, you can use to complement a neutral color like beige or white.
For example, one option is to paint the walls white and orange accessories include only two or painting walls white and two orange. Do not forget that beyond what is in vogue, it is important that you apply your own taste.
Mirrors to decorate and show off!
Another strong element in the trend for this year’s bathrooms are the mirrors, in addition to its utilitarian use have become important to have a decorative role. You will not have limits on them: square, round, sinuous forms.
This year the vintage style is a lot of attention but in general also depend on your taste. It breaks up the monotony! For example, if you share the bath with your partner, you can use a different mirror to each according to his personality.
How to manage the color based on space?
Regarding the size of your bathroom, you must also keep in mind that colors can help you. If you choose a light color will give you light and airy, keep that in mind especially if the window is very small. A good trick, for example, is that if the ceiling is low, use a light color on it to create higher.
Do not worry if you want to paint at least one wall a darker color a little, it will greatly reduce the ratio. Another good trick is the mirrors! In a medium or large, will serve to open space.
Now if you have a larger environment and want to make it more comfortable using a slightly darker color. In these cases we recommend for example woody tones in real estate.
Accessories for your bathroom!
If you want to change the style of your bathroom, do not necessarily have to paint the walls. Bathroom accessories can complement perfectly the color and with it the feeling you want to generate.
In this sense, you do need to use all your imagination. Take a walk through department stores or by the specialist in decoration. Karina, our expert interior designer, agrees that “the accessories do not depend on the color of the walls depends on the touch that you want to give the environment”.
- If your style is totally free and I like to break with tradition can opt for a set of accessories like this:
- If you’re a mom, maybe you want to encourage your children to bath time becomes a fun time.
- If yours is the natural wave, you may prefer a bamboo accessories.
Just as these will surprise you all the elements that exist in the market so you can give another side to the coin, but do not overdo it! Find the essentials, remember that designers always say that “less is more”, especially when it comes to tight spaces. If you cram the place of items, chances are that you reduce the visible space.
Among the decorative items you can find to match colors are the bathroom floors, shower curtains or bath, and soap dispensers, paper, towel racks, mirrors, organizers and more.
