For bathroom decorations or remodeling, colors play a vital role. More than half the population wishes for a 'bit' larger bathroom, unless of course they are living in a custom-built luxurious home with a big bathroom. So, it is important to turn the existing bathroom into the perfect place to start the day.
To get the perfect colors, all you need is creativity with a sense of judgment of the bathroom color schemes and accessories. You should also know the important coloring norms. Colors have their own nature and moods which transpire to the surroundings. This makes our job more difficult as an amateur.
Coloring the Bathroom
Think whether you want the bathroom to be lively, relaxing, rich, or neutral; and start planning the colors accordingly. Make sure to use washable colors so that your bathroom coloring expedition is not a lost cause, after a single bath.
Make sure all your bathroom fixtures are well in shape, as you desire them to be and as per the theme you've previously decided. Avoid too much variation and always maintain uniformity.
A bathroom color theme is not limited to bathroom walls only; but it is also very important to keep color coordination with the plumbing fixtures, faucets, flooring, other accessories, cabinets, countertops, napkins, towels, and other decorative accents, like indoor plants.
Coming back to colors, always remember that warm colors energize the mood, while cool colors have a more relaxing effect. Complementary colors are also a good choice for a more creative, artistic and appealing look.
Contrasting colors give more of a dramatic look to the bathroom while contemporary colors give both a soothing as well as an energizing look to the bathroom; and make the person fresh inside out, every time he/she visits it.
Choose colors very carefully (needless to say - avoid any dark colors, strictly). Always go for cool colors, rather than warm ones as they add more serenity and spaciousness to small bathrooms.
As master bathrooms are more spacious than the other ones, there is a lot of scope for more creativity and experimentation. There are too many things that a person can try with the master bathroom, depending on its size.
Give some lavish window treatments and put a small couch in it (provided you have plenty of space). Go for neutral and/or cool colors, and make sure that they are soothing for the eyes.
Cream, white, taupe, light lavender, light blue, ocean blue, deep blue, royal blue, etc., would look fab for the master bathroom. For a neutral bathroom, paint the ceiling with darker shades you have already used for the walls.These colors must look familiar with bedroom colors portraying continuity.
Make sure to match the color with various exciting bathroom themes. Some of the kid's favorite themes include sports theme, aquatic and beach theme, creatures like monkeys, sharks, butterflies and frogs, rubber ducks, fairy tales, etc.
Many people argue about the need of the bathroom rugs, but in my opinion, they are quite an ordeal if one doesn't take proper care of them. Make sure to use appropriate bathroom lighting. Use adequate lights for the darker bathroom and dim lights for light themed bathrooms.
Hope the information proves helpful for all those looking for the perfect bathroom color theme. Those of you who are not DIY enthusiasts, could always try other easy options like hiring professionals and let them do their job to perfection. All the best!
