One spot in the house that everyone spends a fair amount of time is the bathroom. This room is functional in purpose, but that does not mean that it cannot look amazing.
Bathrooms contain unique fixtures different than is found in any other room. For your bathroom to sparkle, you need to incorporate these fixtures with a cohesive design. The color of the flooring combined with the type of décor you use will breathe new life into what could be a boring, ugly space in your home.
Here are five bathroom flooring ideas to make your room sparkle and shine.
1. Use Subtle Patterns
Incorporating slight patterns into your bathroom floor gives the room a touch of elegance. The patterns should not be overwhelming. Instead, they should add a touch of delicacy to your bathroom to make it look open and clean. Try patterns in the flooring or tub tiling. It’s best to look for natural patterns, such as in stone or granite.
2. Go Au Natural
If you want to create a modern, spa like setting, bring in natural colors and textures. Natural flooring colors with light brown and olive tones give your bathroom a cozy feeling without looking dirty or drab. When you add plants, and white porcelain fixtures to your bathroom you keep the room looking clean and comfortable. If you have windows, think about letting in the natural light. You can use either diffusing window shades, or add a privacy film to the windows so you can enjoy the light with privacy!
3. Sing The Blues
The color blue fits in seamlessly in a bathroom. It’s the color of water, so blue color-schemes brings out the elements used in the space. If you’re creating a blue colored bathroom use a either a light grey or blue stone color to enhance the look of your bathroom. The blue tint will come to life with blue walls and accessories while still giving your bathroom a stunning color scheme. And just because it’s a blue bathroom, doesn’t mean you have to make a nautical themed room, but that’s entirely up to you!
4. Go All White
To truly make your bathroom sparkle, stick with all white throughout the room. This means you’ll need white flooring, white fixtures, white cabinetry, and white linens. There is perhaps no better color scheme for making your bathroom shine because white symbolizes purity and cleanliness. Consider playing with different shades of white to add a little dimension to the room.
5. Create A Beach Retreat
Beaches are relaxing. If you want to create that same salty air feel in your bathroom, use beach décor. That all starts with the look of your flooring. Use a whitewash style flooring to make your bathroom feel like a trip to the beach. Then, incorporate seashells and nautical elements to make the décor come to life.
Although your bathroom might be small in size, your bathroom can have a bold personality with the right decorating scheme. Start your new bathroom-decorating project by replacing the flooring. The floors set the tone for your space and will bring your room to life.
