Remodeling Bathroom with Style: 7 ideas for you

06 Aug, 2018

Let’s admit it, we never pay too much attention to the remodeling of our private bathroom.

Interior design is often used as a mean to impress and please our guests’ eyes, and for this reason we might tend to forget about the rooms that we don’t expect other people to see.

The importance of decorating rooms such as our bedroom or our personal bathroom is often underestimated but, in reality, it’s exactly because we are the only ones who are going to see them that these areas need a special attention from our side.

Especially because these are the spaces in which we spend most of our time alone, we need to respect this and what our feelings say and want.

Decorating the common places of our home is certainly important, but having a cozy and inviting ambiance in those rooms where we spend our time alone to reflect and relax is just as much needed.

Just because nobody else might see your bathroom, it doesn’t mean that, from time to time, remodeling this room is not essential to complete the style of your entire house. 

Remember that your house has to be warm and welcome to everyone that comes in, especially for your self!

The best things about this kind of rooms, that are more private and intimate, is that you can follow your heart all the way when you design them, as the only person who needs to be satisfied by the final result is yourself.

In this post, we aim at giving you some bathroom ideas that came to our mind after seeing some of the projects created by our Homestyler floor plan and mobile users.

From these pictures and these simple tips, we think you can start realizing what you like and what makes you feel good, so that you’ll be able to finally decorate your own wonderful private bathroom.

Just think about what it is that you need the most to guarantee you a better lifestyle and to make you feel happy when you are alone at home. 

We will tell you how you can decorate your bathroom in order to achieve this goal of inner peace and satisfaction.

1. A bathtub to relax

We said it before, your private bathroom is that room that will welcome you after your most tiring days and that will help you to recover and relax.

Bathtubs are not necessarily the most common choice when it comes to decorate a bathroom, as the shower appears to usually be of the time a more practical option.

However, for your private bathroom, if the keyword is “Relax”, a bathtub is a must.

2. Bold accents of color to give you energy

If bold and vivid colors make you happy, this option is for you. You might, of course, want to choose your favorite color, just know that 2018 is the year of green bathrooms, in all its shades!

Green is a great color for your bathroom for many reasons indeed, given the feeling of freshness and cleanness that it transmits!

You can choose the tone of green you prefer: mint, olive, lime dark green or a softer shade. Just let your imagination run free and your instinct decide for you!

3. Reconnect with nature by using eco friendly materials

If you need a break from the big city life, then this option is for you. 

We don’t often see plants in bathrooms, but, if paired up with organic material and the colors of nature, they can instantly change your mood and give you a more comfortable feeling.

As for the natural materials, exposed bricks walls and wooden furniture are a pair that can instantly warm up the atmosphere. 

Sustainability is now not only a way to be more ecological, but also a technique to help us create a relaxing atmosphere and a beautiful innovative look.

4. A large shower if you have a busy lifestyle and a taste for modernity

If bathtub are too old style for you, and you’d prefer to obtain a more modern look in your bathroom, you should go for a large shower.

Large walk-in showers are the latest trends as not only they have managed to switch the spa system from horizontal (with the classic bathtubs) to vertical, but also they respond to the needs of our dynamic life style.

For this reason, walk-in showers are very versatile and flexible to the use they want to make out of them. Their design is modern and new and they suit perfectly in both big bathrooms and smaller ones.

5. A double vanity set if you are a romantic soul and you love to share

Let’s be honest, aren’t the double vanity sets a real couple goal after all? If your bathroom is big enough to host one, than this should definitely be your choice.

Double vanity sets encourage you to spend more time with your partner, especially during the morning, when both of you are busy getting ready for another day at work, or at night, when you have finally some time to spend together.

Moreover, it doesn’t have to be underestimated how double storage can come in handy!

This choice is not only very romantic but also practical, as it can help you easily separate our spaces, while still allowing to be together.

6. A big chandelier to obtain an elegant and sophisticated look

Who said that chandeliers are only made to be hanged on top of a old wooden dining table? To tell the truth, they look wonderfully in your bathroom too – especially on top of your bathtub, if you end up opting for one!

Chandeliers can help you bring your bathroom look more inviting and fancy. If you are aiming at having one of those luxury bathrooms we see in the movies or in the most elegant hotels, the couple bathtub+chandelier is a must.

One thing you need to keep in mind though, is to make sure you decide to adopt a soft tone of lighting, as it has been proved that helps your nerves feel more calm.

We spend a lot of time thinking about the best color scheme and all the small details that suit it and complete it, so it would be a big pity if we ruined the all mood by choosing a cold light!

7. Your best souvenirs to make your walls look unique

The majority of the bathrooms we see have always unadorned walls. As we said before, however, your private bathroom is one of the places in your house that most allow you to express yourself completely, without bounders.

While we usually prefer to hang paintings in common areas such as the living room or the dining room, we can use our bathroom to showcase more private and personal kind of artworks, such as the souvenirs we collect to remember our holidays or other good moments.

This is a simple technique that will ad lots of valour to your safe place and that will distinguish it from any other bathroom.
