This fantastic Melbourne residence showcases a stylish marble bathroom imagined having a set of rounded design lines on a marble background. Just one marble wall changes the overall design adding depth and a focal point in a bathroom based on simplicity. By adding dramatic lighting the effect of design is enhanced and a cozy atmosphere emerges.
There are DIY-friendly flooring options today that are modern and easy to work with. Affordable resilient vinyl floor planks are available at most home improvement stores and come in a variety of wood species and patterns. They’re realistic looking (white washed oak shown above) and include texture and imperfections on the surface much like a real wood floor or stone tile would. Installing is as easy as scoring with a blade peeling and sticking. The best part is that they’re waterproof and come with long warranties against wear and tear.
It’s good to think about resale value when making changes to a bathroom especially because white and off-white are the most popular color schemes in that room. That said your bathroom is a space that all of your guests will likely see at some point; so if you want to make a statement this is the place to do it. Think about it the same way you would your kitchen backsplash: You want it to be timeless and clean and to not turn off potential buyers.
Wainscoting is a decorative wall covering that extends partway up the wall. It’s typically done in wood and in spaces such as the dining room. However it can also work in the bathroom as a way to add character. If you want to incorporate tile but are on a budget try tiling from the floor up and then paint the remaining wall with a gloss or semi-gloss paint for easy clean-up. A potential benefit of using tile wainscoting is that it can also work as a backsplash if it extends high enough above the sink.
Be original when upgrading lighting. Bathroom lighting trends include hanging pendants and light bars that diffuse light in a room. Select LED lighting fixtures since they’re the most energy efficient and don’t heat your bathroom up.
There are an endless number of ways to design a bathroom from creating a layout to choosing colors and fixtures. When it comes to decor mirrors are a necessity in the bathroom but that doesn’t mean they have to be basic or lack style.
