Want to Save Money and Have a Great Looking Bathroom?

Aug 18, 2007
It's about time to give the bathroom a good makeover. So you have decided it would be fun to do some bathroom decorating on your own. You have taken this decision because you enjoy decorating and because it's cheaper than hiring expensive professionals. But you don't know a lot about bathroom desorating. It is important that the bathroom looks good, so what you need are some good bathroom decorating tips.

In order to transform your outdated, or cold and uninteresting bathroom into a stylish and relaxing sanctuary, try picking a theme. Hunt through some magazines, stores or catalogues to see what bathroom decorating themes might be readily available. Following contemporary bathroom decorating trends while maintaining individual taste and style can be achieved with a little research and some imagination.

Go for a Classic Theme and Augment for each Season

A great idea is starting with a basic, classic bathroom theme, and then change it every season. For instance, you can add a floral shower curtain in spring, richer colored accent rugs in the summer.

Modify the colors in the decor to match the fall, and add a fleur of the winter festivities with different types of bathroom ware. Many of us enjoy frequent changes because it creates the element of surprise, which brings excitement to our lives and builds the mood we desire. With this type of design you can also add in special holiday themes such as Halloween and Christmas.

Going to the Beach

We all love the beach, so why not bring the beach home with a beach style bathroom theme. You can choose from a variety of different bathroom accessories that have beach themes to complete the bathroom's look.

This design is easy to implement; try a sky blue color on the wall, or go for a neutral, sandy sort of brown, the lighter the better. Add a little art on the walls, something subtle sch as a picture of a boat or palm trees, or even a photograph of an actual beach.

Next try some blue towels to help pull the theme together. For that special touch with this bathroom decorating idea, try to find a window treatment that has a light wood tone to it. This will add a natural look that giving you an outdoor feel while still seeming open.

Try the Retro Style

A vintage retro look can give your bathroom an old-time flair that makes it a room to talk about, and visit in your home. The right pedestal sink and matching or complementary tiling can really help to bring this bathroom decorating idea together.

There are websites, magazines and local stores that can help you to make your bathroom decorating idea become a reality. Oh, and don't forget the fixtures! For a great art deco bathroom look, make sure you get sleek, polished fixtures to add the shine this look requires. They are even making brand new new claw-foot tubs now!

For a Something Special Night

You can try a new bathroom theme for decorating just for one evening in order to create a relaxing atmosphere or a romantic one. It's not too difficult to do. For a relaxing evening in the bathroom just run a bath, light up some aroma candles, use a few drops of essential oils like lavender, and put on some soothing music.

Setting up for a romantic evening is very similar, but you will be sharing the tub with your partner. Lucky you!! So the essential oils should be made out of jasmine instead of lavender, and any amount of candles and the music of choice will complete the romantic bathroom theme.

For more information on bathroom decorating tips, take a look at various home decorating magazines or home living magazines for ideas. There's an abundance of information out on the web too. With some good research and a little effort you are bound to find the perfect theme for your bathroom.
