If I had the chance to redo my bathroom, I’d make sure it’s
not the boring blue color, square ceramic tiles with the clinical white walls
which not only appears impersonal, but outright screams of shortage in creativity.
Tiles of all shapes, sizes, and material are available in the market if only
you’d take the time to. Don’t just pour your creative juices out in the layout
and design of the living room or bedrooms; research says humans spend one and a
half years out of a lifetime in the bathroom. Imagine that! So giving it equal
consideration in artistic and design value, multitudes of concepts are just
waiting to be applied to suit your taste.
Simply by a matter of size, give your bathroom a whole new look instead of the
simple squares. Go wild with the variety of tile sizes, with unique
arrangements to bring a defining character or just cover the entire bathroom in
tiles of the same color and size if you’re afraid of going wrong. You can also
opt to set your walls in distinct mode with the upper half the wall getting a
different color of tile from the lower half with a defining separator; a chair
rail which itself comes it many colors and surfaces to bring more character to
your bathroom walls. The sky is the limit for your creativity to reach!
A play of colors can send out different signals for instance sturdy colors
bring warmth to a room while patterned tile borders or the use of various
splash of colors can convey remarkable visual effects that you wouldn’t imagine
possible if you didn’t try it out in the first place. If you’re worried of
choosing the wrong shade, perhaps stick to the colors that you trust would do
no wrong but innovate yourself with the use of diverse textures and the use of
ornamental tile pieces on the wall to craft a distinctive masterpiece Tiles of
an assortment of sizes can be arranged in ways to show your artistic
creativity; oblique, circular or criss-cross, just putting pieces together can
give you wonderful prints. The use of colored grout of contrast to the color of
the tiles can be another method to make your bathroom look out of the ordinary.
However keep in mind the use of sealers to conserve the shade of your grout in
areas of heavy wear. You may also start the design of your bathroom based on
general concepts for instance if you are thinking a modern-day look would best
suit your power-suit lifestyle, go for vivid and daring colors with graphics
sitting against bare backgrounds decorated with modern lustrous trinkets to
further enhance the modern look. If you’re the romantic of family, lush ornate
prints with watercolors of pastels; pink, peach, light jade or azure with
custom hand printed sinks with smooth hard wood tiles to match would simply
infuse the love in your bathroom. On the other hand, a mosaic of clay
terracotta with classic Mexican or Spaniard touch can bring the Mediterranean
terrains into the comforts of your bathroom.
But before getting started on that drawing board of yours, get familiar with
the resources you have on board. Know what sort of texture, materials,
patterns, contours and dimensions available to you to broaden your selection
and bring that dream bathroom design of your to reality. Though ceramic tiles
are commonplace, known for is sturdiness, being slip-free and easy maintenance,
other materials can give you the same qualities as well but always make sure to
get your facts on your tiles straight before purchase. Remember the importance
of colors, which can dramatically change the mood of your bathroom; from brown
red warmth to a chilly icy sapphire, perception of space or drama all can be
transformed by the brush of paint.
