Interior Ideas Room by Room
Consider the décor and style of your home when designing a bathroom space. The appearance of the bathroom should blend harmoniously with the rest of the home interior.
Color Schemes: Consider establishing complementary color schemes within master baths, ‘jack and jill’ baths or any baths that connect to bedrooms. (When applying a complementary color scheme to connecting spaces; one hue would be utilized within each distinct space.) Examine the overall size of the bath when selecting color.
Design Ideas: There are an unlimited number of ways to allow color to add distinctiveness to the bath space. The following are some of the techniques:
Add color to wall coverings with painted bead boarding, combining paint with wallpaper borders and stencils.
Add contrasting color to bathroom doors and molding by painting doors and trim in deep tones that accentuate wall coverings and highlight tile colors.
Decorative paint finishes add tantalizing texture and stimulating color to the bathroom space.
Consider a decorative paint finish to enhance one larger accent wall within the bathroom.
Add color to plain window coverings by painting wood shutters or cornices using colors that appear within the existing color scheme.
