Any room with Asian elements is intrinsically designed to be a haven. Asian-style bathrooms consist of clean lines and simplicity combined with natural elements. The idea is to bring the room into harmony with nature—and many homeowners love the design creativity that comes along with that.
In fact, part of what makes Asian design so appealing is its versatility. The look can be ultra-modern or classic in appeal. You can select subdued earth tones with Japanese sensibility, or brighter, more colorful Chinese patterns that favor red and gold. You can be playful and add silk textiles, mythical figurines, or hanging lanterns. The sky’s the limit.
The cost of incorporating Asian style into your bathroom depends on the size and scope of the remodel and the materials, fixtures and accessories used in its construction. Your renovation can be as costly as adding new flooring and countertops, or as simple as painting the room an appropriate color and adding accessories. Get a couple price quotes for a better idea on total costs.
The maintenance required of Asian-style bathrooms is typically minimal, maybe a wipe-down of the soaking tub or replacing soft-glow light bulbs occasionally. Should you install a fountain, however, expect maintenance as required by the manufacturer.
In terms of accessories, you can add a running fountain, plants, and other accents made from wood and stone. All of these create a sense of harmony key to this style.
