Furnishing Your Bathroom Makeover
Apply your unique style to your bathroom
Furnishing your bathroom can be a little daunting. We all know the basics, but these days, the bathroom is used for more than just the basics. It has become the center for relaxation and personal pampering, making the furnishings very important for aesthetic reasons.
What does and can go in the bathroom? Whatever you choose, make sure it fits your decor and style while being functional. Be it antique, contemporary, or modern, consider the size of the room and make a clear plan of how it will look. Choose a focal point – the tub, sink, or vanity, or perhaps a particular theme, and decorate around those elements. Consult a designer if you are not sure where or how to start.
Pick out the main stays of a bathroom, such as the vanity and/or cabinets, shelves, and towel racks. Most of these items are used for storage and organization. Stay to your budget, but don’t skim on quality. The conditions of the bathroom’s environment require good quality pieces.
- There are several types of vanities and cabinets to choose from. Wood, plastic, or ceramic vanities can easily fit into a tight budget while antiques, stone, glass, or porcelain varieties can be rather expensive. Vanities can be attached to a wall or left freestanding, with or without mirrors, stools, or benches. If you choose cabinetry with sink drop-ins and countertops, hiding away all the plumbing as a part of the unit, make sure there’s enough for all the storage you will need.
- Shelves and towel racks are a must, preventing clutter. Make sure they are placed in strategic places for convenience, balancing the room and walls at the same time. Match shelving with cabinetry and use towel racks as accent pieces. All of these furnishings come in a wide range of designs, colors, and styles.
Add to the style and personal touch of your bathroom with plants, wall art, and rugs. Of course, your towels and curtains should fit with the theme of the bathroom. They are not just practical items; they are a part of the design as well. Think special lighting for ambiance. If you have a larger space to work with, it is not unthinkable to place a chaise lounge in your bathroom.
