The bathroom is one of the rooms where you can relax, pamper yourself and get away from the stress in your daily activities. Having beautifully decorated walls can help you feel more tranquil and are conducive to settling back. Here are a few suggestions on how you can make your walls look more soothing.
It is always important to have your wall decor match the rest of the furniture in the bathroom. Having mismatched decor that is all over the place is far from relaxing, but a theme that is well thought out will not only make it a more stylish but also help create that haven of relaxation you want. Before starting out, envision the final result. Having an idea for how the entire bathroom will look – from the paint and wallpaper to the color of the bathroom sink and tub – will always make it easier for you to come up with the right bathroom decorations.
If you are painting your walls, consider the size of the room. Lighter colors will make a small bathroom seem a little bigger whereas brighter and bolder colors can turn a plain and simple bathroom to something more chic and stylish. You can either accent a single wall with a different color from the rest (or put up wallpaper with a bold pattern or color) or paint the entire room just one color.
Many bathrooms have tiles on the walls. Instead of a plain colored tile, choose those that have designs. There are so many options out there that you can find tiles that can match almost any theme. Sticking just a few Moroccan tiles into a wall of white ones can change the entire look of the room.
You can also make it look more colorful by choosing mosaic tiles in more than one color and alternately sticking them on the walls (and if that sounds too labor intensive, look for tiles that come in larger sheets). These days, mosaics come in a huge variety of finishes, and there are even glow-in-the-dark ones!
A towel bar or rack can be accessorized with ribbons or laces for a very feminine look. Adorning a medicine cabinet, or bathroom wall cabinet, with stenciled flowers, photos, or wall stickers turns it into a decorative piece while still allowing it to serve its function.
For those who would rather not mess around with DIY projects, there are many vanity mirrors with truly unique design elements available, and a creative and unusual mirror can be the highlight of the room.
A bathroom with well-decorated walls not only looks more appealing, it will also help make it the perfect place for relaxation and calming your senses.
