Creating a new design for a room can be a fun and rewarding project to undertake. One room that has a lot of different themed options is the bathroom. The particular bathroom decorations you decide to use should reflect the theme you are using for the rest of the items in your room. When designing a bathroom it is best to start with all your large main pieces and work your way to the smaller accent items. If you choose a shower curtain with seashells, you might select a wastebasket with seashell images on it and a shell shaped soap holder.

You can then continue your bathroom decor by adding some authentic shells that are often placed in decorative containers such as glass bottles. You might select a tissue holder that also uses a shell motif in its design. Of course, you don’t want just one item to overpower your theme so you can choose bathroom decorations that reflect other areas of the sea as well. A few beach or tropical island pictures hung on the wall will reflect your overall theme nicely. You could also select statues of mermaids and seahorses to compliment the other items in your designer bathroom.



When it comes to bathroom decor ideas, you can use almost any type of color scheme. Once you decide on your theme and choose your main colored items, you will want to keep with the original colors in all of the other objects you choose. A nautical theme may incorporate bold colors of blue red and white with complimentary colors of light blue and gray. The seashell theme might use neutral colors of beige tan and peach with accenting shades of light green and gold. If the room has a lot of imagery used in the objects, you might want to use a solid color on your walls.

Decorating a stylish bathroom for adults will be different than creating one for children. In the line of children’s items you will see many themed products that use storybook characters as their images. It is easy to purchase all of the major components with the same image line for the child’s bathroom. The decorations can be various figurines and toys that are in keeping with the specific character theme. These collections are often available for use in adult bathrooms as well. A collection may include the shower curtain, window curtains, wastebasket, carpets and towels all with the same theme.
