Go bold or go home, right? Well, that's not quite the adage, but when it comes to your bathroom remodel, that might be just the mantra for you. Perhaps you have an old Victorian and you want to add to its vintage charm. Maybe your contemporary home can take on any style of bold makeover. Or perhaps you simply want to take a walk on the wild side.
Whatever your decorating style, choose details for your bathroom remodeling that create a striking effect:
Retro Tile Work
If you have an older home, one way to make your remodel job painless is to go retro with the tile work. You can keep your vintage tub – or add one in. Simply have the wall tiled with retro-modern colors. Southern Living suggests a palette of bold green and turquoise. Have the wall tiled in subway tiles for full retro effect.
What's old is new again. This is certainly true of soaking tubs. Time was a tub was the only way to get clean. Once showers modernized cleaning rituals, tubs became passe. Well, the soaking tub has made a resurgence in popularity. Free standing tubs come in various materials and styles. However, if you want to give a traditional bathroom a little kick, consider a stone tub. Such a tub slightly resembles a stone trough, which makes it a remarkable addition to your bathroom.
A rustic or farmhouse style home can allow you to get a little playful with bathroom design. For instance, barn doors don't have to be for barns alone. A very unique idea is to paint a modern barn door to fit your decor and have it mounted on a track. The rest of the bathroom doesn't necessarily have to be rustic – the barn door speaks for itself. However, it's not a bad idea to keep the majority of the bathroom palette neutral.
Generally something growing in your bathroom is a bad sign. Not just for shock appeal, living walls can also improve the air quality in your home. A living wall is a panel of plants that grow vertically using hydroponics. Hydroponic structures can be attached to a wall. Consider having a living wall installed near a sink or bathtub to promote the verdant effect.
Most likely you're approaching your bathroom remodel with the idea of addressing issues such as space or amenities. However, there's no reason you can't get a little whimsical in your bathroom design by adding a striking detail or two.
