There are so many different ways to design a bathroom that many people become overwhelmed with the choices and opt for something simple, and quite frankly boring. Plain white tile may be a bright and easy to clean look but there are more interesting ways to adorn this room in which you probably spend a significant amount of time. Here are 5 trendy design ideas to spice up your bathroom décor.
If your home features more traditional styles, than this bathroom design may be the perfect compliment. With a subtly patterned wallpaper in a neutral shade to add warmth, character, and depth, vintage touches add elegance to this small space. The shapely faucet and marble countertop contribute to this impression of elegance while the flared legs of the vanity creates the illusion of more floor space.
The soft shade and traditional pattern of the wallpaper recalls the appearance of tile at a fraction of the cost and adds some traditional flair without weighing down the small room. Despite often being seen as outdated or drab, the right wallpaper can work wonders in your space.
In a more eclectic home you might try something like the above picture. Combining patterned wallpaper and wainscoting which reaches high up the walls creates a dramatic impact with a lovely sense of depth. Predominantly white, this bathroom is clean, bright, and airy without being boring. Attention is focused on the dramatic and vintage vanity made from an antique washtub with a wooden countertop and a deep vessel sink. The brass wall-mounted faucet enhances the vintage aesthetic of the space and brings together the various shades of brown in the vanity and wallpaper.
This nature-inspired vintage bathroom combines wonderful natural elements with antique finishes for an almost woodland-steampunk vibe. The wallpaper pattern is well complimented by the wood-framed mirror and adds a rustic warmth and natural character to an otherwise stark room.
A small bathroom does not necessarily require quiet colors or small designs. In fact, sometimes a bold statement is the best way of distracting the eye from the cramped dimensions. This fun, fashion-forward powder room makes use of a bold, oversized pattern to create a grand feel. The large-scale chartreuse blooms are a striking backdrop for the crisp white pedestal sink and the brushed nickel faucet and metal-framed mirror complement the gray tones in the wallpaper, bringing the whole room together.
One of the most attractive and interesting aspects of this bathroom is the choice of lighting: a sparkling glass chandelier. The delicate proportions of the chandelier contrast perfectly with the boldness of the wallpaper and the sparkle helps to give the room a touch of whimsy.
This bathroom makes great use of horizontal elements with slender, linear tile; shelves with sleek, clean lines; and a long vanity. These elements work together to make the room feel more spacious and expansive while the mirrored wall next to the vanity improves this illusion of extra space as well as boosting the room’s natural light. The clean-lined vanity offers plenty of open and closed storage space and helps to prevent the small tile from feeling too busy. A clean, simple, and modern square vessel sink paired with a sleek, single-lever faucet enhances the modern vibe of the space.
On the other hand, the vertical elements in this powder room also help the space feel larger. The twisting vine pattern of the wallpaper draws the eye upwards and gives the illusion of a higher ceiling while a mix of metallic finishes contribute to the relaxed vintage vibe. The two-legged console sink offers an uninterrupted view of the floor from wall to wall helping to increase the appearance of more space and is topped with a marble slab and sink which add to the room’s traditional flair.
