In view of the fact that the bathroom is one of the most personal and functional rooms of the house, innovative home decorating ideas are essential to making the most of this space. I am going to explore designs and concepts that will allow you to establish the type of bathroom that works for you and your household.
Early in the 1900's, the bathroom was viewed as a functional room only. They were typically very little rooms without a lot of attention given to style or décor. Basically, bathrooms in this era had three indispensable components – the basin or sink, bathtub, and the commode that were purely functional and using as little space as possible. However, trends did start to evolve in the 1920's and '30's resulting in more attractive, stylish decor.
The secret to decorating small rooms is, most assuredly, planning. This ensures results that are not only tasteful but practical as well. Choices available are:
Pedestal sinks – makes the room seem more spacious and diminishes the feeling of being cramped
Glass shower doors – provides openness to the room and adds a touch of class
Compact corner sink / cabinet – attractive and functional storage space
Drawers – provides storage and helps keep the counter top uncluttered
Mirrors – a well-placed mirror will add length or width and dimension to the room
Built-in shelving – provides a decorative touch as well as much-needed storage
Skylights – provides an open feeling as the light brightens up the room
Decorative basin – attractive and space efficient plus they make the room look classy
Decorative towel racks – these are fun to shop for since they can reflect your personality
When you decorate a small bathroom which is in the master suite, it is necessary to remain consistent in both rooms. More times than not the door is left standing ajar and just closing the door will not solve the problem if the two rooms do not complement each other in style and décor. The simplest means to connect the areas together is with color. Variations of the same color should be used in both rooms for your home decorating ideas to be successful.
The small bathroom may also be part of the master bedroom without a door between the bathtub, shower and sink. This, of course, means the same decorative scheme used in the master bedroom should be extended into the bathroom.
