They say the living room is the real statement of any home. It’s what a home is all about. It’s about comfort, style, privacy and expresses who you are. However, bathrooms are perhaps the hidden secret of any home. They are rarely seen by guests, they are where we get naked, feel the most vulnerable and are at our barest both physically and mentally. So maybe we should switch gears, stop thinking that the living room is where we bear our hearts, when it’s clearly in the place where we feel the most unshielded. The bathroom should therefore be the one doing the talking for our home and style.
Why is every bathroom you’ve ever been in dull when it comes to the lighting? The lighting is just there to be practical, or so the thought process is. No, lighting should be to make a statement, be bold, be stylish and want people to look at it for its uniqueness. This is why statement lighting is in order for your own bathroom. It can be anything you want, but it has to be large and it has to hang in the center of the room. You can of course have corner lights but the main lighting should be something unique. Maybe an art deco piece that has sharp straight lines, or maybe a traditional light such as a chandelier, or perhaps go for Spanish grandeur with a red Merino wool lighting cover?
Tiling is nothing new, the Ancient Greeks were the first to have tiled walls although there’s were mosaics. They had images of bulls, horses and Greek legends on their bathroom walls. This tradition then lept to the Romans, who also had such figures on their walls, along with Roman slogans and sayings. The Turks also took this on and so on and so on. You should speak with professional bathroom remodeling contractors that can create vintage tiles for your walls. The designs can be anything you like but we recommend a large image of something. Maybe a forest, with birds and deer, or perhaps a fountain with exotic birds.
Every bathroom is bathed in stainless steel. Although completely practical, it’s not very stylish anymore. It’s cold, clinical and it doesn’t really express comfort does it? But warmer metals, such as bronze, brass and copper, could be the ticket. You can also have steel polished in different colors, so why not get this done? For your bathroom you could have rose gold, polished bronze or brown, maybe something yellow? What this does is give your bathroom an accent without changing the entire feel. It’s much like the trimming of a dress, it kind of completes the look in a subtle way.
Every bathroom should be trying to make a statement about you and your home. It should be a privilege to come in and use the bath or shower, enjoying the different additions and textures.
