Choosing the color of your bathroom is more than a fashion or style has to do directly with your tastes and preferences. This year they have become very fashionable super warm colors, like orange terracotta or red range.But eventually you have to choose you.
Just as it is important when you choose the color of your bedroom, because it is a very personal space, at least I think so, the bathroom should give you a sense of relaxation and comfort . If you have trouble deciding on the color, can be inspired by an accessory or a towel you’;ve seen while you were shopping and got your attention.
If you prefer the traditional …
In particular, in the past decades, it was common to enter a bathroom and all the furniture along the walls and majolica were immaculately white . This gave a sense of total cleanliness and freshness. However, today many people associate it rather with a hospital environment and therefore lost popularity.
Now, talking to Karina Gamarra, interior designer, told us that this trend is coming back, especially for those who prefer a minimalistic environment . If you have decided to be white, you have many options through accessories in another color (shower curtain, dispenser, soap dish, mirror, towels …) that will give greater life.
The other option are quite classic blue colors on walls and furniture for their relationship with water and sky, joined its relaxing effect. Celestial, near the green turquoise or dark blue so far are still the favorite colors for this environment in which one seeks to relax with a long shower or a bubble bath.
The blue color conveys harmony, balance, peace and therefore even the tendency Feng Shui is the favorite shade . I opted for the blue in my bedroom, because it relaxes me a lot.
The range of colors
Your bath not necessarily have to be monochromatic, that is a single tone. It has also become very popular to use2-tone or hue combined full color, from deep tone until smooth. Karina Gamarra says that you can choose different colors, “ but that is not a rainbow, but are colored the same range . ”
A combination that became widely used and never goes out of style is the type chess: white with black . This style is both sober and elegant at the same time.
No need to change the floor if they want, but to incorporate certain elements in black, like the toilet seat, a table, mirror frame, shelves or a rug on the floor pictures.This particular style I love, so that’;s the one I have chosen in my bathroom.
Please note that the color white is easier to combine, but not the only option. You can also try 2 colors that complement each other as green and blue, brown and orange or gray and pink.
The fire colors such as red, yellow and orange , are the ones who are taking this year palms. You may think you are extremely bright colors to any other place in the house, however, work quite well in the bathroom. If it still scares you a bit, you can use to complement a more neutral color like a beige or white.
For example, one option is to paint the walls white and include orange accessories or paint only 2 white walls and 2 orange. Do not forget that beyond what is fashionable, it is important that you apply your own taste.
