Many homeowners like neutral shades when it comes to choosing the paint colors for bathrooms. Colors like brown, beige, white and ivory can be considered ‘warm without overpowering‘ and they never go out of style. One can also add a splash of color by selecting brighter accessory pieces, linen and other decorative bath items. Peach, apricot, pinks and other skin tones also make for some flattering bathroom color ideas. Not only are these cozy, they are ideal to pair up and coordinate with the timber and laminate you use for your bath cabinets. A bolder choice in these can add a dash of color to the space. Pale shades can also make the bathroom appear airy.
Think creatively (and install a good exhaust fan so your art won‘t suffer from the moisture) and break some rules—which is easier to do in smaller spaces anyway—and you‘ll have an interesting and unique restroom instead of the usual boring powder room. Murals are often thought of as "for kids‘rooms only", but this one proves that they can work in other spaces. A simple line drawing over existing tile is incredibly cool.
Wallpaper is the perfect way to give your Victorian powder room the backdrop it deserves. There are plenty of options here, with some designs focusing on understated pattern and metallic sheen, while others offer a more playful ambiance with bright colors and extravagant motifs. Either way, choosing the right wallpaper is a great way to start planning for your smart powder room.
