All you need here is the right slab of wood, and the more untreated and rugged it is, the better. Of course, some bathrooms demand a more polished approach to even the live‐ edge vanity top, but we will get to that later. A beautiful and natural slab of wood acting as a vanity top in the bathroom often ends up becoming the unrivaled focal point of the space it graces, and it can also define and determine the style of the room itself. Despite the vanity top acting as an entire vanity on its own, there is plenty of counter space here, and you can extend the length of the vanity top to create even more.
Think of a shower‘s interior as a blank canvas awaiting your artistic touch. Though you‘ll save money by creating walls from sheets of acrylic, cultured marble, or solid‐ surfacing, you‘ll produce more interesting perimeters and floors if you work with ceramic, stone, glass, or marble tiles. Use varying sizes and shades of the same type of tile to create contrasting borders, fetching niches, and mosaic murals on shower walls. For natural interest underfoot, install river rock or pebbled tile floors. Arrange inexpensive ceramic tiles (in a monochromatic mix or a bold blend) on the walls above a prefab shower unit or across the walls of a walk‐ in cubicle.
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.
