Bathrooms tend to fall to the wayside when it comes to decorating. Ironically, the small area is actually advantageous. In this space, you have the artistic freedom to be bold and funky in a way that you may not be brave enough to try in a high-traffic room. When planning your bathroom remodel, consider going for an eclectic style and unleash your inner creativity. To get you started, here are a few ideas for a unique and eclectic bathroom remodel.
Bold color schemes can really bring a modern feel to the room and turn it into a point of interest. For a funky room, bright colors are best, whereas deep shades of purple or burgundy can give the room a classic look with edge. You may also consider wallpaper or border with large or intense patterns.
You have many flooring options for an eclectic bathroom remodel. One fun look is the retro design of black and white checked tile. You can get creative and use another bright color in lieu of black. Laminate flooring can also be extremely attractive for the overall look of your bathroom. Basic white tile can put emphasis on other colors and elements throughout the space. Ornate and patterned rugs can add a lovely touch to almost any flooring.
Lighting & Hardware
In addition to overhead lights or decorative wall sconces, consider making use of a funky floor lamp, or even a table lamp strategically placed on a vanity. Brass tones are gorgeous and work well for faucets and other bathroom hardware. One area where you can get particularly crafty is with the knobs and drawer pulls to cabinets. You can really use most any object, and with a few drilled holes, it can become a part of your hardware. This mismatched and unique look will make your bathroom stand out.
Depending on your preferences, you have several choices for a bathtub. Sleek, modern tub & shower combinations definitely work, especially when bordered by bold tiles. Another consideration is a large Japanese style washtub of free standing claw-foot tub in the middle of the room. When it comes to sinks, you can opt for a funky vanity, or a free standing sink. A fun look is the placement of two pedestal sinks side by side with mismatched mirrors. Consult with a professional for other unique ideas.
Accessories & Decorations
“Real” furniture like an overstuffed chair or dressing table really adds to the eclectic look. Multiple shelving units can be both functional and decorative as you may use them for storage of towels, or to display art and books. Colorful wall or mirror tiles as well as large paintings add to the interest of the space. Lastly, you can make use of Southshore’s acrylic bathtub liners in a variety of colors and designs to tie everything together.
