Bronze is an interesting choice for your bathroom finishes because unlike many other metals it may actually get better with age. This is due to the fact that products labeled as “oil-rubbed bronze” or “hand-rubbed bronze” are not given an external finish to protect them from the elements after manufacturing. Over time use and exposure to the elements will create a unique staining pattern that deepens the aesthetic.
Dark colors will make the room feel smaller and lighter colors will make the room feel larger. If you have the luxury of having natural light pour into your bathroom it will feel much bigger. Mimic the feeling of natural light with neutral and sunny tones that feel warm and inviting. Change your light bulbs to ones that emit a warmer glow. Light bulbs play a huge role in how you see yourself in the mirror. You will hate using the bathroom if you hate how you look in the mirror!
The best part of being on vacation is the little luxuries that your hotel has to offer. Even though your friends and family won’t be staying at a company-run resort you can recreate the experience by adding some luxe accessories to your guest bathroom.
Choose smaller fixtures: Believe it or not they make all size sinks toilets bathtubs and shower/enclosures. If space is inadequate in your small bathroom consider replacing a few of your fixtures with smaller ones to gain more space to maneuver. In a small half bathroom instead of using a vanity sink with cabinet below opt for a pedestal sink. They look gorgeous and take up half the space
Lay geometric tiles in an ombré pattern to bring a modern edge to a room with industrial elements. The cobalt blue pattern on these tiles evokes the soothing watercolor feel of Japanese shibori painting the wall with subtle texture.
Change the swing of your door: If your current door swings into your bathroom consider flipping the door around so it swings out of the bathroom. When doing this ensure that the door is not swinging into a heavily trafficked hallway or space. If you can consider installing a pocket door that slides into the wall and doesn’t require a door swing. Pocket doors are also visually appealing because they “hide” inside the wall!
