Country Decorating Ideas – Bathroom Decorating
It is essential that your bathroom meets the same strict standards as every other room in your home. Many people neglect the importance of their bathroom and last but not least, the impression your bathroom makes on guests in your home.
Your bathroom is probably one of the most used rooms in your home. Why would you not want your bathroom decor to be any less important than every other room in your home?
According to the size of your family, you just can’t have enough bathrooms! Actually, a bathroom is needed for each family member. This more than likely in many cases is not feasible, or is it?
A family of three needs at least two full sized bathrooms. Ladies, I don’t have to tell you something you already know…but…we need our own “private powder room”. This is not a want but a demand!
A family may plan to stay in their home a lifetime, so comfort, atmosphere and home decor that reflects the families personality is essential. And one of the main attributes to comfort is having a bathroom to accomodate each family member. If you ever do decide to sell your home, you can bet the interested party places the number of bathrooms a home has at the top of their list.
We just recently added a bathroom to our home, so the boys now have no reason or excuse for invading my space! Now everyones happy. The only thing left to do now is to train those boys to pick-up towels and clothes. But thats a whole story in itself.
Bathroom redecorating ideas to create a tranquil environment where we can seclude ourselves even for a few minutes.
Accessories can range from such things as plants, flowers, candles, baskets – holding towels, soaps, lotions, potpourri, magazines or newspapers. The punched tin and red clay pots are my personal favorite accessory for a country bathroom decor theme.
Creating A Focal Point With Bathroom Assessories Often the most overlooked bathroom accessory is the shower curtain, while at the same time it is one item we should actually put more thought into. It can often be the focal point of the room and a guide to choosing the rest of the accessories.
For bathroom redecorating for a country theme, a shower curtain pattern of stripes are always a great choice or if you prefer solid colors they can range from red, blue, green, and yellow.
Whatever you choose, be certain you choose the things that fits your personal style If you decide to paint, white is a great color and it never goes out of style
1. To make a small room appear larger, paint the walls a light color.
2. Bright colors will be a great contrast with white fixtures and tiles to make the room bold and cheery.
3. For a masculine effect try strong colors.
If you decide to purchase new window treatments, consider the style of the window. Does it open up and down, slide sideways, or swing in or out? If you want to open and close the windows for air, select window treatments that will not get in the way.
Some ideas you can use for redecorating include painting, choosing new lighting, new vanities, changing floor coverings, finding the perfect window treatments, and adding accessories.
If you live in an area that is private enough the windows may need little or no window treatment. Try hanging plants.
If you have a window in the bathroom, you can hang shelves and fill them with small plants such as English ivy or violets etc. etc.
Add shades or shutters to compliment the woodwork, cafe curtains will add a clean crisp country feel to the room.
Another easy and inexpensive way to redecorate is to change the faucets and fixtures, this will make a huge impact on the bathroom. There are many new styles to choose from so take your time and pick one that fits your style.
