Does your bathroom need a rescue? Here are some images from Neopolis Design Studio that will help you get that makeover started. As Neopolis says, “Modern bathrooms are very often minimalist with smooth surfaces. This, however, does not mean that they must be cold and impersonal. Essential here are the materials and light — wood, glass, metal, and ceramics should be combined in the right proportions.” Think about sand-colored tiles, paired with lighter wood grain and white fixtures. All-contemporary…except that the ornate vanity looks like a treasured antique. Add swans to the mix and you’ve got pure romance. Another way to liven up a bathroom is with the right colors — and here you’ve got an advantage.
A vivid or deep tone such as lime green, bright yellow, hot pink, royal blue, or even black that would be “too much” in a larger room of your home will be fine in the bathroom, and you can have your favorite color without being overwhelmed by it. Does your bathroom have an outdated tub, or none at all? Try a garden tub or a soaking tub — it doesn’t even have to be round. Custom-shaped tubs can fit in those irregular spaces quite nicely. And don’t forget your shower; ditch that old shower curtain and put up walls of stenciled glass — or keep it simple and classic with a plain glass door. Let some of these colorful images spark your imagination, and you’ll soon agree with Neopolis: “With the right lighting and accessories, any bathroom can be turned into an oasis of peace.”
