If you are lucky enough to have a large bathroom space to work with you may want to consider a traditional bathroom design. The stark minimalism and functionality of a contemporary bathroom is not for everybody as some prefer to have something with a bit more character and old-world luxury. A traditional bathroom will often have a large glamourous bath as the centrepiece of the room accompanied by classic period furniture from a chosen era.While modern bathroom fashions are constantly evolving traditional bathrooms often have a timeless quality which is likely to endure over the years.
The absolute opposite of a fitted bathroom the shabby chic look is a mismatch of styles and products. You can even do the unexpected like put a put a refrigerator in the corner. Nothing is expected to match and pipework and plumbing are on show rather than concealed. This style is best suited to those who have inherited a bathroom and want to update it a little rather than fork out on a brand new bathroom suite. The key to decoration is neutral tones with a few dark colors. For the walls choose a matte or flat wall paint. Pale golds and yellows work particularly well as does floral or check patterned wallpaper.
These bathroom accessories will complement the existing fittings but creating a stunning contrast and giving the room a fashionable monochrome edge. In an existing white bathroom it is only necessary to add two or three pieces of black bathroom furniture to create this look although you can of course add more if you desire. Of course adding dark coloured accessories to a light coloured bathroom is also a great way to help to prevent the bathroom from appearing to be too lightly coloured.
If you currently have white fixtures and fittings it is actually possible to update the look of your existing bathroom without having to completely refit the room simply by adding black bathroom accessories to the room. This can be a good way to add a darker touch to the room if you are still concerned about the room appearing too dark. It is also the perfect step if your bathroom is very small which can also make dark rooms seem a lot darker.
