Decorate Your Bathroom


A bathroom is very special and private space of our home. So, it is necessary to take care and decorate this private space with modern attires. But when we decorate our home, we only pay the full concentration on decorating the rooms and kitchens and concentrate a little attention to decorate our custom built bathroom. Its very easy to decorate a small and claustrophobic bathroom into a sophisticated, quiet and charming one by applying some simple tricks. To transform the looks and appeal of your bathroom, you need to change the color and lighting style of the bathroom.

Tips to moderate your old small bathroom in a comfortable and specious looking bathroom are mentioned below:

Select some wall colors which bring peace of mind- Always choose some soft and pale colors for your bathroom to feel the illusion of more space. Avoid strong and combined colors. Light shades also brings peace of mind. Decorate the background of your bathroom with neutrals, pastel tones and white colors and bring dark colored towels and accessories to make a great combination.

Choose light colors for the flooring- Like as the wall colors, choose light colored tiles for the flooring. It would make the floor look more specious. If you can't change the style of the flooring, place a light colored rag over your existing flooring.

Add some extra lights to brighten up the room- Without engaging any extra space, you can add some extra lights to brighten up your bathroom. The lights should be placed in the ceiling, and should be focused in the work spaces of the bathroom. A counter to lamp or some wall scones will add brightness and warmth to the bathroom. Another options to add more brightness in the bathroom are: placing larger windows, skylights or solar tubes.

Cut back the things which shrinks out- If the space of your bathroom is medium or small, placing a small extra furniture can block the space and can make the bathroom look shrink. If the space is getting blocked because of the furniture, then remove them. Remove the hanging racks, wall shelves, or any decorative pieces. Don't remove everything, it can make the space hollow. Put the things back which have their own usefulness.

Change the large vanity and place a pedestal sink- A large vanity bathroom cabinet provides the bathroom a space under the sink, and it is ideal for the big sized bathrooms. If the floor space of your bathroom is small, then you can go for a pedestal or wall mounted sink to save the space. In this way, the space of the bathroom will also open up. Find any other place to organize your storage place or the closet.

Following these ways, you can change the style statement of your bathroom.

TRADITIONAL HOME DECOR


The easiest way to make our house look expensive is to use traditional décor. Traditional decor can include accent items and functional items for a variety of rooms from the kitchen to the bedroom. Classic and stylish, these items use straight and sweeping lines while still remaining simply and unobtrusive. Color or texture might be the primary element in some decorating styles. In yet another, it could be the geometry of the design. Traditional decoration relies upon the commanding presence of finely crafted woodworking for its pedigree.
 Some of the defining features of a traditional decor are:
  • Beautiful leather, showing it’s age with scuffs and scratches
  • Cut crystal vases, glasses, chandeliers
  • Polished woods, sometimes with an aged patina
  • Classic camelback sofa, wing back chairs
  • Gilded frames
  • Nubby silks, luxurious wool, velour or even a cotton chintz
  • Damasks, tone-on-tone stripes, plaids, rich deep colors


TRADITIONAL LIVING ROOM DECOR 
Wall color may be neutral like beige, taupe, cream or gold, or the color may be deep red or olive green. Furnishing may be dark woods, like maple, cherry or mahogany. Draperies may be damask or brocade and have a floral or paisley print or be striped. The drapes may reach floor to ceiling and may be used for window framing only rather than be functional. Gold or black may be used for accent pieces or as picture frame or mirror colors. If you have the room and enjoy reading, think about putting a bookshelf into place as well. Not only does this help fill some space if you're out of ideas, it also gives off the impression of a family who enjoy spending quiet, yet quality, time together, perhaps discussing the latest book they are reading. At the end of the day, the choices are limitless - the only thing you need to remember when decorating your traditional living room is to express your own personality, as this is where you'll be spending many an hour.

TRADITIONAL BED ROOM DECOR

A four poster bed may sport a bed skirt that is plain or patterned and could be a typical gathered skirt or a tailored skirt. The neutral colored bedspread may be accented with one to three small pillows in a contrasting solid color or print. Matching side tables may drawers to
serve for extra storage and each may hold a ceramic lamp with a painted floral design. Traditional wood furniture has an unbeatable charm, so using this kind of furniture is suitable for those people who want class and style in their bed room. Traditional bedrooms are best decorated with jewel toned bed coverings with gold accents and  luxurious high-thread count sateen bed linens, finished with a delicate hemstitch or fine lace trim.

TRADITIONAL KITCHEN DECOR

White cabinets, solid black countertops, and white or stainless steel appliances set the mood in a traditional kitchen decorating theme. If there's an island, its counter top may be a different color and material, like veined marble.Accessories in a traditional kitchen are minimal and may include recipe books, antique pieces like a lidded soup tureen, or a decorative bowl of fruit. All small appliances, like can opener and mixer, are out of sight. Intricate moldings and corbels give the cabinets a high-end furniture look. The simple door details, rustic hardware and open shelves give this kitchen an updated Craftsman feel. Two-toned  doors in burgundy and gray have the quality of individual furniture pieces, another feature of the Arts and Crafts period. Most of the French kitchens, similar to the Italian kitchens have one thing in common and that is the chopping table as a center piece of the kitchen. They feel that the chopping table if the most important part of the kitchen and hence it should be right in the center. The dining table with creative and elegant chairs is another important aspect when French people design kitchen furniture.

TRADITIONAL DINING ROOM DECOR

The table shape, which may be round, oval or rectangle, should suit the size of the room, giving guests plenty of room to push their chair out without hitting the wall or other furniture. The chandelier may be brass or crystal.Add a dimmer switch for romantic, low-light dinners. An elegant area rug may be used. Wall colors may be a dark shade of red, green or brown. For classic dining room furniture you'll want to stick with a set. The chairs should match the table and be in the same finish. Thechairs should also match each other, although it's acceptable to use the same chair with arms for the head and foot of the table. Look for matching china cabinet or buffet for a place to store and display dishes. You should layer accessories to add interest and opulence to a room. You can hang pictures on the wall and then  lean more frames up against the pictures. You can still showcase your personality with the color palette, furniture style, and decorating accessories you choose. The classic style is enduring and will be relatable and liked by most of your guests.
