When we plan for the design and decoration of our home, the bathroom is not something that instantly comes to mind. Often, it is one of the last spaces we pay attention to, and many of us do not have the luxury of expansive bathrooms that bring home the ambiance of a luxury spa. The color scheme of the bathroom is something that we all get stuck with, and while the options and themes are endless, few, if any, come close to the classic black and white look. The black and white bathroom is a timeless choice that can be adapted to suit any design style, ranging from the rustic to the minimal.
Opt for a gender neutral design. If your powder room is screaming with pink frills or plastered in photos of centerfolds, you’re definitely alienating many of your guests. (Not to mention, those are both hideous choices for any sort of décor!) Instead, choose colors and designs that cater to a wider range of tastes – such as earth tones.
No matter how contemporary the rest of your home looks and even if you have opted for an understated touch of minimalism in all other rooms, your kid’s bathroom plan can and should incorporate a few vivid designs and patterns just to liven up the whole place. A dash of cool blue, a touch of bright and bubbly orange and a bit of red can add freshness to otherwise bland walls that are largely covered in whites and grays.
