· Bathrooms need good light and air circulation. This isn’t just for safety, but also for hygiene’s sake.
· Speaking of hygiene, decoration takes a back seat to cleanliness. If the tile can’t be cleaned or is not water proof, then it can’t be considered hygienic enough to be in the bathroom.
· Minimalism is best when it comes to appliances and colors as they create sleek lines and don’t detract from other features you may decide to put up (such as accents or stone countertops).
· Glass is used often in bathrooms because it is classy yet doesn’t detract from other things. Adding glamour and elegance, note that glass can also be a hazard as it breaks easily.
· Neutral colors, for the same reason as minimalism and glass, are often used in bathrooms. They add a soft, muted feel that is easy to relax in and that can be paired with anything. Try brown, white, or grey for maximum benefits.
· Décor should be easy to clean, solely because if it isn’t easy to wipe down or clean off there is a high chance it can harbor bacteria or germs. Be wise in your décor choices.
While Blair Stover Interior Design always encourages do-it-yourself projects, sometimes handling a redesign with a contractor is better. Especially if major appliances are involved. Know your limits and decide not only how you’re going to redecorate but how comfortable you are doing so yourself.
