You could allow tile to make a statement and cover all four walls, or use it to create pseudo-wainscoting and paint the top half of the wall the color of your choice. Here are five general bathroom tile ideas to apply to your space.
Hang It. Technically, most mirrors are hung on the wall. However, suspending the mirror from a visible rope or wire is a great way to add an element of interest. You can choose from a variety of materials to hang the mirror, such as thick rope to create a nautical theme or wire for a more modern, industrial vibe — just be sure it’s secure.
Metallic Wall Paint. If your room is naturally dark, metallic paints add a warm sheen to your walls. They require several coats to apply but are worth the final effect. Both Ralph Lauren and Sherwin Williams sell easy-to-use metallic paints in a variety of colors. The wall in the image below is painted in a metallic steel paint color.
Create Contrast with the Ceiling. The ceiling is a surface that is often overlooked. By adding a splash of color overhead you can create a visually interesting contrast with your walls and make the space more dynamic. The effect can be subtle if you choose a muted shade, or you can brighten a white room with a bold color. If you have low ceilings, selecting a cool shade like blue or lilac will make them appear higher so you can fool the eye into thinking the room is bigger than it really is.
Patterned Kitchen Countertops. If you like the contemporary feel of sleek, minimalist cabinets, add visual interest with patterned kitchen countertops. Some great kitchen countertop ideas for pattern include the use of striped stone materials or textures like Caesarstone’s Concetto series.
Think about what kind of design (whether custom or prefabricated) is going to provide the most utility by asking the following questions: What will it be used for the most? What particular features will enhance the existing kitchen? What does the space need? If the room lacks cabinet space, you’ll want storage. If you don’t have a kitchen or dining room table (and even if you do), extra seating might be a priority.
The terms— modern and contemporary — have been intermingled in the design world, resulting in a bit of confusion. A kind of confusion that leads us to ask: Is contemporary architecture/design the same as modern architecture/design? The answer is no, and a little bit of yes. To be very literal, contemporary means now, while modern refers to technological and engineering developments that date back to the turn of the 20th Century.
No matter how many ways you use your space or how many times each year you change out your tchotchkes, you can find living room ideas in the collection of inspiration pieces we’ve gathered and shared below. From ultra-formal to ultra-comfortable, your living room can become the blank slate upon which you introduce your home’s design.
Decorating. If you can’t afford a full gut-job then redecorating is one way to breath new life into the space without spending a fortune. There are many easy bathroom decorating ideas you can implement, from changing the hardware on your cabinetry to a new coat of paint. Colors and textures that might look ostentatious in other rooms in your home are fine in the bathroom, such as dark hues like burgundy or wild prints and patterns. In addition to painting, there are other easy bathroom decor ideas such as refreshing the room’s accessories like floor mats, toilet paper holders, soap dispensers and towels. Pricey items like custom floor patterns or countertop materials won’t be as hard on your budget as they might in a kitchen because the space is much smaller.
Cool off in the summer with colder colors: Along the same lines as warm colors in the fall, cool colors, especially blue, can make your home seem fresh, cool and clean during the summer. A white exterior with blue trim is a popular choice for summer homes and painting projects.
