Are you tired of looking at plain, boring walls in your bathroom? If so, you should consider decorating them to help liven up the atmosphere with a fresh new look. Contrary to what some people may believe, you don’t have to spend a fortune on bathroom decorations. With a little ingenuity and some of your free time, you can easily transform the decor of your bathroom into something more attractive. The first step in this process is to work on the walls, which play a critical role in the overall atmosphere. Here we’ll go over some simple and effective ideas for decorating bathroom walls.
Because all bathrooms are shaped and styles differently, you’ll need to identify exact what direction you intend on taking your bathroom. Some people enjoy a vintage European theme, while others prefer the look of a more modern or contemporary theme. The fact is that there’s no one single way to decorate a bathroom. If you personally enjoy the look of a style or theme, then use it in your bathroom. After all, this is an area of the house where you’ll be spending a lot of time, so you want to decorate it in a manner that pleases you.
Choosing Your Color Palette
The color palette is one of the most influential elements in a bathroom. Using a poor combination of colors will create a clashing atmosphere that does your bathroom no justice. So, which colors are suitable for use in the bathroom? It really depends on your personal taste of style, but some soothing and relaxing colors are aqua blue, baby blue, taupe, yellow, emerald green and cherry red just to name a few. The key thing to remember is that any colors you choose need to match any surrounding furnishings and accessories; otherwise, you run the risk of forcing colors together that don’t flow with one another.
Frames Photos and Pictures
After you’ve painted the walls in an attractive color, you’ll then need to find some accessories to decorate them with. One of my personal favorite types of bathroom wall decorations are framed photos and pictures. It’s simple, cheap, and practically everyone has extra picture frames laying around the house. You don’t need to use huge frames, as just a couple basic 6×9 ones will suffice. If you have several of them, you can even take your decorating efforts one step further by creating a collage of multiple pictures on the wall.
You can also use the bathroom walls as an outlet for displaying certain types of artwork. Whether it’s a painting, sculpture or just a vinyl sticky decal, bathroom walls are the perfect play to display them. Just remember to stick with elements that go together with the current color palette and theme used in your bathroom.
These are just a couple of the many ways to decorate walls in a bathroom. Have some fun and don’t be afraid to think outside of the box. You can also check out some of the home decor magazines and television shows for more inspiration.
