Once you've created a floor plan, you can begin to develop a unique bathroom style. Begin by looking at the decorations that define the rest of your home. Your new bathroom should merge with the existing style. If your house doesn't have a specific style, choose the look that most appeals to you.
You still need something to unify your design, so start with a color scheme, tile, or vanity that you love, and then look for other elements that will complement your choice. For coherence, it might help to focus on a particular historical era, geographical region, or artistic movement: Victorian, Mediterranean, or Art Deco, for example. With your theme in mind, you can easily choose fixtures, materials, and decorative details to achieve your own unique bathroom style.
A balanced, visually pleasing design is especially important for the relatively confined quarters of the bathroom. Skillfully using form, color, and texture, you can create a mood, camouflage flaws, and even make your bathroom appear larger. Enterprise Home Remodeling can help you get started with a free in-home design estimate.
For now, imagine that you are looking at your bathroom plan head-on. From this perspective, you can make a sketch or elevation drawing. Study the different lines - the vertical lines of the shower stall, the horizontal lines of the cabinet tops - and imagine how they'll lead your gaze through the space. Notice the interplay of shapes created by windows, doors, alcoves, and larger bathroom elements, like the shower stall. Note the fixtures and other major features - are these elements in proportion to the size of the bathroom? If space is limited, choose scaled-down fixtures that reveal as much floor space as possible: a wall-mounted sink instead of a vanity cabinet.
Pale hues work well in a bathroom, reflecting light, which makes the space appear larger. Blues and greens also tend to create an illusion of extra space, and they're especially appropriate in the watery environment of the bathroom. Dark shades can make a narrow bathroom seem shorter, or add drama to a drab one.
If your bathroom is relatively large, dark colors can make it look impressive and stylish. Black and whites create a modern look. If your bathroom is small, stick with a monochromatic color scheme, especially if you want to create a restful mood.
The bathroom is chock-full of textures and patterns that can compete for attention. When you consider how the various surfaces will look together, remember that natural materials, such as wood and stone will contribute to the mix of patterns, as will the grout lines in a tile installation.
