Picture class. Feel the warm spa ambiance wrapped around you. Envision lavish bathroom fixtures. Hear the sound of a hot bath being drawn for you. These are the sensations of an elegant bathroom. For many years there has been a desire to create a bathroom different from most, setting your style apart from everyone else around you. A brown monochrome design will allow you to have the warm, spa like experience everyone desires, but few are fortunate enough to have. Continue reading to learn the crucial necessities to creating this monochrome bathroom design.
Color: Color choices vary from person to person. Some may like white walls for a bathroom, while others may prefer the dark warm tones in their special place. Nonetheless, whatever colors you choose for your bathroom will look great! But let us suggest, for the monochrome bathroom we are designing with you today, try a silver tile. More specifically, an Arabesco Silver Leaf Field Tile. This will add the elegance you are looking for, with a little “pizzaz” as well. The tone of this tile has a little shimmer and shine to it, giving you a little something extra.
Sinks and Surfaces: When creating your warm and inviting bathroom, the one thing to keep in mind are what materials do you want your sink and countertops to be made out of? To go along with the look of our “monochrome bathroom,” Ceramic sinks and countertops would give the “pop” of color your bathroom will need. Since you will be incorporating dark wood, silver and golds, the room will need that crisp white sink to stand out. Ceramics are very easy to maintain and are sturdy and durable.
Floors: When deciding what floors to choose, remember to take a look at the wall color/tile you decided on. If you chose to paint the walls, go with a matching tile or marble, to bring out the colors in the tile and on the wall. If you went with our suggestion of the silver leaf tile, go with a dark hardwood! It gives a rich, serene feeling, immediately making your bathroom feel like a retreat. A plain white marble will also suffice.
Bathtub: Choosing the tub for your bathroom could be one of the most important decisions. This bathtub will be the statement piece you first notice when you walk into the bathroom. Ceramic, dark wood and even tile bathtubs will make the statement you’re looking for. Whether it be an elegant claw foot tub, one with legs or one that sits alone, it will be the best fixture in the whole bathroom. (At least for us!)
Lighting and Accessories: Once you have all the major decisions out of the way, its time to decide what kind of accents and lighting you would like in your newly renovated bathroom. May we suggest a beautiful chandelier to set the mood?
Having these types of light fixtures hanging in the center of your bathroom will not only create the ultimate elegant look, but it will give you the option to dim the lights at night, and turn them on fully when need be.
Other accessories: When decorating your bathroom, keep in mind the color scheme you have already chosen. Lots of Gold? Maybe stay with neutral ceramic touches. Do you need an extra pop of color? Gold accents may be the way to go! Here are some selections and ideas to choose from.
