White Bathroom Decor Ideas
When you think of an all white bathroom, do you envisage a room that’s just a little too stark and clinical to be cozy? White is a great color for the bathroom: it’s clean and fresh and easy to accessorize. Just about everything you might need is available in white, including a huge range of bathroom suites, and often white fittings can be cheaper than colored or wood toned pieces.
The key to decorating a room in white is to vary the shades of white that you use. Whites can be either blue or yellow toned. The difference can be almost imperceptible – you’ll find that creamier whites make a room feel warmer, while sharper white tones are fresh and bright. If you use an accent color in your white bathroom, choose one which complements your shade of white: a tiled feature wall in silver or pewter might suit a bathroom scheme of cooler, fresher whites, while warm wooden tones, rattan storage baskets and sage green paintwork could suit a creamier shade of white.
Incorporating different textures can help to add depth to a scheme. One way of adding some subtle texture to your bathroom is to add wood panelling, painted in white. A creamy white in particular will make this feature look warm and inviting, and wood panelling can be less costly than tile. In colder months, chunky, cable knitted bathmats and cozy towels can be added to warm your bathroom up.
Accessories White Bathrooms Furniture
White bathroom furniture is often the ‘budget’ option: it’s a common finish that can be accessories very easily and suits most room schemes. Laminate bathroom furniture is durable and easy to care for. Choosing a less expensive set of bathroom furniture means that you can accessories to your heart’s content, add your favorite style of decor, and splash out on good quality, well made, attractive brassware that will lift the look of your whole bathroom.
White bathroom suites are the most commonly available type; styles vary from traditional to modern but, whatever style you go for, avoiding unnecessary detailing will keep your bathroom suite from dating too much – meaning that your next bathroom redesign could be a simple redecoration rather than a full refit.
A bathroom that is dark or small will benefit from an all-white makeover, as the shade maximises light, banishes excessive shadow and helps to enlarge a room visually. Adding mirrors will bring in a little detail and yet more light. Vases of flowers will add some accent color that’s not too dense and is very easy to change – plus they will bring a touch of nature and some natural scent into the bathrooms. Choose tall flowers in a large vase if you have few bathroom surfaces: something like this can stand on the floor and still look great.
