Are you tired of looking at the same uninspired bathroom décor day after day? With the average person spending 2 weeks in the bathroom each year, you want to fully enjoy the décor. Using a generic color palette and design scheme will only harm your home's overall aesthetics. If you're stumped and can't seem to think of any new design styles for your bathroom, keep reading to learn some fun themes that are sure to bring out the best in your bathroom.
You don't have to travel hundreds of miles to enjoy the relaxing elements of the beach. With a little bit of work, you can transform your bathroom into a beach-inspired room, complete with authentic 'beach' accessories. This is not only a beautiful way to decorate a bathroom, but it's also fun. It gives you the opportunity to play around around with unique items that wouldn't work in traditional bathroom settings.
There are several different ways to approach a beach-themed bathroom, but the key thing to remember is that you want to create the feeling of being near the ocean. Painting the walls in a light blue or yellow is an excellent choice that will help you achieve a beach theme. Some decorative accessories that you may want to use include seashells, starfish, old fishing lures (hooks removed), ship-in-a-bottle and fishing net.
#2) Bamboo Jungle
Another fun bathroom theme idea is a bamboo jungle. If you have a natural artistic ability, you can paint bamboo stalks on the walls set against a light blue or green background. If this sounds like too much work, or if you aren't comfortable painting bamboo stalks, you can use either wallpaper or vinyl decals to achieve a similar look.
Creating a bamboo jungle theme in your bathroom is all about using the right colors. Ask yourself what colors would you see in the jungle. The most obvious colors that come to mind are various shades of green, but you'd probably see blue from streams and rivers as well. Try to incorporate these colors into your décor to maximize the 'jungle' effect. You can even go one step further by placing an actual living bamboo plant in your bathroom.
The desert theme is another fun décor idea for bathrooms. Rather than using green and blue colors, this theme is focused around brighter colors.For instance, you could paint the walls white with some sand dunes running halfway up. The bright colors will help to create a warm mood, which is something that many bathrooms lack.
The only real disadvantage to decorating your bathroom in a desert theme is the limitation of accessories. Let's face it, other than sand there's not much else out in the desert. Consider using clay or ceramic accessories that naturally match the walls of your bathroom. You can also hang some Egyptian paintings and artwork on the walls to give the atmosphere an authentic desert feel.
