Having a hard time, settling with the fact for many year? Whether you’re looking to add a classical flair to your walls or single out a contemporary rug for your floor, here are 5 ways to make your bathroom a soothingly serene, bathing experience!
A dark and outdated bathroom goes through an unbelievable alteration to become more bright with watery blue accents. Visible Light-Inducing degradation is a terrific way to wake up a boring bathroom. You can also witness a metallic glaze, creating a textured look that is both modern and full of character. The pop of turquoise prevents monochromatic finishes like dual-tone honeycomb flooring from reading as flat.
Color doesn’t always have to appear as paint on the walls or ceilings. The bath below features a glorious degradation of watery accents.
Wooden vs. Vinyl Windows
Traditional wooden windows are often characterized durability and longevity, and harsh climate conditions resistant. Wooden windows will also add a rich layer of texture. If you however, don’t want this vintage vibe, you can still opt for vinyl windows.
Balancing tradition and modernity within the home is all about moderation, where you find yourself able to complement different design elements in order to create a unique merge.
Wall vs. Floor Tile
Ever wondered how a traditional mosaic pattern would look like with contemporary designs and colors? Or this traditional medium would look like when used in contemporary murals? Mosaic art tiles can add a lot when it comes to your bathroom interior.
In the last few years, many innovations have transfigured the tile industry. Floor tiles wall tiles are complementing an authentic stone appearance of very refined and modern designs .Although this medium is still basically used ornamenting floors, its new concept of composition was managed by a conception of perspective and choice. They brought the medium from floors to jewelries and ornaments arriving to walls, and the choice remains exquisite.
Misused vs. Confused Chair Rail
Your chair rail is another element within your home interior that you can work on to merge traditional with contemporary style. The classical regulations of architecture are definitely the key to a proper size and position of moldings in your bathroom. One of the best tips for chair rails, is to keep in mind the height of window sills. Try to install the windows so that the window sills are the same height as the chair rail. In case your window sills are 40 in. from the floor, run the chair below, and remember: it’s better to slip up on the side of too low rather than too high!

Balancing tradition and modernity in your bathroom is a critical tread that can help you create a balanced look and atmosphere for your home interior.

Here for example, the colorful mosaic of honeycomb tiles is a classic geometric pattern that gives the space a modern yet vintage finesse. Blending old and new to perfection, making the room more charming and warm. Brass had been an unexpected material in bathrooms that is getting more common in contemporary designs.
