A Guide to Choosing the Right Bathroom Theme

Each house has its own unique personality that shines through in the fixtures, appliances, paint colors, furniture, and other home décor. While many people focus on giving their living rooms and bedrooms an extra dose of personality, designing a bathroom can also be a fun way to express yourself and love the home you’re in.

Here is a guide for choosing the right bathroom theme, including bathroom decorating ideas you can implement yourself with simple DIY projects.

Assess Your Personality and What Inspires You

Your bathroom theme ideas should be central to who you are as a person and what things bring you joy in life. Take an objective look at the clothes you wear, the jewelry you love, and what types of landscapes you are attracted to. These assessments will help you gravitate towards bathroom decorating ideas that are classic, modern, eclectic, country, rustic, southwestern, or another lovely style.

Decide What Color Palettes You Enjoy

While you’re thinking about these things, also consider what your favorite colors are and the vibe you want your bathroom to have. If you want your bathroom to have a serene, spa-like feel, perhaps choose shades of blue or green. If you want your bathroom to energize you to get ready in the morning, perhaps a light yellow or purple shade would do well when designing a bathroom.

Commit to Showcasing Your Own Taste, Not Someone Else’s

Your bathroom is your own personal space, and feel free to "steal" ideas from other people’s bathrooms, but don’t feel like you have to exactly copy design magazines. The bathroom is a great place to showcase your own tastes after you’ve gotten a good sense of what options are available and inspires you at one of our New York showrooms.

Measure Your Bathroom to Get the Right Sizes

Bathrooms often feature tight spaces without a lot of leeway with how much room you have to work with. This is why it’s so important to take good measurements so that you know how much of certain items to buy. For example, you’ll need to take bathroom measurements before buying tiles, paint, wallpaper, fixtures, accents, and accessories.

Personalize with Fixtures and Hardware

An easy and affordable way to implement your bathroom decorating ideas is to add some new fixtures and hardware to your existing bathroom. You can reinforce your bathroom theme with a coordinating bathroom faucet or bathroom sink, for example. For an easy DIY project, you can update your hardware to suit your new theme by adding new cabinet knobs, pulls, and accessories.

Experiment with Fun Touches and Accessories

What really makes a bathroom theme stand out and be unique are the finishing touches and accessories that you add to make it more personalized. Bathroom accents like mirrors and bathroom seating can help you pull your theme together in a cohesive way. From there, it’s easy to add a bouquet of flowers, framed artwork, or mementos from your travels to help your family members and guests embrace your bathroom theme ideas and appreciate all the thought and effort you put into them!
