The best way to approach bathroom décor is to start off selecting a theme for the bathroom. Since bathrooms are relatively smaller areas, it’s best to stick with a single primary theme or else you could end up with a bathroom that looks cluttered instead of elegant.
Once you selected the theme of your choice, you can go all out and choose wall art, bathroom rugs, a shower curtain and other accessories that are built around the theme. If repainting the walls or changing the wallpaper is not on your bathroom decorating agenda, be sure to select a theme that goes with your existing wall-color scheme.
Seashell Bathroom Décor
Seashell theme décor is among the most popular bathroom décor theme. Because most natural seashells are light in color, accessories based on this theme tend to be in light shades of beige, pearl and a variety of pastels. Incorporating a combination of real seashells with decorative elements that feature depictions of shells can give the bathroom a delightfully inviting look. Towels with sea shell appliqués, shell-shaped soap dishes, a shower curtain decorated with shells and wall art that depicts shells give your bathroom a coordinated look that is at once warm and inviting.
Those who live near the water or enjoy spending time on the water often choose to decorate their bathrooms using a nautical theme. If you like the idea of a nautical theme, you’ll be able to select among a variety of different types of bathroom accessories. Sailboats and tall ships are very popular nautical design elements, and are typically a combination of dark wood, navy blue and tan colors. Be careful when choosing the blue hues that will go on the wall of your bathroom as the wrong shade of blue can make the room feel cold and uninviting.
Fish Bathroom Décor
Bright, primary colors are commonly used in fish bathroom décor. This is a popular theme for children’s bathrooms. Kids love clear shower curtains stamped with bright, bold fish and walls painted with the coordinating bright shades. They’ll also enjoy drying off with bright towels covered in matching fish. This is a great way to make having a bath fun for the children. You could have toys that are similar to the colors and the styles and make it feel like their own special room.
Dolphin Bathroom Decoration
Dolphins are a very popular collectible item throughout the home. There are many different types and styles of dolphin bathroom accessories including wall art, towels, shower curtains, trash cans and much more. While most people typically chose to decorate the bathroom blue when using dolphin styles, painting your bathroom a shade of white or cream and using the dolphins to give the room some extra color will make your bathroom unlike any other.
Another very popular theme for bathroom décor involves utilizing angels as a decorative element. There are many different styles of angel décor, ranging from Victorian era angels to cherubs. Regardless of the type of angel you prefer, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the wide variety of bathroom décor items that feature an angel theme.
No matter the décor theme you choose you will be delighted in the range of accessories you can find. From area rugs to scatter cushions to curtains the choices are endless. And if you ever can't find an accessory in the exact theme, pick out one color and find them in that. Like a solid pink area rug or a bright yellow throw.
