Luxury Bathroom Remodeling
Have you ever been in a bathroom that just exudes luxury without the slightest hint of being garish? Luxury doesn’t have to exactly mean opulent, nor does it have to mean a space that’s overly embellished with showy decorative elements. Too much texture with no contrasting features is too busy for the eye.
With too many ornate details, there are too many things for the eye to be attracted to, making what should be decorative turn into something like clutter in our minds. There’s something about luxury that’s represented in clean simplicity. This type of bathroom design makes you feel really comfortable and relaxed. While too much ornament or opulence can actually make the space feel busy and anxious, too little can make you feel cold.
As in all things in life, a balance is necessary. In order to create a luxurious feeling of relaxation in your new bathroom space, you have to hit the mark between opulence and simplicity with your bathroom design.
Here are some luxury bathroom remodeling ideas you’ll want to consider if you’re going for that perfectly balanced warm, clean, welcoming, relaxing ambiance.
Bathroom Designs With Contrasting Textures
Let’s say you opted to install some ornate faucets, handles, and other hardware. The surfaces behind these smaller fixtures needs to be smooth or solid so the ornateness of the hardware stands out. Otherwise, the beauty of the object gets blended into the background of the ornateness behind, making neither look right. For instance, don’t put wallpaper with an ornate design behind a vintage brass & ornate glass faucet. Instead, something smooth and of contrasting color is best to showcase the faucet.
Today’s modern bathroom designs will often incorporate smooth and reflective surfaces that are luxurious without being overly ornate. The modern look of sleek countertops can be paired with streamlined glass mirrors and light fixtures on walls nearby. Pairing these with an ornately carved wooden vanity will incorporate the needed contrast into the design.
Shower glass is always going to be smooth, which is great because what you really want to show off is some ornate and beautiful tile work behind. Don’t just go with something smooth and shiny, try a rough textured tile that’s beautiful. That’s how to play with texture in your bathroom remodeling design. With surfaces for light to reflect off of and some to absorb, the beautiful features of the bathroom will stand out.
Complimentary Floors For Bathroom Remodeling
Flooring should only compliment and bring out the other elements in the room, not overpower them. You don’t want the eye to focus on just the floor when you enter the room. For example, let’s say you remodel your bathroom and choose a gorgeous marble floor.
While there’s nothing wrong with the marble choice, you want to make sure it’s not the only show stopper in the room. Beautiful marble needs other equally gorgeous features in the room that won’t compete but will compliment each other.
You want your countertops, shower surround, bathtub surround, and cabinetry to show well together with the floor complimenting the textures, style, and colors of these areas.
