When you move into rented apartment, you usually have ready
bathroom with installed units.I lived in many places where I had several
bathrooms styles, sometimes I hated it but sometimes I liked it. Usually, it depends
of the building age that determines of the type of bathroom you will get. The newer
building then of course the newer versions of bathroom units you will get, but it’s
the way how you style it that will make it ‘’yours’’. Sometimes rather hide
things we should expose them and make a feature out of that. Today, I want to
help you to determine what bathroom style you have and show you few tips on how
you can decorate it. I have checked Homebase bathroom suits and picked
my favorite ones to show you how you can style your bathroom to reflect your
personality and to show you how beautiful yet affordable your bathroom can be! All accessories are from Homebase , so you can find it easily.
I have prepared 5 bathroom styles for you. Each bathroom is
different and has different types of accessories. You can easily determine
which is the closest to what you already have by looking at the type of units. This
would make also an awesome guide to you, if you a new home owner and are
looking to get new bathroom. It’s easy to get lost in bathroom stores, especially
if a price is your guide then if you match the wrong units, nothing will look
good. Here, I am your rescue girl! J
Find a bathroom to reflect your personality!
First up, will be ‘’Minimalistic introverter’’. This one
will suit anyone who likes to be surrounded with simplicity and doesn’t like
over the top patterns or textures. This bathroom, is basically anything square
or rectangular. Look into bathroom units
to have this specific shape. When you are choosing your WC unit, these are
usually round but you can easily deal with it by picking the top cover with square
shape. (Just make sure second half put it down after use, it’s the hygienical
thing or the most annoying habit of mine not husband yet! Follow this shapes when choosing with
accessories. You can pick any colours, just don’t go over the rule of 3
colours. This will give you the clean and neat look you really want. Your
bathroom linens should be in one colour with minimal pattern as well.
Next up the ‘’Contemporary Traveler’’. It’s not only for
the one who likes to travel of course but those who likes to dream of
travelling and discover places, even if it means a good book to read every
night! This one also is for the nautical theme fans. I will of course suggest
midnight blue, monochrome colours here etc. You can determine if you have nautical
bathroom by simply checking if your units has this typical ‘boat’ like shape. Here, chose soft wood with ropes and whites.
Here, any engraved and typography type accessories would look fantastic! Don’t
forget the old school mirrors!
‘Modern Diva’ is very popular in many homes. This doesn’t
really need description does it? If you stylish hot mama, or young and
energetic girl, you should totally go for this bathroom! This is the one that
is the easiest to make it wrong as well. Many people add vintage style baskets,
loads floral patterns and the actual style is going into far far away land. If
you have this style bathroom, you can play with colours and patterns but pick
them carefully. Look for soft edges and curved furniture. Here the colour possibilities
are actually endless! You can go for sophisticated purples or pastels. All accessories should follow the shape of
the units, so op for round and modern ones.
‘Geometric freak’ is something I would go in mine! This one is
for the creative minds! This type of bathrooms is less likely to be found in
typical rented apartment, but I had to add this. This is probably the most
difficult one to style. You can’t pick the wrong geometry pattern! Follow the
units design when picking accessories. Count the corners! How many visible you
have? 4?6?8? Try to follow it. Opt for different colour to contrast it. Just
remember, don’t add different geometric pattern because it will clash! It will
look awful. Finish up with statement colour linens!
Last one is probably the most popular and the easiest to
style it! The Vintage junkie! I totally
love it! Here, any shabby chic baskets, soft pastels, browns – anything! You
can play and have fun. Bring the vintage colours out by adding soft florals and
darker linens! Don’t be scared of bringing textures like rose or oak wood &
wicker! Mix ceramic with metallic like copper or bronze.
