Bathrooms are a space where you can really go wild and enjoy
bringing some design fantasy into reality. This article gives a
few ideas on what can be done in your bathroom using mirrors and
Bathrooms can be one of the easiest rooms in your entire house
to decorate, and yet they are sometimes overlooked. Why not make
sure that your bathroom is decorated as thoughtfully as the rest
of your house? Are you hard-pressed to find some excellent ideas
for decorating your bathroom? Well, check out some of these ideas.
A mirror can be a wonderful decoration in your bathroom. Mirrors
really add depth to even small bathrooms. A mirrored medicinal cabinet
is an excellent choice for some bathrooms. They are multi-functional
they help store your bathroom necessities, and can also help you
check the back of your hairstyle (if it has hinged doors that face
one another or another mirror...)
If you already have plenty of storage, though, you may want to
just go out and pick up a beautiful mirror to hang above your sink.
It can be the centerpiece of your entire bathroom if it has the
right frame. Oval mirrors look lovely over pedestal sinks.
You may want or already have a mirror that practically takes up
an entire wall. These mirrors can really open up the space of your
bathroom. To make them a bit more interesting, you can buy a window-frosting
kit and stencil some designs onto your mirror. You can even make
up your own design to fit what ever motif you want for your bathroom.
If you have a big, basic mirror, another way to dress it up is
to actually place another mirror over it. Yes, this may seem like
a crazy idea, but it can have a really beautiful effect. Yes, you
can hammer directly into the mirror, but make sure you do it correctly
and with proper padding so that you do not crack your mirror. Check
with an expert before trying this.
The right lighting can also make a big improvement on your bathroom.
Lighting may not seem like a bathroom decoration, but the right
light fixture cannot only add to the style of your room, but it
can also make all of your other special details in your bathroom
really stand out. The right lighting can also make it much easier
for you to get ready in the morning.
Lighting and mirrors are two things that you may want to consider
splurging on for your bathroom. Less expensive bathroom decorating
ideas include simply getting matching paint, shower curtain, bath
mats and bath accessories. Go wild.
