Practically speaking, in order to increase the comfort of your home, your bathroom has to provide the feeling of relaxation.  You may not be an interior designer, but you do know what you like and what you don’t like.  You do know what makes you feel comfortable, relaxed, and what fits your personality.  

           There are many styles involved in the process of designing your own bathroom, but this is an advantage.  This affords you opportunity to find the style that fits you. If you have original ideas on what your bath should look like, then the results will meet your expectations . . . comfort, relaxation, and an expression of who you are.  There are several things you need to take into consideration when you are developing your bathroom decor ideas.

         The most critically important thing to decide as you design your bathroom is lighting.  Lighting is standard decor in your bathroom.  Lighting sets the mood and controls the overall image of your bathroom. The mirror you choose comes in a close second.  It should reflect your personal style to be sure, but functionally it is the one piece of bathroom décor that can enhance the effects of lighting, and even expand one’s perception of the size of the room.  Since the bathroom is often the smallest room in the house, the right choice becomes quite important.

The next aspect of adding your personal design to your bathroom is represented by the accessories you actually choose.  These accessories are the “theme” of your bathroom, and materialize through decorative holders for toothbrushes, towel racks, hooks, baskets, soap dishes, shelving, and many other accessories. The shower curtain is also a very important accessory to help you complete the overall look of the entire room.

      Your bathroom decor ideas will add comfort to your life through your personal art in the form of design.  Your successful results will be original and personal and you’ll feel a real sense of accomplishment and self expression.
