When you live in your own space, you of course want to design it to appeal to yourself and your guests. You also want to be sure that your design aspects in any room are functional on top of being beautiful in appearance. This is also true in the bathroom. You don't just want a plain, boring bathroom, but you also don't want to design it too much to the point where it can make the space feel cluttered, and unclean. Here's what you should avoid in the bathroom in order to make the design functional and appealing:
- Using Fluorescent Lighting: Using fluorescent lighting in the bathroom is just a big no-no. This is because this type of lighting is extremely harsh and leaves a bluish tint behind. Fluorescent lighting also points out all the flaws in your face when you are doing your hair or make-up while looking at yourself in the mirror. This can affect your self-esteem. Instead, choose LED lighting, which isn't harsh, is more efficient, and the cost has even dropped significantly making these types of lightbulbs affordable to purchase and install in your home. This lighting gives a warm glow that makes it easier to get ready in the morning, and keeps the bathroom looking clean and clear.
- Cluttering the Space: Of course, you don't want clutter anywhere in your home, but this is especially true in the bathroom. The bathroom is a place you spend getting ready in the morning, washing your face, and doing all those things that help you feel clean and more hygienic. With clutter in the way, this can make you feel anything but hygienic and fresh. So be sure that you have sufficient storage space by choosing sinks that have a great deal of storage space underneath, or larger medicine cabinets.
- Using Different Metal Finishes: When it comes to the metal finishes in the bathroom, which includes the shower head, sink faucet, towel rods, and more, you want to be sure that they have the same color finish. Otherwise, the decor in the bathroom can feel cluttered and forced instead of natural and appealing. So if you need to, be sure that you replace these items so that they have the same color finish, or at least are close in hue.
By following these guidelines when designing your bathroom, you can create a space that is comfortable to be in while getting ready in the morning, as well as a space that is comfortable for your guests to be in.
