Creative Bathroom Design and Decor Ideas




A bathroom could be a mundane room in your home or it could be a place of indulgence and comfort. It’s up to you use small design and aesthetic changes to turn it into the latter. The key is to know how the bathroom will be used and to design around it.

This doesn’t need to be an expensive investment but it needs to be one that you plan out with great care. That way, each item and each aesthetic choice will have its place in the bathroom.

Organic accents


Bathrooms could often feel a bit small and even claustrophobic. One of the ways of dealing with this is to add organic accents and make the bathroom feel more natural and thus more open and with enough room to breathe. This also gives you a variety of options in terms of design and aesthetic.

This is mostly about adding wood and stone elements to your bathroom. What they will be is up to you and it depends on how much room and funds you have available. It’s these items that will make the bathroom appear warmer and more personal.

Luxury furniture


There used to be a time when bathroom lounges were the norm for the most luxurious bathrooms but then they fell out of favor. As is often the case, these retro features find ways to get back into fashion and this is the case with comfortable sofas and bathroom benches as well.

The lounge areas only make sense if you have a large enough bathroom to accommodate them and if it’s lit well enough so that you can use it to its full potential. It’s also important to choose the furniture that can be used in a bathroom having in mind the moisture and the amount of fresh air you have.

The tub

The tub is the centerpiece of bathroom design and it should be chosen with both style and purpose in mind. If you’re planning to do a larger remodeling project, it might be best to install a freestanding tub since it’s a stunning feature but it requires you to remove tiles from the floor in order to install it.

The tub could be used as a statement piece especially if you choose a large tub and if you’re ready to experiment with its shape and overall look.

Black and white

The color and décor are the last things to decide on but it’s still something you should have in mind during the whole remodeling since it’s the color scheme that will bind the whole bathroom together. Lately many decide to go with a minimalistic look for their bathrooms since it’s both clean and soothing.

Black and white design will do the job. It’s a classic combination and it keeps the look neat and organized while not getting boring and mundane. With this color scheme, small details such as brass accents and faucets pop up even more and become more important.


In the end, it’s the small and quirky details that will turn the bathroom into a place of your own. Items such as chalkboards or walls made to resemble chalkboards allow you to add a personal touch to the bathroom and to make it more versatile and changeable.

This is especially true for family bathrooms that are used by a few people in the household. Each of the family members could add their own part to the wall or board and express their creativity.

The bathroom design should be something you put some thought into since that’s a room that should be private, comfortable and indulgent. Don’t hesitate to go a bit outside of the box but with this goal in mind.

    When choosing how to decorate a bathroom wall, the homeowner needs to take a lot of things into consideration at once. First of all, it’s a matter of your personal style and aesthetic and the walls will play a big role in setting those up since they take up the most space in a small room such as the bathroom. Secondly, the bathroom walls also need to be painted with how the room will be used in mind. Regardless of what kind of AC you have and how well ventilated it is, you’ll still need to choose wall paint that can stand the moist environment. Vinyl wallpaper When your main goal is functionality, this is the best option for you. That’s because you can remove and reinstall the vinyl wallpapers yourself a couple of times. They could also be designed by choosing the patterns online and having them shipped to your home. However, there are also downsides in terms of where the vinyl could be applied. It won’t be able to stick if the surface is rough and it’s known to peel off when there’s too much moisture. Paint Most homeowners don’t really think about regular indoor paint when it comes to bathroom decoration but it can be quite applicable and nice-looking if you choose the right type of paint. It’s, therefore, a good idea to turn to experts such as those who provide painting services in Strathfield to choose the paint for you. It’s best to use semi-gloss or even high gloss paint since it will be more suitable for the moist environment. This is also the least expensive wall design option out there and it can also be combined with other covers such as using tiles for a portion of the walls and combining it with the paint for the areas that won’t get as wet. Ceramic tiles Ceramic tiles are a classic choice for bathroom wall design and there’s a reason for it. That’s mostly because they are the best suited to dealing with moisture. There are also a lot of options when it comes to style, color and size and these could transform the whole bathroom. The main choice to make, therefore, is about the design of the tiles itself. The tiles have grout, meaning lines and they create patterns. This is something you should have in mind and especially consider how they will clash with the lighting. Beadboards Beadboards can only be used on the lower half of the walls but for the most part, that’s the part that needs to be protected from the moist. Have in mind that this means that you can combine them with a variety of different materials to cover the rest of the wall. It’s best to get boards that are eight feet long and four feet high. This will give you more options when it comes to installing the boards. It’s also a good idea to purchase individual planks to get a more accurate historic look. Tileboards At first glance, you can’t see the difference between the tileboards and ordinary ceramic tiles. However, they come in rather large panels which make them easy to install. Tiles, on the other hand, need to be installed one by one. The difference in quality is mostly noticeable in how much the board looks like the actual ceramic tiles and if you want to mimic the look, you’ll need to pay more. They are also less expensive than the tiles. Designing bathroom walls should be done with functionality in mind but they are also a way to decorate the bathroom and create your own aesthetic. You’ll need to choose the material first and foremost based on what’s best for moisture.

    We love to explore possibilities with our customers. While tricky, it is not altogether impossible to do a conversion in many situations - regardless of whether you are in an apartment or a landed unit. We are able to help many clients understand why they are able to (or why not) have a beautiful wall mounted toilet bowl system at home. So you never have to walk away with a "What if?" or have to take answers at face value. Have concerns about maintenance? Read our previous article about why you shouldn't be worried right here ! Then pop back in here to get started in your first step to having your dream bathroom! Here are real-case frequently asked questions (FAQ) and our general advice: FAQ: How is the conversion from floor standing toilet to wall mounted toilet really done? The very first thing your contractors will need to do is to build a wall to conceal the flushing cistern. This makes the place look neater and just so much more jazzier! The wall has to be of sufficient depth to be able to conceal the following: flushing system - most require about 150mm depth original waste outlet on the floor - recommended not greater than 8 inch Depending on the building method used, the construction of the wall will typically needs anywhere between 150 to 250mm. In this example, the Valsir Winner S concealed cistern is being installed in a private apartment unit. The original waste outlet of the floor was approximately 3 inches. It had a floor standing toilet before the renovation. Due to space availability, the contractor was also able to shift the position of the new toilet to the left by about 6 inches thereby creating more space for the future basin vanity area on the right. At the stage shown, the cistern has already been put up and the waste pipes are in place. All ready for the wall to be erected using bricks; or hollow concrete blocks; or gypsum boards and then eventual tiling. It is an extremely neat and tidy work and does not affect water proofing in anyway. Here's another look at the constructed wall a few days later. Perfect and all ready for tiling and final WC installation. In most situations you would not be able to significantly change the location of your toilet - but that is not always true - come down and have a chat with us to find out in more detail on the possibilities. Tip: Always ensure to engage an experienced contractor with licensed plumbers to carry out the works. The last thing you need is some one who doesn't know how to handle the installation and goof everything up. FAQ: What height will the wall be? We usually like to take note of the eventual layout of your bathroom. We want to help to ensure that the final look is clean and neat without strange visuals especially in relation to the basin vanity area. Here is a simple visual example. In this situation, the wall for the WC is constructed higher than the basin area. This results in a less visually appealing design. The height of the toilet wall is not in line with the basin nor the basin vanity unit. This draws the viewer's eyes in all directions and creates a messy feel. We want to make the place achieve a much more coordinated, beautiful and functional look by eliminating multiple heights. There are many creative ways to work around such problems as shown in these examples: If you have a linear bathroom layout, you could build the wall across one entire wall to create functional space for the shower area. This is an easy way to add class to the overall design without costing an arm and a leg. Or just build a wall up for the WC and basin area and opt for a wall mounted or free standing basin instead. This reduces the element of a lower basin counter height adding multiple dimensions to the look How about building the wall up right to the ceiling and creating a cavity area for display and functional use? Sounds perfect to us! And there we go! Converting to a wall mount toilet instead of the traditional floor standing one is not so daunting a task after all. While it is not possible ALL the time, it certainly is feasible in the right conditions. Like and share this article with someone you know who would love these designs!
