People who love expressing themselves and who are proud of their creativity often love the idea of eclecticism in interior design too. Eclectic bathrooms are decorated with items and styles which are otherwise contrasting, but when combined the right way become complementary and playful. Mixing and matching accessories, colors, patterns, and styles will allow you not only to express yourself, but also to explore trends you would otherwise overlook.
When you don’t have a lot of space to improvise and make big changes in design, you can try adding splashes of color to otherwise plain room. If your bathroom is painted in neutrals: white with the addition of blue or green, you can make it more inviting and much more interesting by adding different patterns. Try adding wallpapers on walls or having bright tiles on the floor to get that charming look you and your guests will love. If you don’t have enough time or money to make such changes, a creative shower curtain with an interesting print will do the trick.
Trinkets on shelves
Eclectic design means that you can use décor pieces you would otherwise use in living room or in a hallway and still make it work. Décor accessories are a great way to express your personal style and make the bathroom a reflection of yourself. A nice, gallery wall-style display of your favorite artwork or even your own photography, and having colorful photo frames contrasting black-and-white photos will make people notice the details. You can also have plants in the bathroom as certain plants love the warmth and moisture, and if you keep them in hand-painted pots it will be as if you’re displaying your own art.
Play with materials
White tubs are the norm but they are also boring, which is why you might want to try having a freestanding tub made of scagliola stone in your bathroom instead. Earthly color and texture of this tub will be a contrast to the common tub but the surface is smooth. You can also try getting custom concrete countertops and bath mats made of pebbles or even of real moss. You can make these on your own, and when you have them in the bathroom people will always notice them.
Rustic bathroom accessories
If your bathroom is very modern and minimalistic, you can achieve eclecticism simply by adding few rustic elements to the picture. Simple accessories such as soap and shampoo dispensers, toiletry containers, linens, and a shower can reflect your love for eclectic design so you can choose things in different colors or deliberately pick the ones made of different materials. A rough-hewn bench of natural wood would stand out in an otherwise modern bathroom but it would look great paired with a classic tub on a modern tub stand.
Circular showers are lovely because they look amazing and they can fit perfectly in small bathrooms. They also allow you to pick lovely shower curtains and combine several different mats. Still, circular showers require that you install a ceiling-mount showerhead, which is great when your bathroom is small, but also requires a lot of work. Make sure you have a professional check the attic to make sure there is enough space for all the pipes. Professional plumbers from Fix It Right Plumbing will be able to check your bathroom and attic and install the new showerhead, so you don’t have to worry about making a mistake.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re thinking about renovating your existing bathroom or building a brand new one, having fresh, new ideas is always convenient. Eclectic bathrooms allow you to play with different styles and designs and come up with something unique and likeable that will be a perfect reflection of who you are and what you love.
