GIVE CACHET TO THE TOILETS WITH AN ORIGINAL DECORATION
Who said cabinets had to be sanitized? Especially not us. If white remains a safe bet visually enlarging the space and illuminating it, nothing prevents you from bringing a touch of color in paint or on a bright material. And decorating your toilet without looking corny is very simple.
Placed on the floor or on the walls, the materials also serve as decoration, bringing a certain originality to the toilets. An essential natural material, wood warms up this soulless room. Its different essences ranging from light or brown, with veins or an aged effect, can radically change the atmosphere of this small space. Cement tiles have in turn become the stars of toilets. Dressed in patterns and vibrant colors, they make a difference without the need for additional additions. All models of tiling invite themselves easily to the little corner, in addition to being easy to maintain, they have multiple colors and very decorative finishes. As in character bathrooms, marble adorns the cabinets with its elegance, while the more up-to-date terrazzo delicately energizes them. Finally, original and inspiring, the panoramic or printed wallpaper is happy to be placed on the walls for an almost unusual decoration.
The main color side rule? Have fun, although you have to skip some tones. Pastels tarnish when red attacks. Black is appreciated by touch on a wall, but to avoid in total look. Prefer the soft and ideal lilac for a Provençal decoration to the now obsolete purple. Intense shades such as blue and dark green as well as mustard yellow will give depth. The latter can be chosen more lively in order to brighten up the space.
HOW TO MODERNIZE TOILETS?
Nothing like modernity to have small corners with timeless decoration. By picking from the materials and colors mentioned, it is easy to create a piece to your liking that will not age. Prefer neutral tones (white, black, shades of brown) or bold colors applied in touches. Modernizing also means renovating. To do this, use a brush and paint to make geometric shapes, a domino effect or completely cover the existing tiles. On the floor, rather than undertake major work, trust the adhesive cement tiles, practical and decorative. This refreshment can be an opportunity to add plants.
