Tile in the bathroom

The walls and the floor in the bathroom are best tiled - it is quite strong material that does not rot and is cleaned from dirt.

Finishing Options

On the places of the walls, which get water, it is recommended to lay the tile, as this is the most resistant to moisture material. If the bathroom is large, different walls can be decorated with various finishing materials. These can be plastic panels, natural or artificial stone and even wood. Only a tree before installation is recommended to be treated with a special compound that will make it resistant to moisture. The design of a large bathroom, tiled with tiles, can include areas with different colors of tile. For example, wide vertical stripes of dark or black tiles on a light background make the room higher. This is true when the height is underestimated by a suspended lath ceiling.

Decorating the bathroom with drawings and mosaics is also a good option. Of course, to make a list of walls in the bathroom can only be done by professionals. Although there is a wonderful replacement - wallpapers with a suitable pattern. There are wallpapers that are specially designed for stickers in the bathroom.

Some manufacturers produce tiles with a large pattern. Mounting such ceramics correctly, a picture is formed on the wall, which is not afraid of water.

Selection of lighting

Good lighting is a very important condition for the images to look good. If the general lighting is not enough, then you need to make a highlight.

In large bathrooms for lighting use rotary fixtures and sconces fixed on the wall. You can also use ceiling spotlights by selecting models on which you can adjust the direction of light. Often, to decorate the bathroom use the lighting of the bath and jacuzzi. It should be noted that such work is best entrusted to professionals, since water and electricity are a rather dangerous combination. Do and illuminate the floor with LED lamps, which looks very good when the main light is put out in the bath.

For general lighting in large rooms use pendant lamps of various models. There are special lamps designed to stay in rooms with high humidity. Sometimes, when decorating a bathroom, it constructs a false window, which adds a certain charm and serves as an additional source of light.

Thinking about the design options, you need to think about furniture that will be installed in the bathroom. Of course, if the bathroom is in Khrushchev, then there is no furniture to talk about.

On the walls are mounted only small shelves, hangers, soap dishes. But if the bathroom is large, then it is possible to install a roomy closet for bath accessories, large shelves and pedestals. Choose the furniture you need from a material that is not afraid of moisture. Otherwise, it will have to be changed very soon.

Correctly selected design of the bathroom will make it a room, in its attractive appearance and convenience, no different from other rooms in the house or apartment.

Of course, the design should be such that it fully meets the tastes and preferences of the owners.
