5 bathroom updates that will never go out of style

If you’re going to update a bathroom and you want your design choices to stand up over time, the first step is determining what styles will be timeless for you specifically.

“People tend to fall into one or two camps,” says interior designer Michael Winn of Winn Design and Build in Northern Virginia. “They want a very classic-looking bathroom, or they want something contemporary and spalike, like the Four Seasons.” Translation: For many people, the bathroom might not be the place to get splashy with trends.

But what if you adore bold colors and patterns? “Sometimes, the most timeless things are the things that you love,” says Katy Harbin, a designer based in North Carolina. “There are people that redo their bathroom every 10 years,” and for them, choosing a paint color of the year and of-the-moment hardware might work.

5 ways to make your bathroom feel more like a spa

From a strictly utilitarian perspective, there’s nothing overly special about a bathroom. After all, it’s where you go to perform life’s most rudimentary routines. But it’s also the place where, at the end of the day, most people spend time winding down and getting ready for bed. If your bathroom is anything but relaxing, you might find yourself anxious and stressed instead of at ease.

Taking note from some of the most relaxing places—spas—you can make your bathroom a haven for nighttime routines that reduce stress and set you up for a restful night’s sleep. Try incorporating these luxurious elements to your own bathroom to make your simple routines feel more like a day at the spa.

How to Design a Bathroom With Color | Home Guides

Orange and blue are a good combination for a high-contrast theme.

The small size of most bathrooms makes them excellent areas to play with color. While a bright or dark color scheme might overwhelm a large room, the bathroom’s close confines keep color under control. If you prefer a tranquil, spa-like atmosphere, muted, natural tones feel calm, but don’t have enough space to become boring. The best thing about trying out new color schemes in the bathroom is that if you don’t like the finished look, you can paint the room over again in a day.

Bright Feels Right

If your bathroom is small and poorly lit, as many are, the judicious use of bright colors can give it a cheery, open appearance. To keep the look exuberant, not riotous, use bright accessories against a backdrop of white or another soft neutral. Picture walls painted a soft gray, sand, creamy white or palest sage, sparked by bright towels, a gaily patterned

How to Use Beadboard for Bathroom Walls | Home Guides

Beadboard is a type of wall board originally made out of individual pieces of wood that locked together in a tongue and groove fitting. The boards were installed vertically around the room, typically as wainscoting.

This classic look can be added to any room of the home, including the bathroom, to bring instant style and detail to the space.

Plain Wainscoting

Depending on the amount of beadboard that will be visible in the bathroom, as well as the style you prefer, one of the most versatile looks to create with beadboard in the bathroom is a simple wainscot. By running the beadboard at waist height throughout the room, you add a cohesive wall design to the entire space. This leaves the walls above the
