A trend in the remodeling world is to rekindle vintage looks. One of the more popular options is to create a cottage-core style. This look brings up feelings and memories of cottage atmospheres and simple, cozy living. You may think this type of remodeling project would be limited to bedrooms, kitchens, and living rooms. The truth is, your bathroom can benefit greatly from this retro remodeling idea. If you are considering a cozy look for your bathroom remodeling project, here are some retro ideas to keep in mind.
One of the first steps to creating a retro, cozy bathroom getaway is to use warm woods. Woods that are deep and rich in color, such as walnut and mahogany, are ideal. These woods should be used in more ways than just the cabinets. Consider using the wood to enclose your tub and sink, or even add it as a trim around the room and the shower. The warm woods can give a sense of coziness to the area. They can also give the impression of warmth during the colder winter months.
Marble and Porcelain Accents
The accents you use in the room can directly affect how light or dark the room will be. For example, if you use warm wood on the cabinets, trim, and around the tub and a dark color on the walls, the room may be too dark. Instead of creating a darker room and a possible tunnel- or cave-like experience, consider using marble and porcelain. These lighter touches can add to the warmth of the room while lifting the light in the room as well. With the touch of a warm lighting option, such as warm glow or amber lighting, you can finish off the look.
Focus on Contrasting Textures
Textures are going to be important to the final look and feel of your complete bathroom remodeling project. One way to do this is to have areas where fluffy towels, robes, and other comfort items can be seen. This means creating display options instead of everything being in a drawer or closet. Your remodeling contractor can help with this by creating the display areas and incorporating them into the bathroom. This gives you functionality as well as decorative options.
These are just a few of the many cottage-core and retro-style ideas for your bathroom remodeling project. When you are ready to move forward, consider contacting your remodeling contractors. They can assess the bathroom and determine what remodeling options you should focus on, what should be upgraded, and how to move forward with your plans.
