Go natural for your next bathroom makeover

Making over your bathroom is no easy feat, especially if you'll be replacing your old bathroom fixtures. Besides the actual labor and cost involved, there's also the task of choosing the right aesthetic that will complement the existing style of your home. Have you made up your mind about going traditional or contemporary? Perhaps a transitional bathroom is what you need to tie all styles together.

Whichever you choose, one thing remains: You have to pick a style that will be functional while satisfying all your decorative needs. If you have a window that overlooks some gorgeous scenery, for instance, why not take that as inspiration and create a setting using natural materials?

Opt for a bathroom vanity with wood cabinets that can add an organic element into the space. Additionally, bamboo is trending as the "it" material for everything, from blinds to other decors. Choosing pebbles in the shower as opposed to traditional tiles will also elevate the space, mimicking a natural environment that's as soothing as it is appealing.
