When it comes to choosing a style for your bathroom, design experts say that the overall look of your home often dictates the look of the space. However, some choose to create a unique room that stands out from the rest of the home.
HGTV offers some hints on determining what bathroom style is right for you - whether it's traditional, modern or contemporary.
A traditional bathroom is "generally formal in style, with classic architectural details," according to HGTV.com. Traditional bathroom vanities are often constructed with dark wood finishes, feature embellishments or carvings, and are topped with materials such as marble or granite.
A modern bathroom features clean lines and a sleek, clutter-free look. Geometric shapes are often featured, as are materials ranging from glass, chrome and solid-surface vanity tops. While white is a common color found in many modern bathrooms, some people choose to add splashes of bright colors as well.
According to HomeDIT.com, a contemporary bathroom often features straight and simple silhouettes, such as bathroom vanities that are "minimalistic, uncomplicated and simple," according to the website. Common color combinations for rooms of this style include blends of neutral and bold colors.
No matter what style you prefer, design experts say you should choose bathroom accessories and fixtures that complete the look.
