How to WOW with Bathroom Design


Having a great bathroom design can take the interior of your home to the next level. Bathrooms used to only be designed for function, but now they can be designed to feel like a personal spa or relaxing getaway. John Elliott Interiors is the best interior designer at the Lake of the Ozarks, so we know exactly how to take a bathroom that is "blah" and turn it into "wow". Keep reading to hear our tips about how to design a beautiful bathroom.

Incorporate Nature

Mossy green towels, bamboo shower bench, slate grey tiles... There are numerous ways to bring nature into your bathroom space for a harmonious feel. You can even take the inspiration literally and bring plants into your bathroom. Plants have been shown in some studies to help improve mood and air quality. Having greenery in your bathroom can make it seem more peaceful and spa-like, and who doesn't want to feel like they're entering a spa each morning?

Minimalism is Key

Out of all the rooms in your home, the bathroom is one of the best places to use minimalism for your design. To invoke a clean, fresh feel in your bathroom, remove all clutter. Rather than filling the counter tops with decorations and several care items, keep the design simple. Use one large picture with muted, peaceful colors instead of littering the space with multiple portraits. Rather than storing items in the open, opt for built-in shelving and attractive organizers to keep a clean eye-line and hide the clutter out of view. To add a little interest and personality to your bathroom design, choose a shower tile with a unique pattern and brighter colors. The sleekness of the tile and the neutral surroundings will feel clean and uncluttered while still adding a pop of intrigue to the space.

Focus on Lighting 

Use lighting that matches the rest of the bathroom design for a continuous look. If your theme is antique with a claw-foot tub, a great option could be iron fixtures. For a more modern feel, use bright lighting with minimal framing and clean lines. Install dimmers for an enhanced spa-like atmosphere. Bright lights can greet you in the morning, while a soft glow can help you relax during your evening bath.

Use a Freestanding Tub

Tub and shower combos are starting to go out of style and can feel cheap in some spaces. Up the "wow" factor in your bathroom with a freestanding tub. Installing a freestanding tub in your bathroom can help define the high-quality look and feel of the space in a striking way. Choose a vintage claw-foot tub for an old-world antique feel, or go with a rectangular freestanding tub for a sleek, modern look.
