Use White Paneling

For a traditional feel in your bathroom, consider lining the walls with wooden paneling. Using some tongue-and-groove paneling gives the room a traditional country feel. Paint the paneling with a white gloss finish to brighten up the room, then accent it with colored accessories.

Designing your bathroom and fitting in furniture can be a challenge, since many bathrooms have limited space. You want to create a room that is comfortable and functional, and not too overcrowded. One theme which is gaining popularity is the use of a white gloss finish. This can give your room a sleek, clean look. Here are some tips on using white gloss in your bathroom.

Matte White Paint Expands Your Space

When you use white paint on your walls, it can make any space look than if you use darker colors. In the bathroom, you can use glossy white tiles on the walls, and matte or satin white paint on the bathroom furniture.White will make your bathroom seem brighter and more inviting. Maintain balance and pick 2-3 main shades to create the most welcoming environment.

Try Black and White

For a chic looking bathroom, you can use a combination of black and white. You can mix black and white tiles in a checked pattern on the floors or walls. You can then complement this with black or white glossy finished bathroom furniture and fixtures. The look can be either traditional or modern. As for the furniture, select pastels – light pink, mint and lemon are ideal choices you can take into consideration.

Add Colored Tiles

When you have an all-white bathroom, you want to add some color in places for contrast and visual interest. One way to do this is to add a strip of brightly colored tiles along the bathroom wall. Bright jewel tones will liven up the room, while a deep aqua color can add a soothing touch. Select a color that you can complement with other decor elements. A recent trend in bath design is to add flower pots for a Zen effect. And since you’re focusing on the green color, include other décor elements in green too, like grass-green rugs and shower curtains.

Paint Wooden Cupboards

You can find vintage country-style wooden cupboards at thrift stores or yard sales, then paint them glossy white to fit with your bathroom design. These are perfect for storing towels or toiletries, or for concealing plumbing below the sink. Add some fresh flowers for a burst of color and a floral scent.

Try White Wicker Furniture

Wicker furniture has a light, airy feel, which can be an advantage in a small room. When you paint the furniture a glossy white, this is especially true. You can find wicker chests, tables, or hampers that you can use in a bathroom. You can also use wicker baskets for both storage and decor. Wicker is such a versatile material; often used for patio décor, it can fit perfectly in a bathroom, too. The key to having a successful décor is to select quality wicker that is beautifully designed and crafted.

Add Pops Of Color

When you have a white gloss theme, you can liven it up by adding touches of bold color here and there. This can be done with bright modern artworks on the walls, or bold colored bath mats. If you have a strip of colored tiles, you can stack a shelf with fresh towels in a coordinated color.

Unlike decorating kitchens and living rooms, decorating bathrooms is a bit more challenging. First of all, there’s one thing you should be aware of: bath furniture is prone to extreme humidity, so it’s extremely important to select waterproof pieces. Avoid hardwood because it’s expensive and it will bloat. Why throw important sums of cash out the window when you can stay safe with additional materials like plastic, bamboo, and wicker?

Interior Designers Reveal Their Favorite White Paints

The Perfect White Paint
Any skilled designer knows that selecting the perfect white paint is anything but simple. What’s a seemingly basic element—the essence of simplicity—proves to be one of the most complex
decisions with hundreds of possibilities. We asked 11 decorators to share their tried-and-true favorites when it comes to this dynamic shade of nothing.Who: Eric Cohler, What: China White, RMI-74, Benajmin Moore

Why: “It seldom fails me, no matter where in the country I use it. It
doesn’t break green or pink, even in strange San Francisco light. When
held up against pure white it has an off-white or greige appearance, but
on its own, it holds up as true white—but with a little more body. And
make sure you get it in low-VOC or no-VOC.”

Who: Brad Ford, What: All White, No. 2005, Farrow & Ball

Why: “It's like a good friend. Easy to be around, dependable, and it makes
you and all the things around you look terrific. It stays consistent in
any light, but in the afternoon, it can really make a room feel like
it’s glowing. And while it works for any room, it’s especially nice for a
space with great artwork.”
