Using Specific Colors for Bathroom Remodeling Projects
When you are done with your remodeling project, the color you choose is what brings out its beauty. We all have favorite colors that we want to be everywhere but when selecting the color to paint your bathroom your favorite color may not be the best option. The color you choose will depend on the style and size of your bathroom, and also they should harmonize well with the rest of your home’s theme and create a desirable mood. Here are ideas from our bathroom remodeling contractors on using specific colors for your bathroom remodeling projects:
The monochromatic approach is one of the modern style used painting bathroom remodeling projects. Different shades and hues of the same color are used to create a mood and crown the overall style. You can get away with using your favorite color when using this approach, but you have to put in mind the general mood you want your color to bring to the room. Also when you have limited physical space, the monochromatic approach can make your bathroom appear bigger. Choose a bright color and play around with its range of shades and hues. You can use vertical and horizontal patterns to make your bathroom appear wider and increase the focal height. The professionals at Icon Building Group know their colors and how they can use it to make your bathroom the place to be and also add a touch of your personality to it.
When you go for the complementary color style, your bathroom will have high energy color scheme. Complementary colors fall on the opposite side of each other on the color wheel, and they can be a great option for small bathrooms because they increase the focal space. You can go with vibrant colors to be expressive and also bring a jovial mood. Green and blue shades add a relaxing mood to your bathroom. However, the room’s structure will decide how you apply the complementary colors, and you can incorporate different hues to create visual continuity in your bathroom. Avoid using too much color when you are using vibrant colors to achieve balance and harmony.
Neutral colors bring a calm and peaceful mood to your room. You can blend two neutral colors to eliminate boredom and still achieve an excellent color atmosphere. When you are blending two neutral colors, you have to follow the rule of distribution i.e. 70-30. This type of color combination is good for a bigger bathroom, but you can add unique patterns to make the room appear bigger if you want to use this approach in a small bathroom. For smaller bathrooms, try making the ceiling and the floor the same color to make this style work for you.
To make your bathroom remodeling unique, you can try out something out of the ordinary. People assume that dark colors are a ‘no go zone’ when you are remodeling a bathroom with limited physical space. There are some dark shades such as cocoa that give a dramatic contrast if complement well with another color. The reason that dark colors make the room appear smaller is that there is nothing much going on. Play with the accessories and lighting of your bathroom to give your eyes more activities.
When you are experimental and daring you can go, for triadic color schemes to help you express your personality and also achieve elegance. You can use the colors from other rooms and make them smoothly streamline in your bathroom. However, you should remember to use the 60-30-10 proportion rule to help get the best out of this style.
Bathrooms are also a place to relax and think about the impossible. The best designers understand the science behind every color and how to manipulate it to give your room the best appearance. Choose a color that you are comfortable with and will set the right mood in the room. You can use color to make the room appear bigger so that you don’t feel suffocated by space; for bigger bathrooms color can also be used to reduce the emptiness vibe that comes with large rooms. There so many ways to achieve the ultimate look for your bathroom remodeling project, all you need is an outstanding designer by your side.
