Art Deco bathroom: 4 starting points

  • Color combination. Art Deco style implies most of all the use of such a contrast as the black and white one, which is easy to be applied in a bathroom. Nevertheless, it is not a full stop. You can opt for other bold colors combinations such as dark blue with white, red with silver, green with gold. It should be noted that these shades do not refer only to the background but also to other elements such as the accessories.
  • Bathroom elements. When it comes to the constituent elements of the bathroom, it is worth mentioning that they should also correspond to this particular style. Follow our lead, and you will get it. Regarding the bathroom suites, we suggest you opt for shapes with one or more angles. Consider taps with particular geometric handles, especially the black ones, as it would add glamour even to such a tiny element of the bathroom.

  • Geometric designs. Fabulous geometric designs and sharp patterns are expressive elements of the Art Deco style. When it comes to the bathroom, we suggest you apply them to such units as the tiles, flooring, or floor.

  • Mirror, mirror on the wall! There is no bathroom without a mirror. When it comes to an Art Deco bathroom, we suggest you opt for one or two mirrors that will both enlarge the space and add light to the room. They should not be simple but rather extravagant ones. Consider bevelled mirrors, and this simple variation will solve the problem at once.

We suggest you decorate just one wall this way. As regards the wallpaper itself, you can opt for a tortoiseshell print that will offer the bathroom a luxurious look. Furthermore, this element can be emphasized by adding such bathroom units as a black and white marble sink and brass taps. There is more to come. Bold chandeliers are the last piece of the puzzle, as they will complete the picture.

A new sparkle of color

As mentioned earlier, the black and white combination is not the only variant. You can opt for other colors as well. In this case, we speak about pink and black tiles. It should be noted that it has to be a soothing shade of pink. It is not surprising that we refer to such a combination as it entered the interior design once the art Deco period started.

Classic color palette

We would like to tackle this subject from the point of view of the lighting that is primarily played in this sense by lamps, windows, and mirrors. When it comes to the windows, we suggest you opt for Art Nouveau stained glass that can include a combination of two or three colors, which add a new sparkle of light to the room. As regards the mirror, consider a simple one that would not draw attention from the colorful jewels of the room. It should be noted that such decorative elements will go perfectly with soothing pink walls.

Go all blue

Although this style implies particular combinations, you can also opt for a single color, and royal blue is a perfect choice. It should be noted that it can offer the room a vintage look, but this is when other elements come in place to solve the problem.
