Creating A Rich And Homey Victorian Bathroom
Decorating a home in a classic interior design such as the Victorian style allows you to explore history and search for authentic pieces to include in your rooms. Victorian styles provide a cheerful interior decor for every room in the house, including the bathroom. Rich colours and vibrant floral patterns often represent the Victorian bathroom style. You will also see Victorian bathroom styles that are more romantic, with a focus on lighter colours and lacy trimmings. To create a Victorian bathroom style, choose a colour scheme for your bathroom you enjoy. There is no specific Victorian colour. Instead, colours range from dark to light and bathrooms can vary from light and airy to plush and elegant. Select a combination of three or four colours and make one of those colours your primary colour. The remaining colours are secondary and should complement the primary colour. Bold red, gold and green colours will give your bathroom an elegant look, while lighter colours will make your bathroom feel more spacious. Install appropriate fixtures where you can. Early Victorian sinks and toilets were hand-painted with floral patterns and scrolls. You may want to duplicate this technique in wallpaper or embroidered designs on hand towels. Brass fixtures are another option.
Use small pieces of furniture to enhance the Victorian feel in your bathroom. Decorate with attention to the details in your Victorian bathroom. Pay attention to bathroom fittings and try to recreate Victorian style with knobs and drawer pulls, window treatments, hand towels, soap dishes, mirrors and pictures. Gilded wall sconces and mirrors will give your bathroom a Victorian feel.
