Designing for Less – The Master Bathroom

Next in this series, I’d like to talk about the bathroom: specifically the master. The level of design change really depends on the age of your bathroom. If it’s fairly new then all you need are some simple enhancements; towels, a few accents, plants, etc. But if it’s older or outdated remember paint and some hardware are simple fixes you can start with.



Lets start with towels. I really don’t think you need to replace all of them. Your everyday towels will be just fine. I’d change out the ones on ‘display’. Pick your color scheme first and go from there. You can carry over the bedroom colors or use a complimentary color. Both should work out well. Don’t be afraid to mix and match colors and patterns depending on your style. I like to display my towels rolled on a tray or even in a basket given the space. If you have a garden tub, you just fold a few and let them sit on the tub decking. Again, I wouldn’t spend a fortune on towels that might just be used for show.

Now, for the accessories. Add some plants, real or otherwise, maybe a piece of coral or even some candles. Again, this all depends on available space and the look you’re trying to achieve. If you have a stone or tile floor like most of us, add a few rugs to warm the space. With all the hard surfaces, bathrooms can become a little cold and sterile.

With the hectic pace today, it seems more than ever, we need a sanctuary or safe haven if you will. The master bathroom has become a place to relax and unwind after a stressful day of work. A long soak in the tub, candles and soft music can do wonders. So don’t be afraid to make it your own. Enjoy!!!

    Christopher is a top designer. I had the pleasure of his company at the Greystone Mansion where we both designed rooms. Chris' sense of color is outstanding along with his knowledge of proportions and furnishings.

    Truly I would not hesitate to call him for any design needs you may have.

    Bravo Chris!!!
