While the bathroom may be the most functional room in your home, it doesn't have to be utilitarian in appearance. Instead, by combining colors and patterns in the form of bath mats, shower curtains and linens you can create a space that is beautiful while still providing the functionality you need. From washed out colors and a beachy theme to modern black and red, creating the perfect bathroom space is as easy as defining personal style and adding in a few choice accessories by Charter Club, Avanti, or Lauren by Ralph Lauren.
For a beachy look, stick to soft colors. Remember, the beach style is premised on the blues and greens of the ocean. Choose bath mats in soft washed out colors and linens in white or cream. Add in a sea themed shower curtain and accessories and light wood frame pictures featuring beach scenes for a complete look.
For those seeking a more modern style, sticking to black, red and white with chrome accents is ideal. Bath mats with geometric patterns and a black and red color scheme are perfect for this modern take on a functional room. Choose towel holders and other accessories in simple chrome to help create a look that is anything but traditional.
For a bit of country kitch, consider using soft patterns as the basis of the decor. Plaids and floral motifs works very well for this style of bathroom. Choose artwork with country themes and Amish inspired accessories to create a complete bathroom look or keep it simple by choosing only a few accessories.
Bath mats can also be used as the inspiration for an overall bathroom decor. From simple monochromatic mats to bright and bold examples, use the mat as a basis on which to pick paint, linens and bath accessories. Take your bathroom from utilitarian to beautiful with bath mats available at Macy's.
