European-style bathrooms are known for their elegance, sophistication, and unique blend of functionality with aesthetics. When you give a European touch to your bath space, you create an ideal fusion of form and function, where every element has been thoughtfully designed to create a sense of harmony and balance. Sounds exciting? We are here to translate this vision into reality.
Recreating your bathrooms into a space that embraces the beauty of European art and culture requires modifying the functional and visual aspects. From integrating appealing bathroom accessories to experimenting with the theme and color of the walls, simple yet effective upgrades can help you achieve the dream look.
Here are a few ideas to help you create a vintage and charming space to transform your comfort station into an aesthetically pleasing space.
Use Marble or Tiles
The use of marble or stone tiles is a common feature in European-style bathrooms. These tiles provide a luxurious and elegant look to the space, and their durability makes them a practical choice too. You can choose from a variety of natural stone tiles like granite, limestone, or travertine to suit your style and preferences. Apart from stone tiles, choosing accent tiles can add a pop of colour or pattern to your bathroom. You can select tiles with unique designs like intricate mosaics, geometric patterns, or floral motifs. Use accent tiles on the floor, shower walls, or as a backsplash to create a focal point.
Install Vintage Fixtures
Fixtures are functional elements that can enliven a visually appealing bath space. So, to create a style statement while cherishing the retro vibes, consider installing a vintage-style faucet, showerhead, or towel rack. Additionally, you can integrate pedestal sinks, and exposed plumbing which is a hallmark of classy bathrooms. These fixtures add character and charm to the space and can be complemented with modern touches to create a unique look.
Add a Chandelier
Does your bathroom lack that sense of grandeur despite artistic lighting? A chandelier is a much-needed addition to your comfort space. Choose a chandelier with a vintage or antique look to create an aesthetic ambiance. The chandelier can be the centerpiece or can complement other lighting fixtures. Moreover, depending on the size and space in your bathroom, you can choose between a mini or a splashy crystal design.
Incorporate Decorative Mirrors
Mirrors add character to a bathroom and can make a small space look larger. They add depth to your space and make it look welcoming. Decorative mirrors enhance the grandeur of your comfort space and introduce a European touch. They can be framed or unframed and come in various shapes and sizes. Choose the one that suits your bath space’s decor. You can also consider adding a mirror with a decorative border or a unique shape for a dramatic effect.
Install a Heated Towel Rack
Heated towel racks are a practical addition, helping you dry your used towels in a quick fashion. This is not a fixture you will commonly see in a bathroom and naturally adds a touch of uniqueness and luxury. A sleek and modern heated towel rack can also be used as a statement piece, making it a beautiful addition to the overall design.
Choose Elegant Accessories
Accessories like soap dispensers, toothbrush holders, and tissue boxes, made of high-quality materials like brass or glass can be used to add a touch of elegance to your bathroom. You can also add decorative vases, candles, or artwork to enhance the artistic appeal of your space.
