3 Steps To Find Your Bathroom Style


The first step to choosing the perfect bathroom style is finding an object or place to serve as inspiration. Your design can be inspired by almost anything that is meaningful to you! 

Where do you love to travel? You could channel the look and feel of an Italian villa or the coast of Greece. Even if your dream vacation is a place you’ve never visited, you can bring the look home to your bathroom with key style choices.

Another starting place could be a sentimental item like a piece of art, a special photo, or a collection of perfumes. These accessories can help direct you toward a more traditional or more modern look.


You should also explore the latest design trends and note what speaks to you. Do bright colors make you feel energized or overwhelmed? Are you soothed by neutral spaces or bored?
