After finalizing the flooring and faucets for your bathroom, you may be tempted to give the window treatment short shrift. But a thoughtful choice can really enhance the room’s overall look — as these beautiful bathing spaces prove.
Add a pretty pattern. We’re getting braver when it comes to pattern on our floors. A vintage- or Moroccan-style tile can look fantastic in a bathroom. It adds welcome contrast to an all-white room, and it means that the rest of a room doesn’t have to work so hard to look stylish. Here, a pretty vintage-look pattern pairs with a black border, which grounds the design and adds a traditional touch.
Look to the past. This dramatic bathroom window has custom shutters influenced by the Tudor period. Back then, it was difficult to make big pieces of glass, so the panes were tiny and held together with lead in a crisscross or other pattern. The panes on these shutters are frosted for privacy but still maintain their period feel.
This modern farmhouse bathroom — like the other bathrooms in this story — interprets farmhouse style for the way people like to live in their homes today. It includes a key element of farmhouse style: a stand-alone tub, which has old-style valves and faucet handles that evoke an older farmhouse. But the homeowners still get a luxurious, separate walk-in shower.
