How to Find Your Bathroom Style

Your bathroom should reflect your personal style — but what does that really mean?

If you’re a new homeowner or living on your own for the first time, developing your own personal style can often be overwhelming. Where do you start? What if you like lots of different styles?

Luckily, bathrooms are the perfect sized room to dip your toes into the home decorating waters. With a smaller space, you can more easily experiment to find what best reflects your likes and dislikes.

As you begin looking at new shower curtains, toothpaste holders and mirrors, here are some decorating styles to consider:

Modern

With simple touches and geometric shapes, a modern-style bathroom is likely to rely on neutral colors, natural materials and clean lines. To achieve this look, think of less as more. You won’t want your vanity cluttered with toiletries and anything overly ornate or colorful would feel out of place.

Playful

On the opposite end of the decorating spectrum, creating a playful style bathroom would allow you the freedom to be as quirky and colorful as you want. While you’ll still want to choose items and finishes that complement each other, this style is ideal for decorators who are drawn to bright floral shower curtains and unique tile choices.

Bohemian

Do you love vintage textiles, greenery and well-integrated pops of color? Are you a fan of eye-catching patterns and unique tiling? Well, then a bohemian style bathroom might be just your speed. Start by pairing an ornately framed mirror with a colorful patterned rug and see how your style emerges.

Classic

The best thing about classic décor is it never goes out of style. Cool-toned colors, clean lines and elegant touches combine to create a timeless, luxurious space. And don’t worry — classic doesn’t mean out-of-date. Traditional touches like marble vanities and subtle patterns will maintain their appeal for years to come.

How to Choose the Right Frame for Your Bathroom Mirror

It’s time: you’re finally going to upgrade your bathroom look by framing the mirror. Yet, just as you’re excited to get started on this easy and affordable mini-makeover, you’re struck with indecision. With so many different frames to choose from, how do you know what will look best in your bathroom?

We know choosing the right frame can be intimidating. That’s why we’re here to help walk you through the steps to making your decision. And trust us: before you know it, you’ll be stepping back to confidently admire your perfectly framed mirror.

Here are our best tips for selecting the frame style that’s right for you:

Consider your bathroom style

From easily changeable décor items like shower curtains and bath mats, to less flexible design touches, like your faucet finish and vanity surface, you want your new mirror frame to integrate seamlessly with your current bathroom style. Think carefully about how certain colors and materials will look together to ensure you’re creating a look that is natural and coordinated.

Consider the feel you want

Different frames will create different ambiance in your bathroom, so take the time to determine the feel you want to establish. The color, material and finish of your chosen frame can all impact your bathroom style in subtle, but effective ways. For instance, if you want a bathroom that feels fresh and modern, a contemporary frame might be more your style. Or, if you really want to make your mirror a statement piece in your bathroom, you might be interested in a more ornate frame.

Order sample frames

If you’re on the fence between a few different frame types, don’t leave your decision up to chance. Instead, order a few sample sizes so you can see first hand how your new frame will work in your bathroom. This can be especially helpful in bathrooms with tricky lighting or mixed finishes — and the peace of mind that comes with seeing your frame options in person will be well worth it.

With all that said, here’s one thing we know for sure: framing your bathroom mirror will be worth it, even if choosing a frame seems tough.
