The Pantone "color palettes" that are released each year can give you good ideas for bathroom color, "and I love them," says Cy. "Next year they'll come out with a whole new set and those will be out." Instead, says Cy, "choose what you like." But he's got a few caveats. "Peach looks like a bad '80s hotel room," he says. "We're not over it enough to laugh at it yet." The light in the bathroom should also influence your decision. "Really dark colors can be fabulous, but you have to make sure the bathroom gets enough natural light, or put in some other lighting, if you want to use them. Otherwise, the effect is just dark, and you need to be able to see to shave and put on makeup." The idea of looking at yourself in the mirror with these colors framing you brings up another issue. "Even when it's just extra color, you shouldn't put anything in your bathroom that will make you look ghastly in the morning, like lime green — a mistake I've made before — and yellow, unless it's a real warm shade." "More than anything," says Cy, "remember that it's your house. The color you choose should express who you are -- unless it's peach.
Planning your bathroom's layout Your bathroom's layout will in part be determined by what storage and bathroom furniture you need. Start by thinking about how you use your bathroom. What do you need space for and how much will you require? How regularly will you use different things and how easily will you need to access them? How much do you want to hide away or have out on display? Answering these questions will give you a good idea of how much storage you'll need so you can better plan what bathroom furniture you should get. Now you can think about the different types of furniture and storage options available to you. You can get built-in cabinets – for example, bathroom vanities that sit around the basin, which will make use of wasted space – or freestanding ones that give you flexibility to move it around.
Towel Racks, Rings, or Bars. The number one rule for placing towel racks, rings, or bars is that they should be near the bathroom fixtures, such as sink and tub/shower. This ensures the towels are conveniently accessible whenever these two areas area used. If you have more than one sink or one vanity area, be sure to install a towel bar or ring for each sink area. This way you'll have easy access to a towel when you need it. Measure the space before you buy so you can choose the right size before you attempt to install it. Toilet Paper Holders. The toliet paper holder is usually a necessity that isn't given much thought other than the finish. Styles, go with the simple traditional style for a freestanding toilet holder. For smaller bathrooms, you might prefer an over the toilet tank holder that also has room for a second roll in reserve.
