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.
Use Budget to Eliminate Choices. When you make choices, you need to consider how the entire bathroom will look with these fixtures in place. For most homeowners, these choices ultimately are dictated by budget. In most cases, the budget serves as a tool for eliminating designs that are out of the price range. Bathroom Faucet Styles. The style of your bathroom sink will help you to eliminate specific faucets that are simply too high or the wrong style. For example, there are different faucet design considerations for a vessel style sink than those for an under the counter mounted sink that has a traditional faucet and two levers or knobs. Sink Faucet Categories. You can use the faucet style categories to help you in deciding if you want contemporary, traditional or transitional.
Fixture Metals and Finishes. It's best to stick with the same type of finish for all the bathroom hardware. Most people also choose to go with the same style. These two factors ensure your bathroom has a designer look and a cohesive design. However, some people prefer a more eclectic look and often go with a mix of styles in the same finish. This is a purely personal choice. If you decide this is your personal style, be sure to keep the style mix balanced. Otherwise, the eclectic look will elude your design leaving only a hodgepodge look that doesn't work. Popular Fixture/Hardware Metal and Finishes. Most metal finishes used in bathroom fixtures are available in brushed, satin, polished, antiqued and satin. The metal finishes can be high-end expensive solid metals or plated metals known as PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating of thin layers of metals, such as aluminum, chromium, titanium, and other metals. Copper: Copper is used in many hand-crafted sinks and tubs. The hammered finish is a popular style for this metal. If you want a unique metal that's also antimicrobial and resists mildew and mold, common problems with bathroom, this is it.
