The style of your home design will determine how you intend to decorate your bathroom. This will in turn dictate the style of bathroom fixtures that will go best with your creation. The goal is to design a cohesive bathroom décor. When you select the appropriate hardware/fixtures that follow the style of your interior then you can be assured of a beautiful bathroom design that looks as though it belongs together.
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.

I painted over the Masonite with a really good primer and then I decoupaged tissue paper in vivid colors over it — indigo blue, sunny yellow, even some silver tissue paper. It looks luminous, freckled, almost like water. Above the shower stall, I did much brighter colors and I sealed it all with a water-based polyurethane." While Cy applied his decoupage directly to the wall, his "simple French" look would work just as well applied to foam core or poster board, framed or not, and then hung on a bathroom wall for a splash of color you could change out whenever you want. "Paint the walls, or if they're mostly tile, paint the ceiling!" says Cy. "If the color doesn't work, you can paint it something else." And should you need to sell the house later, and believe the accepted wisdom that only white walls are appropriate in "For Sale" bathrooms, you can spend an afternoon painting it back. Or for just a minimal change, paint a frame and hang it on the bathroom mirror with Velcro.
