All about bathroom decoration and some interesting bathroom design and decor all over the world.
An elegant wash basin
Wash basin is a good place to start when you’re trying to turn your bathroom into something elegant. Most bathrooms come with a sink/cabinet unit in which the sink and countertop are on a lower cabinet. For added elegance, however, you need to do away with this design. Instead, replace with either a double sink system with a long countertop and quality wooden cabinets, or alternatively, you can opt to forget the sink/cabinet combo system and opt for a free standing sink which simply has the basin on a stand. This look can run the gamut from ultra modern to French country, depending on design of the sink and the stand.
Tips for bathroom storage
First, you can try to fix a closet organizers.This is the common and effective way.Most bathrooms, regardless of their overall size, usually have a small closet for towels and others items built into them. Unfortunately, many of these closets are not designed in a manner in which there is a lot of organizational space.However, now, there are many different bathroom storage options available in the way of closet organizers.
Second,toilet shelving is a relatively popular method of creating space in small bathrooms. Just stand back and take a look at all that space that resides behind your toilet.
Third,you can purchase units that hang from the actual shower head, those that sit conveniently in the corner of the shower, or even hang them on the inner wall of the shower!
Unique bathroom sink design
Is a glass sink suitable for you?
Glass sink looks more beautiful than porcelain maded.It is morden and with various of pattern and style that make your bathroom distinctive.Glass sinks are made of tempered glass. This is glass that has been heated to just below the melting point and then cooled at a very rapid pace to make it much stronger and more durable than regular glass. The small pebble size pieces are not sharp so there is no danger that you or a child will suffer a deep wound if the sink shatters, which highly unlikely anyway.
Glass sinks are most popular for bathroom sinks, but they can not be used for any sink in the house, including the kitchen and wet bar.Wet bar glass sinks are a particularly good option for homeowners who may be nervous about putting a trendy item in a traditional kitchen or bathroom. glass vessel sinks are continuing to rise in popularity and probably aren't going out of fashion any time soon. Interestingly, most sink trends start in upscale restaurants.
Though glass sink looks beautiful, you have to treat a glass sink with care.Quite often the reason that homeowners have had broken sinks or shower doors that were made of glass is that they were not installed properly.
You need to be careful when filling the sink with water, however. If the glass is really cold, then you should not run hot water into it until the glass has warmed up a bit. You can easily do this by gradually increasing the temperature of the water.
Cleaning a glass sink is actually a lot easier than cleaning one made of acrylic or stainless steel. You can use glass cleaner for cleaning the sink, just as you do for cleaning your windows. If you do have stubborn stains that will not come off easily, vinegar works well in taking these off.
Think about all above, you can make a decision whether to choose a glss sink for your bathroom.

Smart design for small bathroom
One of the best solutions to make small bathrooms seem larger and brighter is with the clever use of mirrors to reflect light around the room and give the impression of more space - this could be with the use of mirrors or mirrored tiles.
Soft Color for
WallsOne of the easiest ways that a person can alter their small bathroom design to make it appear larger is to choose light soft colors for the decor of the bathroom.
Larger tiles create a sense of space, as do rectified porcelain tiles. Because of the way they are made, rectified porcelain tiles are identically-shaped, meaning narrower grout lines and less visual fuss.
The feeling of space can be generated by more visible tiled floor. This can be produced with floating cabinets and a pedestal or wall mounted sink. The vanity unit on the other hand, takes up a lot of floor space and is best avoided.
A sliding door gives more room than a normal hinged door, and can be hidden in an in-wall cavity for a clean look.If you are using a hinged door, don't clutter your walls with towel racks. Hang them on the back of the door instead.
The latest trends in bathroom
Size:The best way to maximize is sometimes simply to de-clutter. Today's bathrooms are equipped with more than just the traditional bath and sink. As homeowners increase the size of their bathrooms, they are experimenting with armoires for storage, music or television and chaise lounges for reading and relaxing. Vintage furniture is also making a splash in the bathroom. Homeowners are using vintage pieces as vanities or for more decorative purposes such as a towel rack or sitting chairs. Many manufacturers are creating fixtures that look and feel like furniture. For example, the American Standard Enfield Suite showcases a freestanding tub large enough for two encased in a wood frame.

Make your bathroom personalizing
If you're building a new home, you may want to consider designing a bathroom differently than you would if you're remodeling an existing bathroom.
Bath decor - nothing is more beautiful (to me at least) than a room that is 'perfect'. The correct room design, the correct furnishings and let us not omit its decor.A room that is pleasing to the senses - beautiful, luxurious, a pleasure to be in. A room designed to be lived in. Those are beautiful rooms to me and one than can stand out through its bath décor is obviously the remodelled bathroom.A bathroom has such potential for dramatic bath décor and this is something that can be utilized to increase a homes selling price or increase the joy experienced in living in it.
Some useful tips for personalizing your bathroom:
1.Add a light fitting that you like and that is modern, reflecting now. Many bathrooms suffer from very old light fittings that are gaudy colors and dusty to boot!
2.Add matching towel sets.
3.Mirrors can make a bathroom look larger, add light and provide a feature element. Do not skimp on the mirror and it might even be a good idea to use more than one.
4.Add jars, bottles, seashells, rubber duck toys, novelty plugs, novelty shower curtain rings etc.
5.Display loofahs, sponges and other spa items around the bath or hanging in the shower. They look great and they encourage use to keep you sparkling clean!

Which bathroom style do you like?
Amusing Japanese Bathroom
The typical Japanese bathroom consists of two rooms, an entrance room where you undress and which is equipped with a sink, and the actual bathroom which is equipped with a shower and a deep bath tub. The toilet is almost always located in an entirely separate room.
One of the primary installations in a Japanese bathroom comprises of a deep tub, which is used solely for soaking purposes, not washing. Without this, a bathroom is considered to be useless. The tub in a Japanese bathroom is, more often than not, made of seasoned wood. These days, you will find on-demand water heaters in most of the Japanese bathroom, which heat water only when required. So, this will be another major installation that you need to pay attention to, while creating a Japanese-style bathroom in your home.
If you want to create a traditional Japanese bathroom, forget about shower and showerheads. They make use of pails to wash themselves and enter the tub only after cleaning themselves thoroughly. However, you might use showers if you want a contemporary Japanese bath.
A lack of ambient design is very common with most Japanese bathroom design, as they prefer to have a sense of harmony, the way they need to relax without reminding them of their jobs. Although most designers also introduced some modern hardware like an LCD screen to watch while dipping in hot water or simple pictures, they would use any space to their advantage without being too overbearing.
