Are you looking for a modern and edgy bathroom remodeling design, but not sure where to start? If you want something loud and vibrant that is sure to wake you up in the morning, consider a Art Deco bathroom remodel.
Art Deco is a style that first became popular during the Roaring 20s. World War I had ended and a feeling of prosperity and frivolity reigned. Women had the right to vote, jazz music was all the rage, transportation was modernized, and skyscrapers were becoming a soaring fixture in big cities.
Because of all the excitement that was happening outside, people started using it as inspiration for their homes. Art Deco is an eclectic mix of styles, yet a few things definitely stand out: sleek aesthetic, symmetrical geometric shapes and bold bright colors like yellow, green, blue, purple, ruby and turquoise. Patterns such as zigzags, sunbursts, chevrons, and Moorish arches were popular architectural elements added to homes and buildings. Building materials become more opulent with the introduction of tiles, steel and glass, which added glitz to the homes of the rich and famous.
Today Art Deco bathroom remodeling is becoming increasingly popular. When designing an Art Deco bathroom don’t forget these tips to ensure it turns our exactly like you planned.
Art Deco Bathroom Remodeling Tips
- Pedestal sinks: If you’re fortunate enough to live in a historical home and have an original pedestal sink, hire a professional for a sink refinish. It will restore your sink to its original beauty, and the cost is cheaper than that of buying a new one. If you do purchase one be sure to have it installed by a plumber, because your current plumbing may not be equipped for this style.
- Bathing niches: Stand-up shower stalls and semi-enclosed bathtubs were often recessed into the wall and set off with arched openings (Moorish arches). This gave a modern look and concealed the plumbing behind the wall. If you are looking for custom showers designs contact Indy Renovation and have their professional designers create one for you.
- Tile: Tile was extremely popular, used on the walls and floors in both square and octagonal shapes and in bright colors. The colored tiles were often outlined with black tiles and elaborate patterns of black tile as a border, often taking the place of baseboards at the floor. The pattern was repeated about halfway up the wall where the tile ended.
