Wood and White Bathrooms for a Trendy, Relaxing ShowerCapitol Design Build
Even with virtually endless color palettes and design styles to choose from, the combination of wood and white continues to be trendier than ever. What makes this such a desirable way to modernize the bathroom? Let’s take a look.
White: Clean and Minimalistic
Bathrooms tend to be the smallest rooms in the house, and white is great at making them feel larger. This color reflects light better than any other, increasing the brightness in the room as a result. In this way, a bathroom can feel airy and spacious, even if it doesn’t have a window or much square footage.
Plus, nothing looks cleaner than pure white walls, countertops, and sinks. That’s why white is the go-to color for minimalist designs. If you want a no-fuss appearance that exhibits unquestionable cleanliness, a white bathroom could be the best option for you.
Wood: Bringing the Outside In
Even if white is the main color in your bathroom, it shouldn’t be the only one, or it can end up feeling sterile. Wood is the perfect remedy. This material is warm and inviting, ideal for satisfying the craving people have for more nature in an increasingly high-tech world.
No matter your style preferences, chances are wood can fit into the design. It’s easy to create just the right look with numerous species and stains to choose from. Want a small bathroom to feel larger? Opt for light-colored wood such as oak, pine, or spruce. For a more dramatic flair, try a dark or exotic wood like cherry, walnut, or mahogany.
Ways to Use Wood in a Bathroom
A wood vanity may come to mind first, but this is just the beginning. Here are some other creative uses for wood in the bathroom:
- Wood bathroom floors: Hardwood flooring may be on your wish list—but in the bathroom? Yes! Provided that you waterproof and maintain it properly, wood can make a stunning bathroom floor.
- Wood bathroom countertops: The contrast of a reclaimed wood countertop against a white ceramic sink and shiny metal fixtures makes this a stunning centerpiece in any bathroom.
- Wood bathtub surrounds: While you may want to avoid wooden sinks and tubs for longevity purposes, installing a wood tub skirt and surround could be the elegant addition you’ve been longing for.
- Wood accent walls: When you’re surrounded by wood, you feel closer to nature. That’s why spas and resorts incorporate wood accent walls. You can do the same at home to create a restorative, peaceful feeling in your bathroom.
