I’m finding colour selections quite overwhelming, so for the house interior, I thought I’d start with an easy room – the children’s bathroom. The room will be used by 3 children for baths and showers. There is a separate toilet beside this bathroom so these two rooms should match. The rooms are quite small and I have no grand plans to make a statement with the colours. Function and light is the priority. This is roughly the bathroom layout:
The top level bench surrounding the sink is to be Caesarstone, while the trim and cabinets are laminate. My main colour dilemma is how to make the most of the cabinet detail that is shown in brown in the above picture. I don’t like brown and the bold contrast looks a little masculine for my preference.
Here is a little inspiration for colours:
The touch of wood makes it feel homely and would tie in the wooden floors in the rest of the house.
Here is what I came up with:
It all looked terribly drab until I added the flowers and towels. Of course the bath and frameless mirror are missing, also the plain white tiles for the bath hob, but you get the gist.
I have two worries. One is that the beech Laminex will look awfully fake. Has anyone used this laminex and can share pics? My second concern is that my choice of Caesarstone colours from “the builder’s standard range” may not include a pure white bench top. I will have to check on that one.
As always, give me your critique. I can handle it.
