Bathrooms are often an opportunity to let your wildest design dreams come true. If you're considering installing a new bathroom or updating an existing one, you'll want to peruse these ideas for eclectic bathrooms.
Eclectic style is defined by drawing inspiration from a range of sources—and an eclectic design approach will often mix and match elements from several contrasting or complementary styles. This design style can be particularly effective in bathrooms, especially guest, half or three-quarter baths that stand alone, somewhat disconnected from the overall design aesthetic of the rest of the home. These types of bathrooms are often located in hallways or adjacent to guest rooms, which, incidentally, are also good places to experiment with eclectic design.
One of the best ways to achieve an eclectic style is the match the old and the new. If your prevailing bathroom design is modern or contemporary—featuring clean lines, smooth tile and updated fixtures—consider adding a bit of contrast with a classic, claw-footed tub, complete with traditional hardware, or even an archaic tub-filler mechanism. Similarly, placing a classic tub design on a modern stand, or enclosing a pedestal sink basin in a modern cabinet scheme, can have the same contrasting but complementary effect.
Another simple touch that can create an eclectic feel is to add rustic or natural elements to your bathroom design. Driftwood or unfinished natural wood for mirror frames, benches or storage cabinets can create an eclectic contrast with bright, light tile or countertops.
