If you're looking to create an elegant and intimate bathing space in your home, you should consider incorporating some romantic bathroom ideas.
Start with color when envisioning a romantic bathroom design scheme. In general, romantic bathroom designs feature softer, lighter colors. Pale blues, light shades of red or pink, or even soft yellows can create a relaxing, romantic atmosphere.
Victorian-style bathrooms are well known for their romantic appeal. Common elements of their design are porcelain claw-foot tubs used as a bold and inviting centerpiece, or pedestal sinks in porcelain or metal for a space-saving and elegant touch.
Gilded metal hardware such as faucets, door handles and mirror frames—or even lighting fixtures like wall sconces—can add a romantic touch as well. And when you're thinking about lighting, consider a dimmer switch that can be employed when you want to use candles or simply lower the brightness for a more romantic feel.
