Find out all you'll need to know about Mediterranean bathrooms, and create an elegant and relaxing bath space in your home.
Mediterranean bathrooms can add great style to a home. They offer guests and family members alike a soothing, elegant bath space.
Mediterranean style can be found anywhere in the world, but it originated in the coastal countries of the Mediterranean, stretching from Spain all the way to Turkey. Italy gets a lot of credit for Mediterranean style, but its cultural and historical influences are extremely broad. Ultimately, this style focuses on simple, understated and elegant luxury, making it particularly well-suited for bathrooms.
Mediterranean-style bathrooms often have a heavy emphasis on tile. These can take the form of traditional, straightforward terracotta for floors, or truly unique, ornate backsplashes or wall tile in hand-crafted mosaics.
In terms of color schemes, Mediterranean bathrooms often feature bright and sunny colors, including oranges, yellows and reds, plus turquoise blues and bright whites.
One other feature that's often emphasized in Mediterranean bathrooms is curving or arched doorways for entrances, showers or toilet stalls. This flowing, curved style can also be reflected in the shape of elements like mirrors or furniture.
