Creating a Beautiful, Functional Bamboo Bathroom
When it comes to bathroom remodeling, there are a lot of choices available for cabinets, flooring and accessories. Not every type of material is appropriate for bathroom surfaces, so finding one that works well for your bathroom can be challenging. Thankfully, one material that is perfect for flooring and cabinets is bamboo. This eco-friendly material is versatile enough to fit into any modern bathroom decor while still retaining its superior properties. Use the tips below to create a bathroom that is not only inspired by bamboo, but that is also designed with it.
If you have never seen or felt a bamboo floor it can be difficult to imagine how durable and beautiful they are. Although bamboo is technically classified as a grass, it is strong enough to be comparable to woods and laminates. The natural grains in the bamboo’s design make it ideal for a decorative look, as well as a durable design. Bamboo has natural anti-microbial properties which is especially helpful in the bathroom environment. Coupled with its water resistant nature, bamboo is truly a durable, attractive flooring alternative for any bathroom.
Cool CabinetsRedesigning a bathroom is always hard work, especially for the do-it-yourself homeowner. One trick of the trade for doing a bathroom remodel yourself is to use a ready-to-assemble cabinet. These cabinets are easy to put together with just a few simple screws and can be ordered in a variety of different woods and styles. One choice that cannot be overlooked for the bathroom is bamboo. Ready-to-assemble bamboo cabinets offer homeowners a sleek, conservative design while bringing together the best of the material’s durability and design. The cabinets are not only strong in their construction, but the bamboo offers added strength and visual appeal. They are a perfect alternative to a traditional cabinet or sink base for both a unique look and a long lasting product.
While bathrooms should be relatively free of extraneous decor, it is a nice idea to add some decorative pieces in for visual interest and personality. In a bamboo inspired bathroom, stalks of bamboo are the perfect choice for a countertop or wall shelf. Planted in a small, decorative pot, the bamboo adds a burst of green to the warm, rich color of the bamboo cabinets and flooring. That same green color can then be captured in the bathroom towels and other accessories. Instead of using a soap dispenser with bamboo and a koala on it to tie the theme together, use a plain light green dispenser that coordinates with the bamboo plant. This is a much less obtrusive way to coordinate your bathroom accessories.
Designing a bathroom for a remodel can be challenging, but when you have a well-thought out basis for your design, it can be easier. Take the time to select the right bamboo flooring, cabinets and decor for your new bathroom. Once they are installed, you will have a relaxing space that looks modern and sleek while being environmentally friendly and beautiful.
