Modern bathrooms require radically new design solutions. And, therefore, down with the dull tile finish from floor to ceiling. The trend is to gracefully decorate “wet zones,” which come out several times cheaper.
Following is the selection of 10 ideas for decorating an apron in the bathroom.
1. Same as countertop
When the tabletop flows smoothly into the apron and frames the mirrors, it looks laconic and stylish. For such a finish, designers suggest giving preference to neutral beige or coffee shades. For lovers of brighter colors, a combination of gray furniture with a marble top and an apron in the same style against a background of pink wall decoration.
2. Mosaic decor
The decor of the apron in the form of mosaic masonry looks original and unusual. Of the popular options, a narrow rectangular mosaic is distinguished. The color scheme can be selected in any order. The main thing is that it blends harmoniously with other elements in the bathroom. For the bathroom, the option of a monochromatic mosaic in soothing shades is also well suited.
Now the trend is eco-direction and, to keep up with fashion trends, I propose to arrange an apron with ordinary pebbles. Plus, using natural materials will help create a peaceful atmosphere. There are a lot of decor options here. For example, you can lay out a small border between the countertop and the mirror. And, to further protect the wall, the pebbles can be varnished. If there is no desire to look for sea pebbles and spend time laying them out, you can use a tile with its imitation.
4. Bright accent
A bright apron consisting of several multi-colored tiles will effectively stand out against the background of white walls. Additionally, you can lay the same tile on the wall near the bath.
5. Honeycomb tile
This type of tile has been at the peak of popularity for several years in a row and does not plan to give up its positions yet. And therefore, this is a good option for finishing an apron in the bathroom.
The decoration with Russian painting looks very authentic, especially in combination with marble top and light wood cabinets. And in tandem with blue tiles, Gzhel creates a marine mood.
7. Contrast grout
If you’re not quite ready to paint with bright tiles, colored grout can be used as an exciting feature in creating an apron. In this case, even a simple white tile will sparkle with new colors.
Firstly, it is an age-old classic that serves as a neutral background for any design decisions. Secondly, there are no difficulties with its laying. It will be interesting to look at the option when the apron over the sink is made of small-sized tiles of different colors. But here, it is essential to correctly determine the color scheme so that it does not draw all the attention to itself but only skillfully emphasizes and maintains the mood of the interior as a whole.
9. Marble finish
Marble in “wet zones” performs two functions at once – aesthetic and protective. This season, designers offer options when the countertop “echoes” the backsplash and trim around the bathtub. White marble complements the bathroom, whose walls are painted in rich colors.
10. Up to the mirror
The apron in the bathroom does not need to be made prominent. A few rows of tiles to the mirror are pretty enough. This is enough to protect the wall from moisture.
An apron in the bathroom is a way to make a room practical, stylish and at the same time save a little on repairs. After all, using tiles only in “wet zones” will cost several times less than laying them everywhere.
