The Art Deco movement began after World War I and was an extravagant response to the hardships and suffering experienced by many during the war years. It owes its name to the 1925 Paris World’s Fair, which was fashionable until the late 1930s.
Art Deco design was the epitome of luxury and elegance. With geometric shapes and zigzag patterns on the walls and floors, these were complemented by smooth, curved walls and polished glass fixtures. Monochrome colors, accented with metallic tones such as bronze and steel, were extremely popular and made for a crisp, crisp and opulent overall picture.
If designing an Art Deco bathroom is your next home improvement project, the good news is that it’s easier than you might think. While you probably don’t want to invest in a marble sink or start rebuilding new curved interior walls, there are plenty of other ways to create an authentic look, including choosing the right bathroom ensemble and contrasting it.
Choose a vintage suite
Start by choosing the right bathroom set to go straight to your new Art Deco bathroom. Look for black freestanding tubs with soft curves and choose large sinks with rounded edges. You can outfit them with vintage faucets and square mirrors to complete the look.
Black and white
If you are into super bright color combinations in all colors of the spectrum, an art deco bathroom is not for you. What it will be, however, is an elegant nod to an elegant bygone era that marks a significant moment in our history. Black and white come to the fore with shiny metallic colors that add texture and depth. For added opulence, the monochrome color palette can be complemented with glass lamps and chandeliers, and don’t forget to add rich green indoor plants in the corners – the bigger the better.
Art Deco Co style bathroom tiles
You can add the perfect finishing touch to your art deco bathroom by creating stunning designs with smart tiles. When you go for versatile bathroom tile like the Metro Black Gloss ceramic tile and its sister in white, you can create zigzag floors that any true Art Deco fan would be proud of. Or maybe you prefer an authentic checkerboard floor that you can achieve with smaller square tiles. For an easy path to a real finish, Dieby and Durham tiles have it all – a vintage look with a pre-made black and white pattern. Complement them with white tiled walls with black borders or vice versa if you dare. And for the ultimate luxurious look, you can try a marble tile with the Neptune Marble Gloss Ceramic Tile, which is sure to give your bathroom the sophisticated look of Art Deco.
