Decorate Your Bathroom Ceiling Painting in Highland Park
Your Mexican style bathroom ceiling painting in Highland Park is bold and colorful. It is inviting and makes you feel happy. You can have your Mexican style bathroom with just a few decorator items and bright bathroom towels all the way to a whole new vanity and new saltillo tile floors. Lets start with the whole bathroom remodel and work our way up to bathroom accessories Mexican style.
The Mexican bathroom floor. Never carpet. Mexican saltillo tile or a glazed Mexican tile will give you the most authentic Mexican bathroom floor. Saltillo tile in a range of terracotta colors to manganese, a rich brown color. Saltillo tiles are made in a variety of shapes. What you see most are squares, six, twelve and sixteen inch. Then there are rounded patterned ones. You can do your bathroom floor overall with one tile or you can create a tile rug using several shapes or sizes of tile.
A great way to get that Mexican style is to paint a bold stripe in a chili pepper red or Tucson teal at chair rail height all the way around the room. Paint a lighter color on top and another bold color on the bottom part of the wall. You can also use bright colored Mexican tiles for your stripe or paint or stencil Mexican style designs in your stripe.
Your Mexican style bathroom mirror can be framed in iron, shinny shaped tin or copper. A heavily carved frame can work and can be painted. There are also the shinny tin framed mirrors with the Mexican tiles inset.
Replace shinny brass or silver faucets with dark rustic fixtures. Look at styles in antique bronze. If you change your sink fixtures don’t forget the bathtub and shower for your overall Mexican bathroom style.
Hang a wrought iron or rustic chandelier over each of your vanity sinks. Sconces on each side of the mirror work well too. If you use the chandelier, scrolly wrought iron sconces to hold pillar candles are totally Mexican style. Put a dimmer on the lights for those relaxing soaking baths.
Bright, bold colors, scrolly iron pieces, real Mexican serapes and Mexican pottery. Bright painted wood and Mexican woven or appliqué wall hangings will pull your Mexican style bathroom together.
Paint an old chair in a bright turquoise and place a stack of bold colored towels on the seat. Take a bright serape stripe fabric to make a valance over the shower curtain rod or hang a length of south of the border fabric from the ceiling to the floor to hide the open shower curtain. Use a solid or bright floral printed shower curtain that compliments.
