Whether you’re planning to remodel your entire bathroom or simply change the key focus areas of your decor and colors, southwest Mexican rustic home decor will make an excellent choice. Mexican decor for bathrooms gives a soothing look and feel…great for relaxing hot baths!
First, take time to view photos online of bathrooms with southwestern decor. Notice how colors are used to emphasize certain items. The walls might be painted in bold, bright colors such as red or blue, or with subtle earth tones. It’s important to plan wall and floor colors based on the look you wish to achieve. That’s why looking at various photos can provide an excellent start. For flooring, consider Mexican glazed tile or saltillo tile. Or if you’re not changing your actual flooring, add a colorful Mexican rug to match.
*Note about Mexican Decor Colors: The lighting and colors you choose can affect how your skin appears in the mirror. This can make applying makeup difficult. So be aware of how the colors will affect your morning routine before making a selection.
The sink(s), tub, shower, toilet, towel racks, etc. can be chosen to match your bath colors. Mexican style sinks are often colorful in the bowl section of the sink. There are unusual patterns and colors for Mexican sinks, but they are beautiful when matched to other colors in the room. Choose lighting fixtures that give a Mexican decor flare as well. Use a rustic chandelier or wrought iron fixture for above lighting, and add rustic sconce light covers alongside a Mexican tin mirror.
Talavera pottery in a corner of the bath floor or on a shelf can also add to your southwest decor. This is lovely pottery made Mexican style with vibrant colors and amazing designs from “South of the Border.” And don’t forget to choose southwestern colors and patterns when buying a shower curtain, hand towels, and window coverings. These can all blend with other colors and patterns to create the mood you desire.
If you’re ready to create a southwest Mexican rustic home decor for your bathroom, check out online offerings first for great savings. You can find many accessories for bath decor and other rooms in your home, including equipal furniture, Mexican glassware (margarita blue rim drinking glasses and other colors), rustic decor items, southwest home decor rugs and wall paintings, and more. When shopping online, be sure the site offers authentic southwest decor products. There are many cheap imitations, so you might expect to pay a little more for quality furniture and accessories. But the great thing about buying online is you can easily match designs and colors from your home computer instead of browsing multiple stores in your area. You’ll potentially save time and money by shopping at a specialty Mexican decor shop online.
