An excellent idea of decor will be the use of tiles of different shades, performing strips, ornaments or curbs. Also in demand is a tile with a pattern, either coinciding with it in color, or a contrasting shade (yellow, white or black). An effective combination is a matte red background and an intricate red glossy pattern.
Modern trends in the imitation of ceramics by a variety of natural textures make it possible to trim the bathroom with red tiles similar to fabric, leather, or other textured surface. To a bright, monochrome tile, a red trowelling mix is often added.

Tips from designers
To get a functional and stylish bathroom at the same time, you first need to create a room conversion project. In the creation of such a project, it is important to carefully perform the measurements and transfer them to the plan.
When all the bathroom space is measured, you can choose a stylistic solution and write down the list of materials that you will need (at the same time calculate the right amount). At the same time, a repair plan should be drawn up, if they are carried out in-house. When calculating the repair plan, calculate all the upcoming expenses.
If the leading color is red, the other shades that will complement it are not chosen too flashy to not create a strong contrast. Recall that designers recommend red finish for large bathrooms. In a small room, it is preferable only to add red accents, so that the design does not "crush", but adds to the atmosphere of vivacity. An example of such an accent may be a red border around the mirror with a general light decoration of the room.
