Neutral Color Bathroom Ideas For Your New Home In Austin

March 14, 2016

Looking to reinvent your bathroom? Neutral colors are ideal for creating a bathroom that exudes a calm, clean vibe. While bright, energetic colors may be wonderful in your kitchen or office, it can be a nice change of pace to have a bathroom that is quiet in color and décor. If you want a relaxing atmosphere for your master bath or just want to revamp your guest bathroom, consider using these neutral color techniques and fresh ideas for your home in Austin.

Romantic Retreat

If you want a soft, romantic retreat for your master bathroom, consider using cream to color your room. From the crown molding to the swooping drapes, use shades of cream to create a feminine room that will beckon you to take a soak in the tub. Use soft lighting to complete the atmosphere; it will be a wonderful place for you and your partner to enjoy together or on your own. 

Serene Sanctuary

The soft, serene combination of beige and off-white can be a perfect color scheme for your sanctuary. Use pine or oak along with beige accents with off-white walls and fixtures to create a quiet place to get away from the bustle of the day. 

Sumptuous Spa

Create a bathroom that looks more like a private room at the spa than a home bathroom using a neutral palette. Start with travertine or marble for the floor, tiles and tub with soft tans and browns. Add an antique-style dresser in a darker brown as your vanity with a stylish vessel sink.

Glamorous Gray

Gray can be glamourous, especially when used to style your bathroom. Choose a lovely Equator Marmara marble for a stylish and glamorous backdrop for your shower walls, floors and tub, complete with a shimmery gray wallpaper for a celebrity-worthy bath. 

White with Wood

Nothing offsets the beauty of natural wood like a crisp, white background. Whether you love soft, sleek oak or the dark chocolate of walnut or mahogany, these neutral colors can be a stunning ensemble when paired together in your Austin home’s bathroom. White walls and a porcelain claw foot tub will look clean and crisp next to a dark wood vanity.

Stark and Stunning

White-on-white is an ambitious undertaking but can be quite stunning in the right home. From the porcelain fixtures to the stark white vanity, cabinets and window dressings, white can be elegant and enticing for your Austin home’s bathroom. 

Antique Accents

Add the old-world charm of antique furnishings to your bathroom with neutral undertones. A mirror with an antique gold frame paired with a soft gold marble top for your vanity is just the start to a bathroom that is calm and quaint.

We lost our house in a fire just over a year ago. We are on an excellent 1 acre lot in Shady Hollow and really wanted to stay on the property in a nice home. We talked to several contractors, and nobody who was in our price range (insurance $) really inspired a ton of confidence, though there were one or two who we felt we could go with if SF Homes wasn't able to build a house for us on our lot. Turns out they did, and they did a spectacular job. We ended up with the Mendocino II plan and their builder did a meticulous, thorough, quality job throughout. From the first rate materials to the first rate subcontractors and the thoughtful planning by everyone involved, we ended up with a house which exceeded the quality and beauty of the house we lost to the fire.
