Gothic Bathrooms...
Dark & Mysterious?

  • penned by AL

So you like the look of the Gothic bathrooms you've seen and would really like to change up?...Well, you've come to the right place.

With a little budget decorating on your side, you can have a great Gothic bathroom.

Using your favorite dark colors for your bathtub & sink designs as well as flooring, walls and tiles the Gothic design starts to develop.

Your bathroom is kind of a sanctuary, in a certain respect, where you find peace and quiet and alone time.

You do spend quite a bit of time in it and you want it to be welcoming and comfortable.

(Well...let's hope not too much time!)

From Powerhouse Museum Collection

Even though they tend to be on the dark side, try light and dark colors...what I mean is, maybe a black shower curtain with white tribal lines throughout.

Perhaps the same with some really cool tribal wall tile around the sink...or a black pedestal sink with silver fixtures.

What About Those Walls?

Ahhh!...the walls of the Gothic bathroom...well, that's open for discussion. First decide what you want...paint, paper, faux, paneling...etc.etc.

There are so many courses to take you must make a plan...by far painting your walls is the cheapest way to go...if you need help in choosing the right color combinations click here.

You can do the walls black if you want but a small bathroom will look smaller with darker colors...and in your small cottage it will most likely be small...what to do?

Break it up...maybe do black on the top part of the wall and perhaps a tribal design or even paper on the lower half of the wall...you can break the wall with a chair rail or a painted design of your choosing...

Go Tribal!

Here's where you can get creative...Check out some tribal tattoo designs...

You can find wall stickers that fit the bill and are very Tribal & Gothic looking...and easy to apply. Here are just a few well distributed examples...

dragon wall small
skull wall small
flame wall small

Tattoo designs, particularly tribal for that gothic look, will also work well all around the cottage.

So don't be afraid to check out the multitude of tattoo designs available...and use them as accents on the wall or on furniture you're refinishing.

Shop Cheap & Find Bargins!

There's nothing better than a great find at a yard/garage sale...to say, "Hey, I got that for a buck at a yard sale!" feels sooo good!...and I bet it will be one of a kind!

Even if you have to clean something up to make it presentable you are adding a little of yourself to it.

Go out into the world and search for those bargains...believe me there is much to acquire for very little.

There are So Many Simple Decorating Ideas &

So many Possiblilities...
