Create Relaxing Rooms in Your New Home

Your new home should always accommodate everything that is important to you. While your living room can be a lively place for hanging with the family, the bathroom can be a relaxing environment for a long soak in the tub.

If you are building a new custom home, there are several design tips you can follow to make sure you build the perfect relaxing setting. Choosing a neutral palette for the bathroom is a big step for creating a soothing atmosphere. Consider such palettes when choosing your paint color and bathroom tile. 

Natural materials, such as stone tile, pebbled walls and floors, and wooden vanities give the bathroom a very organic and spa-like touch to your bathroom. Also, the more natural light you have in the bathroom of your new home, the better. But if there is little light in the bathroom, consider painting your walls white. Paired with light colored floors, like bamboo flooring, creates a natural light effect. And if you love taking long soaks in the evening, install a dimmer for a low-light, tranquil environment.

Mixing Tile in New Homes | El Paso Home Builders

Since tile comes in all different colors, styles, material, and shapes, it's important to consider a few things before buying tile for your new home. Houzz gives their tips on mixing and matching tile.

Tile that has a busy pattern should be used sparingly. "Use small statement tiles, such as these oblong mosaics, to create a feature on a backsplash or another small area rather than across an entire room. "

In a small space in your home, such as the bathroom, you can definitely mix a few tile patterns. Just be sure to mix both small and large patterns to help create a balance. Also, remember that it is a good idea to mix shapes and patterns, and not color. A dark grey grout in between tile will be visually pleasing. 

Have you considered stone for your new home? It looks beautiful! For appeal, it's best to treat the stone as a neutral. " To soften the graphic grout lines as well as to create a cohesive design, pair them with natural gray stone, which adds visual interest with a neutral pattern that doesn’t try to compete."

When you're out looking for tile for your new home, be sure to take home samples first. You'll get a better feel for how it will end up looking, and you can experiment with how different tiles work together.
