Design tips for decorating a organic style bathroom

Here’s how to achieve the organic aesthetic room of your dreams.

What’s the best way to design and decorate a organic bathroom?

On one hand, bathrooms are undeniably practical spaces. They serve a very specific purpose and are often the smallest rooms in any home. On the other hand, bathrooms also double as havens for cleansing and self-care, an intimate escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Small room, big personality.

Designing a organic bathroom that's both functional and stylish involves combining practicality with aesthetic appeal. Whether you're in the process of a bathroom remodel or looking to makeover your existing one, these are the key elements to include in your design**:

  • Tile: Tile is typically the first choice you’ll want to make when designing a bathroom. You may opt to tile the entire bathroom or just the floors in a powder room or backsplash for the shower or bathtub area. Select tiles that are durable, non-slip, and easy to clean. Tiles range in all different shapes, sizes, materials, and layouts. From penny rounds to large format floor tiles, zellige to subway tile, or checkerboard to herringbone, your choice of tile will set the tone for the whole bathroom. And don’t forget the grout! Your choice of grout color can completely change the way your tile looks in the space.
  • Paint or Wallpaper: If you don’t choose to tile your walls, you’ll want to select a paint or wallpaper that can withstand moisture and humidity. Vinyl wallpaper is best for this application. We are partial to covering walls, ceilings, and trim in a uniform paint color to create a cohesive look. Or consider an accent wall to serve as a focal point.
  • Bathroom Vanity: The bathroom vanity should balance the organic style with functionality, offering adequate storage and countertop space. The vanity provides place to wash hands or brush teeth, and storage for toiletries and personal care items. It’s common for modern bathrooms to include a vanity with a double sink. Sink options include under-mount, vessel, and pedestal sinks and range in materials from porcelain, stone, or glass.
  • Mirror or Medicine Cabinet: Choose a mirror or medicine cabinet that complements the vanity in size and style. Consider a framed mirror that matches the bathroom’s organic design style, or a frameless mirror for a sleek, more modern look.
  • Toilet & Sink: The modern standard for toilets and sinks is white porcelain. But if you really want to make a statement, consider going with a color! Colored fixtures are having a comeback moment or you can source a vintage option.
  • Shower or Bathtub (for full baths): Depending on the size and layout of the bathroom, you may opt for a shower or bathtub (or a bathtub with shower combination). A shower will consist of a showerhead, faucet controls, and a shower enclosure (shower curtain or glass door), while a bathtub provides a space for soaking and relaxation. If you have the space, you may opt for a separate shower and a freestanding clawfoot tub.
  • Lighting: Combine task, ambient, and accent lighting for a layered lighting scheme. Consider the placement of lighting fixtures to eliminate shadows and evenly light the space. Dimmer switches can adjust the mood. Sconces are popular options for vanity areas.
  • Faucets: Faucets are an opportunity to add a decorative touch. Select finishes that match other metal elements in the bathroom, such as cabinet hardware or lighting fixtures. Consider water-saving models for environmental sustainability.
  • Organic Bathroom Decor: From bath mats and shower curtains to soap dishes, toothbrush and toilet paper holders, bath accessories should be both functional and decorative. Coordinate the color and pattern with the overall color scheme and organic style to bring your design vision to life.

What materials and home decor should I use to achieve a organic bathroom design?

The organic interior design style is an ode to the natural world, emphasizing harmony, sustainability, and a connection to nature through interior spaces. It champions the use of natural shapes, drawing inspiration from the organic forms and irregular contours found in the environment. This design philosophy extends to furniture and decor, which often feature flowing lines and natural motifs, bringing a sense of the outdoors inside. Adopting an organic design approach creates interiors that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also foster a sense of wellbeing and environmental consciousness, offering a tranquil sanctuary that aligns closely with the rhythms of nature.

To achieve an organic bathroom, start with a soft, muted color palette featuring neutrals and earth tones that echo the serenity of natural landscapes. Then start layering in textures and materials. Materials like wood, stone, and natural fibers like cotton and linen are common organic style choices because of their eco-friendly and non-toxic properties. Indoor plants are a staple in organic interiors, enhancing the space with vibrant greenery and a living element that bolsters the indoor-outdoor connection. Maximize natural light to illuminate the space and highlight the natural beauty of the materials and colors used.
