Designing a beautiful and relaxing bathroom is a fun and exciting part of your home design. You want your bathroom mirrors to be both stylish and functional, so it’s important to make sure you find the right mirror for your home. Bathroom mirrors are typically larger than other mirrors in your home and might double as storage units for your toiletries. Before settling on a bathroom mirror, make sure that you measure your bathroom and create a word bank of descriptive words to guide your design.


These uniquely textured walls help break up the blush pink so the solid color doesn’t appear too jarring. To pare down the color even more, introduce neutral browns, grays and whites in the cabinetry, backsplash or floor. This stone forges a natural look, but if you’re looking to create a softer feel, opt for white tiles. If your renovation is lacking color once it’s complete, try painting your mirror frame with a pop of color for that final touch.
These little wooden signs are really cute and they will certainly help you to achieve that rustic farmhouse look. You could even distress these just a bit to make them look even more rustic.

DIY wood signs will definitely add that rustic farmhouse touch.
