Eclectic Bathroom Design
I've been told I have eclectic taste. What does this mean? Eclectic is a term describing a combination of many different elements of styles, mediums, or themes in one "package." If you have eclectic taste in music, you might enjoy many genres, from classical to jazz to Broadway show tunes. If you have eclectic taste in clothing, you might wear designer jeans with a gauze shirt and a Victorian-era jacket. If you have eclectic taste in home decor or interior design, you might have a room with furniture from different eras or constructed with different materials or containing a range of patterns and textures. What is eclectic bathroom design? Since bathrooms are relatively small compared to other rooms in one's home, they're a great place to showcase your varied sense of design. There isn't a set of rules which state what should or should not be included in an eclectic bathroom. You can basically use whatever you want to use. If you are having your bathroom remodeled, tell the people designing and building the room what your likes and dislikes are. If you are having your bathroom redecorated, tell the person creating the new look all the colors, textures, and materials you like and also all the ones you don't like.
