How to orient yourself with the colours of a masonry bathroom? 

 When the masonry bathroom is built in houses with a particularly modern style, it is usually preferable to cover the walls with decorations made with rather angular and geometric lines, perhaps combining contrasting colors, such as cream with dark brown or black or light pink with dark red or burgundy.

On the other hand, in sober or classic style houses, majolica tiles made in very soft solid colours are generally used, such as light blue and pastel green or beige: colours that, in addition to giving the room a feeling of greater breadth, can offer both refinement and luminosity.

However, it is superfluous to add that, as normally happens for other types of work, also with regard to the construction of a bathroom in masonry are obviously respected the lines, colors and decorations chosen by the customer according to his precise preferences.

When you ask a company what is the amount to invest in a masonry bathroom, it is also necessary that it can know the size and characteristics of the area on which to work, but must also understand how created the same bathroom according to the needs of its customers. It is then necessary to choose the type and quality of materials to be used for coatings (majolica, marble, etc..), the type of sanitary ware to be installed and the type of fittings to be installed.
