I don’t like it when things do not look updated and simple. As of recently. There’s a new trend in home decor where homeowners are starting to bring back a lot of styles and colors from the 1970s and 1980s again. I find 70s decor to be very drab, dull and dated. That’s the way some of my house looks, but I have been working on updating it because I do not like it. I invited someone who makes custom glass in Somerset County, NJ to come over and help me with ideas for a new shower door, and then I updated the bathroom based on what that shower door looked like. It turned out even better than I had hoped.
It was common for a lot of people in the 1970s and 80s to use colors that are sort of obnoxious in today’s times. In the 70s, they used a lot of gold and avocado colors. Sometimes they would throw in a little bit of orange or teal as well. Then in the 1980s, people love using pastel colors like pink and lavender in their homes. Both of these color themes scream “Update me!” Sadly, I have two bathrooms, and I got stuck with both of these color schemes so that is what I’m working on getting rid of.
My master bath is the one that had the 1970s colors. It had a tiny little shower in it and no bath tub at all. I stripped the old wallpaper off of the walls so that I can start with a clean slate and look at things with fresh eyes. Then, I called in a company who put in a custom bathtub and shower combination for me. it looks beautiful. They do not do custom glass work, but they referred me to a company that does it. Someone from Bad Company came over and I told him what I was looking to do. He then came up with a great suggestion and he tells me to visualize it without even seeing it! He then created it installed it. I’m very happy with what that room looks like.
