How to Choose Quaint Bathroom Accessories

Imagine a room filled with berry red walls complemented by poppy motifs and stylish slipcovers to offset your quaint bathroom. Throw in a few layered fabrics, such as curtains for your shower, to enhance the room. Floral shower curtains are ideal for quaint baths designed with berry red wall designs.

Choosing bathroom accessories is easy if you have your design laid out. Artisans often recommend that you make a blueprint before redesigning your bath, even if you are adding bathroom accessories. You want to scope out the area first to consider what accessories would look best in your space.

For quaint baths, keep in mind that you are choosing bathroom accessories for old-fashioned or picturesque rooms. Of course, you want to choose charming items, yet you want to keep it on a traditional level. Sometimes traditional rooms require a twist of odd and peculiar items that make them appealing to the eye. When designing quaint environments, why not consider braided rugs?

How to choose braided rugs:
Braided rugs include handcrafted rugs made from "sweatshirt fleece." The rugs are easy to make, or you can find them in any craft store.

How are the rugs made?
The rugs are made from narrow pieces of wool. You can use soft fleece from sweatshirts to make the wool. Choose high-fiber cottons, as the material is easy to wash. In addition, the rugs absorb better than other materials. To create a traditional look, try using a variety of fibers.

How do I choose materials?
You will need fleece from sweatshirts to create your braid. Choose a variety of colors, unless you prefer plain. You will also need a sewer's mat and a pair of rotary cutters, as well as thread designed to hold up to heavy material. In addition, you will need Braidkin or similar lacers.

How do I choose the needle?
You should consider using large-eye needles, such as craft needles with round and blunted ends. You will need common craft thread and needles as well.

Do I need anything else to finish the rug?
Sure, you will need clamps to hold your fabric in place. In addition, you will need clothespins, which you can use to secure the ends of your braided rug while adding lace. The last item you will need is a non-slip mat/pad. You want to place the pad beneath the rug once you are finished.

How do I get started?
Getting started is easy. Simply cut 2 inches into the fleece and strip it transversely over the width of the material. Take 2 strips of the fabric and bring them together, bringing your fleeces in union, and on the bias, begin stitching. You will need to trim the seams, making allowances at ¼ or ½ inches, depending on your preference. To open the seam, use your fingers and press. At the raw edges of the material, fold it until it meets with the middle region and stretch the strip until it faintly rolls the edges inwardly. At the edges, fold, bringing your 3rd strip to the middle of the cloth and fold it again in half. Make sure the sides are open toward the right side of the fabric. Next, insert your needle and thread at your strip, layering it until the strips join, starting again with the first step, leaving seam allowances, and folding the strips to join in half. Enclose the end of your third strip and finish by stitching the rug together. Now you have the bathroom accessories of the century created by your own hands.
