Things to Consider for Your Bathroom Remodel
A bathroom remodel can be a huge undertaking. There are many moving parts involved and it is important to make sure things go as smoothly as possible. Even with a small budget, there are many changes you can make to improve the look of your bath.
Hide the Plumbing
One simple way to improve your bathroom is by hiding the plumbing—especially under the vanity mirror. This also includes hiding the plumbing under the toilet. Consider using a small table or cabinet or even a small curtain with a similar design to your overall décor. Besides the look, hiding plumbing also helps you to maintain the temperature in the bathroom, making it warm and inviting for your guests.
Add towel racks
By hanging a few more racks or even towel hangers on the wall, you can make a significant change in how your bathroom looks. As you know, towels end up on the floor as often as they do on the rack, so this change will help give your bathroom a cleaner look.
Lighting is always a major part of a bathroom remodel. If you intend on changing the overall bathroom lighting as part of your design change, then this may involve a larger cost, but it’s worth it. A simple lighting fixture change can increase the lighting in your bathroom and overall appeal.
The bathroom is used every single day and is one of the most frequently visited rooms in the house. However, the bathroom is often neglected because it’s a functional room tucked away in the corner of most homes. To help you navigate the designing aspect of your remodel, here are a few themes to consider.
Beach theme — Bathrooms use a lot of water so beach and ocean themes are often popular for these rooms. Beach themes are popular and inviting. You could start by painting the room peach or bright blue and then add several seashells or similar accessories. Any furniture in the bathroom should be wicker or whitewashed wooden pieces to add to the natural “driftwood” feeling.
Ocean theme — Any ocean theme will require the use of pale green or blue paint colors to properly convey the feeling of the sea. Again whitewashed or dark wood-grained furnishings really complement this style of room.
Tropical theme — If neither ocean nor beach themes feel, you could consider a tropical decorating style for your bathroom. Tan and jungle green are great choices for this particular theme. A few touches of red can really add some spark to the room afterwards. Rattan furniture always looks great in tropical style bathrooms and a sisal rug is also the perfect replacement for the traditional bathroom rug.
Italian theme — This particular theme is rich and luxurious and perfect for bathrooms with a spa or soaking tub. Most Italian themes also use mosaics, which look great in any shower. If designing an Italian style bathroom then use gold, deep blue or red colors in your paint scheme for maximum effect.
Country theme — This is a nice relaxed theme. Strong country colors are red, green, blue, yellow or tan. You can dress up your bathroom with French accessories or dress it down with some rustic elements. Pine furniture works best with this particular style.
