From Drab to Dreamy: Bathroom Remodel Ideas
When it comes to interior design and decorating, most people tend to focus on bedrooms and living rooms. They rationalize that the bedroom is one’s own private sanctuary, and living rooms or kitchens are where guests are entertained, so it’s important to make sure that those rooms are presentable and welcoming. While this is perfectly reasonable, it results in people often neglecting to take care of another very important room: the bathroom! Keep reading for more bathroom remodel tips.
Whether you’ve recently bought an old home, are building a house for the first time, or are just looking for a nice change, home renovations can be stressful and expensive. That’s why it’s important to simply take it one thing at a time. If you’re looking for some ideas to change up your bathroom without having to knock down and reconstruct the entire building, just keep on reading. Once you have identified the steps you want to take then contact a licensed contractor to help make those dreams a reality.
- Focus on your shower or tub area and ask yourself the following questions: Are the walls moldy and need caulking? Are there any glass or porcelain structures that need replacing? What can you do to maximize storage (be it installing new shelves or just hanging up metal caddies)? Think about what you can do to make it more comfortable, and scale down to what is realistic for your budget. Consider replacing the shower curtain with a nice glass door. There are lots of options, and since the bathroom is about bathing, upgrading your current shower situation can be a great place to start. Even if you don’t want to redo the entire unit, getting a new shower head or fixing the drain can make a huge difference in the overall quality of your bathing experience.
- Next, check out your sink or vanity area. How is the medicine cabinet holding up? If you’re sharing a bathroom, could it be a worthy investment to install a multiple sink system to expand counter space and give each person their own allotted area? At the very least, you could replace the faucet with a more energy-efficient one, or replace the sink basin with a new one without all those stains and cracks.
- Now take a look at your walls and the flooring. Repainting the walls can make a huge difference, as can touching up any grout and tiles that have cracked or worn down. These effects are only going to be maximized if you stick to a cohesive decorative theme. There’s no need to go completely overboard if you don’t want to – it is just a bathroom, after all. However, matching your wall art, decorations, shower curtain, and bath mat will help tie the room together.
- The truth is that remodeling your bathroom doesn’t have to be a huge, exhausting project. All you need to do is look at the individual aspects and consider how replacing them, repairing them, or otherwise modifying them can help bring a more organized feel to the room. There’s no need to overthink it, and of course, how you choose to design your home is up to you. We hope you’re feeling a little more inspired to take on this project. Good luck!
