There are many reasons why people decide to remodel their bathrooms. Very often there is some problem with the pipes and the tiles have to be removed.
Once such a mess is created, people decide to completely redecorate their bathroom.
Also, some people wish to put their home up for sale and the state of the bathroom is one of the most important elements that affect the property value.
Whatever the reason, you are looking at a potentially significant expenditure, which should provide an excellent return on investment. Still, in order to be satisfied with the result, there are quite a few things you need to be careful about. Naturally, the design is the crucial one, which is why we’re going to have a look at some popular trends.
If possible, you should re-glaze your existing tub or salvage one from a junkyard. You’ll be able to enjoy a fully functional fixture with some history and you’d be doing your part when it comes to reducing pollution, as well.
Just a bit of chalkboard paint can go a long way when it comes to upcycling dressers and turning them into vanities. What is particularly fashionable about it is the fact that you can really create something unique, which perfectly fits your style and the style you’d like your bathroom to have.
Even new items can be played with
When it comes to design, it’s not really important how old an item is if it can be remodeled to suit the bathroom better. That means you should keep an open mind even in relation to newer items in your bathroom. Feel free to experiment, let your imagination run wild and personalize every item that allows you to do so. Whether you simply add a touch of pain or customize it in some other way, you’re bound to get some rather unique elements.
You should by no means underestimate the importance of having state-of-the-art bathroom accessories since they can really make your bathroom stand out, which can be a decisive factor when prospective buyers consider their options. So, be ready to splash out even a bit more on what you find attractive and what you believe would go well with the rest of your bathroom.
Even if you choose the most traditional tiles, you can achieve a much more inviting atmosphere if you simply arrange them in a way that they create an unusual pattern. This may be too daunting a task for you, but you can always hire an expert to arrange the tiles the way you want. Again, having a unique pattern is considered very trendy and fashionable.
Instead of having a cabinet on the wall, why not actually have it in the wall. If possible, remove a chunk of the wall and install the cabinet inside the wall. This untypical detail is bound to attract attention.
Another feature that can easily be replaced to improve the overall design. Depending on the style you’re after and the available budget, you can choose from a wide range of models and materials available. Try to find one that will go well with other elements, but at the same be a focal point in its own right.
Instead of having a single bar, you might want to go for those racks that have additional storage above the rack. You can keep some bathroom products or even flowers and candles there. That way, you’d add a touch of class, while at the same time you’d avoid keeping too many things around the sink.
Remodeling your bathroom is at the same time challenging and exciting. Depending on how you approach the project, how much time and money you’re ready to invest and whether you are creative, you can really create some amazing results when it comes to bathroom remodeling.
Not only would such a revamped bathroom increase the overall value of your home, but it would also contribute to a better standard of living in case you don’t feel like moving house. Whatever the reason, the investment is justified.
