Bathrooms are one of the most commonly used rooms in the home. Bathrooms are not only used by family members, but also people visiting the home. It is always nice to have an attractive bathroom that is beautifully decorated. From the paint color, fixtures, windows, and the decorations, there are many things a homeowner can do to add a little style and elegance to the bathroom.
Tips for interior bathroom redesign and renovation:
Flooring: The best type of wood bathroom floors are floors that are properly stained and sealed. This will prevent moisture getting into the wood and causing warping and rot. A wood floor adds appeal and charm to a bathroom.
Color: When painting the bathroom, certain colors can make the room look either bigger or smaller. If have a small bathroom and want it to appear larger, the colors to use should be white or cream. Brighter colors tend to make rooms look bigger while dark solid colors tend to make the room seem smaller. When painting the walls, make sure to apply a moisture resistant seal.
Lighting: When designing the bathroom, it is important to think about the lighting. If there is just one light on the ceiling that keeps the room dim, consider adding more lights. Adding lights around the mirrors will help brighten the room so people can see well. You can also add a dimmer switch to brighten and dim the room depending on the mood. Adding another mirror with a decorative frame is a nice touch and adds more lighting. Mirrors also give the impression of a larger room.
Fixtures: When you use colored fixture, over time they can start to look outdated. Using white or cream colored fixtures will ensure the fixtures stay modern looking.
Decorations: If you have a fair size bathroom, consider installing a few decorative items such as a decorative cupboard, artificial plant or plant that can thrive in a bathroom, decorative shelf to hold such items as soaps, towels…etc. You can also add a decorative hamper and hang decorations using hooks. Crafty items make for nice bathroom wall decorations. You can also add more décor by adding candles, fake flowers in baskets…etc.
Showers: When remodeling the bathroom, consider replacing the current shower with an enclosure shower. It not only looks appealing, when in use, it will cause the production of more steam and you can relax and enjoy a hot steam shower.
Walls and Windows: If you do not want to paint the walls, waterproof wall paneling is a good choice. Waterproof wall paneling can be made of PVC panels, plastic, acrylic or fiberglass cladding materials.
If you are considering updating your windows, depending on the age of your home, replacing double glazed windows with newer energy efficient will not only help with appearance but the temperature control as well.
This is particularly important for the bathroom because of the moisture.
Decorative window glass adds elegance to a bathroom. As well, add a decorative curtain or blinds to match the room and accessories.
Walls: One thing that is a little more costly is opening up the spacing either by renovating or tearing walls down. You’d be surprised how much extra space you can actually achieve.
If you have the budget and the layout, consider using an an professional contractor to tear down an exterior wall and turn it into an outdoor hybrid! Nothing compliments a swimming pool construction like a brilliant shower to hop right into!
