Remodeling your bathroom can be a frustrating experience. Dust in your house, loud sawing and hammering at all hours of the day, and workmen constantly walking around – not to mention the expense and inconvenience! If you don’t have a second bath, you could even find yourself showering at the neighbor’s house for a few months.
Luckily, having a beautiful bathroom doesn’t have to involve all these annoyances. In fact, you can quickly and easily give your bathroom a makeover in just a weekend. You’ll be amazed by the difference!
Play With Color
The bathroom is a great place to let your playful side out and try out some more dramatic colors than you would use in the rest of the house. White tile will complement bright, vivid colors.
Light, bright colors are a great answer to the usual bathroom blues, and will also open up a dark or small bathroom, making it seem larger and more inviting. A fresh coat of paint is a quick way to take your bathroom to the next level.
Natural light is a great look for any room, but sometimes, especially in a bathroom with small windows, it can be hard to make use of.
Adding a large, floor-to-ceiling mirror is a great way to expand a small bathroom. Place it opposite a window, even a small one, to reflect tons of natural light back into the room.
Rusted or tarnished fixtures in the bathtub or sink are a sure way to make your bathroom look old and uncared for. Because plumbing is often kept the same through multiple homeowners, sometimes you end up with unattractive fixtures that you don’t want.
There’s an easy fix for this – you can actually install new drain covers over the existing ones to fit the old plumbing while still updating the look. These can be selected to match any style of tub or décor.
The small details are what will really pull your bathroom together! Pay attention to these often-overlooked things and guests will be blown away by the coordination in your bathroom.
Matching towels, a complementary shower curtain, and a comfy, plush bath mat are just a few ways you can add some interest to your bathroom. If your bathroom is a neutral color and you don’t want to repaint, this is a great place to add some pops of color.
Enjoy Your Beautiful Bathroom!
The bathroom is one room in your house where you are guaranteed to spend at least a little time each day. It should be comfortable and inviting! Adding some art to the walls or a stack of books by the toilet can add to the homey feeling. Follow these simple tips and you are sure to end up with a bathroom you love!
