The bathroom is a highly functional space that most people neglect when it comes to decor. But what they fail to realize is that it is very important to have a well designed bathroom that will look stylish and clean at the same time.
It usually is the smallest room in the house but that doesn’t mean that it’s quality shouldn’t be as high as the rest of the rooms. In fact, renovating your bathroom can be one of the most influential investments that you can make. Let’s face it, you’ll be certainly using the bathroom multiple times a day for various reasons and feeling comfortable in it will increase your quality of life at home.
Remodeling the bathroom is certainly not the cheapest renovation that you can undertake in your home but it is one of the most rewarding ones. Where should you start?
It all depends on how much renovations your bathroom needs. The first thing that you should consider is altering the layout if it is needed. When that is clearly defined, you can work on the walls and floors, choosing colors that make you feel comfortable and match the rest of the home’s color scheme.
Next up are the furniture, utilities and accessories. You really need to know what you’re looking for before you start with this. Take a look at the images that we’ve featured and inspire yourself from the following designs. They will help you to better understand what it is that you want. Do you want a free standing bath or would you rather go with a mounted rain shower head, or perhaps a combination of the two?
By seeing plenty of designs from different styles, you’ll have a better idea of what can fit in the space that is available to you.
This is merely a suggestion, but consider a soft close toilet seat for your toilet to avoid accidentally dropping the seat and slamming it against the porcelain. It’s just a quiet way to save you some money on replacements.
Do you have any idea about the amount of storage space that your bathroom needs to provide? How much space do you have available for cabinets?
A free standing bathroom cabinet or a bathroom mirror cabinet will both save some space while keeping up the functionality but if that won’t be enough storage for you, you can always add a couple of tall bathroom cabinets on the side, considering that you have the space for them. In the end, you can always redirect some of the items that you store in your bathroom to another room. You really should only store things that you commonly use in the bathroom, otherwise, there’s no reason to clutter the space with stuff that you don’t really use in the bathroom.
Last but not least – lighting. Yes, lighting goes last when remodeling the bathroom, although the installations should be done before everything else.
Once you’ve got the final layout of your new bathroom, you can find suitable lighting fixtures. Regardless of what kind of lighting you choose to go for, an illuminated bathroom mirror will always add a nice, modern touch to the overall lighting and decor.
