Are you thinking of
remodeling your bathroom? You must remember that the lack of proper
planning will not work in your favor. In order to help you out, here
are some simple ways to make your bathroom look as good as new.
Remodeling the bathroom
of your house is perhaps the most impressive way by which you can add
value to your property. It has been recently found in a survey that
bathrooms are the most renovated and remodeled parts in households.
The reason they get remodeled so often is that bathrooms are usually
small in size and although the cost remains less, the scope to bring
your creativity into play is literally infinite.
Let us look at the ways
which can help in making your bathroom stand out as the most
beautiful room in your house:
Stylish Mirror: Most people believe that bathroom mirrors only
serve the purpose of combing hair or checking makeup. However, a
right-sized mirror not only adds light to the bathroom, but also
helps in visually expanding the bathroom. Bathroom mirrors are
available in various sizes, shapes, frames and designs. You will have
to purchase the one which will sync well with the bathroom.
Bathtub: There is hardly any vision more soothing than the
call of a relaxing bath in a bathtub after a tired and toilsome day.
Therefore, it is essential that you choose the right bathtub.
Ideally, a bathtub with a length of 5 feet (60 inches) is fine. A
perfect bathtub supports your back and beck, and you do not want your
entire body to fit inside the tub. you can compromise on the length
and go for an extra-deep one.
Lighting: Except for lighting the mirror area with sconces, it
is better to keep the lighting in bathrooms as dim as possible. Dim
lights has a very pleasant and aesthetic appeal, and helps to soothe
the senses quicker. In short, your bathroom will be a better place
for you to relax. If you do not like an all-throughout dim setting,
install a dimmer switch to increase the power of the lights whenever
Durable Flooring: Flooring in a bathroom should have a great
durability and also must have an excellent water-resistant quality.
Stone, marble and ceramic tiles are the most suitable ones. However,
there is one very important thing you need to keep in mind. When you
make the purchase, make sure that the tiles are non-slip. This will
lower the chances of accidents due to slipping.
Save Space: The last thing you
would want to see is your bathroom all cluttered. In order to
systematize your bathroom, cabinet
installation is your best option.
Cabinets come in handy in organizing sets of clothes, towels and
other accessories. If the size of your bathroom is small, you can go
for vertical cabinet systems as they take up very little floor area
but provides an adequate amount of storing space.
Open-concept Shower Area: If you are uncomfortable with the
idea of a confined shower stall or a shower area covered with doors
or curtains, opt for an open-concept shower area. High wall-mounted
showerheads or ceiling-mounted showerheads will give you an open air
Unless you are going
for a complete overhaul, do not move the plumbing to a different
location in the bathroom. Changing their places is often very heavy
on the pocket. Moreover, you can also place houseplants like Aloe
Vera which grow well in the humid conditions of a bathroom. They will
not only keep the air fresh, but a small touch of greenery will also
make the bathroom look more attractive.
