7 Great Bathroom Remodeling Ideas
Remodeling your bathroom can be a difficult process. Especially when trying to decide what you should and should not do. The problem is that it’s hard to decide what you want to live with, and these decisions are literally decisions you will have to live with. Luckily, here are some great bathroom remodeling ideas that can save you both time and money while producing results you can live with.
- Pick Elegant Fixtures
It’s a fact that an elegant sink containing graceful lines is more attractive to both you and guests than a blocky cabinet vanity. The simple lines have a certain type of beauty that surpasses even the acrylic versions. Most elegant fixture is also more durable in the long run as well.
- Try It Before You Buy It
No literally. Sit in the bathtub before you buy it. Make sure it feels comfortable and that you wouldn’t mind taking a bath in it. Otherwise, you may have to spend the money to buy a new one later, simply because you can’t stand this one. Or, it may just sit in your bathroom un-used for ever. Plus you want to make sure that it is built in a durable fashion, what better way to find out than to sit in it?
- Don’t Fall Through The Floor
When creating your floor plans, make sure you select durable flooring. Typically hardwood looks the best, but keep in mind that if you have a lot of small children that like to drip dry; hard wood can rot. Tile may also be better for the look and feel of the bathroom. The most important thing is to consider who is using the bathroom and the design your implementing before selecting the floor, then make sure what you select is going to be able to withstand the use. The last thing you need is to come home from work and find your bathroom has fallen through the floor. This could result in having to redo the entire bathroom.
- Style For Styling
The mirror is where you fix your hair, do your makeup, and even just glance in one last time before rushing out the door. Make sure that you choose a stylish mirror for your bathroom. Even though it seems like a minor consideration, you do not want a bathroom that clashes with the rest of the room. The mirror shouldn’t stick out like a sore thumb. The mirror can be used to compliment the sink, and save you money on more expensive décor.
- More Room?
Consider implementing an open shower. One that requires no curtain or no door. You can use a ceiling mounted shower head and a floor drain to keep the water inside the stall. Doing this will allow more room while showering and prevent the décor from being ruined by glass doors that stick out or ugly shower curtains. Seriously, have you ever seen a really pretty shower curtain?
- Use What You Got
You can implement storage areas into spaces between objects. This will allow you to save space on the floor area and maximize storage all at once. Be careful in your selection, however, because you don’t want the bathroom to look to cramped either.
- Quality Matters
Buy a quality toilet. This is typically easier to clean and do not stain as easily, making the bathroom look clean and fresh instead of looking bad even after days of scrubbing. They are also more durable and won’t have to be replaced as often. Spending the extra money in the beginning can save you more in the long run.
