Remodeling your bathroom can turn a basic bathroom into an aesthetically pleasing part of your home that you enjoy spending time in, but getting started can be more challenging than it needs to be. Deciding which aspects of your bathroom are the most in need of adjustments is only the starting point, and finding a one-stop contractor that can handle any large or small aspect of your remodel can help you avoid wasting time and money by working with multiple companies to find someone you trust to handle each element of your bathroom remodel. Here are five ideas to consider when remodeling your bathroom!
Add a Fresh Coat of Paint
A new coat of paint is a relatively simple option for transforming the overall look of your bathroom. Whether you are interested in freshening up your current color with a coat of the same shade that makes it look new or turning your basic neutral paint into a brilliant shade of your favorite hue, repainting your bathroom is an important step in giving any bathroom a new life.
Choose a Color Scheme
Your bathroom is small enough and contains few enough visible items, so keeping everything within a limited color palette is even more important than it is for other rooms. Although it can be tempting to simply choose your favorite towels, shelves, decorations, and other items from a particular store, sticking to one color, metal, and type of wood is an important step in creating a cohesive bathroom that looks put together.
Consider a Walk-In Shower
Replacing your unattractive bathtub from several decades ago with a sleek and simple walk-in shower is a modern solution for making the most out of any small bathroom. This option takes up less wall and floor space than most traditional bathtubs and provides a more minimalist appearance. Choosing a sliding glass door instead of a shower curtain for your walk-in shower can further simplify this look.
Upgrade Your Lighting
Quality lighting can go a long way toward making your bathroom feel like home, but many older bathrooms have poor lighting fixtures and little natural light. Swapping basic yellow lightbulbs for larger white ones, adding attractive lamps and lighting fixtures that match the rest of your bathroom decor, and increasing the size of your windows can give you even more options for getting as much or as little light as you want.
Upgrade Your Fixtures
Swapping your old sink and bathtub faucets for shiny ones that work better is a simple upgrade that can significantly improve the appearance and functionality of your bathroom. Faucets that provide poor water pressure and a limited range of temperature choices are not very enjoyable, but this quick fix can turn your barely functioning shower into a calming place to relax. You may also need to upgrade or repair your water heater to get the most out of the quality of your water, as this goes hand in hand with the faucets themselves.
