Are you tired of your dull, uninspiring bathroom? Have you finally decided on giving it an overhaul? You will not regret this decision. However, with inadequate experience and knowledge on bathroom renovations, you will probably struggle with finding the right concept for an ideal bathroom space. The following are five ways to transform your bathroom into a unique masterpiece.
Get Comfortable with a Huge Tub and Open Shower
When someone mentions bathroom transformations, you can’t help but include the possibility for expansion and more space. The need for more bathroom space is often the leading reason why most homeowners choose to renovate. You could opt for a bigger bathtub that gives you more relaxation space. Choose modern designs to help redefine your bathroom. Open showers are also an option as they visually magnify the size of your bathroom. Go a little luxurious by adding different types of showerheads to create an environment for even more relaxation. Options for showers are vast. However, always consult with a plumber to figure out what will be the most accessible option for you and make the most use out of your limited space.
Interesting Tile Patterns and Shapes
Thanks to technology and new machinery, manufacturers are now producing all sorts of designs using normal tiles. They are also gradually incorporating striking colors and graphics to redefine traditional tiles. New models encourage the use of various formats not only on the floor but also on strategic wall points like around the bathroom mirror, ceiling accents, and bathroom back-splashes. Shop for the improved hexagon, Moroccan fish scales, diamond or chevron patterns. It might not seem like a big deal to skimp on your bathroom flooring, but it can make a dramatic difference in the overall feel of the space. There are plenty of options for all types of budgets. You might even want to consider making this the area of your bathroom design to splurge on.
Install Industrial Styled Sinks
While this style might not appeal to everyone’s eye, you might want to try it out. Instead of installing the normal bathroom sinks, consider going for the industrial styled sinks that offer huge fittings. You can find them in metal, wooden, funky tiled or marble design finishes. Depending on other bathroom features, you could pick either of the mentioned materials for your industrial styled bathroom. They say trends keep resurfacing and industrial styled sinks just showed up. Unique sinks can be chosen to fit whatever style you prefer as well. You don’t have to base all your other design options on the industrial style either. Farmhouse, bohemian chic, modern, and mid-century design styles can all be achieved.
Add Some Décor
People don’t usually think of their bathroom when shopping for home décor. However, this can be a great way to add a little extra design and luxury to your bathroom space. Once you’ve completed the technical aspects of a remodel, consider the decorative design. Creating a focal point through artwork or decorative shelving can add interest and personality. Don’t shy away from adding some plants as well. There are plenty of options for adding greenery that doesn’t require heavy light. Pots and vases can be a decorative focal point on their own. Candles can be a nice touch for décor and use while relaxing in the tub. Don’t limit your décor options just because they “don’t belong in bathroom space.” Think outside the box and put in a little extra effort in your bathroom space.
Re-paint Your Bathroom
Fresh paint is the cheapest way to make a big impact on your bathroom. Black is the new grey. If you are tired of bright colors, you will be amazed by how well black transforms spaces. You could try this with your bathroom. You don’t have to paint the entire area in black but give it a few dark touches. Choose matte finishes on light fixtures, mirror frames, vanities, tiles, cabinets, and other bathroom fittings. If black is a little too bold for you, try grey and see how well it blends with your bathroom and moods. You can also brighten up your bathroom space with light paint colors. Go for that trendy all-white look to help open up the space. This can especially make a difference in smaller bathrooms with limited space. It will make the room appear to be larger than it actually is.
A bathroom renovation is definitely something to look forward to. You can completely revamp the look at feel of the room. Utilize your bathroom for extra design elements to truly make it part of your living space. Possibilities are endless when it comes to designing your home, but the above ideas will leave you drooling at your bathroom’s new outlook.
