Bathroom remodeling can be started with installing little luxuries in the bathroom to pamper yourself such as whirlpool tubs, dual showerheads, shower systems and even just adding body sprays to the shower area. Turning bathrooms into personal retreat to help you relax and spend sometime with yourself is latest craze. People install stereos and TV centers in their master baths too to enjoy their bath time to the fullest. Major bathroom remodeling projects include reconstructing a bathroom on a larger scale. People may free up some existing space or make additions to the bathroom by taking up some space in the room or balcony. Bathroom remodeling may require cabinetry for a storage and organizing solution and space saver.
If you are on a budget, choose small bathroom remodeling options and
turn your old bathroom into a new one by changing bathroom accessories
and mirror and perhaps the color of bathroom walls, shower curtains and
window treatments. You may want to change your bath tub and wall systems
that can be installed on top of your present installation to give them a
new look. You may also go for major bathroom remodelling work and a
complete bathroom makeover by upgrading the appliances, breaking and
reconstructing bathroom walls to add more space, completely redoing the
plumbing and optimizing your bathroom space. In this article, we will
discuss some of the bathroom remodeling options that you may want to
Display framed painting and collectibles on a shelf added to a wall.
Put your soaps, bath salts and pretty toiletries in antique bowls or
shaving mugs and add colored beads and cheap faux pearl necklace to it
for a romantic effect. You may also want to add aroma candles to your
vanity countertop or near your bathtub. In a master bath or a large
bathroom, you may have the luxury of space to add outdoor furniture such
as a wicker table or chair. Accent lighting can be done around a
beautiful painting or on top edge of the wall tile using low-voltage
strip of lights. Decorative wood beams on the ceiling and mirrored
cabinets on the wall can open up your bathroom. You may want to just
color wash and repaint your wood cabinets.
Colored staining can also give a new look to your bathroom vanity or
wood cabinets such as a light-colored stain for the background and
brighter and bolder stains for the drawers. Bathroom remodeling does not
only mean breaking and reconstruction. Adding little things and
rearranging things may also give a new look and feel to your bathroom.
You can put some potted flowering plants or fresh flowers neatly in a
unusual vases such as wall vases, window boxes or even old watering cans
on your vanity countertop to give a new look to your bath. You can
replace the door of your bathroom cabinet with a Victorian screen door
or a framed trellis. A beveled mirror over the sink framed with tiles
and tiled mosaics add a creative touch to your bathroom decor.
While doing bathroom remodeling, it is best to make rough draft on
paper using a realistic scale. There should be one draft for your old
bathroom with labeled fixtures and measurements and one draft for the
new bathroom you have visualized. Try to include all the desired
features at first and check for the dimensions and styles that you can
incorporate in your bath to get the desired feel and know what is
feasible. Eliminate what seems like just a floating whim if there is
limited space. Brainstorm to finalize a bathroom layout and make sure
that you have accurate measurements and you have made provisions for the
adequate space between the fixtures. Height of the fixtures is as
important as its length, width and depth. Use non-slip surfaces and
anchor down rugs for the bathroom safety purposes. This bathroom
drafting will guide you in making your choices and help you to decide
what to buy and what not to buy while doing bathroom remodeling.
