The bathroom is a room in our home that can be easily transformed into an oasis. Because bathrooms are generally smaller than other rooms in the house, they are a good jumping off point for a home improvement project. If you’re looking to spruce up your home, consider a bathroom remodel. Turn your bathroom into a place that brings you serenity and calm, so that every bath or shower feels like a trip to the spa.
Read on for seven contemporary bathroom remodel tips that will help inspire you for your next project.
1) Vanity Top Update
If you have a vanity in your bathroom, consider updating it. If there’s a top on your vanity that’s removable, you can replace it with new material. While doing this, you may also opt to replace the sink as well. For a vanity top, choose quartz, marble, or composite. A light color will make your bathroom look larger. Flecks of color or iridescence can add an interesting element to an overall clean appearance. By simply replacing the top of the vanity, you can avoid the cost of replacing the whole thing. This may also be a good eco-friendly bathroom remodel option if the rest of the vanity is in good condition.
2) Full Vanity Update
If the body of the vanity is outdated or in bad shape, it may be time to replace or update it. You could opt to refinish the body of the vanity by sanding, painting, and replacing hardware. Alternatively, you could purchase a new vanity in a different style. This upgrade can go a long way in improving the look and feel of your bathroom.
Paint is the quickest and easiest way to upgrade a space. A bathroom remodel should always include a new coat of paint. Go for something light and neutral to keep the space feeling calm. Pops of blue or green can add a bold touch.
Wallpaper is an emerging trend. In a bathroom remodel, you may choose to add wallpaper to all of the wall space, or to reserve it for an accent wall or area. Choose something with metallic elements to evoke water and catch the sunlight.
5) Replace Hardware
An easy way to upgrade your bathroom is to replace hardware – your bathroom remodel would not be complete without it. Change out knobs, handles, and towel bars. You can even replace faucet knobs. Choose something that is uniform so that the whole bathroom matches.
Change out your bathroom sink for a quick wow-factor. If you change your sink, you may also need to change the surrounding vanity top.
7) Tub Install
Do you like taking baths? If so, you may wish to install a bath as part of your bathroom remodel. If you have a shower in your bathroom, consider switching it out for a tub. Even though tubs generally take up more room than showers, they don’t have to. There are many models that are space efficient as well as effective and comfortable.
