It’s always a good idea to start remodeling one room or another, but it’s always best to start with something that you can do, and the bathroom is just that type of room. It’s not always very big, and it has all the strict necessities for having a great start in the morning.
However, as things might be old or out of style, you need to do a little remodeling from time to time, and we’re here to help you take an informed decision on these aspects.
This being said, let’s see some bathroom remodeling ideas that anyone can do in their spare time.
Yes, the tiles are important as they offer the main aspect of the room. If you want to change them, it’s better to leave it to a professional. However, if you want to take them down, you can do it easily with just a hammer. Even so, once you’ve taken them down, you’ll need to bring the wall to its initial aspect – meaning flat and fine, with no asperities on in and no bumps. There are special solutions that you can use and once you’ve done this, you can add a new layer of tiles or you can paint the walls in the color that you want.
It’s a trend now to use wallpaper instead of tiles or paint, but keep in mind that the room is predisposed to humidity and you will need a quality wallpaper that is specially made for this room. You can choose anything, from a flowery design to geometric or even abstract. The main thing is that it needs to go with the rest of the furniture that is there. For a woman, it’s more adequate to use something feminine like flowers or pastel colors, but for a man, it can go something darker and stronger like blue or even black. However, men usually prefer tiles or marble in their bathroom.
These are also important, because you will use them every day. Make sure you get new faucets for both the sink and the bathtub, and don’t forget about the lighting fixtures. Those are important because you use the mirror every morning, and you need to have the best light in the entire house.
These are not very expensive, unless you want to add a marble tub to your bathroom or one of those rain showers, which are fancy and trendy.
The furniture might be a little more complicated to change, but you can have it custom made, if you can’t find something to fit in your bathroom and be the color that you want. It’s better to have something made just for your bathroom, as usually the stores have only plain colors or something that is not so attractive.
With a custom made furniture – like special cabinets or shelves, you can use all the space that you want and make it appropriate for your needs.
The details are the ones that make all the difference in a bathroom. You can have the best tub or the most beautiful vanity – if the rest of the things are not perfect, neither will be your bath. For example, keep in mind that the towel rack needs to be brand new, if you change the rest of the items. The same rule goes for the knobs from the drawers and from the vanity and even for the door know.
The mirror is also important – if you have enough space on that wall, and if you want to create the impression of a bigger room, you can add a very big mirror to cover the entire wall above the vanity. It’s not easy to install such a mirror, as it can be pretty big, but a specialist will do it for you in no time.
Don’t forget that everything should be great when you finish with your bathroom remodeling, so you can get started whenever you need to change your mornings!
