The bathroom is usually the smallest room in the house. Despite this, it is arguably the most important. Renovating this essential space is always a headache for homeowners. It requires money, efforts, and a great deal of foresight to remodel a bathroom successfully. That’s why we have written this article, highlighting the things you should do to ensure you achieve the best results for your remodeling project.
Plan Your Project and Work with Professionals
Few people own a “perfect bathroom”, so, identify what is wrong with yours. Discuss with those using it if it’s a family bathroom and get their ideas. Determine the layout of the bathroom, what it is that can be improved, and the extent of your remodeling. You can hire an interior designer to help you with this. Find the right people to execute your plan, whether you’re going with a contractor or individual tradespeople, prioritize quality. A sizable portion of the remodeling cost goes into labor, so be sure to get your value out of it.
Furnish with Luxury Items (Strategically)
Giving your bathroom that chic and luxury look is cheaper than you thought. Since it is a small space and you don’t have to fill it up with high-end items to make it look cool. All you need is one or two items placed in strategic places, and your bathroom won’t appear much different from that of a five-star hotel. We recommend you go with a high-end vanity and countertop as this is usually the focal point of any bathroom.
Painting is one cheap way of transforming your bathroom. Always go for bright colors such as white, cream, etc. They give the room a more spacious appearance and compliment other items in the room. When picking paints, choose high-quality waterproof paints with a satin finish. Whatever color you choose, always paint the ceilings in white. For this type of job, the best advice would be to hire interior painters.
Maximize your bathroom space and avoid clutter. Storage does not have to take up space in the bathroom. High and open shelves, wall racks, and hooks are simple ways to create extra storage space with stylish improvements to your bathroom.
Why not update some of the fixtures of your bathroom instead of removing it. Get a new cover and seat for your toilet instead of replacing the entire bowl. Upgrade cabinet pulls, knobs, faucets, showerheads, racks, etc. When you do this repaint alongside, you cut costs and achieve the results you desire.
Don’t forget to lighten up your bathroom. Get pendant lights affixed to the ceilings for general illumination and scones to illuminate specific areas. Lighting adds to the aesthetic appeal of your bathroom.
Have a Ventilation System
A bathroom is usually a damp place. All the moisture will not leave naturally and might cause odor or even damage some items made of wood. That’s why need a ventilation fan in your bathroom. If there is one already, the remodeling is a good time to upgrade it. And if there is none, there is no better time to install one than when remodeling.
