No matter how great a bathroom is, a time always comes when it needs a small or radical makeover to bring freshness and vitality to this relatively small but essential and frequently used room. Bathroom renovations (just like any other house remodeling) start with knowing what you want to achieve and the budget that you are working with. As you set the budget, remember that realizing exceptional results when renovating your bathroom does not have to cost a fortune. Even small changes can create a completely new feel for your bathroom.
Painting is one of the easiest ways to kick off bathroom renovations. The painting can be done on walls, ceilings, cabinets and any other surface. The colors you choose should be in sync with the new look that you are going for. You do not need to be a professional interior designer to pick good colors although using the services of one would not hurt. Different shades and hues all give different impressions. Neutral colors such as cream and ivory provide an illusion of bigger spaces and thus suitable for smaller bathrooms. The two colors also easily blend with most standard bathroom tiling and bathroom decor themes.
Replacing existing faucets and hardware such as cabinets and sinks works well for bathroom renovations as it gives the room an air of newness. A porcelain sink with stainless steel, brass or pewter faucets and handles will give your bathroom a more modern appearance. But note that as you embark on such replacement, you must pay attention to electrical fixtures that pass close to or through such fixtures (such as if the fixture is electricity powered). To be on the safe side, turn off all electric power to the bathroom before beginning any work on the bathroom.
Similar to painting, bathroom tiling is considered an element of bathroom renovations that can result in a dramatic change in how your bathroom looks. Tiles come in an array of colors, sizes and designs. Tiling the bathroom using small-sized tiles can give the room a more spacious feeling. Contrasting colors on the walls such as red, white and black give your bathroom a rich liveliness. Black and white tiles arranged in a checkerboard format would provide a similar effect. Bathroom tiling not only looks appealing but is also easy to maintain and clean. If you opt not to go for a floor to ceiling approach to bathroom tiling, make sure your bathroom tiles complement the paint color you settle on.
The ideas you can choose from when it comes to bathroom tiling and bathroom renovations are continuously changing such that there is an emerging trend fast gaining popularity when it comes to bathroom renovations – that is the installation of heated floors. The floors are heated through the bathroom tiling which in effect keeps the room cozy and difficult to leave!
Bathroom accessories can be used to bring out your own or your family’s personality in the room. Mirrors are a must have in a bathroom. When undertaking bathroom renovations you should consider putting a large mirror above the sink on one side of the wall. This can be particularly useful for smaller bathrooms as it makes the room appear much more spacious.
