Bathroom Renovation Plans and Tips for Your Home

You dream about a bathroom that’s high on comfort and personal style, but you also want materials, fixtures, and amenities with lasting value. Wake up! You can have both. Seemingly standard cupboards with smart, unique or high-tech elements and accessories behind their doors can make a world of difference when it comes to making a bathroom more organized and user-friendly.

  1. The fresh coat of paint should be standard in any updating you do, and this is one place that’s no exception. The small size that can be changed with a small investment in a can of paint can be a dramatic change. Why not be brave and try a new color…Pastels are in again.
  2. Spend a bit of time and de-clutter your bathroom. Try to see it as a stranger would. See what you will be able to move out of sight without making too much bother to your day-to-day grooming routine. Put the small grooming particulars or cosmetics in containers or attractive baskets to streamline your interior decoration. Use containers that are ornamental and colorful and go with the color scheme.
  3. Get some extra storage. The vacated space over the toilet is simply wasted. Buy an inexpensive over the john unit or small wall cabinet to make use of the space and keep bath supplies hidden. Or get a space saver configured to sit on the floor and fit above the toilet. In a small bathroom, or a couple of extra bucks will be well spent on installing another cabinet with doors to obscure clutter. For a little lavishness get one with opaque glass which is quite appealing, but still holds a multitude of clutter.
  4. Why not put in a new vanity tap in a soft or satin finish that will give a modern look to your tired old vanity.
  5. You should consider some new lighting fixtures when planning a bathroom renovation. Effective lighting is basic in a grooming spot and will lighten up your entire bath area. A new style can bring the right touch to your decor.
  6. Paint: A fresh coat of paint can instantly freshen up even the most outdated bathrooms.
  7. Fixtures: Update light fixtures, sink faucets, towel racks, and drawer knobs. Look online or visit antique stores to find unique and inexpensive fixtures.
  8. Accessories: Buy a new shower curtain, decorative towels, or a picture to add an element of decor and style to your new bathroom. For those who are ready to go all-out on a bathroom remodel, consider hiring a professional. Your bathroom involves plumbing and electricity, two things can go very wrong if you do not know what you are doing and can ultimately end up costing you more to fix your mistakes. Additionally, the bathroom is a very common room to find water damage and mold, which may require a larger scope of repair. But spending the money on a professional doesn’t mean you can’t save money in other areas of your renovation, here are some money saving tips for a complete bathroom overhaul:
  9. Shop online: Shop online not only for great deals on towels and fixtures but also for great prices on large purchases such as a new toilette.
  10. Consider the amount of tile you use: Tile is expensive, so think about the amount of time and also the type of tile you want to use. Instead of using expensive decorative tile all over your bathroom, choose a focal point in either the shower or the vanity backsplash to create an impact without overspending.
  11. Go green: Save money even after your bathroom remodels is complete by choosing energy efficient plumbing fixtures. Look into high-efficiency water saving toilets, low-flow shower heads, and low-flow faucets to conserve water and save you money.
