A bathroom remodel is a popular choice for homeowners, even more than kitchens. Bathrooms are smaller than kitchens, which makes the job much easier and quicker. This reduces the cost of flooring, paint, cabinets, countertops, and other costs. These tips will make your bathroom remodel look more appealing while still being efficient, cost-effective, and attractive:
To add more space, build niches and recesses
Built-ins like medicine cabinets and recessed soap dishes can be used to maximize the space in small bathrooms. Convert your ceiling light to a recessed one to make it flush. For extra storage, you can build into the walls.
Bathrooms require ventilation according to local codes. This can be in the form of either a window that is properly sized or an exhaust fan. Bathroom fans should be evaluated for their exhaust capacity, which is how much air they can move per minute. Bathroom fans can be too loud due to their small size.
For living color, add plants
It is not a luxury to have plants in your bathroom. In sterile bathrooms, plants can bring life and color. A floating shelf can be used to give your trailing plants a home.
Choose the right flooring
While solid wood floors can add character to bathrooms, they are not the best choice of flooring material for bathrooms. Choose bathroom flooring that can withstand daily bathroom use. The most popular bathroom flooring options are porcelain tile and luxury vinyl plank. Ask your general contractor what’s the best option for your bathroom remodel project.
Change the room size with color
A small bathroom will look larger if you keep your colors in the white- or-light spectrum. Dark colors can make the space feel smaller and more claustrophobic. White or light-colored fixtures are best (including the bathtub and toilet). Avoid painting the bathroom ceiling in any other color than white or off-white as it can shrink the space.
Bathroom lighting matters
Lighting is often very dimmed and concentrated in one place, namely from a ceiling fixture, in a room where people must visually inspect their hair and faces. Consider adding lighting to the bathroom mirror with sconces. Blinding light is not always desirable. Always consult with your contractor before adding any lights.
Get free-standing pieces
Many home decorators recommend one piece of furniture, such as a chair or a cupboard, as an element of design. You can conceal other useful elements like clothes hampers, or move the hamper to another area. You can use this decorative piece to store small items such as soaps or towels.
Add more hanging options
Hooks are a great way to increase bathroom surfaces without having to install a countertop. Hooks can be used to hang everything, from towels to clothes to bathrobes. Hooks can be placed on the back of doors, side by cabinets, or in unused areas of walls. Most bathroom remodel in Keller TX always add more hanging options for ease of access.
Add more mirrors in the bathroom
Mirrors in bathrooms are often thought of as a way to check makeup and hair. It is important to consider mirrors in bathrooms as design elements. They can be used to expand the space visually and provide light. A lot of homeowners prefer to have a second mirror above their bathroom sink.
Wainscotting for protection and beauty
The Wainscot beadboard serves two important functions. It creates an antique appearance and is easy to put in, so it can be used where it is appropriate. Beadboard protects the lower portion of the walls against the inevitable water splashes that can occur in bathrooms with a tub or shower.
