Bring Your Bathrooms Into The 21st Century
The bathroom is arguably one of the hardest-working rooms in the house. Many people think of their home’s bathrooms in terms of function rather than fashion. However, there is no reason your bathroom can’t have the best of both functionality and style. If you’re considering a bathroom update or renovation, read on for some great bathroom improvement options.
- Look down. Are your bathroom floors boring, bland, and unexciting? Since the bathroom is typically one of the smaller rooms in a home, this can be a great opportunity to splurge on some really great flooring. Pamper yourself with a luxurious flooring finish, or consider adding a unique design to your bathroom floors. Some great options include a mosaic to complement your preferred color scheme. You can also add interest to bathroom floors with uniquely shaped tile, such as diamond, oval, or trapezoid.
- See the light. Does the lighting in your bathroom suggest elegance and sophistication, or is it more reminiscent of a sad Vegas dressing room? Lighting choices can make or break a room, and the bathroom is no exception to this rule. A well lit bathroom is a must have. Apart from practical considerations (It’s nice to be able to actually see when shaving or applying one’s makeup.), light can contribute as much to a design as paint choice and overall color scheme. Consider installing lighting that operates on a dimmer switch and your bathroom can be bright and lively or soft and relaxed with the flick of a switch.
- Bring the outside in. Turn your bathroom into a soothing spa-like retreat by using natural materials and textures in your design. Wood, natural stone, and other touchable surfaces are a delight to the senses. Consider using wood-like tile, granite, marble, limestone, or travertine to add a natural feel to your bathroom. Or consider selecting a textured natural stone to mimic the material in its natural state.
