A bathroom transformation can either be very exciting or a complete nightmare. It all depends on the type of person you are and what you expect the end result to be. If it’s your dream bathroom then a bathroom transformation can be quite fun because you’ll get to design and purchase the new pieces of furniture, paint the walls, get the shower in place and so much more. Bathroom transformation doesn’t have to be a nightmare if you know what you’re doing. There are some simple tips and ideas that can help make the bathroom transformation process easier and faster for you.
First of all, don’t be afraid to walk around until you find the right combination. Take a look at pictures of bathrooms in magazines, online, and from home renovation models. You want to look at all your options and choose the one that appeals to you the most. While you’re out looking, note down the colors and designs that pop into your head when you browse through magazines and catalogs. Also note down the things that you don’t like about each bathroom in addition to the colors and designs that you love.
Once you’ve done this, it’s time to figure out what you want for the walls and ceiling of your bathroom. When you lay out your plans, realize that ceilings and floors are usually the least remodeled aspect of any bathroom. They can be the most expensive room to renovate, but they are also one of the rooms that you spend the most time in. Therefore it’s important that you get it right!
To change up the decor, you should think about adding mirrors. Mirrors add dimension and a sense of depth in a bathroom, making it feel bigger than it actually is. Also remember that bathrooms are often used as a place to hide, so try and use colors and themes that will keep your guests distracted. You don’t want them paying any attention to you while you’re in the bathroom!
To complete the bathroom look, throw in a fresh coat of paint. It doesn’t have to be something that you’re particularly fond of; it can be any color or pattern that will make the room look bright and fresh. Painting your bathroom is also a great way to update your fixtures, faucets, and other hardware. By updating these small things, you make the bathroom look bigger.
Finally, remember that your bathroom isn’t just a place to take a bath, you can turn it into a nice, cozy study area as well. Purchase a desk and chair for your study or make sure you have a good hutch for it. If you have a lot of books or magazines, consider taking some of them along with you when you remodel your bathroom. A home office might seem like a luxury for the rich, and famous, but it’s actually a lot more affordable than you might think. You can pick up a fairly cheap desk or even a chair for about $100.
