How To Elevate The Look Of Your Bathroom
[This is a sponsored post but all opinions are my own!]
Home might be a condominium in Midtown, an Alpharetta mansion, a Craftsman-style house in Decatur, or any variation in between. No matter where you rest your head each night, staying inside should not be dull. It is all about creating a comfortable environment for relaxation and enjoyment. Every room in the house needs to have touches of the owner’s personal style and elements to reflect their personality. Consider each room to be a destination, unique in and of itself. Some spaces are designed to be an oasis for relaxation where other rooms are a focal point for gathering with family and friends. One of the most overlooked rooms in a home is the bathroom.
Bathrooms are usually compact spaces which serve a well-understood purpose. However, they should not be neglected when it comes to decorating and renovations. Consider the amount of time you spend in your bathroom each day – doing your hair and makeup, showering, or just reading a book while you relax in the tub. If you are looking to create the home of your dreams, start small in a bathroom and work your way to the larger projects.
When you are redesigning a bathroom, there is a lot to consider like tiles, countertops, cabinetry, wall coverings or paint color, shower and tub fixtures, molding, sinks, and toilets – the list goes on. You do not need to gut a bathroom to renovate it. In fact, you do not need to take things down to the studs, can make some simple changes and have a huge impact.
Give Your Cabinets a Face-lift
Modify the look of a bathroom instantly by painting your existing cabinets. You might go from a natural wood look to a more contemporary dark gray or black or go in the opposite direction and lighten the cabinets by giving them a French or farmhouse style. If you plan on painting yourself, test potential paint colors for a week by taping the swatches to the front of your cabinet doors. Then observe the colors during different day parts – morning, noon, and night – to see how they change throughout the day. When you decide to paint the cabinets, first remove all the hardware and doors so you can properly sand and prime everything before you begin the painting process.
A coat of paint can make a world of difference.
Freshen up the Walls
Just like a fresh coat of paint can do wonders for cabinets, it can also completely transform your walls. Accent walls, wallpaper, textured painting, and custom designed installments are eye-popping ways to add a design element to a small space. However, making a significant change is not always necessary. You may want to keep the same color on your walls but just repaint them, experts say you need to repaint walls every 4-7 years to keep them fresh.
Replace Old Fixtures
Fixtures in a bathroom are like a great pair of shoes; they tie everything together. If you have old, outdated accessories why not replace them? For example, toss those old copper fixtures for a more contemporary brushed nickel. Modernize your hot and cold water handles with a sleek and minimal faucet. From a cost perspective, there are many fixture options on the market; you can stay within a tight budget or choose more high-end options.
