Your bathroom may be a small-sized room, but it gets a lot of use from you and your household, which can make it in need of a renovation to restore its look. Here are some recommendations to help you as you plan for an upcoming bathroom remodel so you can get the most out of the space with a great look.
Choose the Bathroom Components
When you are looking to remodel your bathroom or install a new bathroom in your home, the components you choose to add to the space will make a big difference in your usage of the space and your home's value. If, for example, you install a half bathroom or powder room, you will only get a toilet and a sink, but without the shower or tub. However, if you want a full bathroom, plan to install and make sure there is room for the shower, tub, sink, and toilet to all fit comfortably and with a good flow.
If you are not sure of the colors to add to your bathroom, it is best to go with a neutral color or colors throughout the space to make it easier to change up your color decor. For example, you can add towels, wall art, rugs, and a shower curtain of different colors and designs to put color in the space. If you want to update the bathroom with colors that look clean, stay away from ivory in your bathtub, shower, toilet, or sink. These colors on your bathroom fixtures can make them look dirty, stained, or yellowing with age. So, look at white fixtures, with the optional black or grey countertop or sink.
Select the Fixtures
The bathroom fixtures you choose are also important as the style you choose. Inside the shower, look at installing a seamless shower insert or tiled walls in addition to a porcelain or acrylic tub. You can choose the showerhead to be fixed or a hand shower, in addition to a rain shower, or multiple sprayer heads to help with showering.
You can choose your fixtures to be all made of the same finish, but it is not necessary. Use the same finish in your faucets, lighting, towel bars, and doorknobs, to bring your bathroom look together, but if you want to mix polished chrome with brushed nickel or even brass, you can do so.
Make sure you choose a fixture finish that will be easy for you to maintain and keep it looking great, but one that you also will not get tired of. Look at the maintenance requirements of your fixture's finish, and don't, for example, get a shiny finish on your faucet and shower fixtures, only to realize you have to polish them daily.
