Bathroom Remodeling – It Doesn’t Have to Be Painful
Need to remodel you bathroom, but not too sure where to start? Rest assured that the only limits there are are those of your imagination. Keep the basic existing structures in mind and remodel around them. With a bit of imagination and hopefully not too much money, you can realize your dream.
If you wish to make your bathroom unique, pick out one main item and build your bathroom around it. Maybe you have an old cast iron tub or an antique cabinet you found on TwicetheMeasure or a flea market. Use these items to inspire you.
Keep in mind that ultimately you want to provide user comfort for obvious reasons. If you have more than one bathroom you may consider remodeling the master bathroom as it is the one receiving the most traffic. This is also the one you will be using the most, so feel free to add personal touches.
Be creative in use of tiling. A combination of tiling and a fresh coat of paint can do wonders to an aging bathroom. Pick a theme and go crazy with it. Think of a beach scene or perhaps a festive dolphin scene. Again, you are only as limited as your imagination- feel free to embellish. Remember a bathroom is like any other room in your house, hang some pictures.
If your bathroom is large enough, consider adding some small furniture. A plush chair or a comfy bench can change the whole dynamics of a room. From there add some matching towels and curtains.
Most home improvement stores offer custom paint matching. Use these services. If you have a favorite color or even a favorite sweater, they can match it. Try nice subdued colors like blues and greens. Find a nice relaxing color so you can enjoy the time you spend there.
Add a magazine rack for reading enjoyment. You would be surprised how many people appreciate a good read. Whatever your passions are express them in your bathroom. If you collect butterflies, for example, what better place to display them?
In conclusion, bathroom redecorating should not be a scary situation. It should be a fun experience and does not have to be a costly one. Go to your local home improvement center and ask plenty of questions- that is what they are there for. Most stores offer classes on all kinds of home projects, from tile installation to putting up wall paper. The money you save doing it yourself will go a long way in redecorating.
