Planning to remodel your bathroom but not sure where to start? Bathroom remodelling and renovations can seem tricky, but taking the time to do it right will help increase the value of your property while ensuring that you fall back in love with your bathroom.
Here are some small bathroom decorating ideas:
Have a plan
Before you get started, it’s important to work out what you actually want. First, consider your budget. Then, it may be worth working with an architect or designer to understand how you can get the most out of your space. A plumber will also be able to let you know whether you can make certain things happen, or if the costs involved with swapping the bathtub and the toilet will be out of reach.
Choose your bath
Speaking of bathtubs, we all know that they’re a favourite for many people. Whether you love soaking with a glass of wine for hours or you just want to make it easier to get the kids clean, updating or installing a new bathtub is the way to go. Bathtubs can make a huge difference to both the look and usability of your bathroom, so check out some freestanding bathtubs or clawfoot bathtubs for something modern or different.
Know when to splurge
A little-known secret about bathrooms? Since they’re usually one of the smaller spaces in your home, it can make sense to splurge a little here. Spending more on a few higher-end finishes and materials can be a wise use of money and a good investment that will make it seem more luxurious. So before you commit to only using the most affordable, basic materials, see what you can incorporate within your budget- particularly if you’re considering selling the property in the future.
Keep it dry
Mildew and mold have ruined many a beautiful bathroom. If you’re hoping to keep these two party poopers away for good, you’ll need to know how to tackle moisture. The best idea is to take a multifaceted approach- install a fan with vents to the outside, along with a window that you can open during the warmer months.
Update your lighting
The last thing you need is a brand new bathroom with outdated light fixtures. Lighting should be a key part of your plan so you’ll know if you need to talk to an electrician or if you need to run a new cable. If you’re not sure how you want to incorporate light into your bathroom, “the more the better” is a good rule to live by. Lots of light will give a more luxurious feel and make the room seem bigger.
