What happens when you think about a bathroom remodeling project, but you don’t quite have that vision that inspires a beautiful new space? More often than not, you’ll settle for another boring bathroom that you’ll be sick of soon enough.
No matter your style or your budget, you can create a bathroom that you can be proud of with a little creativity and thought. To get you started, here are some bathroom remodeling ideas that will get you the results you want.
Energy Efficiency and Looks Don’t Have to Clash
When most people think of installing energy-saving fixtures in their bathrooms, it doesn’t conjure up images of a stunning interior, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Modern efficient appliances can save you money while retaining the sleek look you want in a bathroom. LED lighting is brighter, but can be used in a creative way while saving energy.
Keep It Simple…
Want a completely new look for your bathroom? You might be tempted to strip it completely and start fresh, which can be costly. Sometimes a simple change like a new shower, new cabinets, or a new countertop can completely change the look of a room.
…Or Go Bold
If you truly want to see a transformation come from a bathroom renovation, however, go all in. Today’s trends signal a shift towards bold colors or patterns on the walls, the ceiling, or the floor, but not all of them.
Metallic tiles are in fashion today, but if the rest of your home doesn’t fit a contemporary style, don’t push it to stay current.
Open Up the Room
Is your bathroom feeling a bit small? Maybe you can’t knock out a wall to enlarge it but there are ways to make it feel larger: add a larger mirror, install a stand-up shower that’s open to the room with glass doors and walls to make it appear that the shower isn’t taking up valuable space.
A recent development in bathroom design is the realization that people tend to like their bathrooms better when there are lighter and brighter colors in it. Pick a lighter tile or paint color and see the results!
