From Grimy to Gorgeous: Five Small Bathroom Remodel Ideas
It’s no secret that we all need to use the bathroom. It’s all completely natural and there’s nothing wrong with that. For this reason, you could easily make the case that the bathroom is the most important room in your home. In any case, we believe it gives all the more reason to take pride in your bathroom and make it as beautiful and welcoming as you can. If you’re looking for a few ideas to remodel your bathroom and give it a fresh, new look, you’re in the right place. Let us know which one is your favorite!
Go from a shower curtain to a shower door.
Shower curtains need to be changed every few months to prevent mold from forming or other forms of wear and tear. This can be fun, giving you an opportunity to bring in a funky new pattern every once in a while, but it can be a hassle to keep up with. Investing in a glass shower door will turn your regular bathroom into a hotel-esque spa. Glass doors are also easier to keep clean and don’t need replacing (unless you break them, of course).
Replace or repair your shower area.
That’s right: the sink. Did you know that sinks come in all kinds of cool designs? They can have swirls or patterns printed in them, and different kinds of faucets can give a whole different feel to the entire thing. However, aside from the waterworks themselves, the sink area is where most people store a lot of their hygiene products and other personal belongings. Look into options with lots of drawers and storage place, and you’ll feel a lot better in your bathroom. If you share a bathroom, it is almost definitely a good idea to invest in a double-sink countertop system so you each can have your own space.
Redo your shower or bathroom walls.
Opt for a soft, light color paint, with white trim and a white ceiling to make the room feel spacious. Hang up some classy decorations – we’d suggest avoiding family photos (but to each their own) and sticking with a cute theme, like nautical or floral décor. You could also install some metal shelving for additional storage and to help the walls feel less empty.
Update your lighting and fan systems.
A lot of people tend to take their showers at night, so don’t worry too much about your bathroom not getting enough natural light. As long as there is a light over the sink/mirror station and one to light up the bathroom as a whole, you’re all set. However, it might take a little more work, but we highly suggest installing a fan and a heater system if you don’t already have one. The fan will help get the steam out of the room so you don’t feel like you’re in a sauna (unless you’re into that!), and the heater is helpful in cold weather. Nobody likes leaving the warm embrace of a shower for the icy tundra of the outside world. Drying off and washing up in a warm room is much nicer.
