Change is one of the scariest things you can attempt but when the change comes with benefits, it is worth the risk. Have you ever considered refurbishing the way your bathroom looks? The truth is that, most old home bathrooms tend to have a lot of pending repairs and items that need fixing. Is this the case with your bathroom? Does it still look like it belongs in the 60′s instead of this generation?
If you answer yes to these questions, then your bathroom needs to be revamped. An outdated bathroom is one of the worst rooms to neglect in your home. You do not want to find this out the hard way when you have guests over, only to have a leaking bathroom for them to use. With very little planning, you may find that you can make so many changes to your bathroom and have it looking beautiful and modern.
How to fix up your bathroom
If you are going to live in your home, take time to make it worth staying in. Do not get comfortable in your old broken down bathroom. Take time to turn the bath area into an attractive modern bathroom that you will not only enjoy but one that will reflect who you are.
You can give your bathroom a more ‘spa’ feel to it by simple approaches like replacing its colors and accessories. Changing its design will also help just as much as using up-to-date objects and equipment. You can choose between wide varieties of different themed bathrooms with different designs that will make a statement every time you get visitors in your home.
Any makeover needs some planning and strategic ideas. If you start making your bathroom without a plan, you will overlook a lot. Below are some of the main areas that I have focused on that will help you get a few tips on how to make your bathroom look spacious and be soothing with a great organic feel to it. You will need to focus on the following:
Every bathroom area needs ample lighting. Natural light is great when creating the perfect ambience in the room, as well as maintaining the condition of your bathroom equipment. Make sure the windows are accessible and let in as much light and air into the room to avoid dampness. Make sure the glass of your windows are of a high quality too.
You could replace your old archway if you have one with a glass that is customized so that it encloses the archway and makes the room have a little more air as well as make it feel spacious. More often than not, a bathroom will only have one window so having glass will reflect more light into the room. The best way would be to use glass partitions between the showers or tub if your bathroom has both.
When it comes to the amount of light, window drapes are also equally important. When you are choosing curtains or drapes, always consider the material. Some fabric will prevent lighting from outside coming into the room. Too many designs on your fabric also will tend to block out the light. A nice simple swath is better when you are choosing fabric. The design will also enhance the theme of the room. Simplicity is the best way to go here.
Make sure that you coordinate the kind of tiles that you put on your floor with the general theme that you want to have in your bathroom. If you do, you will be creating the mood that you intend to have in your bathroom. Most people prefer to have silent or neutral colors in the shower. Whatever color you select, make sure you do not go overboard. The best environment to create in your shower is a peaceful and calming one, so that you feel relaxed in it.
- Pattern and designs
Play around with your walls. If you want to have a makeover in your room, add customized details that will change its previous look. You will also be able to make the design stand out more with wall hangings and other designs that may mimic your tile patterns, or patterns in other parts of your home. Be creative as well as put your originality and ideas into it.
You do not need to rob a bank trying to revamp your old bathroom. Choose durable items and logical ideas you can apply and then make them work. Before you know it, you will have a simple and stylish bathroom!
