When it comes to being a parent and managing a home, there are certain rooms in the home that can often be forgotten about, or perhaps seem a little low on the priority list. Your bedroom, for one. Choosing to focus on kids bedrooms instead and your bathroom. Afterall, with it being one of the most used rooms in the house you may feel that the investment might not be worth it, plus the opinion is that a complete bathroom remodel can be pricey. However, there are things you can do and change, whether that is completely or just in small areas, that can make a big difference to your bathroom. Perhap seven enticing you into it to relax every once in awhile when you just want some peace. Hot bath anyone? So I thought I would share with you some of the things you could consider to help you create the perfect bathroom.
What do you want from your bathroom?
One of the first things to figure out would be what you want from your bathroom. Do you want the bathroom to be functional, or does it need to be in terms of how many people need to use it? Would you like it top have a sort of serene and spa like feel to it, so you can relax and unwind after a busy day? Or maybe you just want to change the layout so it can be used more easily. Knowing what you want to achieve first will help you create the perfect bathroom for you.
Think about a complete remodel
One of the biggest changes you could make would be to completely renovate and replace the current bathroom suite. That might require the biggest budget but it will give you the biggest change. When it comes to bathroom remodeling it is important to remember that you may need the help of experts to do do all the fixtures and fittings. This helps avoid any disasters with water, now or in the future. Changing the bathroom enables you to consider a different layout, or try alternative fixtures like separate bath and shower or basin options.
Make small changes to different areas
Maybe a whole remodel is just not in the budget right now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make significant changes to your bathroom. You could consider changing things like the faucets, or installing a new basin with storage, for example. This can really change the look, create more space in your bathroom, or simply give you a new design theme to work with in other areas of the bathroom.
Could you make your bathroom energy efficient?
Maybe you like the idea of having a n energy efficient bathroom, and while it can be considered as one of the least places you can make a difference, there are still ways you can save water and make it eco-friendly. Auto faucets which only dispel water when they sense something is there is an excellent way to avoid waste of water when washing hands or cleaning teeth. You could also look at slow flowing showers and toilets as well. Thankfully there is much more information online to help you achieve an eco-friendly bathroom.
What about a theme?
Maybe the smaller changes are the ones you are most excited about, and I don’t blame you. You could consider something like a colour theme, and this can be incorporated in different ways. From the colours of the walls to the accessories you display, a colour change can really make a difference.
Change the flooring or the walls for a statement
There are other ways you can make a big statement in your bathroom, and that includes changing a big surface area like the walls or the floor. You could paint the walls in your chosen colour, or use tiling to create a completely different effect. Many people choose tiles, or perhaps tile up half way so that you can get the best of both worlds. Flooring could also be tiled, or you could consider a water resistant wooden style laminate. It would all depend on the budget that you have.
Think about the lighting
Finally, think about the lighting in the bathroom. Ordinarily this is a small space in your home, so getting a lot of natural light in might prove difficult. A new light fitting or even having spot lights fitted could make the world of difference and brighten up the space.
I hope that this has given you some inspiration on how you can create the perfect bathroom.
