Sadly, the bathroom is a room that often goes forgotten during a remodelling project. Instead, people focus on living areas and outside spaces. This is a shame considering we spend so much of our time in the bathroom. It’s the place we go for a relaxing bath after a long day at work, for example. With this in mind, here are some wonderful bathroom remodelling ideas for your next project!
For many homeowners, they want to bring life to their bathroom and there’s no better way to do this than through patterned flooring. With a hexagonal pattern, for example, it adds character to the room and can actually make it look bigger. If you choose darker colours, you can hide the grime that normally builds in the room too. You can find creative tiling ideas over at Yeomans Bagno & Ceramiche, or search local remodeling blogs in your area. For flooring and bathroom ceramics, tile is easily one of the most affordable aspects of your bathroom to update.
Do you find yourself constantly battling with your partner for the mirror in the morning? Maybe the kids are always fighting to see themselves while brushing their teeth? In either case, you can alleviate problems by installing a second sink. Not only does a double vanity offer more storage space, but it also makes the room look bigger because the room is reflected back in two different mirrors.
While renovating the bathroom, it’s important to think about logistics and performance just as much as aesthetics. For instance, did you know that most standard drain plumbing is a maximum of 1 1/2 inches in diameter? For households with several family members, this just isn’t enough (you probably know this because it continually clogs!). By installing drains that are two inches in diameter instead, there’s very little difference in the appearance but it could prevent drainage issues in the future.
To Bathtub or Not to Bathtub?
Do you like to take a bath? In this fast-paced world, some people like to soak in a bath every so often. However, there’s also a group of people who don’t take baths and don’t even like the idea of them. If you’re in this latter category, you might question whether you actually need a tub in your remodelling project. The answer is no. Just because a bathtub is traditionally in a bathroom, you don’t need it taking up space if you’re not going to use it. There you go, you have permission to finally lose the tub.
Window in the Shower
For those without a window in the bathroom, you’ll know how difficult it is to ventilate. With improper ventilation in the bathroom, steamy showers cause black mould to appear over time. Therefore, you might want to consider a window in the shower. With this, steam and condensation leave the room immediately rather than settling onto surfaces and causing headaches.
For most people, the bathroom is the room with the least storage space even though we need to store all our products, medications, and more. If you’re constantly looking for somewhere to store bathroom items, consider built-in shelving in the bathroom. If you don’t need extra storage space, you could even bring life into the room with a plant in an arched niche.
Finally, there’s nothing better than getting in from a long day and settling down in the bath. The room is filled with candles, there’s gentle music in the background, and it’s hard not to fall asleep. One of the biggest problems with this idea is lighting; you either need to have the bright light on or sit in darkness. Therefore, a good idea is to introduce dimmer lighting instead.
