No matter how well-designed or decorated your home is, there will come a time where your house will need a little pick-me-up. Before jumping headfirst into a kitchen, basement or bedroom, it might be best to test out a bathroom or two to see if you’re ready to fully remodel your home. Not only will this add value to your home, but it will also give your home the fresh look and feel you’ve been craving.
What’s even better is that you don’t have to go overboard — there are very simple ways that you can give your bathroom a makeover without redoing the whole thing. Below we’ll look at some ways you can liven up your bathroom with the help of an experienced bathroom contractor and a little imagination.
Sometimes all you need is some fresh flooring to give your bathroom the tune-up that it deserves. Some people prefer a nice stone, while others opt for laminate flooring or engineered wood. You’ll want to avoid hardwood and carpet, as the two materials are susceptible to water and will easily get destroyed from a large amount of moisture.
Add Some Glass
Nothing makes your bathroom take on a new look more than implementing glass around your bath or shower. Creating a walk-in shower with a glass enclosure could give your bathroom the elegant boost it needs, or you could eliminate the shower curtain and add a glass enclosure in its place.
Trim carpentry may seem like a small change, but it can have a large effect on your bathroom. Having new molding installed by an experienced trim contractor can give the room a much-needed pop by freshening up the room’s trim around windows, doors and flooring.
Tile, Tile, Tile
Tile is the ultimate bathroom material. It can be placed nearly anywhere in the room, including on walls, on the floor and as an accent around important fixtures. The beautiful thing about tile — other than its looks — is that there are so many options. There’s subway tile, fish scale tile, mosaic tile and so many other choices. From tile materials to colors and finishes, you’ll never be short on options when considering tile for your bathroom.
Add An Accent Wall
Want something pretty simple that will give your bathroom a new look? Consider adding an accent wall. An accent wall is one that stands out from others in the room through a different color paint, wallpaper, tile or even artwork. It’s a simple way to freshen up any room in a home, and your bathroom will thank you for it.
Home improvement doesn’t have to begin with an all or nothing investment that requires you to overhaul your whole home. In fact, it’s often better to start small and get a sense of direction of where you want to go with your home.
