Bathroom Remodeling? Consider These Seven Ideas

Posted on Thu, Oct 29, 2015

Bathroom RemodelingWhen it comes to adding value to a home, kitchen remodeling and bathroom remodeling are often the first two options that come to mind. And for good reason too: bathroom and kitchen upgrades typically offer the greatest return on your investment. Fortunately, bathroom remodels can be a relatively simple undertaking; often, you can make changes without changing the basic layout of the room. Don't feel like you can't remodel your bathroom if you're not planning on putting your house on the market anytime soon either; upgrading your bathroom gives you the opportunity to make it more functional and personalized for your own enjoyment. Are you ready to get started? Consider the following bathroom remodeling ideas:

Update your sink.

Your sink and cabinets are focal points of the bathroom, so they should be aesthetically pleasing and functional. Vanity cabinets, available at many home improvement stores, are an excellent alternative to outdated bathroom cabinets. They're made from a variety of materials and feature plenty of color and design options. Additionally, you can choose from single or double sink vanities. If you'd rather skip the vanity, another attractive option is the pedestal sink. Sleek and stylish, the addition of a pedestal sink will instantly make your bathroom look and feel more modern.

Give your toilet a makeover.

You don't have to replace your entire toilet to give it a little makeover; instead, simply replace the toilet seat. You'll be amazed by how such a simple change can make your toilet seem like new again.

Switch out your faucets.

When remodeling your bathroom, even the smallest details can make a big difference in the transformation process. So, toss out those old, boring faucets and welcome some sleek, chrome replacements in their place. Keep in mind, though, that your bathroom fixtures should match, so make sure to update all of them-- including the showerhead.

Do some tiling.

Whether you have old tile or no tile, doing some tiling can significantly change the appearance of your bathroom. You might choose to tile the floor, or you might go for the shower and walls too. Maybe you'll choose a patterned tile that reflects your personal style, or perhaps you'll go for a classic white tile. Either way, tiling (or re-tiling) your bathroom will give it an instant face-lift.

Tub to Shower Conversion.

Are you tired of looking at that old, outdated bathtub? Consider transforming it into a convenient shower instead. With a variety of glass and shower frame options available, your new shower will give your bathroom a clean and contemporary look. Not only will the shower be an attractive addition to your bathroom, it comes with some extra perks for added safety and functionality. These extras include a low threshold base, a slip resistant bottom, and folding seats.

Break out your paintbrush.

There's little that makes a room feel more open and welcoming than a fresh coat of paint. If you're feeling brave, go for a bold, fun color to liven up that old bathroom. Or, if you'd rather, stick with a timeless option, like tan or beige.

Add a personal touch.

You've finished remodeling your bathroom, but it still feels like something is missing. Now's the time to add your personal touch to your stylish new room. Display some of your favorite artwork on the empty wall. Hang bright and colorful towels on the towel rack. Toss your dirty clothes in a fun but functional hamper. If your bathroom features a window, you might spruce it up with some blinds or a window treatment.
