Whether you’re looking for a style step-up or total overhaul, we’re going to share some essential tips to make your bathroom remodelling project a success. From the colour and style of tiles to the size of your vanity, every little detail counts to refresh your bathroom look. Here is a list of important details to focus on when attempting your bathroom renovation.
Consider the various styles of bathroom lighting available
Finding the right lighting for your bath can be a challenge. The vanity, tub area and shower all require different lighting choices, but the bathroom’s overall design still needs to feel stylish and cohesive. You can opt for side-mounted sconces to be placed on either side of a mirror or consider combinations of ambient light in the form of chandeliers, pendants or flush mounts. Note that pendants can also function as ambient or accent lighting if necessary. And, keep your lighting in the same finish family to maintain unity in the bathroom’s overall design.
Finding the right bathroom tile
The right tiles can elevate the whole décor of your bath area. Whether you apply it to the floors, the walls, or every surface in sight, the tile you choose can establish the mood for one of the most frequented rooms in the house. It is important to establish a specific budget to tiles and consider factors like shapes, sizes, styles and prices. Once your budget has been set, you’ll have a variety of options to choose from, including ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone. We recommend homeowners to stick with lighter tile colours so that they can add pops of colour with accessories like towels and knobs.
Opt for quality bathroom fittings
Don’t neglect the quality of your bathroom fittings for any type of remodelling project. Small changes can have a big impact and that’s why the right fitting add a more sophisticated touch to a bathroom. From the sink and faucet to the shower bath and toilet spray gun, you have to choose a style that matches your tiles and bathroom accessories. And, don’t be afraid to invest a little more on the bath or basin because you will be living with it for a long time.
Other important bathroom accessories
The nice thing about decorating a bathroom is that decor items not only add beauty and style, but also add functionality to the space. We’re talking about anything from soap jars to towel racks and furniture. Given the nature of this particular room and its function, these accessories must be, first of all, functional as there’s usually not much room for purely decorative objects.
