In these stressful times, people are caring more and more about their bathrooms. Bathroom remodeling projects are on every homeowner’s mind. There is nothing quite like coming home after a hard day at work, pouring yourself something smooth and cold to drink, and adjourning to your bathroom sanctuary to enjoy the fruits of your recent bathroom remodeling project. If you haven’t gotten around to gutting and remodeling your dated bathroom, it’s time to start thinking about your options. Bathroom remodeling has never been easier.
The first thing you want to look at to kickoff your bathroom remodeling project is your vanity since it is the centerpiece of the bathroom. The right vanity will change everything, from functionality to aesthetics, and it will make bathroom remodeling a breeze.
If you are tight on space and have a pedestal sink with exposed plumbing, consider fashioning a sink skirt out of some fabric that goes along with your color scheme. Not only will this easy-to-sew skirt hide those unsightly plumbing fixtures, but it will also create additional storage space, which is always good when it comes to bathroom remodeling.
If space is not an issue, then you probably want to update that prehistoric vanity for something more sleek and modern. This means that porcelain sinks need to go, especially if you are taking the resale value of your home into consideration. Why waste your time with a halfway complete bathroom remodeling project? Get rid of that dated porcelain sink in favor of a cost-effective freestanding vessel sink. This small upgrade will not only change the appearance of your bathroom, it will also add comfort and luxury to your sanctuary.
Please do not think that your big family is an excuse for avoiding your much-needed bathroom remodeling project. Simply upgrade to a double vanity, one that will give you twice the cabinet space and two freestanding vessel sinks. This way your bevy of kids can brush their teeth at the same time rather than complain about the wait.
Another easy thing to consider when tackling your bathroom remodeling project is the walls. Look around your bathroom. Do you see wallpaper? Do you see moldy spots shabbily covered with dull paint that very well may contain lead it’s so old? Scrape off that wallpaper, scratch away that paint, and consider faux wall treatment for your bathroom remodeling.
If time is an issue, consider buying a Venetian plaster kit. This way you can bypass the application of a base coat and get the same faux look in one go. Giving your walls a touch-up is a great way to solve the problem of bathroom remodeling without sacrificing too much of your bankroll.
Vanities and walls out of the way, yet another easy upgrade to think about for your bathroom remodeling is lighting. Adding a window or skylight would be ideal, but if such upgrades are not in your budget, consider enhancing the light fixtures in your shower. These lights should be bright enough to easily see what you are shaving or shampooing. No bathroom remodeling project is complete without proper lighting. Alongside your mirror you could add vertical wall sconces with fluorescent bulbs to brighten your face when applying cosmetics and sipping on your smooth and cold drink.
