I also like to think of myself as a professional amateur interior designer and furniture expert. I’m quite handy around the house, as it turns out.
Bathrooms need light; and selecting the right lighting fixtures, or creating a natural source of light are your best options. Specially designed windows and customized skylights that automatically open and close, can also give your bathroom a direct source of fresh air, and the sun’s rays during the daytime; instead of using fluorescent lighting that almost has an hypnotic effect.
This is one of the cheapest and quickest ways to revamp your bathroom. If the current shades of your bathroom walls and door lack charm or aren’t welcoming, spruce the room up a bit with a splash of new color. Transform your bathroom into an utterly relaxing realm by using green and neutral tones, soft pastel colors, or shades of blue. To create a livelier mood, go with pink, red, orange, yellow and other bright shades. And don’t be afraid to be bold and different, some contrasting color combinations can render a fascinating, dramatic look if done right.
Corner bathtubs are specifically designed to fit in a corner. This gets them out of the way and utilizes space that might otherwise be wasted. Corner bathtubs range in size from very small tubs to large bathtubs that are roomy enough for two adults. Some have built-in seats and are adorned along the edge with raised motifs, and you can also get a corner jetted tub and corner soaking tubs.
Remember: you don’t have to include all of these items in your bathroom remodel, unless you’re building a whole new bathroom from scratch. You always have the option to add some pieces-sink, toilet and lighting fixtures-after you’ve done the bigger projects to spread out costs. Also consider that some of these projects-bathtub installation, shower installation or cabinet installation-have smaller, cheaper alternatives. For example, you can refinish cabinets to make them look brand new and flow with the new bathroom for less money. There is also the option of replacing faucets and other plumbing fixtures, which costs less than replacing bathtubs and showers.
