Make Your Bathroom Stand Out

Make Your Bathroom Stand Out

Remodeling your bathroom can be a great way to spruce up the interior of your house and boost your resell value by quite a bit. There are quite a few ways to go about it and there are tons of options available for anyone looking to bring a little more pizazz to their bathroom space.

Most of what you’ll be looking for can be found at a great Bed Bath Store and most of it can be quite inexpensive. This is great, especially if you’re looking to do the work yourself, since it will all be in one place and it will give you a good idea of what your new bathroom will look like before you’ve even installed anything.

When you’re starting on your bathroom, it’s important to work from the floor up to stay organized and keep the mess down a little. Upgrading your bathroom floor to a new modern tile style will instantly give your space a nice modern feel to it and help improve the overall feel of it with a new clean look. Greys, beiges, and charcoals are great colors for new bathroom floors as they pretty much work with any theme and will enhance the look without taking away from the overall scheme.

Bathrooms are typically void of most natural light by nature, but you can easily fix this with some new windows. When you contact a contractor, tell them you’re looking for clerestory windows as these are windows that sit high on the wall. They allow quite a bit of light to filter into the room without letting others see in and they can really open up an otherwise small space and since most bathrooms don’t have these kinds of amenities, it will definitely boost the value.

Pay attention to the hardware. If you really want to make your bathroom sparkle, you’ll want to replace the faucets, showerhead, cabinet handles, and the door handles. These seem like small details but they do wonders for making the place look fresh and it’s a well known trick that many people use to cheaply enhance the look of any area of the house. Opt for chrome if possible as it goes with pretty much any décor and the shiny appeal to it will definitely give the bathroom a clean look.

You can never go wrong with painting any room when it comes to remodeling or redesigning. Most contractors can have this done in no time and it’s usually not too expensive. The color you’ll pick is important however because the nature of a bathroom typically lends itself to being small and slightly dark. Most times you’ll want to opt for a warmer color to enhance the space without leaving it feeling cramped. Beiges and creams work well in bathrooms for just this reason.

If you’re redoing your cabinetry, try to find wooden components that match your color scheme. Wooden cabinets in bathrooms are extremely popular and they’ll not only give the entire room a great luxurious feel to it, but it will definitely get you some well deserved attention.

A bathroom is just as important as the rest of the house and it can be improved quite easily with just a few steps. There are a lot of great ways to go about it and no matter your style or preferences, you should definitely be able to find something that will work for you.

How can you know if a product is sustainable?

In terms of items that have been recycled or reclaimed, it’s obvious that these are from a sustainable source. However, with new products – like wood – you need to check that they have been produced in an eco-conscious way.

In the UK, you should look for the mark of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The wood from an FSC-accredited forest has been felled sustainably, while the land on which it is grown is managed properly.

You can also check the lifecycle assessment of the products which you’re considering using in your self-build project. This not only gives you an indication of the material’s eco credentials, but also provides an idea of how it should perform in terms of energy release throughout its lifetime.
