Remodeling The Bathroom

Spread the love

We all like a pretty bathroom, but most of us get a predesigned bathroom which has already been fit up with ugly tiles, fittings and fixtures and can do very little about it. Here are a few tips which may help you jazz up your bathrooms at home.

Re-fitting fixtures

This, would be the most expensive component to remodeling the bathroom, especially as the fixtures and fittings themselves are very expensive on their own. Unless they are falling apart and cannot be used at all, it is best to maintain the same fixtures and fittings such as the water closet and sink. However, if unbearable, you can always cover it up in the shape of a box which could run the length of the bathroom, connecting the sink and shower areas. This step formation will add an interesting touch and fluidity to the bathroom.

All Materials

Materials have specific functions in the bathroom. They need to be non-slip and needs to be easily cleaned. Thus, the most commonly used are the wall tiles in Brisbane and ceramic floor tiles which can be store purchased and fitted in with ease.

However, for a more unusual touch, try out a few outdoor stone tiles in the bathroom. They are as non-slip and easily cleaned as any regular floor tile, but will add a more rustic elegance to your bathroom. These stone tiles, mixed with cut-cement finished counters and even walls make a beautifully dark and mysterious bathroom which can be elegantly lit up with small towels, rugs and flowers being the only dash of color.

Color Usage

As aforementioned, you can always chose darker tones for the washroom to give it a more modern elegant, mysterious look. Or the traditional bright white colored washroom can be chosen. Although the dark tones give a very rich look to even the smallest washrooms when lit up properly, I personally prefer a lighter shade as it is easier to clean. True, it will also get a lot dirtier faster, but as it is my bathroom, I would want to know when it needs a cleaning at its earliest. However, in a more tropical context with large openings and skylights, the dark tones will set off beautifully against the lush greenery and will be ideal. In the dry areas of the bathroom, one can even use a beautiful wall paper which can set the tone for the bathroom, while a similar toned set of tiles can be used for the walls. The same stone tiles or floor tiles can be used in both the wet and dry areas to link the two spaces visually.
