A new remodeling project can be an intimidating prospect. In advance of taking the leap, you may want to consider making minor changes first as they may prove just as effective as a complete redesign in addressing your concerns. Consider these small bathroom remodeling options before undergoing a more extensive home remodeling process.
1. The Bathtub and Shower
The bathtub and shower areas top the list of areas of concern with homeowners. More extravagant upgrades include things like large jacuzzi spa tubs, multi-head showers, and steam rooms. But a quick and relatively inexpensive way to freshen the appearance of your bathtub or shower is by refinishing to conceal surface damage and discoloration and updating your fixtures: shower head, faucet, taps, and accessories. Talk to your Austin bathroom remodeling company to discern the best approach to achieve your update goals.
A room’s light exposure and paint color can greatly affect how you feel in the room as well as change your perception of the dimensions of it. Lighter, cool colors often make a space appear larger while darker, warm colors make it seem smaller and more cozy. Pattern is also something to consider. Vertical stripes can heighten the appearance of the room. And various surface techniques can add depth. Sometime colors have social or cultural implications that may need to be considered as well. It is important to identify what your ultimate goal is when painting the room. This helps to narrow the options and focus you on only the appropriate choices which is a good thing given how overwhelming the prospect of color selection can be.
Bathroom cabinetry is an economical update opportunity that doesn’t typically take too much time. Cabinets are the “face” of the room and are extremely instrumental in creating the feel of the room. Consider re-facing them, repainting them, or finding some stylish new pulls to update them.
While decor falls under the category of interior design rather than home remodeling, taking the time to update the decor is a very simple way to greatly enhance your bathroom. Changing out the vanity mirror is a great first step and there is an endless supply of stylish options available to you. Keep in mind that a larger sized mirror will visually expand the space and will make the room lighter. Adding artwork to the wall is a nice touch as is updating rugs, towels, and accessories.
