One of the most exciting things that we can plan is definitely remodeling our house. This is always a very fun activity (albeit a costly one), and all of us enjoy spending time online trying to find the right furniture or making a plan on how we would like our new house to look. Some nationalities remodel more often than others – Australians, for example, are crazy about remodeling – so it’s always good to give all of them a couple of new and fresh ideas. This article will focus on the bathroom, a very important room in the house that we rarely speak about. It’s always the bedroom, living room and kitchen, but rarely the bathroom. So, if you had any plans to remodel your bathroom, this is what you should have in mind:
1. The focal point
You can ask any interior designer, they will tell you the same thing – the toilet should not be the first thing that you see once you open your bathroom door. Of course, some bathrooms are smaller than others and the only spot where you can place your toilet is across the door, but if you have the option of changing its place, do so. This is only because it’s not the most aesthetically pleasing thing to look at, and if you want a spa-like vibe, you might want to put your bath there and change the whole mood of your bathroom. This should be the focal point, not the toilet.
2. Mind the lighting
Even though you might not find the lighting in your bathroom as important as that in your living room, this is the time to rethink that. Your bathroom should be a place where you feel completely comfortable, and it’s no secret that bad lighting makes us leave the room as soon as possible. So, implementing good and soft lighting in the bathroom is the right way to go. The best place where you could install good lamps is the vanity, or the space above the mirror. Not only will you have great lighting to take your bathroom selfies, but it can give your bathroom a completely new look.
3. Pick a style
Obviously, one of the most important things that you should do is pick your style. There is a plethora of options to choose from, you can go either retro, minimalistic, maximalistic or dark. One of the key things you should do is choose your tiles, so if you’re from Australia and you love to renovate your home every couple of years, you might want to choose high-quality tiles in Canberra, Melbourne or any other city – choose the ones that you love and that you will be satisfied with for many years to come. Depending on the style that you choose, you might even have to combine two different sets of tiles, which can also be a very aesthetically pleasing option.
4. Consider corner sinks
If you have a small bathroom, you might want to make it a bit more compact, and the best option for this is to consider corner sinks. However, corner sinks are very popular at the moment, so you can go for it regardless of the size of your bathroom. You will create much more space in the bathroom which always gives that feeling of comfort and space, and it can make the whole room much more interesting.
5. Incorporate high-end materials
Finally, the choice of the materials can either make or break the final outcome of your bathroom. If you choose cheap materials, there’s a chance it might show, and you definitely don’t want a tacky bathroom that looks cheap. Since bathrooms are usually smaller places, you want something small to make it more luxurious. What you want to invest in is either wall and floor covering, countertops or the sink. You can also choose to have your bathroom details in gold or iron as that can always look very rustic and nice.
Renovating the bathroom takes the same amount of planning as renovating any other room, so it’s very important not to take it for granted. We all spend a lot of time in the bathroom, so we deserve a room that we will feel comfortable in.
