Bring Your Bathroom Back From The Brink: 5 Useful Revamp Ideas
Bathrooms are usually last on your list during a home renovation. But they deserve careful consideration. Whether you are looking to sell or are just feeling uninspired by the same tired-looking space, treating your bathroom to a little TLC can give your home the boost it needs.
Below, we explore some simple steps you can take to bring this important room back from the brink.
1. Go all-natural
Going all-natural doesn’t mean your bathroom must become monochrome and lifeless. Incorporating more neutral colours into your theme, such as whites and beiges, will open up even the smallest of bathrooms, whilst creating a fresh atmosphere.
Sinks and splashbacks made from natural materials, such as marble or granite, can add a different dimension. With subtle colouring, stone offers a level of interest and sense of affluence to the most-used room in your house.
2. Dare to be bold
Do you dare to be bold instead? This season’s trends are full of bright colours. Spring 2020 has a lot to offer, from sage green to coral. And, best of all, you don’t need to go over the top in your application of them.
Having a feature wall in your bathroom is not unusual to say the least. But incorporating a splash of colour in a usually monotone space is a great way to add character into your home. Check out our blog on semi-precious stones which are great for injecting a little colour into a modest space.
3. Mix and match
If you are feeling even more adventurous, why not mix and match colours, patterns and materials? Classic combinations such as plain and patterned floors and walls are always a good way to show off your style without being too gaudy.
Or have a little more fun with stripes and dots. This typically clashes, but using them in a clever way here and there throughout your bathroom will give your guests something to talk about.
4. Include contemporary lighting
Contemporary lighting that brightens even the smallest of corners is a must-have in a bathroom. After all, these are spaces designed for getting ready for a night out, or carrying out a little self-care. So you’ll need a natural light-imitating bulb to enhance visibility.
Adding vanity table-like lighting to your bathroom mirror will give you the perfect glow for applying make-up. And it allows you to see every hair whilst shaving. It’s a good investment for both men and women alike.
5. Invest in sleek stone tiles
You need a bathroom that not only looks great, but can be manageable too. Some materials used in bathrooms can warp and harbour bacteria, meaning you’ll have to replace them in a few years or so. Stone tiles, on the other hand, have a lot more longevity.
They’re capable of seamlessly integrating with your bathroom’s shape, all the while protecting you and your family from mildew and bacteria. If properly maintained, employing stone such as marble, or a quartz like Caesarstone or Cambria, can mean you won’t have to spend a fortune on another renovation any time soon.
