Your bathroom may be the smallest room in the house but it is perhaps one of the most important for your family. This is where you spend your alone time either relaxing or brainstorming your next life project. If your bathroom is in need of updating there are many things that you can do to create a pleasant, ambient feel. The bathroom can increase the value of your home if you upgrade it correctly. That is why it is essential that you create the right feel for your bathroom.
If it’s been some time since you last upgraded, you may need to change out the bath, shower, toilet and wash basin. If you don’t change everything that is old and shabby will really stand out in an upgraded bathroom. Whatever style that you are after, you have many to choose from like modern to retro or classical to hip. You will need to have a budget so that you don’t have the cost to upgrade going through the roof. Top of the range bathrooms can be found from companies creating bespoke designs. On the lower and more budget conscious end, you can easily get nice suites on the internet or at high street stores. Besides the design, you need to include the fitting costs into your budget. If you are unable to fit the appliances yourself most companies offer a fitting service but this may cost extra.
If you are not able to replace the entire bathroom at the moment, there are more inexpensive options. Old taps on a bath or wash basin can be replaced with new modern designs that can be found in any DIY store and can be fitted quite easily. There are several Lowes and Home Depot locations in the Triangle area that will have plenty of options to choose from. Alternatively, you may want to replace a tatty shower curtain with a clear screen to provide a cleaner look and feel. These options are very affordable and very easy to upgrade. New tiles on the wall or floor of the bathroom can be very effective and can offer a clean, sleek look to the room and are also very simple to maintain. When looking at flooring, whether it’s wood, carpet or tile, be sure that it can handle the humidity in your bathroom.
Yet another awesome way to save time, money, and completely makeover your bathroom is to hire a professional refinishing company. If you are looking for a great shower repair company in Cary who can also refinish tubs, countertops, and cabinets, then look no further. Specialized Refinishing, a North Carolina favorite, can handle all your home refinishing needs. The company is a great example of the many services offered by a licensed refinishing company that may not have even knew existed.
Apart from the main appliances in the bathroom there are several other ways to create a fresh new look. Decide on a color scheme that suits your mood. Soft furnishings such as bath mats, curtains or blinds and lots of soft, fluffy towels can be co-ordinated. With a huge selection of options, you should take your time and have fun coming up with the design of your bathroom. You can also add some color to the bathroom by adding pictures and paintings or you can create a focal point like potted plants or scented candles. The candles can also create a sensual mood with its aroma. Other affordable options include adding a new soap dispenser, toilet roll holder or toilet brush.
Finally, make sure you have adequate storage to hide away those bathroom essentials, keeping the look tidy and perhaps, most importantly, clean.
