You can also use vintage light fixtures, old pieces of barn wood for shelves, or an old mirror above the sink. Every time you use something old instead of something new, you're probably saving money and reducing your consumption. Both very good things. Don't forget to give back too. Any items you take out of your bathroom can be donated to your local Goodwill or to a Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I've recently thought about redoing my own bathroom. My house was built in 1900 and I have one very small bathroom. Thanks to an unfortunate paint color choice, the walls look as if they were hosed down with Pepto Bismal. In other words, it really needs some work and repainting is number one on my list. After that, I'd love to upcycle some old wood or metal to create shelving above the toilet and next to the sink. The plumbing towel racks are also definitely going in.
You might think that the shower, tub, and tile are the "big" decisions when it comes to bathroom remodeling. And those decisions are certainly important. But don't forget--or underestimate--the power of the perfect sink. Now when we say "perfect sink" we're not talking about one that's free and self-cleans, too (though wouldn't that be nice?). We're talking about different sink styles and how the right (or wrong) one can impact the look and feel of the room. So let's review the different "types" of sinks you'll likely encounter as you begin your search. Undermount sinks. What they are: Undermounted sinks are mounted beneath the countertop surface. Benefits: It creates one seamless look (since there are no exposed lips). Also, they're easier to keep clean compared to drop-in sinks since there's no raised lip to catch debris or for bacteria and mildew to grow. These types of sinks are especially popular with solid surface countertops where a fabricator custom makes a hole for the sink. They don't work as well with tile or laminate since these materials can have weak points that don't support the sink effectively.
Of course, injecting some of your own style into the bathroom doesn't have to be limited to wall coverings or accessories. Fleurco‘s tub features a print on the outside. While this one was designed to be a promotional item, highlighting the company's style and quality, it opens the door to design ideas that are uniquely your own when it comes to designing a singular bathroom retreat for your home. Options for bathroom surfaces have also expanded, giving homeowners more choice in types style, look and durability. Vicostone, is an engineered stone made from up to 93% pure natural quartz aggregates. The stone is combined with a polymer resin and color powder, making it harder, more durable and lower maintenance than many natural stones. Here, it is shown as a tub surround in a design that adds plenty of space for bathing necessities. The rapid pace of technology and evolving styles continue to change the look of bathrooms. Trends may come and go, but they are all leaving their mark on the level of style and functionality that we expect from a bathroom, compared to the days when the newest fixtures were all we needed.
