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.
According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, bathroom fixtures take up 20% of the renovation budget on average so when choosing fixtures and finishes consider who is using the space and how heavily it will be used. Is it a kid's bathroom? Then plastic laminate flooring and countertops are a good option because they're both durable and inexpensive (and high-end material is of less importance to children). You'll thank yourself later for using finishes that are low maintenance and easy to keep clean. In that regard, choose quartz instead of marble and make sure glass shower doors are treated with anti-spotting agents. In terms of fixtures, you'll want high-quality construction like all-brass parts and a PVD finish that will resist scratches. Basic chrome is cheaper than materials like nickel or bronze. Low budget, high impact swaps include replacing specific features; here's our guide on how to pick out the best bathroom vanity. When making any changes consider where you can creatively hide storage in the room and for energy efficiency be sure to look for low-flow toilet models.
Floating vanities. OK, so this isn't technically a sink. But it's worth mentioning when talking about sinks. What it is: A floating vanity "hovers" or "floats" above the floor (meaning the floor beneath is exposed). The types of sinks that are used with floating vanities vary as well. It's yet another look to consider as you're pondering bathroom ideas. Houzz has a great article with plenty of eye candy here. Those are the basic sink types, but what you need to keep in mind is that there are literally thousands of styles. Don't believe us?which features over 11,000 sinks. For example, your vessel sink can come in almost any color, material, and shape imaginable (who says it has to be an oval?). The "pedastal" portion on your pedastal sink can have subtle or loud flourishes, depending on the effect you're trying to achieve. The hardware that accompanies the sink--like the faucets--can affect the whole look and feel as well.
