Bathrooms are one of the most popular and commonly remodeled rooms in the home. And since they are a high-traffic space (and one where updates are noticeable), doing so can have a significant effect on resale value. When starting a bathroom remodeling project think about utility as well as design. Bathrooms are often difficult jobs because multiple components must be arranged to fit–and function–in a small space. There's also multiple water elements so doing the project correctly, from plumbing to ventilation, is imperative. Due to frequent use and the resulting wear and tear, bathrooms tend to start breaking down after about 20 years, whether that's a perpetually leaky faucet or crumbling grout or chipping tiles (or all three). On average, bathroom remodels cost $16,724, so your design should be both intentional and strategic in order to secure a high return on investment, as well as to create a functional space. That said, bathrooms are typically small, enclosed rooms so they are also a place in your home where you can play around a little bit with color and texture.
When it's time to paint, make sure you have planned your color palette. Keep in mind that painting a wall an accent color takes time. Use neutral colors to make your bathroom feel calm and aesthetically pleasing. Create a neutral color palette to form the base theme of your bathroom. Utilize textures and patterns in neutral tones to add creativity and depth. Remember that the color white is associated with cleanliness. An alternative to painting is to add pops of color by showcasing colorful hand towels, bathroom tile, rugs or even robes to create your own ambiance and flair. Hang bold, vibrant towels or robes to add color and personality. Display stylish soap dishes and accessories for a designer touch. Paint your mirror frame an accent color.
Some of the most important things to keep in mind when considering different bathroom remodeling ideas are choosing materials that are easy to maintain, maximizing energy efficiency and focusing on brightness wherever possible.
