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.
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.
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.
