4 Great Ideas For Stylish Bathroom Remodeling Project

A stylish bathroom is every homeowner’s dream. Whether your wish is just to create the master bathroom you’ve always wanted or to turn an outdated facility into a functional one, there are a multitude of options to suit every budget and preference. Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing as you plan your bathroom remodeling project:

Make Space

Open up the space in your bathroom by adding a window or mirror wall. Most bathrooms have an external wall, which is often completely closed without even a tiny window. Break out the wall and replace it with a floor-to-ceiling glass window wall overlooking your garden, if possible. If your bathroom overlooks your neighbor’s living room or kitchen, however, it might not be such a good idea. In that case, a full length, full width mirror gives a similar effect.

Let the Outdoors In

For ground-level bathrooms, opening up the room with a set of French doors leading into the garden really gives you the experience of bringing the outdoors in. Make it private with a screened off mini-garden where you can dry off au naturel when the mood takes you, or let it be an alternative to your summer tanning with refreshing cool showers.

Boost the Bathing Experience

Spa baths have been around since Roman times, and we still love them just as much as we did then. More, actually, because now you can install a whirlpool tub with jets and benefit from relaxing soaks, rejuvenating steams or therapeutic jet massage. If you have the space, why not consider installing a bath big enough for two, so you and your significant other can relax together? And if you don’t have a big enough bathroom, toss out the bathtub completely in favor of a huge shower with a sculpted seat for convenient lounging in the water.

Add Sufficient Storage

There’s always a need for storage, even in the bathroom. Extra towels, luxurious bath and body lotions—you name it. Include sufficient storage in your bathroom remodeling process by installing spacious under-counter storage cabinets, shelves that stretch to the ceiling and decorative corner cabinets. Try “floating” glass shelves at odd intervals in the wall above the bath—the clear transparent look prevents the wall from becoming too cluttered.

Color Combos

Tired of the old white and beige walls in your bathroom? Generate some interest with unusual color combos such as royal blue and grey paired with white fittings, or walls that match the color patterns in a marble floor. Mix pastels with brights and lights with darks to get a fresh, modern look or a glamorous 50s feel. For an authentic appeal, combine period pieces with colors and finishes that were popular at the time.
