Remodeling Your Bathroom? Follow These Design Tips
Embarking upon a bathroom remodel is an exciting time. Although it's often a utilitarian room, we tend to spend a decent amount of time in our bathrooms. Remodeling can make that space more functional as well as provide the feel of a relaxing retreat you need after a long day. By considering the following design tips, the Kitchen Tune-Up team is confident in your ability to create the bathroom of your dreams!
One of the first things to consider in any bathroom remodel is the overall layout and the creation (or enhancement) of a focal point within the room. Most often, the shower or tub serves as the natural focal point, usually because they are the largest elements in the space. Incorporating a large walk-in shower is a popular design choice and is an impactful way to redesign the space. Some homeowners choose to bring in a freestanding bathtub, which often becomes the central component of the entire room.
Cabinetry is an essential component of any bathroom. There are a number of different products and tools that are best stored within the bathroom, and a lack of storage space is often a primary concern during a bathroom remodel. Cabinetry is also an area in which homeowners can incorporate favorite design elements. Cabinets come in such an array of sizes and colors that it's easy to find the perfect fit for your room and style. For those who are on a budget, cabinet door replacement or refacing can serve to update existing cabinetry.
A growing trend in bathroom design is the incorporation of open shelving. This storage solution provides greater accessibility and a chance to enhance the visual appeal of the bathroom by putting beautiful towels, carefully selected storage containers and other accessories on display.
One of the most powerful tools for changing the look and feel of an outdated bathroom is color. Because the bathroom is one of the smallest rooms within a home, it lends itself to bold color choices. This is the place where you can experiment with colors, patterns or textures that you may be hesitant to use in larger rooms. Some people prefer to limit splashes of color to accessories while choosing neutral and soothing tones for the walls, flooring and cabinetry. When it comes to cabinets, homeowners should remember that stained wood is not the only available option. Painted cabinets can drastically change the look and feel of your bathroom for a relatively minor investment.
