Making minor upgrades to your house can be quite the exciting chore, be it repainting the walls or adding new pieces of furniture. But upgrading or redoing your bathroom can be a little more complicated than changing the carpets in your living room. People don’t often think of bathrooms as needing upgrades as long as all its fixtures remain functional. While it’s true that you don’t need to upgrade your bathroom as often, you can always improve its aesthetic appeal while ensuring that everything is in order. If you’ve made any changes to the style or general design of the house, redoing your bathroom will make sure that it looks consistent with the rest of the house. Therefore, maybe it’s time that your bathroom caught up with your upgraded home design and here’s how to make sure it does:
Changing the lighting in the bathroom can have an enormous effect on the general ambiance of the bathroom. If the lighting is dull it can easily make the area seem smaller and cramped, in addition to casting shadows around your face and causing unattractive color hues when using the mirror, which is the last thing you’d want to worry about when getting ready in the morning. You can replace old lightbulbs with new fluorescent one with a lighting that is warmer and more similar to the light cast on a bright, sunny day. The mirror in your bathroom needs the best source of light and for this, you can fix wall-mount lights on the sides and above the mirror to illuminate your face from both sides and above. If you’ve recently chosen to be more energy efficient in your household, you can switch to energy efficient LED bulbs as they wouldn’t heat up your bathroom like incandescent lights.
Your bathroom fixtures and hardware require upgrades as they are prone to wear and tear and rusting. And replacing them will help improve the aesthetic appeal of the room. This is especially true if your bathroom fixtures like faucets and showerheads have turned rusty and dingy. You can hire a plumber Malvern to repair or replace any broken pipes before installing new fixtures. If you’re feeling more adventurous, you can replace the current tiles of the bathroom, especially if they do not resonate with the current design of the rest of the house.
If you’ve upgraded your home’s design with a more modern touch, you can add towels, floor mats and shower curtains that follow the same colors or patterns used throughout the other rooms in the house. Colors such as white, grey and beige are colors often used in houses that follow a modern design. If you enjoy the occasional, but much-needed, therapeutic bath that takes a little more time than usual, you can add in a bit of wall art or other decorative pieces you’d enjoy looking at during your bath. However, it’s important to make sure that these pieces are water resistant. You can improve the relaxing ambience of the room by adding scented candles or a room diffuser to add improve its aroma.
