Next to kitchens, bathrooms are so important to our home. The reason why bathrooms deserve more attention than, say, a bedroom is that bedrooms require superficial decorating in order to be beautiful. Adding artwork, displaying your clothes, getting nice bed sheets – all of these will make a bedroom beautiful. When it comes to bathrooms, however, a renovation will be required, which is why you need to plan better, and follow this guide:
Create Your Mood Board
Mood boards are fun to make. You can create a physical one, or you can simply create a new board on Pinterest. Where you create it or how you create it doesn’t matter. What does matter is that you brainstorm and find items (ideally items that you can actually buy) for your renovation and put them into one place. This means choosing the flooring, the counters, the colors, the finishing’s, and so on. For specialist items, like custom sinks, you will want to make sure that the artisan is nearby, otherwise the shipping costs could end up costing you more than the item itself.
Create Your Budget
Once you have your mood board, you should be able to create an accurate budget on how much the whole renovation should cost. From there, all you need to do is save up for it. If the specific items you have chosen are beyond what you are willing to pay, always consider cheaper alternatives before giving up on your design.
You can have a beautiful bathroom no matter what your budget is, you just need to be open about your alternatives. That being said, you always want your bathroom to be durable, so choosing the right materials is key. Laminate is a great option if you want an artistic or even wood design in your bathroom. All you need to do is pick your pattern and hire a professional to install your laminate flooring from Rated People.
Spruce Up Basic Pieces
Your sink, toilet, and bathtub or shower will always be the most expensive items to any bathroom renovation, which is why another budget-friendly alternative is not to replace these pieces at all, but instead install new finishing’s. Get new taps and a fancy new shower head, and you can make your bathroom shine. Other ways you can spruce up what you already have is to redo the grouting. Grout can get dirty and even start to decay, but fixing it so that your whole bathroom sparkles is easy, if laborious. Hire someone to get the job done or take a weekend to DIY.
No bathroom is complete without decoration. Get a new mirror, get a matching toiletry set, a fun bathmat, artwork, beautiful shelving, and even add a few plants! There are so many ways you can transform your bathroom by simply decorating it, just remember that bathrooms do steam up, so choose items that last in moisture.
You can either have a bathroom or you can have a luxurious spa experience. Rather than settling on something drab, design, budget, and get to work on transforming your bathroom into a little spa getaway you can enjoy every day.
