remodeling is a popular home improvement project
that many homeowners undertake because the elements
of bathroom design are so varied that it's easy
to make the bathrooms in the home truly unique.
There are a number of different fixtures in the
bathroom, like the sink, bathtub, toilet, cabinets
and mirrors just to name a few, that any homeowner
interested in remodeling the space should consider.
One of the first places you can look for your project
is the floor. Tile is popular among homeowners not
only for its affordability but for the fact that
tile can be arranged in certain patterns that can
complement the rest of the space.
Think about things like patterns of alternating
color and you'll have a good idea of where to start
on your bathroom floor and how it can fit into the
larger overall scheme that you're aiming to accomplish
with your new bathroom design.
The mirror is another part of the bathroom that
many homeowners consider when reworking their bathrooms.
In the case of bathroom mirrors, the old saying
that "bigger is better" is usually true.
Consider using a large mirror with a bold, colorful
frame as part of the centerpiece for your sink fixture.
A large mirror with an eye catching frame can draw
the eye of your guests to it and fool them into
thinking the space is large than it really is if
you have a large bathroom.
This illusory trick can also apply to the installation
of windows if the space is permitting. It's no secret
that small bathrooms can seem a little claustrophobic,
so employing these tricks make the space seem bigger
than it is can work in your favor.
If maximizing space is one focus of your bathroom
design project then you can get a sink with a large
empty space beneath it. Having a sink like that
installed can make it so that you have a place to
store essentials like paper towels, soap and other
things that belong in the bathroom.
Having a storage area for these things also creates
a streamlined look that keeps the bathroom free
of clutter and makes the bathroom more comfortable.
One other trick that can be used in your bathroom
design is the use of glass doors.
By having a shower door made of glass, guests can
see the wall beyond, further plying on the illusion
of a larger space than what's really there.
You could also consider putting in a new door that
has some kind of pattern on for the sole purpose
of drawing the attention of guests that are in the
bathroom. Putting a pattern or artwork of some kind
on the bathroom door will create a focal point that
would otherwise likely go ignored.
