Who says the bathtub has to be white? Also, why does it have to be brand new? A trip to the flea market and other state fairs opens up your horizons when it comes to home pieces that are one of a kind and carries in itself the kind of history that you can never experience with brand new items.
Besides the ample space that everybody strives for in roomier facilities in residences and offices, it is the personal perception of space that matters so much. A room appears cluttered and claustrophobic if you put in too many things. Remove a few and you immediately feel the difference. Lighter, single colors on the walls of small rooms heighten the feeling of wider spaces. Larger tile sizes elicit the same perception of largeness. Mirrors bring ideas of vivid space that flows in all directions.
Make a pebble mat and place it on the floor to get a spa feel for your bathroom. You can easily buy pebbles from crafts stores and you can use an old rubber mat you have. Using some strong contact adhesive, glue all the pebbles to the mat.
Would it be a floor placed vanity or wall mounted one that brings a few advantages like easier maintenance and pest control? Countertops could be of natural stone like marble unless it is made of glass. China is traditionally popular, but synthetics are good too and available in several colors.
The cost ranges expected to incur would vary according to a number of factors. This would include factors such as how old the house is, nature of renovations already carried out, the capacity of change you wish to achieve, the price of selecting a bathroom remodeling contractor of choice. Thus, it is important to first come up with a realistic budget as proposed above and then work within it.
If you happen to notice dark spots sprouting up in the corners, parts of the ceiling, directly above the bathtub, or shower, your bathroom needs an update. Keep in mind that not all leaks/drips are visible, so make sure you look for mildew and mold near the edges and corners of your shower and bathtub. Sometimes mildew and mold problems can arise from minor issues like drips, leaks, faulty pipes, or improper ventilation which can be easily fixed by doing some minor repairs. However, in case you have a serious mildew or mold problem even after you have done the minor repairs, chances are that you have a much bigger problem to deal with. Make sure you deal with that problem immediately, before it gets worse. If the water gets into your bathroom floor, it could eventually end up compromising its' structural integrity.
Whether you have inherited problems with a new purchase of a home, or if you have lived in your home for a substantial amount of time and have not checked on the possibility of mold, then do so. Mold can occur in a number of different environments. Older homes and homes that are located in an area that has experienced heavy rainfall are particularly susceptible. Not only does this affect your health, but left untreated, it can do irreparable damage. Utilize your bathroom remodeling as an opportunity to clear the air, literally.
Placing one of the small bathroom sinks in a corner can also give your bathroom an upgraded feel.
