Your bathroom is a space that should be relaxing and enjoyable, so the goal with bathroom remodeling isn’t just to make it look beautiful but to also solve problems. For instance, small bathrooms need to feel more open and airy and a dark bathroom needs to seem brighter.
With the right remodeling ideas, your time spent in the room will be stress-relieving and relaxing. A good bathroom design can solve all the problems that you currently find unpleasant. Maybe it’s a small master bath or a dark guest bath that you are having a problem with.
The right remodeling plan can completely change how you feel about any bathroom in your home. Here’s a few tips from our remodeling company about how you can solve 3 of the most common bathroom problems with remodeling.
Natural Light For Dark Bathrooms
The going trend in bathroom design is to add skylights or windows. Opening up the space with natural light helps you to create a modern bathroom design. In addition, the hard lines are erased with a larger two-person shower, by replacing a tub with a walk-in shower, and by properly placing the storage.
By breaking up the hard lines in the bathroom, it feels more open. Space can also often be borrowed by bumping out a closet or by moving walls. With a good design, the bathroom feels more open and attractive. Consider incorporating more glass in the way of windows or a skylight and streamline the design.
Making Long, Narrow Bathrooms Seem More Square With Accent Tiles
You can trick the eye into thinking a long, narrow bathroom is more square by using accent tiles to create lines in the right places. Bathroom tiles can literally go on any surface. They can be mixed and matched to create an amazing bathroom design. And, there are so many choices in texture, color, and shine. By using tile in different ways than just installing one style in one single color, you can trick the eye into thinking that the bathroom is larger.
On short walls, a horizontal line of accent tile on the floors or walls will make the length of the wall seem longer. Vertical lines of accent tile make the ceiling seem taller. Tile can also distract the eye from features that we don’t want to stand out by focusing on something special.
When choosing bathroom tile for remodeling, have fun and play a little. You can come up with a custom design that solves some annoying problems very easily.
Solving The One Sink Dilemma
Two sinks can be more comfortable than a single vanity, especially in a master bathroom. But a double vanity with one long mirror is not very stylish. If there is any way you can incorporate two separate sinks into the design plan of a bathroom that serves two or more, do so.
The bathroom is a great place to design modern features. Think about a couple of bowl sinks resting on two built-in floating vanities. This is a great design for smaller master baths. If you have space, you can incorporate two custom vanities and countertops with undermount sinks and possibly even a makeup vanity.
