Homeowners biting at the bit to add various home improvements, while minimizing disruptions in their daily routines, can opt to start on the project section by section. For example, starting with a bathroom remodel proves very logical because there are usually multiple bathrooms in a house, which means that if one is under renovation, another serves as a functional substitute.
The size of the bathroom also lends itself to being first on the remodel list. With some exceptions, its relative smallness means the work can be done more quickly than other areas of the home. The only caveat to this involves the instance of extensive plumbing repairs or replacements.
In any case, here are some trendy ideas that you can bring up with the designer or contractor who is remodeling your bathroom.
Technology on the Floor
This year, design experts are looking at adding more functional technology inside bathrooms. Radiant heating tile on the floor is one example. These tiles do as the name implies: warm up certain sections of the bathroom floor, which commonly cools overnight to present a chilly reception for your morning feet.
The possibility to place these radiant heating tiles on whichever portion of the floor you choose makes them appealing. It can be in the toilet area, the entrance, or at the foot of the tub and shower. Moreover, they will certainly increase the value of your home because technological improvements are high on the list of home value enhancers.
Subtle Colors on the Wall
Moving up from the floor, it’s now time to set your eyes on the walls. If you want it looking spartan clean and very minimal, you can choose plain colors for the wall, but then offset it by a small pop of color, such as that from the accent of a painted orchid stem.
The in-thing this year, however, is to apply color to the bathroom wall. It doesn’t have to be loud and intrusive—you can apply a small tile mosaic just to add a minimal quotient of pizzazz on an otherwise clean wall. This can instantly enhance or modernize the look of the bathroom.
Multipurpose but Fashionable Storage
A big hit nowadays among interior designers is the use of bathroom cabinets that emanate the aesthetic of actual furniture. Not only does it add to the visual appeal of the room, but it also adds more functionality.
Closed cabinets help organize things better, but discreetly. So, in case you would prefer to have the bathroom items stowed away from sight, these cabinets can work well to suit your needs.
