We all dream of large, comfortable bathrooms. Unfortunately, we don’t always have them. If you have a small bathroom you shouldn’t worry as you can remodel it and give it a look that your friends with large bathrooms will envy. To help you out here are small bathroom remodeling tips that you should consider:
You can give your bathroom a new look by installing a new floor covering. If the current floor is in good shape you don’t have to change it but if you want to change it, you should install a new laminate floor over it. If you don’t like the laminate floor go with a tile floor. When installing tiles, use small ones (4-inch or smaller). Avoid large tiles such as those between 6 and 10 inches as they will overwhelm the bathroom thus making it appear smaller. To give the room a big look, go with light-colored tiles. You can also paint the tiles a light color.
You have many options when it comes to remodeling your bathroom walls. You can use paint, tiles, or wallpapers. Regardless of the option that you go with ensuring that you use a blight color that will make the room appear big. To give the room an interesting look, combine the materials. For example, tile the bottom half of the bathroom and use the wallpaper or paint on the top half. If you opt for paint, use gloss or semi-gloss product. Bathroom contractors recommend that you use oil-based paint as it lasts for long and is easy to clean.
Bathroom plumbing fixtures
Unless you are looking to relocate the plumbing system, you don’t have to change the location of the plumbing fixtures. This means that the sinks, toilet, shower and tub should remain in the same location. You should note that changing the location of the fixtures doesn’t mean that you can’t install new or replace the fixtures. Bathroom experts report that installing a new sink cabinet or toilet can give your bathroom a dramatic look. To give your bathroom an uninterrupted look, ensure that the new fixtures match the theme of the bathroom.
These are tips on how to renovate your bathroom. When doing the renovation, work within your budget. Also, ensure that you work with a certified and experienced bathroom remodeler. This calls for you to take your time when hiring. You should research to ensure that the professional is experienced enough.
