Most people are clueless when they start planning bathroom renovation. Even if they have some idea, it usually comes down to picking certain tiles and the general theme of the bathroom. However, there is much more to it.
Bathroom renovation is a complex procedure involving contractors and architects. Homeowners have a lot of leeways when it comes to design and certain elements. So, why don’t you take advantage of this?
Here are some of the things you might try in your bathroom. They might represent a small change which completely revamps the room.
Using the tiles properly
When it comes to bathroom remodeling, it usually comes down to tiles. They are the basis for everything and as such, there is no point in going further if you do not have some solid idea. A popular choice as of late is placing a tile and having a larger strip that is completely different. Make sure that your floor and wall tiles are different. Otherwise, the room may become nauseating. Lastly, if you have a bathroom stall, it might be a good idea to have the same tile in the stall as you have on the rest of the floor. This will give a feeling of a large space. For a more modern alternative to tiles you could consider bathroom splashbacks, they tend to be cheaper, easier to install and still look great.
Traditionally, we use the walls for towel hooks. And this is where our creativity ends. It doesn’t have to be so. You can use the walls to install jars or shelves where you can place things such as ear wipes etc. You could even try looking for coloured acrylic and make some pretty cool wall art for your room. Do not limit yourself by getting a large cupboard which should facilitate every single item. Spread the items throughout the bathroom giving it a feeling of creative chaos.
This is one of those smart solutions. Sliding doors are not only good looking, they are also tremendously functional. Simply put, by installing them, you no longer have to think about opening the door or if the door hits something in the bathroom.

Decorating the mirror
Similarly to picture in your living room, the mirror is the element that gives soul to your bathroom. Furthermore, most people tend to look in the mirror when they enter the room. This is why you have to take this opportunity and make the best out of it. The area around the mirror should be decorated in order to attract even more attention. You can use hanging plants. This is an amazing solution for bathrooms that wish to have a natural feel to them and conceal mirror frame. Also, you can use hangers and other motifs to add some vibe.
Shelf above the door
Another solution that is both functional and eye-pleasing, shelf above the door will give you some extra space and reduce the clutter. It is also a good way to prevent kids from getting certain dangerous items such as the razors.
Decorating your windows
Most bathrooms have windows. If you don’t have one, you should definitely get it. Although most of us have a curtain for windows, giving us much-needed privacy, people do not pay much attention to this area. As you can presume, there are several things you can do with it. Window frames can be painted in some silly color. Together with some nice flowery curtains, this will give the bathroom a roomy feeling. You can also add a board with plants making the entire experience that much better.
Hopefully, these ideas are just the thing you need. No matter what you decide, make sure to be creative and find your own style. There is no need to have a plain, functional bathroom if you can turn it into something your entire family can enjoy.
