Advice On Bathroom Remodeling

Many homeowners choose to remodel their bathrooms for many different reasons. There is a difference between remodeling and repairing. Remodeling is changing the entire look of a bathroom, and repairing is fixing something that is damaged. There are plenty more remodeling ideas for your bathroom.

For instance, if your bathroom is small and you want to change it to make it look larger, there are some ideas that can do just that. First take all the furniture out of the bathroom that you possibly can, then paint it using a soft pastel color for the main color and a brighter pastel for the fixtures, it will not only make your bathroom look larger, but it will also give the bathroom a more cozy feeling. You can also lay down a darker pastel-colored bath set; the darker color will highlight the softer colors in the bathroom.

For a small amount of money, you could make some changes to your bathroom sink by adding a wall to wall counter and install shelves under the counter. This will add more space to store your necessities such as towels, wash clothes, soaps, and extra toilet tissue. You can also measure about 8 to 10 inches up from the bathroom sink and install a shelf for cosmetics and shaving creams. Then right above that, you can purchase a mirror with lights around it to add more lighting to the bathroom sink. Also to make the bathroom seem larger you can install a larger mirror on a wall, to reflect the light that is already in the bathroom.

Also by purchasing a two or a four space saver shelf set that installs over the commode, will allow even more space. You can store more shower towels on them and anything else you might want to put near the shower.

For the bathtub area, you can install a few corner shelves on the two sides of the bathtub, and some hooks to hang scribbles on. You can also install a plastic shelf midway of the bathtub wall for more storage.

If the shower still needs to have some extra light, you might decide to put a lamp on the back of the commode. This is what I had to do to my bathroom. I am one of those people that have had to remodel my bathroom to make it look larger than it actually is.

You can also take advantage of the corners by adding corner shelves in the bathroom such as the corners of the new sink counter that you just installed. By adding some green plants, whether they are real or artificial will also add coziness to your bathroom.

The type of shower curtain that you choose to install will help the illusion of having a larger bathroom, as well as putting four inches or larger contact border around the ceiling and the middle, and bottom of the walls.

These are some of my favorite ideas for your bathroom that do not cost a lot of money and can definitely make your bathroom something to be proud of, and you can enjoy bragging about doing it yourself to your friends and neighbors.
