An average bathroom remodel will require you to shell out more than $15,000, so many homeowners would just opt for minor improvements since this is a more cost-effective option. Fortunately, it is easier to mimic the things you do in a major remodelling project at a fraction of the cost.
Here are some tips on how you can make your bathroom look expensive:
Tile to the ceiling or diagonally
Diagonal tiling will make your bathroom look fancy, and it will open up some space as well, so this is great if you have a small bathroom. You can also tile the whole wall or tile up to the ceiling since this can add a lot of sparkle and dimension to an otherwise lifeless surface.
Although you must choose the best materials for these types of projects because you need to use the right type of tiles that complement the size and colour scheme of your bathroom.
Add large-scale lighting
You can also install flush-mount chandeliers to your bathroom because this will make a big impact overhead but it won’t take up any of the room’s physical space. So, it is a great option for any type of bathroom, and it will make the space elegant and luxurious.
Add some greens
Placing plants on your bathroom and making it one of the highlights in that space is also a great idea because this can help draw the eye up – making your bathroom look larger. Although you might think that the bathroom is the last place to store a living thing, some plants can actually live or even thrive in the bathroom. Try Boston ferns, orchids, or even aloe vera.
Use classy containers
If you want to change the ambiance in your bathroom, you can use stylish bathroom accessory sets that are usually paired with an authentic soap dispenser and toothbrush holder. You can also place glass bottles, and stylish dispensers for your body wash lotion and shampoo.
This will make your bathroom feel special and luxurious even if your toiletries are on the cheaper side.
Punch up your towels
Another great idea is to use towels with rich details like ribbon trim, embroidered edges, and monogramming. You can also buy exotic towels with unique designs like those Turkish towels that can dry easily and lightweight.
Overall, these are just some of the things you can do to improve the look and feel of your bathroom without breaking your bank. However, if you feel as though you are in the market for a stellar upgrade, contact us to renovate your Doncaster bathroom.
There are ways to expand the storage capacity of your bathroom without remodelling or adding square feet to your space. Here are strategies on how you can accomplish this in either your master or secondary bathroom.
Add in-wall storage
Although medicine cabinets are no longer the fad these days, especially for bathroom projects, their benefits have given birth to various types of tall and sleek in-wall cabinets that can hold many essential items. You can place one for each of your bathrooms or on an empty sidewall.
Instead of using vanity cabinets, you can install u-drawers that can wrap around the plumbing system. These drawers can save a lot of space and hold some of your essentials.
Add above-shower storage
If you have a high ceiling in your bathroom, you can install above-shower storage. This is useful for storing bath tissue or guestroom towels.
Back-of-door storage cabinets
Another great way of increasing your bathroom space is by adding a storage unit at the back door. These cabinets can hold cleaning items, toiletries and other necessities.
Add rail organisers are commonly used in a kitchen, and it is where the ingredients or meal preparation tools are stored. However, you can also install one on a tub wall which is great, especially if you have a shared bathroom.
Peg racks and swap hook
Peg racks can hold one bath sheet and are commonly installed in your bathroom wall. You can even add three or more swap hooks for additional functionality in your bathroom.
Add a towel rack
Another great way of storing towels, especially if you have a small bathroom, is to install a towel rack like those in a hotel. These towel racks are usually mounted high on a shower and beyond the spray zone of your showers. Learn more here about vanities.
Add freestanding storage
If your bathroom has extra floor space, you can add a freestanding storage cabinet or cart. Also, you can put storage baskets below a floating vanity since it will have some space at the bottom.
Eliminate dead zones in your bathroom
You can eliminate dead zones by adding false panels in front of your vanities. These panels can replace tilt-out trays that usually hold floss, toothbrush and other small items.
These are just some of the ways you can expand your bathroom if you have a limited budget or you are not ready to launch a remodelling project yet.
