Cool bathroom upgrade ideas to try out

A creative and well-done bathroom design can add a needed touch of uniqueness and luxury to your washroom. You can revive a tired and dull bathroom without the need for a complete overhaul.

A renovation once in a while can help with maintenance and breathe new life into your private room. Below are some bathroom upgrade ideas you should definitely try out.

1. PLAY WITH PAINT AND COLOR

Painting walls, vanity or shelves are among the inexpensive ways to update your bathroom design without having to make significant changes. You can creatively use paint to increase or reduce the perceived height of the ceiling.

If you feel your ceiling is too high, try painting the ceiling the same color as the walls. Monochromatic color visually lowers and disguises your ceiling’s height. You can try a different color for the ceiling to produce the effect of perceived height increase.

2. LIGHTING AND BRIGHTENING

Even an exceptionally designed bathroom may feel drab and depressing when the lighting is not right. One efficient way to brighten up a bathroom is adding mirrors. Mirrors make a room look bigger instantly.

A recommendable option is a room-length mirror for an impressive change. You can add a few bright and large pictures to reflect the existing light around your bathroom. A chandelier and sconces are also an excellent option for adding extra light and brightening up the room.

A solar tube can also be a natural skylight alternative. Consider replacing a solid door with an etched glass door. Such doors are great for letting in maximum light while also maintaining privacy.

3. FLOATING VANITIES

A floating vanity can update a bathroom with any style and design. It can make your private room feel airier as it adds open space between the floor and the bottom of the vanity.

You can go for something simple such as a solid plank bearing a vessel sink. You can also outfit it with double sinks and storage drawers.

4. ADD SEATING

This may seem a little unorthodox but can work wonders for the looks and feel of your bathroom. Comfortable seating can be a great place to lean back and relax or sit while you towel off. You can go for a cushioned ottoman or chair. Alternatively, you can install a wooden bench beneath a window and have it cushioned with lots of pillows. Seating will definitely up the comfort levels of your bathroom.

5. SMART STORAGE

Smart and practical storage is the way to go and never gets out of style. Take advantage of your bathroom’s vertical space and take the cabinetry up the wall.

An alternative to built-in cabinetry is an antique or exciting piece of furniture. You can also go for open shelving. Floating open shelves instantly make the bathroom appear more prominent and less cramped.

6. RADIANT HEAT FLOORING

You can treat yourself to a warm underfoot by installing a radiant-heat system below the bathroom floor. A radiant heat system is especially great for typically cold flooring materials such as stone and ceramic tiles. You can add a simple touch or comfort and style by having a soft area rug greet your feet as you set out of the shower.

7. UPGRADE ACCESSORIES

Installing new bathroom accessories and hardware is the easiest and fastest way to freshen up and update your bathroom. Use temporary accents for color and texture addition, since you can easily switch them out.

8. STEAM SHOWER

Installing a shower that doubles up as a steam shower complete with a steam generator can provide you with a spa experience without leaving the house. Equip your shower with a tight-sealing door to make to steam-ready. You can also install a vapor barrier on the wall framing and ceiling to prevent moisture.
