Vintage Bathroom Remodel (2)

Normal everyday people who just want to get a professional look in our small typical size bathroom there is hope after all. Over 90% of the homes are not mansions or million dollar style custom homes and with budgets for us normal people being a little less than the typical millionaire, we have to be creative when decorating our space. Bathrooms are by far the most used rooms in a typical house and yet they tend to get overlooked when decorating. We tend to look at the main entertaining areas of our home first. Below are some ideas that can give inspiration when decorating your small bathroom.

Now your bathroom is clean and has a theme. The next step is to accessorize and perhaps repaint it. Do you like the color of the walls? If you find simple white walls pleasant and comforting, keep them that way. If you would like to give the room a whole new look, repaint it with a color that resonates the bathroom theme you have in mind. For instance, use sea foam green to bring back your fond memories of a vacation in the Caribbeans, or use golden yellow to create a bold visual interest that reminds you of a sunflower garden, etc. Keep in mind, however, that the color of the walls should not clash with the shades of the tiles and bathroom fixtures.

People who live in apartments may not have the options to renovate as extensively and as creatively as you did. So, bravo to that. You’re quite detailed about your renovations, and I like that. It’s always good to read about people who take their home renovations into their own hands, instead of relying on blind faith (a decorator and a contractor). Good stuff. I’m into home improvement myself.

The old bathroom had no ventilation, causing consistently high humidity, and its galvanized steel pipes had corroded, saturating the floor around the tub and toilet areas and damaging the floor and subfloor. The couple’s highest priority was to create a durable bathroom that would remain mold-free. This meant proper detailing and rethinking plumbing, ventilation, and finishes. They also wanted to include as many environmental features and materials as their budget and the small space would allow. They chose a bathroom theme celebrating water and nature as works of art, and a style befitting an average suburban home, making it suitable for resale.

Despite traditionally being one of the smaller rooms in a home, you have a myriad of choices when renovating or remodeling bathroom features. Your remodeling project may include all or some of these features, so remember to plan where you invest your money wisely. This is by no means an exhaustive list of all the bathroom features available, but a quick guide to help familiarize you with some common remodeling components.
