The rooms of the house are kind of like the members of the family who live there, each with its own identity. But when it comes to the bathroom, where everybody lives, too often the decorating style begins with the towels on the rack and ends with the bath mat on the floor. Why not give the bathrooms some character? Re-doing the look of the bathroom doesn’t mean that you’re going to have to shell out $10,000 to do the job. You can perform relatively inexpensive cosmetic surgery on your bathroom if you do the work yourself and call on your creativity. Ashley March has some tips that will help you turn your humdrum bathroom into a space that’s not just function, but fun.
Think old. Think vintage. Shopping for items to turn your bathroom into a place that boasts its own identity can take you everywhere from Craigslist to a local Habit for Humanity ReStore, where you can find sinks toilets, tubs, mirrors, and even doors. A new trend in bathrooms is the “dresser sink” in which the dresser top is cut out to make room for the sink to be inserted within and holes cut in back for the plumbing connections.
One of the most affordable, and most significant, ways to redo your bathroom is with new fixtures. The sink faucet, towel racks and light fixtures will make a dramatic difference in the look you’re striving to create. Ever thought of using Tupperware for lamps? Maybe you should. You can have an original look without straining your bank account.
Another way to give your bathroom a new look is to clean the grimy grout and re-caulk the tub and sink. It’s the kind of re-do that’s noticed right away and instantly brightens the bathroom. It’s not a glamorous task, but it’s affordable and easy, and you’ll love the final effect.
Paint costs less than tile, but it does take time because bathroom walls are busy with appliances, decorations, and fixtures. Because all that water and all those hot showers are a prime breeding ground for mold and mildew, you need to choose quality paint with a satin finish. Don’t forget the painter’s tape!
Now you have a bathroom with personality. Because as we all know, the bathroom is the real family room.
