The most important upgrade you can make in your bathroom involves lighting. A Swedish study found that lighting paired with the right color affects mood. Changing out your lighting is not difficult or expensive to do but makes a bathroom look fresher and larger.
Tile is frequently used in bathrooms for many reasons. It’s aesthetically pleasing it reflects light it’s durable it’s easy to clean and it’s a simple way to freshen up the space. And options abound for bathroom tile ideas from material to implementation. Tile halfway up the wall to create wainscoting use classic white subway tile tile the entire wall create a 4-6 inch border or combine multiple style elements using whichever material you like.
If all else fails to pique your interest incorporate a little color from nature. Whether they’re real or synthetic colorful or simply green a few plants can go a long way to add that pop of color into your bathroom.
Tile is a good way to make the space look polished and to revamp a bathroom without doing a major overhaul. Keep in mind that the grout between tiles can become grimy if it’s not cleaned properly and regular maintenance is important in preserving an aesthetic that looks fresh and not grungy.
Though you might not want or even use a bath tub every home should have one to appease buyers who dream of a spa tub or those with young children (or dogs!). Take advantage of the shower/tub area to define zones in the room and create an accent wall by changing up the tile you use.
A bath mat or area rug can infuse color into the space and also has a functional purpose in bathrooms that include a tub or shower. Choose a color that ties into with the rest of your accent shades for a truly cohesive look.
