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 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.
The design of a contemporary oval bathtub can be beautifully exploited with the help of marble. This unique material is highly versatile and a black and white marble bathroom design might need a few wooden details to become warmer and more inviting. Adding some shelves and decorations upgrades the clean design and adds the owner’s perspective in the mix with the choice of decor. Just make sure you go over this 15 point checklist before starting your bathroom renovation.
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 simple mirror can get a glamorous update with the addition of backlighting. You can purchase mirrors with built-in lights or add them yourself to the mirror of your choosing. Illuminated mirrors are ideal for applying makeup and seeing your face in a detailed (but flattering) way. They’re great for bathrooms with low natural light. Just be sure that your lighting is soft not harsh or fluorescent.
Gather different sizes and/or styles of mirrors and hang them in a gallery-wall-style arrangement. Be sure to vary the mirrors so that they complement instead of compete against one another. Keep them all on one wall or you’ll risk a funhouse effect.
