Your Steps to a Heavenly Bathroom

Aug 8, 2008
If you are considering changing the current look of your bathroom, one simple tip to be recommended is to simply check out other people's bathroom to get some ideas. Who knows? You might find something in your friend or neighbor's bathroom that will catch your fancy and get some helpful bathroom remodeling tips from them as well. Of course you may buy those home décor magazines--even old issues. There might be a design that you would be interested to incorporate in your own bathroom.

Depending upon your taste or mood, you may opt for bathroom with a refreshing look that will definitely pump up your energy on lazy Sunday mornings or a relaxing, soothing ambiance for those tired nights or a general look that is clean, modern and sophisticated. Delegate "pamper areas" in your bathroom which is a specific spot wherein your can just do all those sort of body pampering like where you can have your own home-made or ready-made mixtures and aromatherapy oils for foot/nail/hand/body spa. Aside from installing a low-emitting bulb in the bathtub area, you may place a candelabrum and burn some scented candles while you relax on a luxurious bath. Provide small benches or rounded chairs so you can take a seat while fixing yourself in front of the mirror and it may also aid you when you apply lotion in your legs or when you shave them. Better, buy foldable or collapsible chairs for easy storage and to save space.

Speaking of space, there are plastic, see-through (for easy location and no need to label the containers) containers with covers wherein you can put various bathroom stuffs like toiletries and shower supplies, towels, toilet cleaners, cosmetics, equipment (like your blow dryer) and spa treatment materials and so on. That way your bathroom will not look cluttered. You may simply stack up the containers in spot. There are a variety of colors to choose from and pick the one that will complement with the color of your bathroom. Still, you may buy have them in different colors for a more vibrant look of the bathroom.

Most people would want their bathroom to look bigger thus better. If you feel that containers will only limit your space, you can have cabinets instead. The best ones are wall-mounted cabinets. They will make your bathroom look bigger and wider. They also save more room. If you have beautifully designed tiles, these wall-mounted cabinets are therefore useful. Place a wide mirror in your bathroom to give it that extra illusion of extensiveness. You can also put two mirrors in if you like.

If you happen to share a bathroom, there are some useful tips you might want to use. To avoid petty arguments especially in mornings, you can have sinks for the both of you. Separating the toilet and the shower is also a good idea, as this will enable the both of you to go on with your businesses in the mornings without interrupting each other. You can also install clear or frosted glass for the bathroom shower and a showerhead that is either permanently attached or can be hand held, to save more time. They must be able to function for hot and cold water.

You should always have your lightings set on the side or top of your mirror. You it is too far, you might not be able to see yourself clearly thus giving you a hard time shaving or applying makeup. If you wish to have more natural lighting in, seat the dressing table nearer to a window. Apart from this, you will be able to have fresh air in so your bathroom will also be well ventilated and odor free.

For a more modern or unique look, you may consider having a folding door for your bathroom to save space. As part of the remodeling as well, change the color of your bathroom but try to stick up to two colors only that will blend with each other (like midnight blue and aquamarine or olive green and avocado) so that the room will not be "confusing" to look at. You may also opt for wallpaper which definitely comes in more exciting colors with matching designs.

Creativity and effort on your part will bear its fruit when you see the outcome of your brand new and exciting bathroom. It will be simply breathtaking.
