Bath Tubs and Sinks: Choices for Modern Bathrooms

Aug 17, 2007
So, you want to transform your bathroom and give it an elegant and modern ambience. Well rest assured; you can jazz up your bathroom without spending a fortune. If your budget allows and you have decided to remodel the bathroom, then you may want to begin by purchasing new fixtures such as a new bath tub, sink, and commode. However, if you are content with your fixtures and just want to redecorate then you will be pleasantly relieved to find that you can redecorate your bathroom while remaining in your determined budget. Using various textures, lighting, colors, and creativity can do wonders to convert your old bathroom into an exquisite blend of style and sophistication.

Varieties and styles of bathroom fixtures abound and if you are content with your choices of bathtub and sink, then let them be the basis for your interior-decorating plan. First, determine if there are any striking features of your tub or sink. For example, are they antique, does your tub have claw feet, what color are they, what are they made out of? Answering these questions will give you plenty of starting points to begin your decorating scheme. A good idea is to put all of the answers to the above questions down in a notebook. This may help you brainstorm some decorating ideas and strategies. By using the best features of the fixtures already in your bathroom, you can simply redecorate with items that will accentuate the undying fixtures that are already in place.

If your bathtub is antique, then let this be the motivation for your decorating scheme. Also keep in mind lighting needs and color choices when determining your decorating plan. Certain materials will always add splendor to your bathroom and these include glass, crystal, marble, brass, and gold. If you would like to add tile but your budget won't allow you to completely retile then try purchasing a few expensive decorative tiles that you can add as a border in the room. This is a great way to add elegance while remaining in your target budget.

Your choice of lighting fixtures will greatly determine the overall effect of your bathroom. There are many options to choose from, such as mirrors that are surrounded with lights, overhead lights, making use of windows and natural lighting, and even hanging a crystal chandelier in the bathroom. You may even be interested in adding adjustable lighting so that you can dim the lights and take relaxing baths without the need for candles.
