Bathroom Remodeling Ideas / The Finishing Touches
So you have finally finished that bathroom remodeling project by installing the last tile square, and applied that final coat of paint. The plumbing has been buttoned up and everything looks to be just how you pictured it in your head before you started. So where do you go from here? Do you have any other ideas that didn’t quite make it in? One thing you can consider doing is to add some small finishing touches to the room that will enhance all the hard work you just did, and bring the atmosphere to a whole new level.
We decided to put together a small list of bathroom remodeling ideas to really give the room a personal touch, and finish the room completely:
1 – Hang a shelf on a wall, and use it to display your collectibles or other decor.
2 – Fill antique bowls or shaving mugs with toiletries, such as soaps or bath salts.
3 – If you have a larger room, try adding a wicker chair or similar piece of outdoor furniture.
4 – Be generous in your use of mirrors on the walls. They will make the room appear larger and more open.
5 – Colorwash your wood cabinets to give them character.
6 – Try applying a colored stain to revive those old wood cabinets. Use a light-colored stain for the background and then apply a brighter color to some of the drawers to create a contrast.
7 – Always have fresh flowers or flowering plants on hand for fragrance and appearance. Put them in an old watering can or vase.
8 – Should your bathroom have a linen closet with a door, try replacing that door with a framed trellis.
9 – Frame in your mirror over the sink with tiles, perhaps alternating colors or styles in them.
10 – Install a brand new shower curtain. A cloth curtain will be more expensive, but it will also look nicer. You can also try a nylon or cotton curtain as long as you find one in a suitable color. Try to avoid anything plastic as it will look cheap and probably won’t last as long. Plus any stains will be magnified on it.
11 – With a multi-colored curtain, choose new linens in colors that reflect those of the curtain. For a striped shower curtain, get some solid towels in coordinating colors. Try not to match the pattern exactly because it will take away from the rest of the room.
These are just a few things we thought of. Most important thing is to be creative and experiment until you are happy. Your bathroom will be frequented by many visitors, and can become a statement of your unique personality or style. Don’t let any self doubt deter you from having the bathroom of your dreams. And even though the bulk of the work is done, any new bathroom remodeling ideas can be implemented at a later date. Consider your home a work in progress and have fun doing it.
