Our bathrooms play a huge role in our daily routine. It’s where we often start and end our day. Remodeling the master bathroom takes a lot of effort and there are many things to consider. If you are overwhelmed or feeling confused on what to do and how to approach this type of dilemma, here are 5 tips to help you improve your Master Bathroom:
Tip 1: Choose and Decide your Style/Aesthetic
Before renovating your bathroom, it is important that you have already decided how it would look in the end. Have a clear idea on what you want to include in your bathroom and develop a layout. Identify where you would want to place your vanity, shower and tub, the lighting, flooring, cabinets, etc. and decide what design you would want to adapt – timeless or trendy.
You have to also make sure that all of the components in your bathroom – such as the cabinet colors, hardware, accessories, etc. – cohesively flows and does not stray from your preferred design and color scheme to avoid making it look cheap.
Tip 2: Storage – Make neatness a priority
Nobody wants to start and end their day with a messy bathroom. Consider adding more storage to help you store your toiletries properly and keep them away from plain sight. This will make your area appear more organized and expensive.
When deciding how to add fixtures to your master bathroom, you should always consider the space and work with it. Minimize bulky storage and you can opt for hooks and built-in.
You can also use hooks to keep your towels and robes organized. You may place it on the backside of the door or unused space of the wall. You may also include built-ins – like medicine cabinets (for toiletries and medicines), toilet paper holders, and soap dishes – try building in your walls for storage to maximize the space.
In addition, you should also consider your vanity. Too big and it becomes a nuisance and too small would mean less storage and space. Consider your bathroom’s space as this could be the primary storage for your toiletries. You should also take into consideration the material that the vanity is made of or issues on maintaining it may arise.
Tip 3: Lighting – Directs the Vibe
A space’s lighting affects the aura the room exudes and how huge space is. It is also capable of affecting one’s mood. To make your space appear more expensive and larger, include your bathroom’s lighting as a priority as this can dramatically change how your current bathroom looks.
In order to incorporate the appropriate lighting in your bathroom renovation, plan a lighting scheme with your designer. Given ceiling lighting is a must for your bathroom, you may also incorporate scones on the vanity mirror to give you more lighting when you do your make up, shave your beard, etc. – we need to see our faces properly to avoid injury and uneven blush. You may also layer decorative, accent, ambient, and task lighting to give your space personality and the vibe that you want.
Tip 4: Splurge on Durable and (a tad bit) Expensive Materials
If you want to make your bathroom appear luxurious, if you have the budget, splurge on a few higher end materials – your flooring, ceiling, countertops, etc. – as this will definitely affect how your bathroom appears.
Another thing to remember is affordable does not always mean durable. Although there are some that are both durable and affordable, if you have budget, invest in your bathroom essentials – flooring, ceiling, lighting, vanity, tub, shower, and toilet – make sure that they last and cost less to maintain.
Tip 5: Ventilation – No one wants mold and mildew
Do not neglect proper ventilation when remodeling your master bathroom. Mold and mildew build up is both disgusting and can cause damage to your walls, cabinetry, and floors. This will make your effort to upgrade your bathroom useless and would require another renovation. You should remember to install an exhaust fan or window to help dry up your bathroom after use.
