Whether it’s for you, or for your significant other, making the long-overdue decision to remodel your home bathroom(s) is the best way to welcome in a new year. Why? Because bathrooms, like kitchens, are an integral facet of any home and should serve as a point of peace and sanctuary for us. Particularly during these unprecedented times, staying home more than usual has reminded us just how many updates and improvements we could stand to make on our homes. From kitchen remodeling to backyard landscaping, fresh paint, to furniture overhauls, this has been the year for home improvements for just about everybody. Updating your bathrooms, among other areas of the home, has a significant impact on your health, happiness, and your home’s future ROI.
Health and Harmony
Bathrooms are perhaps the most essential room in the house, aside from the kitchen. They are where we start and end our day, where we transform ourselves into a healthy, presentable version of ourselves for the world, and where we go to relax (hopefully!). For those of you who value alone-time and treating yourself to the finer things in life such as baths, pampering, and aromatherapy, the bathroom is the getaway sanctuary of choice, especially for those rearing children. Oftentimes, bathrooms are the only true escape away from a bustling home, needy family members and animals, and the general buzz of daily life. And what a perfect escape it is! Well, that is if your bathroom indeed sparks joy. Meaning that it’s updated, modern, comfortable, and clean. Unfortunately, most are unable to check all of these boxes! So, if you find that your bathroom is having a hard time meeting expectations, not to worry. We’ve got you covered with some bathroom remodeling hacks to improve and perfect your salle de bains.
Update the Framework
Sometimes all it takes to transform entire areas of the home is to simply update the framework, or the skeleton, so to speak. By replacing old, outdated doors, mirrors, and even the wall trim of your bathroom, you give the room an instant facelift, without the major cost and headache of involved construction. Select the perfect Sliding Pocket Doors and other sliding glass bathroom doors from The Sliding Door Company to modernize your bathroom with elegance and ease. Choose from countless configurations, handles, accessories, and even glass opacities and fine-tune the aesthetics to match your home and your desired look. Remove that old, thin wall-trim from your bathroom interiors and replace it with slightly thicker, fresh trim. To achieve that extra wow factor, make sure to paint them bright white so as to create a beautiful juxtaposition between the wall paint color and the starkness of the trim. Just doing these few upgrades will instantly update your favorite room in the house!
Freshen It Up
What’s the easiest (and quickest) way to update your interior environs while sticking to a budget? Fresh paint, of course! Start by picking a calming color for your bathroom, as you’ll want to feel as relaxed and at-ease as possible in your private getaway. Lavender, sage green, and light blue are all great colors for bathrooms. And if simplicity is more your style, go for a casual cream or a warm taupe. Then add in some meaningful framed art to the walls to add context and contrast. Next, sprinkle in a few outdoor elements to create artful intrigue to the space, such as a dried palm frond, or some Pampas grass in a pretty vase. Pick out some brand new bath mats and hand towels, et voila! You have a freshened up bathroom without spending weeks or months on this very necessary home improvement project. Light some candles, draw a bath, and let out that long-awaited “Ahhhh” you’ve been bottling up.
This New Year presents the perfect opportunity to update your interiors and scratch those “wants” off your to-do list. Give yourself (or your loved one) the gift of peace and tranquility in 2021 with a bathroom make-over. After the dust settles from your bathroom remodel, you’ll be ready to drink in the luxuriousness of a modernized oasis to relax and revel in.
