If you’re buying a home for sale in Orlando or any of the surrounding communities, one of the biggest things you’re probably looking forward to is turning it into your own space – and what better way to do that than to start with the bathroom?
Check out these seven tips for creating the perfect bathroom in your new home.
7 Tips to Creating the Perfect Bathroom in Your New Home
You don’t always have to hire a professional decorator to pull off the perfect design style. These seven tips will help you transform an ordinary bathroom into an extraordinary one:
- Replace the light fixtures
- Add art
- Redecorate your existing tile
- Maximize storage
- Redo the floor
- Use a wall mural in the shower
#1. Replace the light fixtures.
You don’t have to stick with ordinary overhead lighting in your new home. Wall sconces may be a perfect addition, if you’re able to rework the wiring – but if you’re not, there are plenty of amazing light fixtures (like this, this and this) that can modernize the whole space.
#2. Add art.
Find some treated canvas prints you like and add them to your lavatory for a luxury look. You can also put together a wall gallery featuring objects, like starfish, or use a wall sculpture like this to add serious panache.
#3. Redecorate your existing tile.
You don’t have to rip out all the tile to get a fresh look in the bathroom, although you can – just remember it’s a big project. What you can do instead is use self-adhesive tile to dress up what’s already there without damaging the surface behind it.
#4. Maximize storage.
Even if you have a large bathroom, adding pull-out drawers to your cabinetry can make a big difference in the way the space feels. You can also invest in a few floating wall shelves or wall-mounted baskets to make the most of the space you have.
#5. Redo the floor.
While you may not be able to tackle this project yourself, it’s definitely worth it – redoing the floor can transform the whole bathroom. Think about vinyl floor planks or stone tiles to head out of the ordinary and into the extraordinary.
#6. Use a wall mural in the shower.
Whether you choose a waterproof print to mount in your shower, have it professionally painted, or choose peel-and-stick décor, adding a wall mural to one wall of your shower can be a spectacular way to add style and pizzazz to your lavatory. Check this out for inspiration.
#7. Paint your walls and your vanity.
You don’t have to have white walls and a wood-colored vanity. It’s your bathroom, so choose a palette of colors you love and dive right in! Pro tip: Paint the vanity a shade or two darker than the walls for a dramatic effect (and to break up the monotony, even if you’re using a vibrant color).
