Ideas for Your Bathroom Renovation

It's the age old question - how do I quickly, easily and cost-effectively renovate my bathroom? Well, as with anything, there are a million ways to do this, ranging from extremely expensive and complicated to simple, cheap fixes which can transform the feel of your bathroom.
We wanted to use this article to showcase a few of the ways you can remodel your bathroom with small design elements to create a huge change.
Paint One of the simplest and most effective change to a bathroom, or any room for that matter, is to cover it in a fresh coat of paint.
This can dramatically change the look and feel of any bathroom and make it seem like a more inviting and personal space.
Dark, warm colors can portray a serene, somber mood while light and vibrant yellows and blues can create an airy feel.
Depending on how bad of shape your bathroom is before you start your project, you may need to do some touch up work on the walls before you begin.
This may include sanding and drywall, most of which can be done by the weekend renovator.
For large holes or damage, it may be worth hiring a contractor to complete this for you.
Mirrors Changing our your old, square mirror to a more contemporary, shaped mirror can instantly update a bathroom.
This gives a more custom finished feel that will instantly raise the perceived value of the bathroom.
If you decide to go this route, you can either get your mirrors from big box stores or you can search through various second hand or antique shops.
There are some great values to be had out there if you are willing to devote a little bit of time to finding them.
Also, when you are considering how you are going to install your new mirror, take the time to consider how your light fixtures will be positioned and contribute to the overall design of the space.
Pedestal Sinks Antique pedestal sinks are quickly coming back into style for bathroom renovations.
These help provide a classic, yet modern look for your bathroom without breaking the bank.
I really like the look of these but always warm my customers to consider storage before committing to them.
Obviously, with a pedestal sink you are losing storage cabinets and drawers under the sink, so you should consider where those items will be stored.
A closet or other cabinets will work just fine.
Window Film Another great way to change the mood of your bathroom is using static cling window film.
There are a variety of options on the market, but these help provide privacy in the bathroom as well as sometimes create a better view.
These come in many options, with the most common being frosted privacy glass and decorative window film.
Either can be a great addition and create a custom feel at an affordable price.
