Ways to Brighten Up A Dark Bathroom

By | Bathroom Design, Bathroom Remodeling, Bathroom Remodeling Tips, Bathroom tips | No Comments

Your bathroom can be a source of comfort in your home. It is a great place to sit down for a long, hot soak at the end of a long day. To keep the calming and inviting vibe of your bathroom, it is important to find the perfect lighting scheme. Fortunately, today’s homeowners have more options than ever before when it comes to turning any bathroom into a light-filled retreat. A few simple steps are all it takes to create an elegant and modern space:

Painting the Room

One of the best ways to brighten up the bath is by painting it. Paint is easy to use and easy to apply. Think about warm and sunny colors. Shades of yellow and peach are a good choice in a room with less light. Neutral shades like white and grey are always a good choice as well. White is easy to keep clean and exudes light. Make sure to choose paint that is easy to wipe clean. Good choices are high gloss and flat types of paint as they will add additional light.

Consider Your Lighting OptionsWays to Brighten Up A Dark Bathroom-shutterstock_118661548-1024x823

Natural light is ideal whenever possible. If you have a window in the room, consider the use of frosted glass for privacy that still allows in light. As the sun goes down, artificial lighting is essential. Look for lighting that has a soft and warm feel. A single overhead feature is a good choice. This can be supplemented with other forms of lighting. A lit vanity is a useful thing to help occupants with morning rituals such as putting on makeup and attending to their hair.

The Right Accessories

Another area to think about are the right kind of accessories. Accessories offer yet more opportunity to bring in light. Use mirrors to add additional color and make the room seem bigger. Other surfaces can also be mirrored as well. Think about using a garbage pail in the room along with large metal cabinet fixtures. A set of shiny metal shelving is an ideal option that allows for practical storage. Keep stored linens and shower curtains to lighter colors such as white or pastel shades for an even brighter feel.

Flooring Possibilities

Flooring is another area that can be used bring in more light. Marble flooring is easy to clean and comes in shades of warm white and brown. Marble can also be used for the sink and the shower and bath area. Tiles are another excellent bath flooring choice. Tiles will not be harmed by water or humidity. Consider using tiles in shades of white or lighter colors along the floor and along the walls. Add personality with the use of a custom-made mosaic.

Overall, careful consideration of your bath decor scheme can yield pleasingly warm results. The experts at Luxury Bath can help perfect your lighting scheme and more. Contact us today to make your dream bathroom a reality.

 

Organization And Storage Ideas for Small Bathrooms

By | Bathroom Accessories, Bathroom Design, Bathroom Remodeling Tips, Bathroom tips, homeowners | No Comments

A small bathroom presents special challenges when it comes to storage. You need to find a place for small things like toilet paper, makeup, and razors while offering enough room for towels and other bulky items. Fortunately, with a few simple organizational tricks, you can find ways to fit those items into even the smallest bathrooms.

Shelving

Place a shelf right above the sink. You have a few items that you use at least once a day. Things like toothbrushes, toothpaste, hair brushes, razors, tweezers, etc. A small shelf above the sink and below the mirror is a perfect place to store these commonly used items.

Add a cabinet or shelves above the toilet. If there is one space that you need to use in a bathroom, it is the area above the toilet. Half the wall from the top of the toilet to the ceiling is available for a cabinet, open shelves, or towel racks.

Replace a mirror with one that has shelves included. A few decades ago, medicine cabinets were standard in most homes. These sturdy mirrors had shelves behind a mirrored door. Now, many homes have flat mirrors. The good news is that you can replace these flat mirrors with modern stylish ones that include the shelving.

Get Creative!

Organization And Storage Ideas for Small Bathrooms-shutterstock_560975488-1024x683

Use spice racks and hanging baskets. The wall space around your sink and tub is ideal for storing smaller items, so they are handy to find, but not cluttering the sink or tub surround. Spice racks and hanging baskets allow you to maximize your vertical storage and keep your space organized.

Put hooks on the wall. Another way to maximize your vertical storage is with hooks. Towels, brushes, robes, and bags are just a few things you can hang off a hook. With removable plastic hooks available, no surface is off limits for these handy items.

Utilize All Of Your Space

Don’t forget the back of the door. Walk into your bathroom and close the door. Look at the back of the door. There is a major blank slate available there. Hooks, racks and hanging baskets will give you the stockpile space you need.

Use the area above the door. If you look up above your bathroom door, you will see a dead space, perfect for storing extra towels and toilet paper. A simple open shelf is easy to install and will get things up and out of the way. You can go as plain or as fancy as you want with the shelf and hardware choice.

Maximize your under sink cache. If you have a sink cabinet, you need to ensure you are using all the space available. Plastic drawers and adjustable shelves can give you precious space for seldom-used items that you still need to access on occasion.

These simple organization ideas will help you maximize your bathroom potential. If your small bathroom just still isn’t doing the trick, the experts at Luxury Bath can help you remodel a brand new bathroom. Give us a call today!

 

Updating Your Bathroom Decor for Spring

By | Bathroom Accessories, Bathroom Design, Bathroom Maintenance, Bathroom Remodeling Tips, Bathroom tips, Full Bathroom Remodel, homeowners, Luxury Bath News, Tips for the Home | No Comments

While you make time for de-cluttering, cleaning and storing winter clothes, welcome spring by sprucing up your bathroom, too! With new décor, colors, and creativity, a dull area becomes a dazzling paradise. Take a peek at our tips below to get a fresh spring look in your bathroom!

A Dash of Color

Nothing says springtime like bright colors. Get rid of black, white, brown, gray, beige, navy blue, and neutral shades and aim for colorful bath decor. Mint, yellow, red, pink, green, and purple shades are great standout colors to incorporate into the room. If changing the wall color to be brighter is too much for you, however, use bright pops of color in the vanity, artwork, or vases to get the same feel.

Get Decorative

Designs and knickknacks add personality to any room. Stripes, shapes, and patterns on towels, shower curtains, window curtains, bathroom accessory sets, mirrors, and artwork enhance that personality. Embrace the shape of the decorative piece (likely a square or rectangle) in multiple areas to create balance in the space. Quirky accent pieces such as artwork, sculptures, or trinkets tell a story through their detailed designs.

Elements of Nature

Updating Your Bathroom Decor for Spring-shutterstock_1006165813-1024x684

Flowers, plants, and beach pieces will give a spa-like, natural element of the area. It makes the room feel fresh, intimate, and special. Flowers in vases, potted plants, seashells, and conch shells are examples of different natural elements to add to your space. Accessories made of brick, stone, or wood work well also. You could even add a reclaimed wood wall or shelves to give some texture to the room.

Add Storage Solutions

It’s impossible to have too much storage space in bathrooms. When shelving is too full to store unused items, portable storage space may be your solution. Portable storage items make bath items easy to access while being stylish. Baskets, bath storage racks, shower caddies, and countertop organizers are great storage options. Larger rooms can add small bath cabinets, over the toilet storage, and ladder shelves for more  space.

Mirrors on the Wall

A mirror is a staple in bathrooms for enlarging the room, so updating the mirror with a new frame will make it pop. If you have only space for small mirrors, we recommend adding multiple to create symmetry. You could even replace one large mirror with two smaller ones to enlarge the space and allow for more creativity. Pair mirrors with sunlight and new lighting fixtures, and the mirror-light combo will illuminate the space.

Light it Up

Let light brighten the area through natural and indoor light. You may even want to replace darker shades or curtains with white or see-through ones if you can. Adding bright, new light fixtures help a space appear brighter and refreshed as well. That could even become a fun spring DIY project – painting old light fixtures to give them a new look!

As you can see, paint jobs and renovation overhauls aren’t necessary to turn bathrooms from drab to fab. Swapping home decor to and from the area will have a major impact on the appearance and vibe without spending thousands to achieve a similar result. Even if Ohio’s weather isn’t ready to welcome spring gracefully, welcome it in the bathroom using accessories.

If you’re looking to give your bathroom a complete or partial update besides fresh paint and accessories, contact us today to get started!

How Do I Create a Luxurious Guest Bathroom?

How Do I Create a Luxurious Guest Bathroom?-aaron-huber-401151-e1513108078972Many homes have guest bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms. However, because this room is not continuously used, it can quickly become dull and outdated. Fortunately, it is not as difficult as it may seem to transform a lackluster guest bathroom into a luxurious, welcoming space for house guests. The suggestions offered below will make this project a bit less daunting:

Vessel Sinks and Spa Showers

To create a modern, luxurious guest bath, consider the addition of a vessel sink or vanity, and a spa shower. Vanities made from bamboo or natural wood are currently popular among many homeowners. A spa shower featuring a rainforest shower head is particularly luxurious and will impress any guest. The spa shower and vessel sink will add comfort and style, and the combination will create an overall welcoming presence in the room.

Skylights

Natural light is lacking in a lot of bathrooms, as windows in a bathroom create privacy concerns. However, if the guest bathroom is located on the home’s second floor, a skylight can easily solve this problem, as well as add a luxurious touch to the room. Skylights also instantly modernize a room’s appearance, while providing extra light as an additional benefit.

Suspended Fixtures

Suspended fixtures are accessories that can update the look of any room, particularly a bathroom. For instance, if your goal is a luxurious and unique guest bath, a toilet and sink can be affixed to the wall in such a way that they appear suspended in midair. Suspended shelves and frameless glass shower doors could also give the room a contemporary look.

Framed Mirrors

Mirrors have become bathroom essentials. They are both decorative and practical. Framed mirrors are a great option when creating a luxurious bathroom, and the styles and designs available are limitless.

Fresh Paint

Brightening the room with a fresh coat of paint, such as today’s popular pastel shades, instantly breathes new life into the room. This is a simple way to change the feel of the room and set the stage for new décor.

Popular Accessories

Accessories are also important to update. Replacing old, dull fixtures with new, modern ones is a great place to start. If you are not sure where to start, items with gold finishes are currently popular, as are fixtures with colored enamel coatings. Natural wood and live edge accents are also popular.

Hotel-style towel racks are also making a splash this season. Because these towel racks are stackable and hold multiple towels, they also save space, which makes them a good choice for small guest bathrooms.

Due to their infrequent use, guest bedrooms and bathrooms are frequently overlooked. However, when the time comes to update your home’s guest bathroom, the tips mentioned above will ensure luxurious results that will provide welcoming comfort to every guest.

Decorating Your Bathroom for the Holidays

Decorating Your Bathroom for the Holidays-tall-snowmen-holiday-shower-curtain-11-233x300When doing your holiday decorating at home, don’t forget about the bathroom decor. There are many fun, festive, and easy ways to dress up this space for the holiday season. A few simple touches can transform it into a cheerful spot. Here are some ideas for decorating your bathroom for the holidays:

Festive Linens

A very easy way to bring the spirit of the season to the bathroom is by changing out the linens, rug, and shower curtain. Choose holiday prints and patterns for hand towels and bath towels. There are many design options to select from for shower curtains, as well. You could also keep it simple by choosing a color scheme like red and green or red and white.

Add Easy to Clean Items

Select decorations to place on top of the toilet and the counters that are easy to clean. For busy bathrooms that get a lot of use, it’s important to be able to keep them clean, especially if you’re hosting guests. Use that as a guide to choosing decor items. Decorations with smooth ceramic surfaces can be wiped down and dusted quickly, which is a must in a bathroom. Avoid items with a lot of glitter, or items made out of fabric. Don’t clutter the counters with items, but do add some charm to a few select holiday pieces.

Don’t Forget the Scents

Add a candle or an air freshener with a sweet holiday scent such as a spruce tree or warm vanilla sugar. It will bring that extra touch to the bathroom, where an air freshener is always needed. A lit candle on your countertop can be the perfect accent in this space when hosting family and friends for holiday gatherings.

When dressing up your home for the holidays, take the time to select decor for the bathroom. It’s a small space, but can easily add to the holiday charm.

How to Make Your Bathroom Compliment Your Home’s Decor

How to Make Your Bathroom Compliment Your Home's Decor-bathroom-1597027_1280-300x200If you aren’t carrying your design sense and decorating skills into the bathroom, you’re missing an opportunity to showcase your style. It’s a small space that can make a statement, enhancing the overall look of the rest of the interior. When doing a remodeling project in the bathroom, keep these tips in mind on how to make space compliment your home decor:

Color Scheme

You don’t have to match each room in order to get a great look, but the colors that you choose for the walls should flow together. Select a color scheme for the bathroom that doesn’t clash with the surrounding rooms, but complements them. You can add more specific details with other colors, such as with the shower curtain and the linens. Keep the wall colors similar in tone to the rooms closest to the bathroom.

Don’t be Afraid to Decorate

Don’t be afraid to use decor items in your bathroom. You aren’t limited to functional items and wall art when it comes to decorating. If you have to shelve, add a few little touches to them that are purely decorative. When space is limited, you may have to limit the amount of decor you can use. Add your chosen decorations to the vanity, window sill, and other surfaces. You could also include fresh flowers and greenery, as well. This will give the room a natural, airy appeal. Simple, stylish pieces that are similar to what you’re displaying in other rooms are ideal.

Give It Personality

When the rest of your home is beautifully decorated, don’t leave the bathroom out. Give it personality with carefully chosen details, colors, and textures. The bathroom, whether it’s a master bath or a powder room, is a blank canvas that you can dress up in your personal style to compliment and accent the interior design of your whole home.

5 Ways to Add Personality to Your Bathroom

5 Ways to Add Personality to Your Bathroom-photo-1507426224168-cc2fefe22fc4-197x300Although it may be a smaller space in the home, your bathroom’s design shouldn’t be overlooked. This room gives you an opportunity to showcase your style with simple touches. By decorating your bathroom, you can make it your own. Here are 5 ways to add personality to your bathroom:

Paint Color

Be bold and choose a color that you truly love. You can always find accessories that will complement or match the color on the walls. Don’t be afraid to opt for a color that you wouldn’t use in another room in the home.

Decorations

From framed artwork to functional baskets, you can add decorations to the bathroom for a stylish look. Consider changing out your decor each season. Hand towels, the shower curtain, and simple accessories on countertops are easy ways to dress up the decor.

Try Wallpaper

If you want to make a big splash on one wall, consider wallpaper. There are so many beautiful designs to choose from today, and they can give you an elegant, modern look. Try using it on the wall with a vanity to create a focal point in the bathroom.

Hardware and Fixtures

Instead of using standard hardware and fixtures, opt for something unique. You can find a wide variety of bathroom fixtures online, so there’s no need to settle for something basic and boring. From the shower head to drawer pulls, select designs that truly speak to your personal style.

Tile Patterns and Colors

Rather than settling for plain tiles laid out in a basic pattern, consider trying something colorful and creative. You can create a unique look with detailed tile work. Even something as simple as a single row of colored tiles added into a basic subway design can bring an original look to the room.

Bathrooms don’t have to be basic and boring. They’re a smaller room in the home that can have big personality. With these ideas, you’ll be able to breathe new life into an ordinary bathroom and show off your personality in the space.
