Create the bathroom of dreams with these small changes.
When it comes to your home, there are two rooms in the house that would be classed as the “big ticket” rooms when it comes to adding value to your home. One is the kitchen, because it is the hub of the home, and the other is the bathroom.
It might be less obvious, but more people look at the bathroom over other rooms in the home when it comes to buying. This is because it’s the room that might be costly to replace. It can also be a place to relax and unwind after a hard day. Therefore, how it looks can be a way of appealing to you and your family but also for the future when it comes to selling. With that in mind, I thought I would share with you some of the ways you could create the bathroom of dreams.
Install a new bathroom suite
One of the biggest changes that you can make is installing a brand new bathroom suite. Of course, it can also be one of the most expensive ways to do it as well. I guess it would all depend on the condition and look of your existing bathroom suite.
Ask yourself how much of a change this would make. If you already have a white bathroom suite, replacing it might not be an option. Instead look at redoing the grouting and sealant, replacing taps and other fixtures. You’d be amazed how much this can transform a bath.
If it does need replacing, then make sure you enlist the help of professionals like Abbots Plumbing and Heating to help install it properly. With all the complication of pipes and the type of bathroom you are installing, it is always advisable to have an expert fit it for you.
Make subtle changes with colour
If you have a white suite, try adding splashes of colour in the accessories. You could consider adding different colours into the room to make it feel freshened up. A theme or colour change can make a big difference to your bathroom suite.
It might be something as simple as coloured towels and accessories, or you might want to add a colour to the walls if you have that opportunity to do so. Other things to consider would be pictures on the wall, especially if they are water related like holiday snaps at the beach or in the pool.
Create the spa-like experience on a budget
A bathroom is often a place where you can relax and unwind. A bathroom of dreams needs a spa like feel. Water can really help soothe your mind. Many people enjoy sitting in the bath and allowing the water to calm your senses. But you could take things one step further and create a spa like experience in your own bathroom.
Consider things like candles, even scented specifically with relaxing oils, and some spa like music There are applications you can download on your phone to help you recreate the atmosphere. Lower the lighting, and incorporate greenery. You could even invest in a new robe and towels just for the occasion.
Change one big thing
Finally, if you want to make a change but can’t afford the expense of a new bathroom then making just one change could be the way forward. Maybe the flooring or the tiles. It would add just enough of a change to make a bathroom feel brand new.
I hope that these tips help you to create your bathroom of dreams.
