With so many styles to choose from, a bathroom vanity can complement any decor. There are a wide range of sizes, finishes and styles of cabinetry to consider. Even the sink itself can be part of the bathroom design, with vessel sinks resting on top of the counter or a free-standing pedestal sink.
When updating a vanity, also consider lighting. New light fixtures can be installed quickly to brighten a dim room and create a design element.
The convenience of a walk-in shower is tough to beat, especially in a small space. If your bathroom remodel includes one, a clear glass shower enclosure allows the tile design inside to be featured. A curbless entry to the walk-in shower can open up your bathroom by eliminating dividing lines. This helps maintain continuity throughout the room.
Consider when updating your shower or tub, that even something as simple as a different shower curtains can spruce up a bathroom space in minutes. Additionally, installing grab bars in the tub or including a seat inside the shower are also worthy upgrades when it's time to remodel.
An antique claw-foot tub might not match your current decor but a freestanding tub can still fit in with your style. The crisp lines with a rectangular design or the smooth slopes on an oval tub can suit your soaking needs and also be the centerpiece of your bathroom oasis. When considering bathtubs, choose a model with fixtures either at an end or along its side depending on your existing plumbing to help keep the remodeling cost low.
A double vanity can look good even in small bathrooms but takes up a lot of space that might be better utilized. If additional storage space is just as important to you as the extra sink is, use upright cabinets as a linen closet for towels and toiletries. Selecting a vanity with drawers or open shelving beneath the sink can create storage solutions.
Show your creativity by replacing floor tile and wall tile. The choices of polished or textured, subtle or bold, patterned or solid and single- or multi-colored are just the beginning of your options. Modify the traditional brick pattern to install subway tile vertically, or consider a herringbone layout to add visual interest to simple tile designs.
