Go All Out: How to Dramatically Renovate Your Bathroom
When it comes to the bathroom, it’s the one space where you spend the most time in your house. But when your bathroom is drab and bland, it can become more of a nightmare rather than a place for you to comfortably relax upon your porcelain throne.
Making drastic renovations to your bathroom can elevate it from a bland, depressing space to a place that even a king would kick you out of just to use it. Here are some tips and ways to take your bathroom from bland to stunning.
Move the toilet
When it comes to a bathroom, the first thing you don’t want to see when you open it up is the toilet and the reason for that is simple. When the bathroom door is left open, if you have guests over the first thing they’re going to see is your porcelain throne. Which is one of the least pleasant things to look at in any bathroom. Having your toilet as the main focal point of your bathroom kills the mood as you go from room to room in your home. So instead move it so that it’s no longer the main centerpiece of the bathroom. Large projects like this will require the help of a local plumber, so unless you know what you’re doing, don’t attempt it on your own.
If the bathroom in your home was built in a time period where everything wasn’t clean and simple lines and aesthetics as many modern trends tend to go, leave it instead of ripping it out and replacing it with something that’s trendy. Vintage finishes and styles in a bathroom have their charms. Leaving behind the vintage finishes in your bathroom makes it feel like a unique feature, that not only saves you a bit of money but can become a history lesson for guests.
