The bathroom is the workhorse of the house. With constant daily use, it’s important to update it if you are not ready for a professional Vancouver bathroom remodel.
The right lighting fixture, combined with the perfect wall colour can do wonders in affecting the mood of a bathroom. You can choose cool-toned lightbulbs with a modern fixture to reflect against cool coloured walls for a fresh space, or a warm lightbulb with warm wall colours to create a homey, comforting atmosphere.
Wall Colour Refresh
Pick the lighter colours for the large sections of the bathroom walls and darker, richer, more luxurious colours for the accents. Light colours open up a space and make it feel larger while dark colours will close in on a space and make it feel smaller. Even a few tones different than your current wall colour can make a big difference.
Installing framed artwork or photographs in the bathroom is not something we usually think of as a way to refresh it. You can buy canvas prints that are treated to be water-resistant, or have a local printer blow up your favourite photo or artwork into a large proportion piece for your bathroom. Larger prints or multiple small ones create a great visual impact.
People oftentimes forget that it is so easy to incorporate a refresh with the simple change of hardware like towel bars, drawers pulls and cupboard knobs. Even toilet paper holders can be replaced. Make sure to switch them out with screws and screw holes of similar sizes.
There are many DIY flooring options you can choose from which will allow you to cut back costs of professional services and pull up old flooring to replace it with fresh vinyl. This can make a big, impressive difference in the first impression and feel of your bathroom.
We don’t often think about textiles when it comes to bathroom remodels, but when folded or even hanging and laid out on a towel bar, towels still create an impression. They are the finishing touches, the cherry on the cake, and the garnish on a cooked meal. Choose a solid colour or a fresh and modern colour pattern that matches, and throw away or donate your old mismatched towels.
A shower curtain almost takes up an entire wall’s worth of space. Match it to your floor mat, towels or other accent and accessory features.
