Based on your budget, the span of time you have, and the size of your bathroom and its current state, you have several options for remodeling your bathroom: Do a surface-level bathroom remodeling. This is an option when your bathroom fixtures, the knobs on the faucets and such, are still in good condition but your bathtub and/or your shower stall is looking a little shabby. When thats the case, a surface-level bathroom remodeling can give you the feel of a whole new bathroom, without the price tag. It is a great project to take on if you dont have the budget for a complete overhaul just yet. The rule of thumb to follow here is, "Cover, dont replace." Replacement adds to the time and costs of a remodel because you are paying to have what is there already removed. Covering uses the structure of what is already there and simply gives it a new face. Some of the not-so-pricey items you need to invest in when doing a surface-level bathroom remodeling include prefabricated shower units, bathtub or shower liners, bathtub refinishing, and easy-to-install wainscoting.
Check, floral or plaid curtains are preferred over roller blinds, and shutters, though rare in England, offer a great form of privacy as well as adding to the country effect. Wood plays a big part in this look, and almost all furniture works well in this setting, especially beech, maple, ash and oak vanity units and cabinets. Either tiles or wooden floors can be used. Tiles should be a rustic colour, and can be used to create elaborate mosaics. Wooden floors should be varnished to match the furniture. Decorating may see a stenciled motif used as a border, and the technique of rubbing paint on the walls with a sponge gives the room that worn natural look.
Be American - Make your bathroom bigger.If you are feeling patriotic, and have the space to spare, you can extend the area of your toilet and bath. It is as American as apple pie. If you only have a shower stall, you can tear down a non-load-bearing wall and give yourself a proper bathtub. If you already have a bathtub, punch out some closet space from the next room, and give yourself a whirlpool tub. Whatever size bathroom you have got, there are always options for going bigger.
As with the country and traditional bathrooms, cast iron baths are a must. Either a roll-top or slipper bath will do, and although you dont want holes or rust, the more dilapidated it looks the better. Even consider running sandpaper over the paint work and claw feet. It is always worth looking out for old fittings at antique shops and car boot sales. Counter top basins are highly recommended in this setting, and the look out for extremely unusual decorated designs. Place it on a washstand or run-down vanity unit. Add unique ornaments and antique framed mirrors.
