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.
It is important that you allot enough time when choosing the best black rugs for your bathroom. Carefully consider the design, the patterns, the color, and even the type of material used in creating the bathroom furnishings of your choice. An ugly lavatory is a blemish to prospective buyers or company. Of course there are few things that are important to a bathroom rug. You need to be able to easily clean it. It should not be susceptible to mold or mildew because of the high moisture content in a bathroom. The dyes need to be firmly set, and a rubber backing is great to prevent rotting and slippage. But remember a rubber backing will be ruined by the dryer so you will need to hang to dry.
The absolute opposite of a fitted bathroom, the shabby chic look is a mismatch of styles and products. You can even do the unexpected, like put a put a refrigerator in the corner. Nothing is expected to match and pipework and plumbing are on show rather than concealed. This style is best suited to those who have inherited a bathroom and want to update it a little rather than fork out on a brand new bathroom suite. The key to decoration is neutral tones with a few dark colors. For the walls choose a matte or flat wall paint. Pale golds and yellows work particularly well as does floral or check patterned wallpaper.
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.
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.
Small bathroom - includes corner shower stall, toilet and sink and typical dimensions are 6x6 feet. Childrens bathroom - can be a three-quarter bathroom or full bathroom depending on the size of your home and how many children you have. Childrens bathrooms should have plenty of storage and cubbies that are safe and colorful. If several kids will use the same bathroom, a wall or half wall between the toilet and the rest of the bathroom may be a good idea. Guest bathroom - can be a three-quarter bathroom or a full bathroom.
A complete bathroom overhaul. If nothing else is going to do it for you, there is always the final option of a complete overhaul of your existing bathroom. Tear everything out, right down to the bear studs, and completely redo the space. Of the bathroom remodeling projects we have discussed, this is potentially the most tedious, the most expensive and the most disruptive to you and your family. However, if done properly, you can create a perfect place for you to escape your everyday, and add thousands of dollars to the value of your home.
