Planning a loft bathroom
Has it come to the point where your loft bathroom needs planning? Are you tired of looking at it, but haven't the foggiest of ideas on where to start? A lot of us are in the same boat, we know it isn't right, but when it comes to doing anything about it, we are lost.
Bathroom planning starts with a great design. Without the design process, you will never really create a space you'll be happy with. Figure out what you like about your space and then get rid of the things you don't. It may sound easy, and in fact, it is when you have a place to start.
Maybe you like the way your floor looks, but hate your vanity, or the walls are looking a little outdated. Consider painting them with a neutral colour. I find that light shades are always better than going with something that is too bold. This is even more important if you plan on putting your home on the market. If your bathroom has too much personality, it will turn off any potential buyers.
Quite often a vanity that looks old and worn can be spruced up with fresh paint as well. Adding new hardware like door handles, hinges and new faucets can brighten up the place and make it look a lot better. New sinks, toilets or bathtubs can be quite costly, but replacing them with something new will quite often make your bathroom look really good.
The choice to go that route will often depend on what type of money you must spend on the project. If you're tight on funds, you may want to try and cut corners to save money. Repainting the fixtures is one way to create a new look without paying a high price. It will be something that you need to consider and if that works for you then, by all means, go for it.
Adding some decorative items to your wall space is a great way to make it look friendlier and give it a classier feel. Storage is also essential and needs to be addressed when remodeling a bathroom. Most people forget about it when they think of redoing the space. One thing I've learned over the years is that it's hard to have too much storage in a bathroom. Incorporating built-in shelves into empty wall space is a great way to get that extra storage without compromising the space in your room.
Mix lighting with wall-mounted mirror/s that can add depth and dimension. Take care though that mirrors need a lot of attention in cleaning and de-misting. Natural light from windows is as important to replace old drafty windows with larger light inviting modern ones that are also energy efficient and allow for that enlarged space feeling. Artificial and candlelight and feel provide that look and feel that you may dream of and only believe exist in movies.
The best practice for bathroom planning is to create a plan and stick to it. If you take the time to create a design that works you'll end up having a bathroom you'll enjoy.
