You may spend a considerable amount of time in your bathroom but when it comes to remodelling, it is often the most overlooked and neglected area of the house. However, that should not be the case at all. The bathroom may not be the first thing people notice when they visit your house but that does not give you the liberty to disregard its importance. In fact, a clean and well-maintained bathroom goes a long way in defining the taste of its owner. Therefore, give your bathroom the importance it deserves by opting for a complete makeover.


Cool ideas to give your bathroom a brand new look:

A Shiny Floor:The floor is, undoubtedly, the most crucial part of any lavatory upgrade. Unfortunately, it is also the toughest part to change. So what are the options you have with regard to flooring? If durability is what you are looking for, a porcelain or natural stone tile with a healthy heat system can be a very smart choice. Since porcelain or natural stone tiles are difficult to hurt, you can expect them to last a lifetime or close to it at least. As for the radiant heat, it can help the floor in drying faster, thereby lessening the possibility of slips. If you want a more economic option, go for vinyl. However, it cannot promise you the permanence offered by porcelain or natural stone.

A Change in Countertops:One way in which you can make your small bathroom appear larger is by replacing your countertops. The safest bet, in this regard, is a statuary light white marble with a veining of thin grey. It not only keeps everything fresh and light but also adds a dash of luxury. Stone scrapyard or granite is also a smart choice. However, if your budget still cannot afford it, you can opt for Formica or laminates. The advantage of doing so is that there is no need to seal laminate against water and stains, which is not the case with porous natural stone.

Cabinet Refacing: While changing your bathroom’s cabinets can turn out to be quite expensive, giving them a coating of bright white lacquer can help you save a lot while upping the style quotient at the same time. Another feasible option is cabinet refacing which implies upgrading or replacing your drawer fronts and cabinet doors without making any alterations in the main cabinet structure.
