Taking on a redecorating project can be a lot of fun and it can also be a challenge. We are here to help you along the way. There are many simple ways to update the look of your bathroom and stay on budget. By changing the vanity, adding a new mirror, and new light fixtures will increase the value of your home, while also giving you an opportunity express your personal style.
Start with the room style: traditional, contemporary, or possibly a mix of both. This is an important first step in developing your decorating plan.
The next step is to choose your vanity. The vanity is the centerpiece of the room, you can build your decor around it. You can have a custom cabinet maker build a piece unique to your needs. This is ideal, though this is the most expensive option. The current trend is furniture style vanities. These come prefabricated with hand carved moldings and solid stone tops, under mount ceramic sinks or vessel styled unique sinks, and are usually pre-drilled for a faucet. This is an ideal choice for the DIY personality. If you are replacing an existing vanity and do not need to make any adjustments to the plumbing, this type of vanity can be moved into the space, and you can attach the existing plumbing to the new faucet fixture.
Vanity size will determine the mirror size. The bathroom mirror, ideally should be the same width of your vanity or slightly narrower. If you have a double sink vanity in your bathroom and want a contemporary look, an unframed large single mirror will keep it simple and sleek. For a traditional look, use two single oval shaped mirrors placed above each bowl. To add character, consider choosing two different mirrors to hang over the individual bowls.
Light fixture styles for bathrooms include over the mirror vanity fixtures and wall hung sconces, which are mounted on the sides of the mirror above a vanity. Recessed ceiling lights can also provide general lighting for a large room. Be sure to consider the amount of natural light in your space.
