When it’s time to update or upgrade a room in your home, it can be hard to know where to start. You don’t have to perform a complete remodel to make some valuable home improvements, but which aspects should be improved? When it comes to renovating your bathroom, here are some of the best and the worst upgrades you can make.
Retile your shower walls
Over time, your shower tile can become old, faded, dirty, and even cracked. Breathe some life back into it by retiling – a fairly simple job for a professional but one that will make a noticeable difference to the look of your bathroom. Even just re-grouting the tiles can freshen the room up a great deal.
Add some warmth
Choosing the right colors can add some warmth to a room, but we’re talking about literal warmth here. Getting out of a hot shower on a winter’s day and stepping on the cold tile isn’t the most comfortable experience, but adding a radiant-heat system beneath your bathroom floor can solve this. Not only will it make the room more comfortable, it also means the floor dries quicker. Along with non-slip tile, this helps to make the bathroom a safer place. A heated towel rail is another good idea, helping to dry your towels quicker and giving you the luxury of wrapping a warm towel around yourself.
Add more storage
Expanding your storage is the best way to improve the functionality of your bathroom. A bathroom cabinet, wall-mounted shelves, and draws and cupboards within your vanity are all great places to store toiletries, towels, and more without taking up too much space.
Revamp your flooring with a “tile rug”
If you want to add some flair and character to your flooring, then a “tile rug” is a great option, and it means that you don’t have to re-do the entire floor. A tile rug is an accent within your floor made up of patterned or colored tiles that stand out from the surrounding tiles. This involves taking up the tile from the area you want the tile rug to be fitted, however large or small you choose, and then retiling that area to create a customized patterned “rug”.
