When it comes to remodeling your guest bathroom, there are many options to choose from. You want your guest bathroom to be inviting, and you want it to make guests feel comfortable. You also want it to be a functioning bathroom that has all the amenities. There are many ideas that will lend you inspiration in decorating magazines, online, and on television to get you started.
Lighting is very important in a bathroom since there’s often minimal light available in a bathroom space. If you have a window, it may not lend much light, or you may not have a window at all. Lighting can create an entire mood, so you need to decide whether you want it to be bright or more relaxing with a soft glow. Pendant lights are a great way to add a touch of light to the room without being too overbearing and are an ideal lighting choice for a small room.
Another way to update the look of your bathroom is to update the hardware on your cupboards. Choose fun, funky knobs, and drawer pull or go with a more modern and sophisticated look. It is entirely up to you, but you should consider who will be using the bathroom primarily. Will it be your in-laws, or your brother’s family mostly?
A fresh coat of paint can do wonders. You can change the whole look of an entire room by simply changing the color. It’s also a budget-friendly way to change up the look of your bathroom. Look in magazines or watch decorating shows for some ingenious ideas and to see what is “in.” Or, just paint it your favorite color.
Just like changing the pillows on the couch, you can change the towels and other accent pieces in your bathroom to give it a bit of a facelift. A good rule of thumb is to pick complimentary colors. If your walls are grey, for example, pick yellow towels to make the colors really pop and pair nicely.
Your shower and tub can be easily updated with a new spa-type showerhead or you could even re-tile your shower if you have the time and it’s in the budget. You could even replace your regular tub with a claw foot tub or transform the tub shower combo with a walk-in shower. If you can dream it up, you can do it.
There are many ways to get the guest bathroom that you want without having to move. The fun part about the bathroom is that you can do what you want without having to match with the rest of the house. It is its own room, and you can create an oasis for your guests.
