8 Easy Ways To Upgrade Your Bathroom

~ This is a featured post. ~

The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in any house and one of the most popular when it comes to home remodeling jobs. It is also one of the most costly and difficult areas to remodel. But when done right, just a few upgrades here and there could completely transform the way your bathroom looks, even on a budget. In this article, we’re going to give you a few ways you could give your bathroom an instant upgrade.

Go for a Clawfoot Bathtub
If you want to give your bathroom a more rustic feel, then consider going for something like a clawfoot bathtub. Depending on how your bathroom is configured, this could actually be pretty easy to do and will completely change the way your bathroom looks and feels.

One of the things I like about a clawfoot bathtub look is how versatile they can be. If you want to go for a more modern look, there are clawfoot tubs that will fit any modern bathroom decor. But you could also get a near perfect replica of an old-time clawfoot bathtub if it’s cohesive with the general feel of the room. You could even go for a copper clawfoot bathtub if you’re feeling adventurous.

Upgrade the Mirrors
Adding new mirrors or dressing the ones you already have could have a huge influence on how the bathroom looks. When used correctly, mirrors can add depth to your bathroom and make it look much larger. Wide and tall mirrors can work wonders to make a small bathroom look bigger. Adding a frame around your main mirror can also be a great way to upgrade your bathroom. A beautiful mirror frame made from reclaimed birch would be a great addition to a brand new clawfoot tub as well.

Go for Luxury Vinyl Tile Flooring
Vinyl flooring has come a long way and is now becoming more and more popular with homeowners for a wide variety of reasons. Luxury vinyl tiles, or LVT for short, allow for much more options than regular vinyl flooring, especially for bathrooms.

While vinyl was an unpopular choice for bathrooms not too long ago, LVT can be installed in your bathroom with no problem. It is one of the easiest flooring options to install, and one of the most versatile as well. And it allows for a much wider variety of finishes too.
Always dreamed of having hardwood floors in your bathroom? Then go for imitation wood LVT. Not only will you get an almost identical finish, but it will also be completely water resistant and not prone to warping or rotting like wood. And it can even be installed yourself if you have the know-how and are ready to get your hands dirty.

Or Go for New Tile Floors
But if you want to go for the whole shebang, you can always go for new tile floors as well. Natural stone tile like marble, granite, porcelain or travertine will give your bathroom an instant upgrade and a brand new modern and elegant look. And it's not uncommon today to see people using the same tiles for the walls and the floor, so that’s one less thing to worry about.

Go for a Corner Sink
If you want your bathroom to look special, you have to be willing to step outside of the box as well. Most people are used to having their sink in a central location, but why not go for a corner sink instead? Not only will it make the bathroom stand out but will make it more functional by facilitating foot traffic as well.

Give that Vanity an Upgrade
The vanity is also an element that you should give special attention to when making upgrades to your bathroom. Switching to a floating vanity will not only make your bathroom look bigger but will also give you some extra storage space right underneath it. If you have enough space, consider adding a ‘his & hers’ vanity unity to make your bathroom feel extra luxurious.

And while you’re at it, why don’t you get rid of these hazardous sharp corners and go for a rounded vanity instead? Bathrooms can sometimes lack proper lighting, and vanities with sharp edges can be dangerous in certain situations. Switching to a rounded vanity will not only make your bathroom safer but more stylish as well.

Go for Tiles on the Countertop
We all know that using the proper set of tiles can completely transform a bathroom but on the countertop? Yes, when used correctly, tiles on a countertop can be a great addition and a great conversation starter as well. Nice terracotta tiles can be the perfect addition to a dark blue countertop and are a much cheaper alternative to stone countertops as well. Make sure that you use the right caulk so the water doesn’t seep into the cracks.

Go for a New Color Scheme
For some reason, a lot of people tend to get creative when comes the time to find color schemes for their master bedroom or kitchen but will strangely go all conservative when comes the time to choose colors for the bathroom. But choosing the right colors could completely change your bathroom’s look and make it look more high-end instantly, even if all you did is buy some paint.

If you want to take things up a notch, forget the white and neutral tones and go for a splash of color on the walls. Colors you should consider include powder blue, rich jewel tones, greens, or even matt brown or black accented with chrome fixtures and light tiles. Add a few colored elements here and there and you’ll have a Pinterest worthy bathroom you’ll be able to show to your friends.

So, if you were running out of ideas on how to upgrade your bathroom, we hope we were able to get your creative juices flowing. These few recommendations will take any bathroom design from great to outstanding in no time.
