Are You Remodeling Your Guest Bathroom?
Are you and your spouse finally empty nesters? If so, perhaps you are making big changes in what was once the children's area of the house. Do those changes involve bathroom remodeling?
Do you have a plan for the bathroom remodeling project? If that's not the case, from checking out bathroom showrooms to choosing the bathroom decor, here are some ideas that might help you.
Check Out Bathroom Showrooms - Think of visiting home stores to see what the designers have done in the way of bathroom decor. Those bathroom settings will have everything from clawfoot bathtubs to glass shower doors. In addition, you will probably see many different types of countertops and cabinets.
As you check out the bathroom showrooms, think of talking with one of the salespeople at the store. He or she will have the training and the experience to tell you about everything on the showroom floor. For example, if your bathroom at home has a shower and bathtub combination, the salespeople at the store can show you glass doors that will work with your existing tub and shower.
If you are wanting to create a very elegant bathroom, the clerk will more than likely point out things like granite countertops that have flecks of gold or silver in them. Maybe you want an eclectic feeling in the guest bathroom. If that's the case, you might be happiest with jewel toned tile for the countertops.
The sales person will be happy to help you with pricing, too. For example, maybe a countertop you like is just more than you want to pay. In that case, the clerk will probably show you a similar look that is less expensive.
Choose Additional Bathroom Decor - The bathroom showroom will have other decor that will enhance your remodeled guest bathroom. For example, a decorator will probably have chosen artwork that goes with the different kinds of bathrooms that are shown. If your choice, for instance, is a sleek, simple bathtub, that will probably mean that you want a contemporary feeling in the bathroom. Modern photographs placed in metal frames might be the perfect addition to a contemporary bathroom.
Maybe you're going to select the clawfoot bathtub that you fell in love with. In that case, more traditional decor might be your best choice. For example, beach scenes, fields of flowers, and children at play paintings in gold frames would be great in a traditional bathroom setting.
