Bathroom Makeovers Are Delightful Projects

Making your bathrooms inviting and easy to clean enhances not only your home’s value but also your morning routine. If you’re interested in bathroom remodeling St Louis MO, here are some ideas to keep in mind as you plan.

Decorative Tile, Showers, Tubs, and Paneling

Attractive tiling is both practical and eye-catching. Tile the bathroom floors and the walls of a single or double walk-in shower, for example. Add a built-in soaking or Jacuzzi tub with a tiled backsplash and an arched window above that will tempt you with the thought of a relaxing bubble bath.

You might also install a free-standing, clawfoot, or alcove tub to maximize your space. To finish the walls, add a chair rail and bold baseboard with beadboard paneling between them.

Sinks, Faucets, Lighting, and Mirrors

From styling your hair to brushing your pearly whites, you’re going to spend a lot of time at the sink. Consider installing double sinks, above or below the countertop, in the master and family bathrooms with vanities for storage. Your countertop selections should be coordinated with the tiling and color scheme of the paint, towels, rugs, and curtains. Meanwhile, the powder room can have a pedestal sink.

Choose brass or nickel for the faucets, drawer and door pulls, towels bars and rings, and lighting fixtures. Don’t forget robe hooks, a toilet paper holder, and grab bars.

You can also select faucets that have low lead or that save water. Splurge on a pulsating shower head or two. Or you may select shower heads with filters that eliminate toxins. Hang framed mirrors, flanked with lights, above each sink.

Toilets, Storage, and Finishing Touches

It’s not the most glamorous part of your bathroom remodel, but you should still consider the commode. You’ll need to pick either a one- or two-piece toilet, and you might decide to add a bidet. Add open shelving above the toilet for towels or display. If additional storage is needed, purchase a linen tower or wall cabinet matching the vanity.

A bathroom remodel doesn’t have to be stressful. Have fun planning the layouts, choosing your preferences and expressing yourself. You’ll enjoy using your new bathrooms, too.
