Strive for cohesion. These shutters are brilliant for lots of reasons. They echo the lines of the subway tiles for an integrated look. They ensure that this on-the-tiny-side bathroom gets a luxe window treatment without impinging on the space. And they provide privacy while letting in light.
So you’re ready to remodel that bathroom. Congratulations! As you probably already know, you’ve got some tasks ahead of you. Even with the help of a professional bathroom designer and a general contractor who will take care of the construction and installation, a lot of the mental work inevitably falls right on you, the homeowner.
Warm up with “wood.” Porcelain tiles that look convincingly like wooden planks are gaining in popularity, and it’s easy to see why. Using real wood can be risky in bathrooms, as the moisture can cause damage. Wood-effect floor tiles offer the warmth and good looks of wood while being practical, water-resistant and sturdy. They come in shades from grays to red-browns, so choose something that works with the rest of your home’s style and color scheme.
If your budget is about $100: Get a new shower head or bathtub faucet. Not only will a fresh shower head look better, but it also will improve your bathing experience every single day. If you’re a handy homeowner, you can even install it yourself and save on labor costs. If you have a little extra wiggle room in your budget, splurge on a fancier shower head. You won’t regret it.
