When most people consider decorating their bathroom, they may just be seeing dollar signs floating above their heads, however, it is important to remember that each little improvement you make on your bathroom can dramatically increase the value of your home if you try to sell it in the future, or simply give you the terrific space and accommodations you deserve to enjoy for years and years to come! Mirrors Why not get rid of that flat, enormous, glass mirror above the counter and sink that runs from wall to wall. By taking that down, and selecting unique, stylish, and beautiful mirror fixtures to hang above the sink, or on another wall of the bathroom, you can really open up the walls! That wall to wall mirror will date your bathroom, and you’ll be surprised by how more luxurious a bathroom will feel by putting in a beautifully framed mirror. While you may not want to admire yourself with a 360 degree view of nature’s own, instead of having mirrors all around, you can add a splash of color to the walls, or even art pieces that will liven up the room and add a new dimension. Countertops The biggest thing to consider when getting your countertops is not only the design, but also the material. If you skipped on the upgrade to granite countertops when you moved in, you might want to consider upgrading for your fifth or tenth anniversary! Stick to colors that you know will be timeless! Putting in marble countertops will add incredible value to your home, even as it ages and will be a great perk for future buyers if you ever decide to sell. Deciding on the color and material for the countertops will also give you a great base for the rest of the design and direction of your remodeling. Also, while many couples enjoy having a ‘his and her’ sink in their bathroom, some of us realize that the ‘her’ sink hasn’t been used since moving in. While you’re remodeling your bathroom, consider getting rid of the second sink all together. It will give you plenty of room in your bathroom for other furniture or that jetted tub you’ve always wanted! Tub or shower, why does it have to be one or the other? A huge decision when designing or remodeling your bathroom is whether to have a tub, a shower, or if you’re like most of us and can’t decide, you’ll figure out a way to get both in there. Plumbers from Calgary to Cambridge will be more than happy to work with you on a design that will work within your current space to give you exactly what you want. If your husband loves baths but you’re more of a shower fan, look into getting both for your new bathroom. While your bathroom may be small, there are normally several square feet in a bathroom that aren’t being utilized that can be transformed into your dream bathroom. If you took out that second sink, you’ll certainly have enough room for a luxurious jetted tub as well as a shower. Having the combination will really upgrade the resale value if you ever decide to move on, as well as give you an exciting option each time you want to wash!
