The bathroom, for some, is one of the most important rooms in the home. Aside from its functionality, the bathroom is one room in the house that offers privacy and, in many cases, a tub for relaxation. Bathroom home improvement for some is one of the most exciting projects, because this is oftentimes one room that serves primarily the homeowner. Here, we take a closer look at options like replacing a sink or faucet, a new showerhead, and new cabinetry.
Sink and Faucet Replacements
Homeowners can really get creative with bathroom faucets to show off their own style, and the style of the bathroom. They come in a variety of styles, finishes and functions. Victorian bathroom faucets feature intricate curves while a modern bridge faucet can add some funk to a bathroom. A touch of grace can be shown with curved faucet handles in bronze. Want a bathroom your neighbor will envy? Ceramic vases can act as a water spout, inspired by a porcelain vase with floral designs. Wall-mount bathroom faucets are also truly one-of-a-kind—a unique twist. Sinks, too can enhance the style of a bathroom. How about a classic white pedestal sink to add a traditional feel? Or a modern vessel sink for a contemporary feel? Glass bowls are also popping up in bathroom home improvement projects.
You’ll know when it’s time to replace your showerhead. You may have been ignoring the grime that’s built up on your current one, but that could be causing a noticeable lack of water pressure. Showerheads come in a variety of styles, so first decide what theme you’d like to follow in your bathroom, as well as your budget. The no-fuss version is the standard, wall-mounted, simple showerhead, which is the most economical option. There’s also the top-mount showerhead which hangs from the ceiling. The handheld is great for those who prefer to conserve water usage. For families of varying heights, a sliding bar shower head is a great choice; body spray showerheads can be installed in vertical rows to create water streams from head to toe.
New Cabinet Hardware
Whatever your taste, there is probably a bathroom cabinet style for you. Create consistency between your sink, faucet and shower by using the cabinets as a focal point. Create contemporary elegance with flat-panel doors and brushed-nickel handles paired with granite countertops. A midcentury modern look can be created with geometric shapes and industrial materials, while a formal traditional look can be formed with symmetric arrangements and vanity cabinetry.
