If you feel your bathroom is looking old and outdated, you can spruce it up without completely renovating it. In case you do not have the budget or the time to renovate your bathroom, there are many ways by which you can transform and make it look good by adding a splash of color to the dull décor or expand the face by using a few decorative ideas that will definitely make a difference in your vintage bathroom.
Updating the faucets and fixtures
Although pedestal sinks and the faucets might be in good shape after years of use but they need to be timely replaced. Changing the style of just your sink, scones and faucets will transform the bathroom. Bath and sink faucets come in a very large variety of shapes, styles and finishes from brass plated Victorian styles to the sleek looking chrome ones for a contemporary look. In case of a colored tub resurfacing it can also give it a great look.
Change the look of your vanity
A vanity is the only furniture that makes a big impact the moment you enter the bathroom. If you tend to change the vanity, a pedestal vanity will give an illusion of extra footage and space while a floating vanity will tend to take up less visual space. Installing a vanity with a storage cabinet and drawers with an inlaid sink on top will give you bathroom storage space as well a stylish new image.
Illusion of Glass
Installing new shower glass enclosures will heighten the luxurious element of the bathroom. Glass comes in a variety of etching designs and you can select one that takes your fancy, no matter how big or small your shower or tub area is. Wall mounted glass or wooden cabinets placed at eye level look quite appealing. Replacing your shower curtains with glass screen or a glass shower door can add that wow-factor to the washroom. Shower doors are either frameless made with tempered glass for a sleek and modern look but glass doors with a brass, chrome or gold plated frames look very amazing in traditional bathrooms.
Consider Changing the Color of the Walls
If the tiles cannot be replaced a new color on the walls will certainly change the look of your bathroom. Another way to transform your walls is to put wall decals. Beadboard or wallpaper in stripes or floral designs can add depth or a sense of height to the entire space.
Upgrading yourlooking mirror
Mirrors are available in endless styles, shapes and frame colors. Make your own style statement with a big or small decorative mirror that is sure to be the centre point of your bathroom. At times a big mirror can be replaced by hanging a small mirror over the sink or vice-versa.
Finally before you think of refreshing your bathroom it is advisable to take out a little time to go through home décor magazines or websites to see the different styles that you might want to incorporate in the redecorating of your bathroom.
