Tips For Remodeling Your Bathroom

Performing a bathroom remodel in your home is one of the best ways to add value to your investment – and let’s face it, who doesn’t want to step into a fresh, updated bathroom each day? Television, online resources, and apps have made design ideas readily available for homeowners to browse, sparking the creativity of interior design enthusiasts everywhere. Starting the development of your bathroom remodel is simple and here are a few tips to help.

Make the Space Function for Your Needs

Think about your needs and how you envision using the space. How many people will be using the bathroom? Will you need separate or additional storage for linens or beauty supplies, or maybe eliminating unused storage space works best for you? Will the space be heavily used or is it a second bathroom space which only guests use? Asking these questions help to start the design process. If ample counter space, double sinks, or adding special lighting are a priority, make note of these ideas and share them with your designer.

Reflect Your Style with Cabinetry

From sleek and modern to traditional to trendy, bathroom cabinetry can pull your entire remodel design together. Not only are new bathroom cabinets visually appealing, they can be customized to maximize space and provide ample storage. Different colored and textured cabinetry can be incorporated into your bathroom design creating a personalized look that matches your style. Trendy farmhouse styles incorporate a “barn door” look onto cabinet faces as well as beadboard textures. Bathroom vanities can be customized to look like pieces of vintage furniture with granite, quartz, or marble countertops enclosing an undermount sink. No matter your style, Markraft’s extensive selection will meet the needs of any design plan.

Set the Tone with Color

Color is powerful and can create the mood in a room, whether uplifting or calming. Will your new space help you wake-up and spring into action in the mornings or would it better serve you as a quiet place to relax at the end of a long day? Choose a color that will match the mood best suited for your needs. Neutral colors like grey, beige, and shades of light blue and white often set a peaceful atmosphere while bold colors like yellow, orange, and lime green can invigorate our moods. While traditional wood grain cabinetry is always an option, Markraft offers any color cabinetry that best compliments your existing selections – the possibilities are endless making your space just as unique as you are.

Establish Ambiance with Lighting

The bathroom is one place where ample lighting is a must. Wall mounted lighting next to and above mirrors helps to illuminate and remove shadows from the reflection. While some bathroom lighting needs are essential for helping us to prepare for our day ahead, building in dimming options or adding a statement light can be soothing for the evening wind-down. No need to worry about rearranging lighting for your remodel with Markraft. They can refer you to a specialized contractor who fits the needs of your project and will work with them to make the design plan clear.
