The bathroom is often thought of by many homeowners as an unglamorous and purely functional space. However, there are actually many different ways that you can upgrade your bathroom to jazz it up and improve both its functionality and its aesthetic appeal. In this post, we take a look at various bathroom upgrades and how you can incorporate them into your home, regardless of whether you’re thinking of renovating or rebuilding.
Assessing Your Current Bathroom Design
Before embarking on any bathroom upgrades, it is essential for you to start by assessing your current bathroom and determining what kind of upgrades you need. Consider both the layout and the design, identifying pain points that have bothered you about your bathroom. For example, if you find that the sink is too high or too low for your liking, then an upgrade that you can consider would be to adjust the height of your sink.
Combining Luxury with Functionality
At the same time, not all of the upgrades you choose to make need to be functional. There are many ways that you can combine luxury with functionality when upgrading your bathroom. For instance, upgrading your bathroom’s fixtures and faucets to higher-end models can provide both additional functionality and a touch of elegance to your bathroom. Other luxurious and functional upgrades that you can consider include rainfall showerheads, body jets and even freestanding bathtubs.
Lighting and Ambience
When upgrading your bathroom, don’t forget to consider lighting as well. Warm lighting can be ideal for creating a relaxing ambience whereas white lighting can evoke a sense of cleanliness and freshness. Thus, consider the type of ambience that you want in your bathroom and adjust the lighting options accordingly. You can also install adjustable lighting that you can change based on your mood each day.
Integrating Smart Technologies
Smart technologies and smart home devices have recently gained in popularity amongst homeowners. Some of these technologies and devices can also be incorporated into your bathroom to give you a more enjoyable experience. For instance, you can install a voice-controlled lighting and music system to help you enjoy a spa-like relaxation experience in the comfort of your own home.
Other smart technologies that you can integrate into your bathroom include heaters that are programmed to turn on at fixed timings and automatic thermostats that ensure that you’re always in a comfortable environment.
Working with Professionals
While you can often perform small-scale upgrades such as faucet replacements or basic furniture installation on your own, it might be best for you to work with professionals when it comes to more complex or large-scale upgrades. Professional contractors often have the knowledge and expertise to help you achieve the best results for your bathroom.
