Whether you’re hosting out-of-town guests, or your family simply needs more room to get ready, a guest bathroom can be a lifesaver, so why not make it functional and beautiful? Bathroom renovations are one of the most sought after remodel projects, and that certainly includes half and full guest bathrooms. If your guest bathroom needs an update, consider what choices will make a big impact. There are many design changes, both big and small, that you can incorporate. Let’s take a look at 5 guest bathroom refresh ideas. Select one, two, or do them all for a complete remodel. Your options are limitless. If you’re seeking a larger renovation, avoid costly mistakes and contact a reputable contracting company before you begin so that you can be confident in the results.
A fresh coat of paint does wonders to a space, doesn’t it? It is particularly effective in a smaller space such as a guest bathroom. While neutral tones convey a spa-like, soothing atmosphere, it’s also acceptable to have a little fun and play with color here. Homeowners are experimenting with teals and other tones in the blue-green family. Stick to current trends, or choose a color that speaks to you. And don’t be afraid to give wallpaper a chance. If you have terrible memories of your grandmother’s peeling pink floral wallpaper, think again. There are many patterns, designs, and even textures to consider. Wallpaper can add a touch of luxury to a bathroom space. Bonus: Textured wallpaper adds dimension, which in turn makes a bathroom appear larger.
For one of the most used rooms in the house, bathroom flooring needs to be hard, durable and waterproof. No carpeting. No hardwoods. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are most popular in bathrooms, and because there is a large variety of tile designs available, you can certainly find tiles that fit your overall desired aesthetic. If you’re updating flooring, play with tile direction, pattern, and color. You can select a tone that contrasts with the rest of the space or one that blends in, creating an overall seamless look. New bathroom flooring will last years, and is a wise investment.
One of the pricier upgrades you can make to your guest bathroom is replacing the vanity. Some guest bathrooms display a pedestal sink, which saves on space but provides zero storage. If your vanity is dated or doesn’t match other elements in the room, it’s time to replace it. Select a vanity with open or closed storage, and remember that this is the focal point of the bathroom, so make sure you’re happy with your selection, whether it’s a pop of color or a natural wood. Even a small free-standing vanity can be big on style.
Looking for a simple way to refresh your guest bathroom, like, now? Head to your nearest hardware store and select a few new fixtures. Accessories like towel racks, hooks, and toilet paper holders are easy to swap out or add if they aren’t there currently. For a bit larger change, swap out your light fixture. Bathroom lighting is important, and you want to make sure lights are going to work for you as you need them to, but are also modern and stylish. Is your mirror dated? Try an updated mirror shape or a decorative framed mirror for interest or to achieve that grandmillenial vibe.
When it comes to simple updates, nothing is easier than giving your decor a refresh. If this bathroom is reserved only for guests, you want to be sure they have enough counter space for their personal items; however, you can make it feel warm and inviting by incorporating faux plants, scented candles, or an interesting piece of art. Did you know that it’s recommended to replace your bathroom rug every two years? Swapping out the small bathroom rug isn’t only hygienic, it’s an opportunity for color change. If space isn’t an issue, try a textured ottoman or ladder for towels that will really wow your guests.
