(BPT) - Craving a more beautiful bathroom? Resolve to make this the year that you finally create the bathroom of your dreams.
Fortunately, you don't need a major remodel. Consider these ideas for simple changes with big impact. With a little planning and effort, you'll add to your home's value and functionality, while getting the “Pinterest-worthy” bathroom you know will make you smile every day.
Project 1: Fresh, eco-friendly style
Transitional style is today’s most popular bathroom style, according to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, and with good reason: almost limitless design potential. The American Standard Town Square S bathroom collection, inspired by classic American architecture, makes it easy to create a ‘put-together’ look in bathrooms of all sizes, with a full suite of fixtures and faucets that are easy to install for a stunning refresh. Performing beautifully, you would never guess just how much water the Town Square WaterSense-certified faucets save: almost half the water of regular faucets! There is nothing better than a beautiful new bathroom that is as easy on the eyes as it is on our water resources (not to mention the little extra cash you get to keep in your wallet when a lower water bill arrives!).
Project 2: Modern flooring
When you look down, do your bathroom floors leave something to be desired? Redoing the flooring is a simple weekend project that will transform the space. Tile is a great bathroom flooring choice because it is so versatile and long-lasting, and can be created to look surprisingly like other materials, such as wood, creating unique looks that wouldn't typically be possible for the bathroom space. Want to step it up? Consider heated flooring to add comfort and a touch of luxury. This top trend works with a variety of different types of flooring material.
Project 3: Customizable shower
A restorative shower experience is at the top of the list for a new bathroom must-have. Intuitive products like GROHE SmartControl make it easy to control the precise amount of water with a simple push of a button. A turn of the dial allows for accurate control of water volume and temperature. This makes it easy to change modes quickly, from when you want less water while soaping up to when you want more water to rinse off.
Bidet seats and toilets are a smart bathroom upgrade for a wellness-focused home. Drawing on Japanese traditions and technology, water cleans more thoroughly than toilet paper, so it’s more healthful for all users. A great option is the DXV AT 200 LS SpaLet with its heated seat, soft night light, fully-automatic cleansing wand and adjustable water temperature settings. This bidet toilet will also score bonus points because it is designed for fast and easy installation, so you can create your spa bathroom retreat a lot sooner than you think!
With these project tips that involve simple product installations, updating the look and feel of your bathroom won’t feel like an overwhelming undertaking.
