Q: Where do I start to get my bathroom in order in the New Year?
A: You might be like many others after the holidays contemplating how you can update a room in your home that catches a lot of attention—and the bathroom is a great place to start if you are. That being said, a lot of times homeowners avoid bathroom renos because they aren’t sure what mysteries they might uncover—what leaky faucets, drips or unexpected updates will need to be addressed.
But with ACo, you can start the New Year off with confidence knowing that your bathroom renovation is in expert hands!
Here are a few things to think about when it comes to getting started:
Expansion Possibilities: Is there any square footage that’s not being used to its full extent? Can you have an existing wall knocked out or lengthened or widen your bathroom? This is the chief complaint of many home owners – that their bathroom is simply too small. Any extra space you can add to the room will benefit the entire house both in terms of usability and in overall value.
Cut out Clutter: If you have a large and bulky cabinet in your bathroom, consider replacing it with a smaller model to create more space. While you’re at it, de-clutter the rest of your bathroom by removing any unused items from shelving and window sills.
Maximize Color: Many bathrooms are designed to showcase cold colors such as blue and pale creams. Most people use blues because most bathrooms tend to take on an aquatic feel of some kind. The problem is that overuse of blue as a base color can actually make a room “feel” cold. Why not experiment with warmer colors such as yellow, orange and terracotta? These can make even the least exciting bathroom feel very snug and cozy.
Bathroom renovations are one of the best ways to improve your home value and give you one more reason to be proud of your much-loved home! We look forward to helping you achieve that perfect look!
