Bathroom Makeovers: 4 Tips for a Classier Bathroom

Even though it’s often the smallest room in the house, the bathroom is a key element to any home. A classy guest bathroom can give you the air of a high-class host. A luxurious master bathroom can be a great place to relax as well. For these and other reasons, this room can sometimes be the most expensive one to remodel.

Fortunately, there are ways to lessen the financial blow of upgrading one of these important rooms. Remember that the key to a successful project is to start early. It also helps to make a detailed plan with a budget that you can comfortably work with. This will help keep it less expensive than some other types of home renovation. Here are a few tips for a classy guest bathroom renovation project. 

Plenty of Seating

When people think of a bathroom, they don’t often think of having extra seating. While this luxury doesn’t make sense for every bathroom, it can add a touch of elegance to some. A comfortable chair at a vanity, for example, can make doing your hair or make-up a more comfortable experience. Having a plush window seat can also be nice. This allows you to enjoy the morning or evening view while performing your beauty routines is also an option.

Even if you don’t use the extra seats, having comfortable chairs in your bathroom will make it feel luxurious.  You could even consider adding a comfortable stool next to the tub. This provides a place to sit while you’re soaking your feet, painting your toenails, or drawing a bath. Added seating will also be a benefit while you’re remodeling because you’ll have somewhere to sit. It’s important to note that seating should only be added if your bathroom is large enough to accommodate it, as you don’t want the room to feel cramped.

This is the reason why we often turn to Feng Shui. When we think about applying this approach, we usually have in mind big things, such as beds, pipes and furniture arrangement. However, some seemingly small and insignificant items, like rugs, can also make a huge impact on the interior’s Chi (positive energy).
