Enhancing Different Areas Of Your Bathroom

Posted on: 31 March 2015


Changing the look of your bathroom cannot be done until you have a set plan. Your goal is to determine how functional the space needs to be and then you can choose stylish options. With this in mind, you will have an easier time choosing the right enhancements for the space.

Shower Enclosure

One enhancement you can make to your bathroom is to update the shower area. Unless you like to take baths, your first change is to remove the tub and create a unique shower stall.

Without the tub, you start by adding an enclosed panel of glass and you leave one spot open, which will act as the doorway for the shower. This allows you to use the three existing walls for the rest of the stall, so you do not have to create a completely new structure for your shower. To enhance the design, you can have the contractor add decorative tiles to the three main walls to complete the overall look of the shower.

To help enhance this space even further, you have the option of creating unique pattern for the water. For example, you can create a rain affect by installing the showerhead in the ceiling so the water comes down vertically. This design option mimics the direction of natural rain, which makes it different from traditional shower stalls.

Separate Storage

Another option for increasing useable space and adding style is to create separate storage areas in your bathroom. You have several ways of completing this task, though a common option is to use a sectional cabinet system.

Several companies offer premade cabinets that come with individual sections. These sections have stationary and pull out shelves for all of your toiletry items. This model type looks like a solid cabinet from the outside, but when you open the doors, you will see the individual areas that you can use.

When you look into storage, you should also consider making a custom design with shelves and baskets. Placing glass shelves near shower stalls for example, is a great way to get the extra storage you need. Another benefit of using this type of shelving material is that the steam from the hot water will not warp the glass.

Additionally, you can use plastic baskets for shower items such as extra soap and shampoo. These baskets can handle excess moisture, and they will not generally warp from the water and they are easy to clean. Several companies manufacture a number of decorative plastic baskets in several color pallets; you will just need to find the ones that best suit your design scheme.

When remodeling your bathroom, you have several design options. However, before you make any decisions, you need to consider how each change will enhance the space. Whether your goal is to add style and/or functionality, it is best to know which ones work for your personal situation and then make a plan to complete the project.
