The guest bathroom is a “unique animal” that can be easily spruced up without having to sink thousands of dollars into a renovation. A simple Providence bathroom remodel can be done in a weekend if you have the knowledge, tools, and drive to get it completed. Because this is not the master bathroom, you won’t have to change out everything from the flooring to the tub, but there are some strategic areas that should be updated to really make it worth the effort. If you are planning on inviting friends and family to your home this year for the holidays, there’s no better way to say “Welcome!” than to provide them with a beautiful bathroom to use when they arrive.
Install a New Vanity
One of the best ways to make a big difference in a guest bathroom is to update your old and outdated Rhode Island bathroom vanity. This is especially true if the vanity is original “contractor grade” materials. Because the guest bathroom is smaller than the master, you can afford to install top quality bathroom cabinets that are in the latest styles and designs. Take advantage of bathroom vanity deals at the Cabinet Factory Outlet in Swansea. Choose from traditional white or an array of beautiful colors, including stained cherry and maple, dark espresso, and classic cream. Choose the best size, type, and options for your Providence bathroom remodel and select from a wide selection of countertops, hardware, and accessories to really make it pop.
Installing a new vanity is not as difficult as it sounds. In fact, if you know how to shut off the water, remove a faucet, and measure materials, it can be done as a DIY project by most homeowners. However, if you are concerned about working with plumbing and electrical outlets in any way, hiring a contractor to do the installation for a single vanity is not as pricey as installing an entire master bathroom or kitchen. Do what is most comfortable for you based on your knowledge, experience, and confidence. Check out online videos that show simple vanity installations and visit the Cabinet Factory Outlet for tips on proper measurement for new cabinetry.
Use Color to Your Advantage
Another great way to make a significant impact on a tired, old guest bathroom is to add some color as part of your Providence bathroom remodel. Painting is easy, but it takes time and focus. Go online and read some tips on how to improve your painting skills and make sure to get all of the tools you need to get the job done right. Choosing the best color for your space can sometimes be a challenge. Smaller bathrooms can take on bolder colors than other rooms in the house, but you want to make sure that it matches your new top quality bathroom cabinets and Rhode Island bathroom vanity. There are lots of great tools that you can use to match wall colors, backsplash, lighting fixture, and other accents to your new vanity.
Design tips for choosing colors include making sure that the guest room coordinates with the rest of the house. You don’t want to have a classic or traditional design everywhere else and then have a very modern or retro design with tons of bright colors in the guest bathroom. This is a tip that is used for all types of home remodeling. Everything should sort of flow together to reveal a common interest, design type or theme. While you don’t need to have walls that are all the same color or even bring the same flooring into the guest bathroom, everything should still be similar enough that it feels cohesive.
Add an Accent Piece
Every room should have that one focal piece that draws everyone’s attention and gets them excited about the space. While your brand new Rhode Island bathroom vanity will serve as a focal point, other items can also fit the bill. A beautifully framed mirror could replace the contractor stock full-wall mirror that once hung in its place. A colorful light fixture could hang over the sink providing custom functional lighting or the powder room. Metallic decorative items can also be used to bring a bit of shine and pizzaz to the space that will really draw the eye. Just be careful not to get anything too big or too ornate that will swallow up the whole space and detract from all of the other elements that you have included in your new Providence bathroom remodel.
