Bathroom Elegance without Major Bathroom
(ARA) - The
New Year brings a new list of to-do projects, and at
the top of your list is the desire to turn your
bathroom into an elegant and luxurious space. But
renovation projects take time, money and a lot of
energy -- and you’re short on all of them.
Instead of a major bathroom
cabinet overhaul, try these tips for
creating a luxurious impact with simple upgrades
from Lynn Schrage of the Kohler Store.
* Add tile around the sink area.
Installing a mosaic on the wall behind the sink can
give your bathroom fresh appeal in just a small area.
Choose tile for pattern, texture, melange of color or
even a vertical effect. Try picking a color which
blends with the sink and wall color for a subtle
elegance, or go in the opposite direction and use the
tile colors to contrast for a striking look.
* Dress up your sink.
Give your sink a new look by replacing your old faucet
with a more modern and eye-catching model, like the
Margaux faucets from Kohler. Margaux faucets come in
three distinctive handle styles: A sleek, clean lever
handle with a subtle "X" motif; a distinctive cross
handle and a new style that somewhat resembles a
joystick. Each style's straightforward forms are
softened by fluid lines.
* Modernize your hardware.
Over the years hardware can begin to look dated, dull
or even smudged with paint. Replacing your hardware,
including towel bars, toilet paper holders and cabinet
handles with a new style to complement the faucet and
fixtures turn a bathroom into a luxurious setting.
* Change the reflection.
Bring a new look into the bathroom with a mirror that
can easily work with the current decor and jazzes it up
to an elegant layout. Try the Barbara Barry Tuxedo
mirror from Kallista at Kohler Co. Available in a java
finish on mahogany wood, this octagonal mirror provides
a stunning visual presence. It works perfectly in a
classic tile-and-marble bathroom, as well as the more
modern, sleek bathroom setting.
* Highlight all your changes.
Replacing an old light fixture can make all the
difference in the world. The trick is to determine how
to provide good lighting which also is flattering to
anyone styling their hair or applying makeup. You don't
want to overwhelm the sink area with bright lights, but
neither do you want to create shadows. Because
bathrooms are typically the smallest rooms in the
house, it is also a good idea to find a fixture that
matches the style of your hardware and faucet. Consider
a ceiling pendant that is almost flush to the ceiling
for an elegant touch.
With simple upgrades like these, you can transform your
bathroom into the luxurious space you want for yourself
and your guests.
