You know a stylish bathroom when you see it, perhaps in the pages of a home décor magazine or on a popular home design television show. The bath fixtures gleam, the wall and mirror sconces are elegant, the luxurious towels look plush and inviting and there is no evidence of the sort of clutter you see in most ordinary bathrooms. The tub or shower enclosure may feature multiple showerheads – both hand held and other showerheads, either on the walls or from the ceiling. All in all, the effect is dramatic and welcoming.
It’s actually not all that difficult to create a stylish bathroom in your own home, even if you don’t have a big budget for remodeling. Begin by setting aside some time to clear out and clean the bathroom – you’d be surprised how much stuff has accumulated that you no longer use or need. Draw the drapes, raise the blinds or remove the window treatments completely for cleaning and possible replacement.
Clean the light fixtures thoroughly and take the time to replace any burned out or missing light bulbs. Replace them with new ones at the highest wattage recommend for the fixture; consider installing the new energy efficient CFL bulbs if you have not already done so.
Installation of a handheld showerhead is just the sort of thing you can do without calling in a plumber; it will transform your bathing experience. Use a handheld showerhead to shampoo hair, bathe small children, wash pets or even water plants; it also makes it easy to clean the tub or shower enclosure.
