Less is more

Having long-lasting results is best achieved when opting for a minimal revamp.

Don’t forget storage space

If your master bathroom is not working for you due to a lack of storage space, then you will want to consider storage options during the remodeling process.

Adding storage space to the vanity and bathroom walls are the easiest option. Utilizing drawer space by adding dividers and shelves will help you stay organized. In addition, floating shelves will help you display goods and products for easy access and an aesthetic finish.

Neutral colors and design

The master bathroom remodel cost involves redesigning the walls and flooring. A key purpose of a bathroom remodel is to enhance its design. Thus, if you want to be satisfied and achieve long-lasting results, you will want to consider neutral colors and designs.

Ways to maximize space

Storage space is the best way to maximize space. However, there are other steps in the remodeling process that help further maximize space in the bathroom.

  • Glass panels: similarly, the glass will help maximize the lighting in the bathroom. They will not bounce light around, but allow it to pass through and open up the room. Glass panels work well for showers and space separators.
  • Lighter tones: light colors help bounce light, especially whites and creams. The lighter the colors are in your bathroom, the lighter the room will feel, which will maximize its space.
  • More mirrors: mirrors bounce around natural light. Thus, the more mirrors you have, the more light will be bounced around. This will lighten the room and make it appear larger. It is an illusion but will help make the master bathroom appear more spacious.
  • Get rid of big blinds: the bathroom is a room that does not need blinds, especially if you have frosted glass windows. Blinds can hinder the natural light that passes through the windows. Thus, opt for small blinds or no blinds. You will be able to achieve maximum lighting for maximum space.

Ambient lighting

Speaking of lighting, you will also want to consider lighting for the darker days or hours. Ambient lighting will enhance the calmness of the room, which is what you want to achieve for a relaxing atmosphere. Ambient lighting options work well as a centerpiece or around the vanity and wash areas.

Spotlights can be harsh when placed on the ceiling. Thus, adding floor lights around the room will add soft light, make the room brighter, and enhance its calming feel.
