Your hair is a mess, your mascara is smudged, and you have lipstick on your teeth. Or maybe you missed a spot shaving, there’s toothpaste on your tie, your hair is also a mess… Needless to say, you had a rough time getting ready this morning.
If this sounds like you on a regular basis, your bathroom might be to blame. Of course, you’re going to have a hard time getting ready if your space isn’t functional. It might be time to embark on a bathroom remodeling project.
If you need a change but don’t know where to start, we’ve got you covered. Read on for some of our best bathroom remodeling ideas that will help transform your mornings.
Try a New Layout
A remodeling project is the perfect time to try out different bathroom layouts. Your current setup might not be ideal for your morning routine. Think about how you use the space now and what you could do to improve it.
Are you always bumping into everyone in the morning? Consider moving some fixtures around to improve traffic flow.
If your bathroom is big enough, you might want to divide it into separate zones. Have one designated area for showering and washing up and another area for doing hair and makeup.
Ditch the Double Vanity
Double vanities are extremely popular but think about your morning routine before installing one. You might find that it would be better to have only one sink but more counter space for your toiletries.
If you do need two sinks, consider wall-mounted sinks instead of a double vanity. This saves space, which is helpful in a small bathroom.
You can never have enough storage space, especially in a bathroom. If you have enough room, you can add built-in cabinets to help store towels, toiletries, and other essentials.
For smaller spaces, built-in nooks are a great alternative. They can be added to a custom vanity or built directly into the wall.
Remove the Tub
Do you ever use your bathtub? If the answer is no, consider swapping it out for a walk-in shower.
With a smaller footprint than a bathtub, the shower will add usable square footage to your bathroom. You can use this space to add other essentials or to simply help improve traffic flow.
New Bathroom Lighting
Like with other areas of your home, proper lighting is an essential component of a functional bathroom. To help make your mornings easier, you’ll want a combination of overhead and task lighting.
For overhead lighting, you could add a hint of luxury with a gorgeous chandelier. If your bathroom doesn’t have windows, consider a light fixture with a built-in vent fan.
For task lighting, let your morning routine help you decide where you need more illumination. A light in the shower or sconces over the vanity might be helpful.
