Vanities and Fixtures in Phoenix Bathroom Remodeling
When a property owner is planning a bathroom remodeling project, the tendency is to immediately focus on showers, tubs and flooring. These are generally the most focal and eye-catching elements of a new bathroom, so it is only natural to be excited about choosing these features.
However, there are lots of other pieces to the bathroom remodeling puzzle. It is easy to underestimate the role that other more understated parts play in the overall look. But strategically choosing some of the other bathroom features can make a surprisingly big difference in the overall look and feel of the space.
Take the vanity, for instance. This is where you will spend considerable time while in the bathroom. It also serves a functional purpose, so it needs to blend both the practical and the stylish goals you want to achieve.
Many people fall into the pattern of leaving the vanity until last when making their choices for the new bathroom. But thinking about the vanity early in the process allows you to incorporate it into the comprehensive design and perhaps even make it a highlight and focal point around which other elements revolve.
If you aren’t doing a complete bathroom renovation, the vanity is even more important. This can be a main component of a moderate bathroom makeover with a limited budget. As this article notes, a new vanity can change the entire look of the bathroom. Since vanities can be viewed as the furniture of the bathroom, they really help establish the style and feel of the space. Plus, there’s a lot more room for creative freedom and originality when it comes to vanities, as opposed to tubs and sinks which often must conform to standard sizes and layouts.
With a vanity, you can inject your own taste and personal preferences as far as materials, colors, look and layout. There are a lot of options when it comes to materials, colors and styles so look around at many examples to get an idea of what might work best for you. Whether you are aiming for modern, traditional, muted, bold or any other type of look, you will surely be able to find a vanity that perfectly epitomizes the style you want.
Next, consider the fixtures. Again, this is something that packs a lot of power in a small package. It’s easy to write off fixtures as a minor part of the bathroom design, but you might be surprised at how much attention they actually get. Striking or unusual fixtures can really catch the eye and make your entire space feel unique and original.
You have plenty of options when it comes to fixtures and faucets, as styles run the gamut from sleek and modern to vintage and traditional. There are wall-mounted faucets, automated no-touch faucets and even those that look like antiques. You can also choose from a wide variety of materials and finishes, to help your fixtures stand out or blend in, depending on your goal.
Lastly, you can also express your creativity when it comes to lighting and window options. Here, the sky is the limit (literally, if you decide to add a skylight). There are a vast array of exciting and cool lighting options, which can also include light coverings, high-tech automated lighting arrangements and unusual lighting placement configurations.
The best part is, these elements can often be very affordable and represent a small portion of your bathroom remodeling budget, yet the impact they provide can far exceed their weight in the total cost. In addition, they are also relatively easy and inexpensive to replace—which means you have a way to give your bathroom a new look if you feel the need for a change. It is, after all, much easier to swap out a few fixtures than to install a whole new floor or replace a shower enclosure. This is also something that a homeowner can likely do themselves, so you don’t need to hire a home improvement contractor again if you want to add some fresh touches a few years after your bathroom remodel has been completed.
