There are many styles of bath sinks to choose from today. You?re not limited to the standard white porcelain bowl. Your options are many, including glass, marble, granite or ceramic free-standing bowls to molded Corian and faux marble. In most cases, your budget will determine which you’ll select.
The cabinets you select will not only set the style for your room, but will also provide storage for all that you expect to have in your bathroom. Even stock cabinets from a home improvement center come in many colors, styles, and materials. If you have a more generous budget, you?ll be able to select custom cabinets with complementary moldings.
Flooring in the bath is traditionally tile, whether ceramic, marble, granite, or terra cotta. What you choose will be determined both by what look you want and how much your budget allows for this choice. Some bathroom flooring has heat coils installed under it, so that when you step out of the shower on a chilly morning, you stay warm. What a luxury!
Lighting in a bathroom must be functional, but can also be beautiful and mood-setting. For make-up application and shaving you?ll want bright light. If you love to take a relaxing soak in a hot tub, you?ll want to be sure you can dim the lights!
The faucets on the sink, tub, shower, and toilet, as well as the handles and pulls on the cabinets will serve as the jewelry for the room and should be chosen with great care. Whether you select traditional polished chrome or the newer styles of brushed nickel or antiqued bronze, these items will be the finishing touch on a major transformation.
Decorating the bathroom, whether it means a fresh coat of paint or a total remodel or something in between, can be a fun and rewarding project. Plan well and be patient, and you?ll love the results. Use the resources here to help you make the choices.
