Are you in the mood to make changes in your home? Perhaps you are remodeling your master bathroom with an elegant theme. If so, from the selection of towels to the repair of your shower door, here are some ideas that might inspire you to design something unique and lovely.
Before You Begin - Look at your bathroom with a critical eye. With paper and pen in hand, make a list of the changes you want to make. Browse through decorating magazines and cut out pictures of ideas that can be used in your master bathroom. Don't just focus on pictures of bathrooms. Get ideas from illustrations of living rooms, bedrooms, and even patios. Another good idea is to visit model houses to see what the professional interior decorators have done in each of the bathrooms. Create a file of the ideas you liked best so that you can refer to them as you work on your remodeling project.
Make Necessary Repairs - As you make your assessment, pay attention to detail. Does a broken tile need to be replaced? If it is a standard issue tile, your local home products store will probably have the exact tile in stock. Are knobs on the drawers and cabinets tired looking? This is a good time to replace that hardware with elegant brass, pewter or glass fixtures. How about the shower door? Think about replacing it with an anti-stain and corrosion-proof glass door. A frameless door would fit the elegant theme you are trying to achieve. A shower door with a towel rack as part of the design would be pretty and practical at the same time.
Add The Decorative Touches - This is where your notes and your decorating file will come in handy. For example, if you cut out a picture of an elegant living room with a crystal chandelier and matching sconces, choose that look for your master bathroom. If you loved a wall grouping of hand-painted porcelain plates that was featured in a dining room, copy that look in the bathroom. Did you like the wrought iron furniture that you saw in a patio picture? Then select one small wrought iron occasional chair to place in the bathroom.
Shop at boutiques and at antique stores for one-of-a-kind decorative pieces that you can use on the bathroom countertops. A final touch will be to choose plush terry towels and to have them monogrammed in gold. To learn more, contact a company like Griggs & Son Glass & Mirror.
