Hello World! Welcome Friends! Your bathroom gets a lot of use and it can soon start to look a bit tired and uninviting if the decor has seen better days, so rather than rushing to get your business done and move swiftly away from the depressing surroundings it’s time to turn your bathroom into a place that you love to spend time in.
Here are some inexpensive and easy facelift tips to rid yourself of tired tiles and even rusty faucets. Including a way to get the shower pumping properly again, and easy trick to revitalize your faucets, plus a simple but effective way of transforming your bathroom in an instant.
Not feeling the power in your shower?
An invigorating hot and powerful shower is a great way to awaken your senses and get ready for a busy day ahead, but your won’t be feeling that revitalized or refreshed if the shower is not pumping out the water enough to give you an enjoyable showering experience.
There are a couple of reasons why you might be suffering low pressure in your shower head.
A lot of current models tend to come with a water-saving device incorporated within the design that is called a reducer, for a good reason. It can reduce the flow of the water to barely a trickle in some cases, which is great for saving on your water bill but not so good when you want the water to blast out of the showerhead.
The radical solution would be to remove the reducer to improve the flow, but you could find that the cause is mineral deposits restricting the water flow, so check that when you take the showerhead off.
Spruce up your faucets
It is all very well enjoying a great shower by following that tip, but you still want to improve your surroundings if you can.
One way of doing that, if your remodeling budget allows you the chance to makes some changes, is to visit a site like http://www.uniquevanities.com/antique-double-sink-bathroom-vanity.html and see what sort of upgrades you can have to give your bathroom an instant lift with a new vanity.
If you want to try and lift the look of your existing faucets as an alternative, you could do that for very little money.
Hard water deposits take their toll on the surface and they can soon start to look a bit dingy even when you give them a wipe over. You can pick up some replacements for only a few dollars if you shop around but you could clean what you have by removing them and soaking them in vinegar.
After scrubbing them with a toothbrush to finish the job off, they should look clean and sparkling when you put them back.
Sort out those tiles
One of the quickest ways of spoiling the overall look and feel of your bathroom is to ignore any repairs needed to cracked and broken tiles.
It is not just the look of your bathroom that can be affected by broken or missing tiles, as they can let water in and allow moisture to cause some damage.
It is a simple job to cut around the broken tile by carefully using a small hammer or cold chisel. Apply a leveler compound and once it has set and is smooth, apply some mortar and fix a replacement tile in place.
Re-grouting is also an inexpensive way of lifting the look without spending much more than your time in fixing the problem.
Finally, a brilliant trick that can make such a difference in your bathroom is to ditch your boring and functional mirror for something that makes more of a statement.
If you don’t have much of a budget for remodeling your bathroom completely, spending money on an attractive mirror can pay dividends as it can instantly transform your bathroom space as well as being something you will get good use out of.
Having a large mirror in your bathroom can also create a feeling of space, which makes it a neat design trick that shouldn’t cost you much for a bit of mirror magic.
Many of these suggestions are normally within the scope of the someone with average DIY skills, but be realistic about your limitations and get someone in to do the job if you are worried about your competency, as it could end up costing you more if you have to get someone to rescue your makeover plans.
Julia Ritzenthaler, Founder, and President of Unique Online Furniture, Inc., was inspired to start the company while consulting to a home builder. She was surprised to discover how difficult it was for people living in outlying areas to complete a full-scale bathroom remodel due to limited options at the local brick and mortar home improvement stores. She saw an opportunity to offer a unique selection of bathroom vanities, mirrors and light fixtures delivered to a customer’s front door so that they could create the bathroom of their dreams.
