When you look at the design of an old half-bathroom, one of two things might run through your mind: “This is so tiny that it will never be organized.” Or you might think: “This is so tiny that it could look so charming with everything exactly where it needs to be.” If you see it the second way, we like the way you think, and you’re absolutely right! Many beautiful and easy guest bathroom remodel tips are out there. As long as you know the look you’re going for and what items you want in the bathroom, the rest should be fun!
Easy Guest Bathroom Remodel Tips
1. Update your toilet.
It’s not the most pleasant thing to think about or shop for, but many advancements have been made in recent years in this area. Newer toilets look fancier and provide options for water conservation.
2. Change your cabinets and sink.
Rip out that old cabinet and sink and replace it with something more stylish and that matches the tone of your overall bathroom. Are you looking for something bright and brilliant? Consider an all-white piece. Or are you more of a brown-and-black kind of person? Then consider a wood cabinet with a marble or granite countertop. There are so many possibilities, but truly the sink and cabinet will make or break the design of your new bathroom. Choose wisely, and this part will be exciting.
3. Retile your floor.
If you want to make your guest bathroom appear larger, you might want to go for white or other light-colored tiles – as long as they match the cabinets.
Also consider using larger tiles. Larger tiles make a room appear bigger, and you can use less grout, helping you to avoid an overwhelming checkered look.
4. Choose stylish mirrors.
While this is definitely one of the easy guest bathroom remodel ideas, you have so many options that you might have a hard time deciding. But that’s OK. There’s no rush. Take your time and choose the mirrors that fit your budget, your style and the tone of the bathroom.
No matter what, though, make sure you take advantage of all that mirrors have to offer. In addition to providing you with additional storage space if you choose an entire vanity, mirrors beautify a room and also make it appear larger. They also reflect light, making the room brighter. And of course, a bright room means less need for artificial lighting, saving you money on energy costs.
5. Design your storage space.
Considering that this is a guest bathroom, you likely will not need an enormous amount of storage space. However, talk with your bathroom designer about creating cabinets and vanities that will allow you to keep the necessities as organized as possible.
6. Buy matching products.
You won’t need to buy things like towels and rugs until after the remodel, but if you think about what types of colors you want, it will help you decide on the overall tone of your bathroom.
