Guest Post: Bathroom Redecorating

I kind of love my friend Amanda. I tell her how overwhelmed I am with redecorating and remodeling the house, she offers to write a guest post for me. (She’s a freelance writer, so it’s totally win-win). She thought that since I was blogging from my bathroom last week, she would continue with the bathroom theme. I think she’s secretly making fun of me because she knows that with pink tile five feet high all around my one small bathroom, I can’t actually follow any of her tips. But I sure can dream!

Amazing Dream Bathroom

Redecorating Your Bathroom

If you want to redecorate your bathroom, there are many options that are available to you. Your home décor should be something that matches your unique style. But no matter what tastes you have, you will certainly find the accessories and furnishings to turn your bathroom into a much more beautiful place.

You can often find everything that you need at local stores, such as home renovation and hardware outlets, but if you want something special or don’t like what you see in stores, websites such as sell plenty of bathroom furnishings in different styles, such as antique, wooden and modern.

One of the most common renovations that people make in their bathrooms is the tiles. You can find these in many materials, colors and designs. But one type of bathroom tile that is becoming quite popular these days is the antibacterial tile.

While it doesn’t kill microbes by itself, once artificial UVA light or natural sunlight hits the tile, the materials contained in it will cause a chemical reaction that kills nearly all bacteria and viruses.

If you’re tired of the same old faucet, why not install a new one? A style that is popular these days is to install a faucet with a gold finish. This will give your bathroom a very luxurious and classic look. Of course, most of these faucets aren’t actually made of gold, but if you happen to have five figures to spend on a faucet, you can get one made out of solid gold too.

One new trend in bathroom redecoration is putting in a floating vanity. No, it doesn’t float on water, it’s just installed a foot or so off the ground and is mounted on a wall. These vanities are available in different colors, however white seems to be in style these days.

When doing a bathroom renovation project, you will first need to determine exactly the look that you’re going for and then finding the materials that will allow you to make the project go forward. Regarding installation, you have two basic options. If you like home improvement projects and are a “Do It Yourself” kind of person, then you can take care of installing everything by yourself.

Usually there is just a few hours of work involved. Or if you would like, there is always the possibility to hire a professional contractor who would do the installation work for you.

  7. Sylvia Ortiz says:

    If my bathroom looked like the one pictured, I would never come out! Unfortunately, ours is soo tiny, that the giant Shower Bowl would instead have to more reflect a tv dinner tray!! 🙁

  8. The bathroom pictured is beautiful, and thanks for the great tips!

  9. Nice read. Thanks!

  10. Nice read ~ thanks!

  11. Betsy Rubendall Barnes says:

    The one thing my dream bathroom would have is a huge tub in the floor 🙂

  12. Jennifer Jo Archdeacon says:

    Nope my dream bathroom wouldn’t look like that. It is just a little too over the top modern looking for me.

  13. Debra Gaswint says:

    That bathroom in the pic looks pretty dreamy to me. I have never seen a bathtub like that! I want one!

  14. Amazing bathroom!!! I am in love with the wood bath-tube!


  15. I love how my husband remodeled our bathroom, but in our next house…. Something BIGGER! 🙂 it’s a pretty small space.

  16. kelly nicholson says:

    you should see my would run for your life

  17. Karina Lee says:

  18. Wow love this bathroom so cool

  19. Judy Bradley says:

    Wow that is a gorgeous bathroom! My bathroom just got painted, new decorations, and a new wall cabinet, plus a new light fixture. I haven’t got a new faucet yet, but I will!

  20. Chelsea Saulpaugh says:

    I have never heard of an antibacterial tile. It sounds awesome. It would definately be one of the first things I change in my bathroom.

  21. LOVE that pic of that bathroom!! Absolutely gorgeous!!

  22. That would be a cool bathroom to have! Following you from blog hop. : )

  23. Brad Merrell says:

  24. Tiffany Kinney says:

    i’d love to have that bathroom!

  25. That looks like a getaway! I’d love to have that bathroom!

  26. Bonnie S. says:

    Very nice bathroom! Also enjoyed the read, thanks for the tips. I briefly heard about the newer tiles, but did not know they needed UVA lighting to cause the chemical reactions, very nice to know! 🙂

  27. Nice post – we are getting ready to redo one bath and put in another so this was a great read.

  28. As someone who has been looking at houses for a long time, let me suggest ignoring the gold faucet advice – that screams “hey, we just redecorated – in 1990!”

  29. Holly Robinson says:

    Thanks for the post 🙂

  30. Holly Robinson says:

    I love the designs!

  31. I’m always trying to explain to my husband why bathrooms are more than just a room to wash your hair & shave! For women it’s a retreat, I love that picture, it’s exactly what a bathroom should be!

  32. Wow what a great post, wish we had our own house so I could impliment these tips.

  33. I have to disagree with the time estimate. We did our main bathroom and it took a couple of weeks, luckily we had another bathroom off our bedroom but it was a big job. I guess it is all in what shape your bathroom is in the first place. Ours had to be gutted and a wall, plumbing and electrical components moved. Nice post though, I didn’t know they made antibacterial tiles.

  34. looks lovely! we just redid our bathroom and it was so much more work than I ever imagined! :)Gina

  35. when installing a floating sink, is all the plumbing in the wall?

  36. Melissa Stoneback-Tuttle says:

    OMGosh this is so friggen beautiful. I just love the way the pictured bathroom is done. I need to win the lottery so mine looks like that. 😛

  37. Melissa Stoneback-Tuttle says:

    I love this bathroom. It’s beautiful.

  38. Kathy Stuit says:

    WOW! I would love that bathroom! I’d live in it lol

  39. I definitely agree that you should put your own stamp all over your house, including your bathroom. You don’t have to have it like everyone says (white, white, white) you can have it however you like, it is your bathroom after all!

  40. Jessica H. says:

    Thank you for the ideas, we are going to be remodeling soon. The 1970s wallpaper has to go!!

  41. Thanks for the bathroom tips, I did not know about antibacterial tiles, the OCD in me is putting that on my bathroom renovation shopping list

  42. I didn’t know that there is antibacterial tile. We have a small bathroom with no ventilation. Just a window.(Our house was built in the 1930’s.) I love the photo and article. Very informative.

  43. Glittertrend says:

    Need to redecorate my bathroom! The pic looks so fancy *-*

  44. chelesa sims says:

    oh my,what a beautiful bathroom. I think this would be something like my dream bathroom

  45. I totally love the one shown in the picture!

  46. Alicia Ponce says:

    Oh wow, I will now dream of a bathroom like the one in the picture. Absolutely gorgeous!

  47. Anita Leibert says:

    The bathroom you have pictured is absolutely awesome! I’m fortunate that my hubby does alot of carpentry work and the both of us enjoy do it yourself projects. We’re currently doing a revamp of our bedroom. Thanks for sharing the bathroom pic. I’m going to tell hubby this is what I want next!! (I wish!)

  48. One with a big window to open for fresh air and that nice tub in your picture :o)

  49. Carrie Conley says:

    That is a pretty glamerous looking bathroom…I have never tried to redocorate a bathroom other than new curtains….

  50. I love claw foot tubs so that’s what I’d have in my ideal bathroom for sure.

  51. Riccioli D'oro says:

    I would not mind having a bath as well! Light, heat, relax and panoramic views.. a dream!

  52. Mr Thomas Ticknor says:

    The bathroom picture is amazing. I would love to have a round tub in my bathroom. There are some really great ideas to think about.
