How to Create the Perfect Bathroom
Create Something Bold
At Kiba Studios, we’re always on board to help our clients create something unique and style-bending. As you think about what you want to get out of your bathroom remodel, consider some of your favorite design styles and brainstorm ways that you can incorporate one — or several — into your new bathroom. Our designers can help you find the perfect complements for your new countertops, cabinets, tiles, and anything else you want to include. If you have pictures of bathrooms or styles you love, be sure to bring them to one of our showrooms and we’ll help you seamlessly blend the concepts together.
Invest in Lighting
The right lighting is essential throughout your home, but your bathrooms and kitchens are some of the most important areas to illuminate. You need to be able to see what you’re doing as you get ready, and you also need to be able to wind down and adjust the light levels after a long day. If your bathroom currently has overhead lights and a few lights above the mirror, but not much else, then speak with a Kiba Studios designer about how you can incorporate different kinds of lighting into your new space. Ambient lighting, in-shower lighting, and adjustable dimmers can all make your new bathroom much more functional and inviting!
Don’t Forget the Little Things
After you’ve checked all of the main boxes, you should turn your eye toward knick-knacks, decor, and small items you have in your bathroom.
Candles are a great way to make your entire bathroom smell great and look elegant, and we recommend finding colors and styles that match your new design. Towels, washcloths, and anything else you have out in the open should be cohesive as well.
This is the perfect opportunity to invest in new amenities, so give some serious thought to the items that can stay, and which items have already overstayed their welcome. That plunger you’ve been carrying from place to place since you were in college? It’s time to ditch the eyesore and upgrade to something that you can either tuck away or incorporate into your new design. The trashcan that you’ve had for so long that you don’t even remember where you originally bought it? It’s time to find something that’s more in line with the new atmosphere.
Remember That You’re Investing
At the end of the day, any home improvement project should be thought of as a long-term investment. Whether you’re planning to stay put for the foreseeable future or you’re planning to sell your home in the next few years, your bathroom remodel will add a significant amount of value to your home.
While it’s always important to create a realistic budget and do your best to stick to it, we also recommend creating a list of splurge items that you can incorporate into your new bathroom. You don’t have to — and shouldn’t — purchase everything on the list (it’s a splurge list, after all!), but you should feel perfectly fine with treating yourself to something you really want, even if it means going slightly beyond your budget. You’ll probably remodel your bathroom just this once, so do everything in your power to make sure that you’ll be satisfied with for years to come! In five years, you’ll be happy you purchased the amenities that you truly wanted.
