While the guest bathroom might not be where most homeowners spend their time, it is an important reflection of the home’s design. Often, the guest bathroom is neglected during home remodels and slowly begins to fall out of style.
Kingston Brass carries a variety of beautiful bathroom fixtures, perfect for upgrading any size bathroom that needs a facelift. Check out the following signs that a guest bathroom is in need of an update and take a few quick steps to remedy the design.
Out of Date Designs
A sure sign that it’s time to give a guest bathroom an upgrade is when the room features numerous out-of-date designs.
Some designs that have gone out of style include:
- Monotone or gray cabinets
- Subway tiles
- Large frameless mirrors
- An all-white scheme
Think about swapping out some of these outdated designs for newer styles such as:
- A colorful design scheme
- Live plants, potentially even a living wall of plants
- Complementary finishes on fixtures
Leaky and Out of Style Faucets
Nothing makes a bathroom look more outdated than an old faucet. Whether the faucet is leaky or simply out of style, updating faucets is a quick fix for a guest bathroom.
When updating a faucet, think about what finish will pair best with the improved bathroom design. For example, a matte black faucet will make a great partner for an undermount white sink. Pair this with a new countertop and stained wood cabinets to bring a fresh look to the space.
Old Bathtub / Shower
Similar to an outdated bathroom faucet, an old bathtub or shower can make a guest bathroom look drab and outdated. The following are all signs that a tub or shower should be replaced for a fresh look:
- The tub basin or shower floor is stained
- The shower wall features subway tiles
- The bathtub features an outdated color, such as mauve or baby blue
- The tub or shower leaks
Upgrading a bathtub or shower is a fast way to dramatically improve the appearance of a guest bathroom.
Damaged or Outdated Paint
One of the most simple DIY tasks on this list is a coat of new paint. If the paint in a guest bathroom is peeling, cracking, damaged, or simply an outdated color, it’s time for a fresh look. Additionally, as mentioned above, all-white bathroom schemes are no longer in style. A paint job is a perfect way to add a splash of color to the room.
