Reinventing the decor, colors, lighting, and layout in your bathroom creates an oasis in the home to start off your day refreshed and rejuvenated, or relax and de-stress at the end of a long day.
Here are a few updates you can make during bathroom renovations to transform this heavily used, yet often overlooked, space in your home.
How Can I Transform My Walls in a Bathroom Renovation?
Wall and decor styles change naturally over time, and you may find your once-trendy wallpaper is no longer in style – or not quite as fresh as it once was.
Color Scheme and Paint
Removing or replacing wallpaper patterns or adding a fresh coat of textured paint can dramatically transform your home’s bathroom. Creating textures and dimensions with paint can give the impression of a much larger space while still remaining cost effective.
Extend this modernization throughout the rest of your home by reimagining your color scheme and freshening up paint from room to room. Selecting lighter colors serves to brighten a dark space or make a smaller room feel more spacious.
Mosaic Dimension and Tiles
Adding mosaic or subway tile is another way to update your bathroom and create a clean slate. Mold and mildew can build up after years of daily use.
Tile patterns add interest and whimsy to a space while calming neutrals create a spa-like experience.
To make this often-overlooked space fit neatly into the flow of your home, using a complementary- or even the same- tile in your kitchen during kitchen remodelingto create a more cohesive feel.
Looking for a more creative design element to set your home apart? A vertical arrangement of succulents, also known as a living wall, breathes life into your space while enhancing the feel of a zen environment.
Renew Your Faucets and Plumbing Fixtures
Faucets and other plumbing fixtures should be checked regularly due to the high mineral content of San Diego tap water. Extended contact with hard water can cause clogs or erosion in the least visible parts of your bathroom.
Whether you select modern, classic, or trendy faucets, they can transform the look and feel of your space while renewing the functionality of your water dispersion. Further reflect this style in your kitchen or other bathrooms throughout the house for a simple, yet dramatic, revamp for your home’s value.
It is also worth checking the plumbing in your home to ensure all pipes are safe and leak-free to prevent further issues down the road. Keeping plumbing throughout the house up to date is one aspect of a home remodel that shouldn’t be overlooked.
Adding Spa Functionality in Your Bathroom Renovation
If you are looking to get that honeymoon suite feel for your master bathroom, consider installing a water feature or sauna. These ambient features such as a waterfall in your bathtub create that much-desired spa retreat bathroom within your home that will perfectly complement your home workout routine.
Installing a new hot tub or jacuzzi in your master bedroom is another popular selling point for increasing your luxury home remodel’s return on investment.
Benefits of Bathroom Renovation in Floor Design
Updating your bathroom’s flooring is one way to change up the look and feel of your space. Due to excess moisture, tile or granite is a popular choice rather than wood that tends to warp or mold-inviting carpet. Warm up your wet feet with throw rugs and shower mats in fun colors and patterns.
Take your bathroom to the next level with heated flooring. Radiant heat is a smart way to heat your bathroom or home from the ground up by evenly warming the air and using less power than traditional heaters. No more cold toes in the morning!

Extend new flooring throughout the rest of the home by incorporating similar tile patterns or upgrading to hardwood in your kitchen and hallways. Updating your home’s flooring is one long-term investment you can make in the value and style of your home.
Use Decor to Tie It All Together
During bathroom renovations, it is important to not overlook the details. Towels, shower curtains, wall art, plants, and other enhancements put the finishing touches on your space to tie your bathroom design ideastogether or add dimension.
Custom built nooks in the shower offer storage or the perfect space for a flickering candle. An orchid on a corner shelf or perched on the bathtub edge brings life inside. Curated art such as black and white photography or small countertop statues add a chic touch.
Just be mindful and select moisture tolerant decor as damp bathroom environments may warp some features or cause mold to grow. Popular water resistant decor for bathrooms includes plants that thrive in high moisture as well as stone statues that are easy to wipe clean.
