As homeowners begin to look into a renovation, they may decide a complete makeover isn’t necessary. Or maybe they would like to update just particular feature to enhance a room’s look. For the bathroom, if a renovation isn’t on the table, consider these 4 simple updates to recreate your space.
Update Your Floors
Add value and style to your bathroom floors. Porcelain, ceramic and natural stone continue to be super popular with homeowners and designers. Also you’ll get the most added value with an almost dollar for dollar investment.
Exchange Your Shower Head
Should you sell your home, even the simplest detail plays a role. Therefore, minor updates shouldn’t be avoided. By switching out your shower head, you can turn your shower into an oasis. Consider a rain head for its dollar for dollar return on investment.
Install New Lighting
Lighting makes a huge impact in a room creating the ambience you desire. Instead of glaring, blinding lightbulbs above the sink, install task lighting. These lights can be recessed into the ceiling, or even select a pendant or sconce fixture to help illuminate the mirror. Track lighting also continues to be a wonderful option, providing lights to sit along a track on the ceiling or wall. You can adjust their position to shine wherever you want.
Switch Out Your Sink
With so many tasks taking place around the sink, why not update it for a look that appeals to the eye? Not only can sinks be fun, but also they can introduce luxury into your bathroom. Simple details like a new shiny chrome faucet and porcelain handles can add a lot of value to your home. Integrated sinks, in which there are no edges or hangovers from the countertop to the sink, continue to be a homeowner’s favorite. Also, vessel sinks are a creative way to bring life and uniqueness into the space.

This spring, I thought it would be a really cool idea for the team here at CCW to share with you some of our favorite things for the home. Currently, I’m in the process of redesigning my own bathroom, and have already started selecting products for the project. Checkout a few of my favorite things for the bathroom!
Moen 90 degree Chrome 8″ Widespread Faucet
I absolutely love a modern style sink faucet. You’ll enjoy its low arc design and 1.5 GPTM (gallon per minute) flow rate capabilities. The attractive and sleek look compliments a matching Moen 90 degree Chrome Handheld Shower Unit.
Kohler Tresham Rectangular Drop-in Bathroom Sink
Of course my Moen 90 degree faucet needs a sink with style! I have fallen in love with Kohler’s Tresham Rectangular Drop-in Sink. Its elegant design with 8″ widespread faucet holes is simple and blends a classic American look with a modern eclectic sensibility. The basin’s raised rim helps keep water from splashing over the side and also adds a distinctive design element.
Barroca Soapstone Countertop
Mined from Brazil, I find the Barroca Soapstone to be a classic tone for any interior space. This gray soapstone is a representation of the classic soapstone look: very traditional dark charcoal color with occasional white veining.
Crate and Barrel Colby Mirror
Available from Crate and Barrel, this architectural mirror hangs on the wall with modern attitude. Its sleek frame is a brushed stainless steel that is attractive and safe for use in any bathroom. What I enjoy most about this product is that it comes in a variety of sizes and shapes, including rectangular and square.
Panasonic Quiet Fan
Ventilation is important for any bathroom because it removes odors from the space. Fans also remove moisture, which decreases the level of humidity inside. High humidity can damage building materials and can cause mold growth. The Panasonic Quiet Fan provides exactly what I’m looking for to improve indoor air quality. What I also enjoy about this fan is that the noise level is minimal. Perfect for those moments you need to escape from it all.
