  • Creating Modern Bathroom Drama – In a Great Way!

    Modern Bathroom Remodeling

    If you’ve been considering remodeling your modern bathroom, you may have been surprised by the dark colors, including black, navy blue,s and charcoal grays appearing in some of the most inspiring rooms. In the past, these hues have often been dismissed by the idea that they might make a room appear too small, not allow enough light, or seem too drab.

    Add huge drama and depth as an alternative to the perhaps sterile-looking all-white modern bathrooms that have become so commonplace by using or combining these shades appropriately. If you’re ready for an extraordinary modern bathroom or if you’re simply looking for ways to incorporate these colors for a modern and updated look, here are some terrific ideas.

    Tired of the All White Bathroom?

    If you've had the all white aesthetic for too long, it can get old. Easily update to a classic black and white palette without a major expense or remodeling. Changing a plain white sink out to a sleek and modern, square or circular-shaped, above-counter vessel in black can make a great addition to any sized modern bathroom; try The Lacee 2802 in Obisidian. Double the effect and add extra get-ready space by adding double sinks side by side. Then, consider changing a boring vanity countertop to a sleek black granite one.

    Pops of Color

    If you want to incorporate smaller pops of color into your modern bathroom, matte black finishes are showing up everywhere, including on mirror frames, plumbing fixtures, lighting options, and décor. Wallpaper is another terrific option, adding light touches in a subtle pattern or bold vertical stripes.

    Not Just Black and White

    Of course, black or black and white are not the only worthy options to examine. In fact, mixing pale grays and deep navy blues, especially when mixed with natural wood finishes, can create a moody, soothing, yet modern feel. Even modern bathrooms that currently have a splash of color can benefit from the boldness and style that the addition of black or charcoal gray can add. The whole trick is in balancing the additions for a harmonic effect.

    With so many exciting looks available today, there's sure to be one that fits your personality and style. Seeking professional advice can give you fresh new ideas and may help you successfully attain the look you choose.

  • 4 Simple Tricks For Keeping A Clean Bathroom

    The best method to keep a clean bathroom is to do it routinely. Whether easy to clean stainless steel sinks or vitreous china, cleaning can still be a bit of a hassle. Cleaning the tub and shower walls in bathrooms may only be a once a week item while other areas may need more frequent attention, however, there are usually some tasks that seem harder than others to get sparkling clean and keep that way. If you’ve been wondering how to get rid of stubborn buildup, germs, and dirt, here are some expert tips for a clean bathroom that may help make cleanup a breeze.

    Tips For A Clean Bathroom

    1. Bathtub rings – A natural and effective way to remove that ring around the tub is to cut a grapefruit in half and pour a tablespoon of salt onto it. Then simply rub it around the ring and watch it disappear. Even the smallest details of a clean bathroom make a difference.

    2. Shower and bathtub tile surrounds – Save your back and knees by using a clean broom and cleanser, then rinse using a bucket or a shower wand. When dealing with deep dirt stains, empty the bathtub of water and fit a soft scrubbing brush onto your drill, saving yourself some elbow grease. Remove soap scum buildup on glass shower doors by rubbing a damp dryer sheet across them. Spritz diluted bleach from a spray bottle on grout lines and finish with a clean mop to remove watermarks. Don’t forget, from time to time, to throw the shower curtain, if you’re using one, into the washing machine with a little white vinegar and hang it wet to dry rather using the dryer. Remember to work smarter, not harder for your clean bathroom.

    3. Showerhead residue and germs – Simply place a plastic bag around the showerhead and fill with white vinegar. Wrap an elastic band around to secure it and leave it for an hour. Remove and rinse. Regular removal of bacteria is integral to a clean bathroom.

    4. Toilet brush – Put a little liquid disinfecting cleanser in the toilet brush holder to keep the brush ready for the next use.
    Bathrooms do seem to attract dirt and grime but keeping them clean is important if you don’t want germs spreading through your home or the embarrassment of having guests needing to use a dirty bathroom. Many people are unaware about how to clean a bathroom effectively, but with a few simple tricks, you can easily keep your clean bathroom germ free and fresh.
