Transform Your Bathroom

Whether your taste is contemporary, traditional or somewhere in-between, bathroom vanity can provide a central focal point for your entire bathroom, offering both style and function. With a wealth of styles and a wide range of materials to choose from, you’ll have no problem finding a vanity that reflects your unique taste, style and personality.

In a larger bath, an ornate, intricately detailed vanity can make the room feel like an entirely different space, while smaller bathrooms will benefit from more practical vanities that feature plenty of storage for various necessities.

Selecting Your Vanity  

Vanities come in a variety of styles including, single sink, double sink, corner, curved front, bow front and wall-hung. When selecting a vanity, you will want to choose one that is durable, stylish and maximizes available space.

With a wealth of designs and a wide range of materials to choose from, you’ll have no problem finding the perfect vanity for your bathroom project. Keep the following questions in mind as you shop:

  • What material is the best fit for your bathroom?
  • How high would you like the vanity top to be?
  • How large is your bathroom?
  • How much space is available for the bathroom vanity?
  • Who primarily uses the bathroom?
  • Do you prefer a framed or frameless design?

Design Essentials 

A bathroom vanity is basically a freestanding “dressing table” that contains a sink and several storage compartments. It hides the plumbing, and offers counter space for toiletries and other essentials. Ceramic tile, marble and solid-surface materials let you create unique designs that enhance your specific décor style, from eclectic to traditional.

Vanity Styles

Overview

The style of your bathroom should reflect your unique personality and taste. However, before you begin selecting styles and colors, you need to determine how the vanity will be used and the frequency. You should also consider the look of other bathroom fixtures when purchasing a vanity.

The four major style trends in home décor are listed below, but the real key is to use a combination of materials, furnishings and accessories to create a style that is truly your own.

Traditional

Classic lines and decorative trimwork are the cornerstones of traditional style. With furniture-style cabinets, ornate moulding and subdued color schemes there is no question why traditional décor never goes out of style.

Textures and finishes are generally smooth and metals are classically sculpted and polished, creating a harmonious balance of tranquility and sophistication.

Contemporary (Euro-Asian)

More than modern, contemporary style is highlighted by smooth cabinetry, sleek faucets and symmetrical arrangements. The absence of clutter, clean unbroken lines and minimalist décor lend a Zen-like Asian influence to many contemporary designs.

Colors are generally monochromatic with a mix of smooth textures and sleek materials, characterized by unique curves and angles.

Casual

Natural, relaxed and uncomplicated, casual décor is laid-back simplicity defined. Warm, cozy and inviting casual style tends to be intentionally more functional than decorative by design.

Colors are usually similar in hue and can range from soft pastels to warm, natural shades. Textures and finishes have more detail while metals and cabinetry tend to be charmingly worn or aged.

Eclectic

An assorted blend of styles, textures and colors, eclectic style mixes a variety of looks to create a unique and interesting design statement. This freestyle design isn’t a random hodgepodge of ideas, but a planned look that is integrated with one or more common elements that tie everything together.

Colors are complimentary and provide bold contrasts. Textures and finishes are varied but when merged form a balanced blend.

How to Stage Your Home with Color

How to Stage Your Home with Color, from BenjaminMoore.com

Experts say that staged homes sell faster and for higher prices than those that are not, and paint color is a low-cost but effective way of showcasing your home. The following home staging tips and ideas will help in guiding your paint color choices.

Neutralize

The colors potential buyers see when they enter your home should be neutral so that the buyers will not be distracted by someone else’s style. They should see the walls of your home as a blank canvas on which to project their own preferences and style. But “neutral” doesn’t necessarily mean white. Using subtle color can actually enhance the buyer’s experience, so repaint walls that have strong colors with rich neutral hues. Neutral colors to consider:

Update and Refresh

If your wallpaper has a distracting design or is outdated, remove it and add a fresh coat of paint for a more current, updated look. A low-sheen product will help reduce the imperfections on walls and ceilings. You can also use color to highlight the architectural details and features of your home.

Maximize Your Space

Light, clean, organized spaces appear larger. So clean and declutter, and give your walls a fresh coat of paint in a light neutral color to bring the room to life and make it seem more expansive. One home staging idea that can help expand your space visually: paint the moldings the same color as the wall, which gives an illusion of higher walls.

Refresh Outside Spaces

First impressions are everything, so besides trimming your hedges and grass, be sure your front door and any fencing or mailbox posts are freshly painted. And because buyers love decks, porches, and patios, also make sure they’re freshly painted or stained.
