Achieve a Stylish, Safe Bathroom in Little Time

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: BathInterior

Many homeowners are looking to redo and update their homes, but with busy schedules, they often only have time on the weekends. While a complete overhaul of the house might be unrealistic for this time frame, a bathroom makeover is completely possible.

For a weekend makeover, focus on the following:

Paint

Be sure to choose a semi-gloss or bathroom-specific paint, since the steam from hot showers and excessive water flow can make the bathroom a harsh environment.

Faucets

When selecting your faucet, consider style, finish, coordinating products and quality. The new Moen Boardwalk bath collection, for instance, features a blend of vintage design and classic lines for a stunning look in any bath — while also offering a wide selection of matching showering products and accessories. It’s available in chrome and Moen’s Spot Resist Brushed Nickel finishes, which does exactly what it says — resists fingerprints and water spots. Plus, Moen products feature a limited lifetime warranty to ensure quality.

Accessories

Bath accessories, such as robe hooks, paper holders or towel bars, are an ideal way to keep your room looking neat and coordinated. But the latest products also can add thoughtful functionality — and even safety — to your bath.

For instance, are you tired of finding towels on the counter or floor, rather than hanging on the towel ring? Put this pet peeve in the past with the new Moen Retractable Towel Ring. The new accessory offers the traditional benefit of a towel ring, with a retractable cord to allow the towel to be used while it remains neatly in place.

Showering

The shower is a place to escape and relax — so be sure to find products to enhance this space. Today’s showerheads come in a variety of designs — wallmount, handheld, multi-function, rainshower — or a combination of all. Find the one that suits your showering style and be sure to choose a finish to coordinate with the rest of your bath.

Need more space in your tub/shower? Try adding a curved shower rod. In addition to adding a unique style statement in your bath, it’ll add up to six more inches of elbow room. Finish the look with a new set of Moen double shower curtain rings that offer a unique double-hook design to separate the decorative curtain from the liner.

Accents

Once you’ve chosen all the hardware for your bath, you’ll need to think of the softer accents to help pull your design together. A new shower curtain, decorative towels, throw rug and curtains will add the finishing touch to your new space.
