How do I make my bathroom a show place?

Pair Your Bath Vanity Choice with Unusual Bath Decor

The bath vanity and bathroom cabinetry you choose is essential to any bath remodel. But you aren't done there. Depending on your personal tastes and budget, there are numerous ways you can make your bath truly unique -- and they are only limited by your imagination. The best way to get ideas for remodeling a bath include the Internet, TV shows, library books and magazines.

Be sure to consider different styles such as contemporary and traditional -- and don't be afraid to mix aspects of these styles if you want. One way to make your bath stand out is to have curved bath cabinets, either on the wall on on the floor. Curves soften a room and make it more soothing, but you might have to consult a professional woodworker to have these cabinets made. You might also consider a claw foot bath tub, typically associated with old heavy, cast-iron tubs of by-gone years. Newer ones incorporate a variety of styles, colors and faucet fixtures. A claw foot tub has a lip that curves back on itself forming a smooth rim so it can be attractive to the eye. Sometimes one end can be higher offering a place to recline.

If your bathroom gets less usage, why not install a glass shelf cabinet with lighting to showcase some treasured porcelain or other collectibles? Glass shelves can also be mounted on the wall to hold candles, fluffy towels, even herb pots if you have a lot of natural light in the bathroom. Another way to make your own personal statement in the bath is through ceramic tile or mosaic patterns behind your bath vanity, on the floor or around the tub. These designs can be used no matter what your personal style and they can be custom created by you or an interior designer.

For your bath vanity you can select a showy wood species such as bird's-eye maple. If you purchase veneer bath cabinets, this can be quite affordable. Using wainscoting along a bath wall is another idea that will set you bath apart. If you have a family heirloom piece, don't be afraid to incorporate it into your bath design. With the variety of bath cabinetry and bathroom vanities now on the market, it will be easy to match or contrast.
