Roller shades add texture and color to give a tired bathroom a bright, new look
Oct 28 2010
Re-doing a bathroom is one of the most expensive renovations that homeowners face, but making small changes can breathe new life into a tired bathroom without breaking the bank.
Older bathrooms can be given new life with small, inexpensive changes.
HGTV.com advises homeowners to view older fixtures and tiling as retro, rather than dated, and to focus on a color palette that will play into this theme. Adding accessories that are reminiscent of a previous era is another way to enhance this style.
To give bathrooms a warmer look, homeowners can add texture to the walls by hanging fabric rather than wallpaper, the website suggests. Soaking fabric in liquid starch will cause it to adhere to the wall easily, which can later be removed just as easily with water and a sponge.
Changing the hardware on bathroom cabinetry can change the look of a wood vanity and storage area from contemporary to traditional, or vice versa.
Depending on how the windows are situated in a bathroom and how much the room needs to be shielded for privacy, roller shades are a versatile choice for bathroom windows. They come in light filtering, blackout and sunscreen fabrics in a variety of textures and colors.
