Choose the Right Paint Colour

Choosing the right colour may be the most important key so you may have wanted a result at the end. We all imagine the old-time “painted” with dark and faded paint colours but on the contrary, there are a lot of warm and modern colours that can give the same class as the dark violet etc. We advise you to use warm colours like faded yellow or light apple green, always keeping in mind the colours of the furniture. One important thing that you are lucky to have nowadays is the quality of colour. Make sure to use anti-microbial paint that protects your walls from moisture and mildew. Even though it can cost you more at the moment, you will save afterwards because these paints will last forever. Another important thing to mention is that you have to keep the bathroom untouched and unused till the paint has finished drying. colour ideas

Select the Faucet First

We need to keep it simple for the faucet colour, we advise you to choose between gold and silver ones. Also if you want to go a little extra you may choose different sink faucets with different flower styles etc.bathroom_faucet

Think About Your Storage and Counterspace Needs

We do not want our bathroom to be all looks and not at all easily usable. That’s why we need to think about storage so we can have easy access to all the things in our bathroom. The traditional sink offers a nice classy look but lets no room for a storage area and it’s very limited in the counter surface. The best choice is to have a big antic looking wood cabinet with a big bowl sink in the top. The bowl sinks look perfect with our previous chosen classy faucets.

Make Flawless Flushing a Priority

Usually, older homes have some serious problems with the pipeline system. That’s why firstly you must hire a plumber to fix these issues before continuing to choose the right toilet. Most old houses have iron pipelines that get easily rusted and start leaking. Installing new plastic pipelines will save you a lot of money in the features.flushing-toilet

Flatter Yourself with the Right Light

In most cases, bathrooms have small windows and that’s why they lack natural lighting. Installing a professional and custom lighting system will be your best investment in order to bring to life your bathroom renovation ideas for your old house. The perfect place to pay the most attention while placing lights is around the mirror that is located on top of the sink. The new led lights camouflage as old lamps, not only will help you decorate your bathroom but also will help you getting ready in the morning or putting your make-up on before going out.bathroom-lighting-ideas

Pick Porcelain

Bathrooms of the old houses let you a wide variety of choices of your tiles. You can choose one colour tiles or go crazy on tiles with different shapes, colours and designs because everything is acceptable. We advise you to choose between porcelain tiles design because they are way cheaper and need less little maintenance over cement and encaustic ones.

The old house bathroom may have an outdated electrical system and we will try to give you some renovation ideas. Your newly renovated bathroom will need a new electrical system too because the modern appliances like a washer machine or hairdryer will need much more electrical power than the old electrical system can not handle.

Control Air Temperature and Humidity

Bathrooms are rooms with the highest levels of temperature and humidity. You need to be careful about choosing the right heater and ventilation system. The best thing to have is the top middle size window that can bring fresh air and increase the airflow. If it’s impossible to have a window a modern ventilation system is a must.
