We al l know that having a wonderful bathroom changes the whole feel of home! We all love the chic style because normally that is the room that will lack style of it’s own. But doing some updates can make a huge difference. Several years ago – I took a bath in the home made it look so different! An updated feel to it! We took on a big project to get new tile, and then do some different things. Today in many of the homes – you’ll find that they border the mirror with a wood trim! Which gives that flat mirror a bold look. But I decided to do something different. I thought if I’d spend a few more dollars and purchase some extra special tile that was long & narrow with a unique styling to it. I trimmed out the mirror with that tile! WOW! What a difference! That mirror popped and looked like a frame mirror and not a fixed one on the wall! Of course – tile is not an easy project. But again – I wanted this smaller bath to have some details. On the tile project, I took the 14″ square tiles and did the walls and floors to match But – I added a little pizazz. I did it by taking the tile placing 2 as diamond shapes on the wall and bordered it with smaller 2″ tile to match in color! Now – I’ve taken a typical square tile and added a new dimension to it. Plus I mirrored that same pattern in the shower on the floor. So both areas of tile have some design to it! You don’t have to go to such a dramtic project to make changes to the bath. Especially if you are considering to putting the home for sale in Johnson County. There are so many things that don’t cost nearly as much. Changing out items can make a huge impact!
