Features You Can Upgrade To Take Your Bathroom To The Next Level

Craving an elevated bathroom space but not ready for a full remodel? By choosing a few key elements to upgrade, you can take your bathroom from dingy to spectacular. You can choose one or two high-leverage items, or go all out and update each of the following features. No matter your approach, you’re sure to see an improvement in your everyday routine with these luxurious bathroom upgrades.

1. Mirror

One of the highest-impact bathroom features to upgrade is the mirror. Bathroom mirrors typically occupy quite a bit of wall space, and they come in a wide variety of styles and finishes. While it’s easy to underestimate the importance of a bathroom mirror once you’re accustomed to staring at the same one every day, the overall change to the bathroom style brought on by a new mirror can be stunning. 

To choose the right upgraded mirror for your bathroom, start by considering the desired functionality and feel of the updated space. Would you like a more functional mirror, perhaps with a pull-forward feature and a backlight, or even a small built-in magnification mirror for doing your makeup? Is this a guest bathroom that just needs a bit of glam, like a gold frame or a soft backlight? The overall style of your desired final project will dictate the type of mirror you install. If nothing else, increasing the size of your bathroom mirror can help make the space appear larger and brighter.

2. Tile

One of the more in-depth options for upgrading your bathroom is installing new tile. Bathrooms can feature tile on the walls, the floors, or both. Wall tile not only holds up well to the elements but also allows for bold patterns and accent colors to elevate the style of your bathroom and let your personality shine through. Whether you’re updating old and discolored existing tile or whether you’re installing brand new tile instead of laminate or other flooring, this project is sure to lend an entirely new look to your space. 

Working with a team like DeLeers can help ensure your new tile project goes smoothly and yields desired results. Professionals can help choose the right type of tile and grout for your bathroom project, since making the wrong selection can lead to mold issues thanks to the damp environment. Work with professionals for beautiful and long-lasting tile. 

Consider choosing features like heated flooring in conjunction with your new tile project, as capabilities like this can help improve your everyday life as well as boost the value of your home. Who wouldn’t want to step out of the shower and onto a nice warm floor each day? These seemingly small details can make all the difference in your daily routine.

3. Lighting

Bathrooms without proper lighting are more likely to feel dirty and musty. Upgrading the lighting in your bathroom is a great way to instantly increase the brightness of the space and make it feel shiny and clean. Proper lighting can also improve the functionality of a bathroom space. For example, if you use your bathroom as a place to apply your makeup each day, adding vanity lighting is sure to streamline that task and make it both easier and more enjoyable. 

In larger bathrooms and bathrooms with features like separate tubs, accent lighting can transform the entire space. Adding lights with a dimmer capability over the bathtub, for example, can allow for a luxurious and relaxing experience. Add to your desired style by choosing fixtures and finishes that coordinate with your mirror and other hardware, or elevate the overall feel with light fixtures like chandeliers.

4. Heated Towel Rack

Sometimes, the smallest details make all the difference. When it comes to improving your everyday routine through home upgrades, think of the small pleasures. Upgraded features like a heated towel rack in the bathroom can make it easier to start your morning routine or wind down at the end of the day. In addition to the luxury of using warm towels after each bath or shower, heated towel racks are also a great organization tool and come in a variety of styles.

5. Toilet

One of the most frequently overlooked targets for bathroom upgrades is the toilet itself. While it’s easy to dismiss the impact that a new and upgraded toilet can lend a bathroom space, leveling up your commode can make a huge impact in the comfort, style, and functionality of your bathroom overall. Plus, new technology allows for toilet upgrades to also mean energy and water savings for your home overall.

6. Faucets and Showerheads

For households looking to start small on their bathroom upgrades, faucets and showerheads are a great place to begin. With a wide range of finishes and every level of price and quality available, faucets and showerheads are one of the most customizable bathroom features of all. Set the tone for your new bathroom style by selecting modern hardware, or go classic with a brushed copper or shiny bronze. Choosing the right faucets and showerheads can also make a marked improvement in your water pressure, water conservation efforts, and overall shower experience.
