There is no quick fix-up to your home like decorating a bathroom. Redecorating a bathroom can usually be done inside of a weekend, and is a quick and easy way to update a major feature of your home. Regardless of the level of remodel that your bathroom needs, this is one room where a little work goes a long way. Your bathroom receives as much use, if not more, than any other space in your home, and should be a place that is soothing, relaxing, and enjoyable to be in. Stained tile and water damaged floors occur frequently in a bathroom, and replacing even one of these components, particularly the floor, can reinvent the room quickly and with little monetary investment. Here you will find some tips on decorating your bathroom with vinyl.
1. Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl flooring is one of the least expensive materials that you can choose in remodeling. Vinyl is inexpensive, easy to install, and comes in a wide variety of colors, patterns, and finishes. Vinyl flooring can be purchased at any home improvement store, as well as any flooring store. Vinyl floor tiles can even be found in retail stores in small amounts. Depending on the type, vinyl flooring can range in price from fifty cents per square foot to four dollars per square foot.
When determining the style of vinyl flooring that you want to use, you should consider how it will tie into the overall color and decorating scheme with the rest of the house as well. Neutral colors tend to be the most appealing to potential buyers, if you are considering fixing up the home for a potential sale. If the rest of the home is decorated in a retro style, there is vinyl to match. The great thing about vinyl is that they sky is the limit when it comes to how many choices you have. There are a variety of textures that mimic natural stone, or even realistic hardwood flooring. Regardless of the decor, there is a vinyl option that will complement.
Installing vinyl will depend largely on the types of vinyl product that you choose. Vinyl comes in sheets and various types of tiles. Some tiles are simply peel and stick. These tiles are not generally as durable as sheet vinyl, and should only be used in low traffic, low moisture areas. Sheet vinyl is easily installed, simply cut to the dimensions of the space to be covered, and glue it to the floor with vinyl adhesive.
Tips: Care of Vinyl
Vinyl is a very durable material. It is just about impervious to anything (with the exception of sharp objects), which makes it ideal for bathrooms and kitchens where there tends to be more moisture than in other parts of the home. Cleaning vinyl consists usually of sweeping up dirt and debris and mopping the vinyl with simple soap and water. An occasional wax may be used to keep the sheen of the vinyl in good shape.
