Are you planning to buy one of the new homes in Columbus GA? There are several outstanding communities to consider including Riverbrook and Pinewood. One of the first things you’ll do after signing the real estate contract is determine how to decorate your new space.

Many home buyers focus on the major rooms first, like the kitchen, living room and master bedroom. But there’s another space you should give some serious thought to when it comes to décor: the guest bath. If you plan to do much entertaining in your new home, your guest bath will likely see plenty of use. So why not show it off in the best possible manner? Here are some tips on how you can glam up the guest bathroom in your new home.

Walls – Bold colors and rich-looking wallpaper can give a small bathroom a lot of life, when done right. For instance, you could make your guest bath feel dramatic and luxurious by pairing a dark colored ceiling with wallpaper in a contrasting color and texture, that is separated by white molding.

Floors – Tile is often the choice for bathrooms, since it is water resistant. But many people continue wood flooring from living areas into a guest bathroom for a seamless look. One way to keep the look of hardwoods, with the convenience of tile is to install a tile that looks like wood, but has the features of concrete tile. Choosing a pattern for the flooring can infuse some additional style into the space. You can also introduce some color and texture for your guest bath flooring with the use of a geometric or shag rug.

Vanity – Installing a floating vanity with detailed doors presents a great opportunity to help the small space of your guest bath stand out. Another option is to forgo the cabinet altogether for a distinctive look that will get noticed by your guests.

Lighting – Good lighting is key in every space. But that doesn’t mean you need to go with traditional bathroom lighting for your guest bath. Create a luxurious, modern touch by hanging several glass pendants instead of the traditional over-the-mirror, wall-mounted fixtures.

Hardware – Bring some sparkle into your guest bath by adding distinctive hardware to the cabinets.

Mirror – Installing a uniquely shaped mirror in the guest bath, instead of the traditional square or rectangle glued to the wall, is an excellent way to elevate the look of your space.
