Remodeling can be an exciting opportunity to show off your creative endeavors, especially in the bathroom or other personalized spaces in your home. While this space is more private and can be overlooked in home renovations, choosing the right bathroom finish can complement the room beautifully. With endless affordable options, here are several bathroom remodel finishes that can enhance any design.
Chrome bathroom remodel finishes tend to be more popular due to their affordability and sleek look. This finish is available in many options for bathroom appliances and is also very durable. Routine cleaning is a must for chrome finishes, as this material can easily pick up fingerprints and water spots with frequent use. Using household cleaning products or wiping down the surfaces with a clean towel will do the trick to keep your surfaces clean and glowing.
Polished, Satin, and Brushed Nickel Finishes
Nickel finishes come in three different styles, so you have plenty to choose from if you're designing a new bathroom. Polished nickel is the most expensive out of the three, looking very similar to chrome. Satin and brushed nickel finishes are quite similar in style; however, brushed nickel finishes have brush marks going in the same direction on the surface. Satin finishes are created with a particular treatment process to achieve a subtle, muted look.
Copper finishes, unlike others, have natural antibacterial properties that help keep the surface clean from wear and tear. These natural healing properties help scratches fade over time with no additional maintenance required from the homeowner. Copper also boasts a luxurious look and complements marble and granite surfaces.
Brass finishes easily align with a vintage aesthetic due to its classical look, with both polished and satin options. With gold’s rising popularity, brass is the cheaper option that can still successfully elevate an ornate design. Although it's more expensive than other common finishes, both polished finishes and satin finishes are very easy to keep clean and are durable, making this a great option for homes with young children.
As more bathroom remodel finishes rise in popularity, it's no surprise that a newer trend seen now is mixing metals. Sticking with neutral finishes such as chrome and white or brushed nickel and bronze can offer a space more dimension and personality.

Professional designers often recommend switching old fixtures for contemporary versions with appealing finishes. Copper, brushed gold, stainless steel, and matte aluminum can instantly upgrade the kitchen's faucet, range hood, drawer pulls, cabinet handles, and other metal odds and ends.
Those who prefer a more ornate aesthetic can take out the cabinets completely and replace them with open shelving that serves as a decorative element in and of itself.

Install an Island
Perhaps the most family-friendly improvement that can be made in the kitchen is the addition of an island. An island serves two purposes by providing another surface for preparing food and extra seating to accommodate people who can't fit at the table. Cabinets can also be added to an island for additional storage space.
Play With Height
When renovating their kitchens, families may want to have a few countertops that are accessible to children who are old enough to make simple snacks for themselves and their younger siblings. Once the children outgrow the lowered spaces, they can be used as makeshift tables or coffee bars.
The kitchen is one of the most hazardous areas of the home. It's filled with sharp objects, large appliances, and hot surfaces. Safety should always be the first consideration for kitchen installations for families with numerous children. Choosing countertops with rounded corners can help prevent painful bumps and bruises. It's also helpful to install safety locks on cabinets and drawers that children can reach. Slow-close hinges add another level of protection to prevent tiny fingers from getting hurt by cabinet doors. As most parents know, if kids can find it, they will get into it. So it's important to make the kitchen as safe as possible for the youngest members of the family.

Consider Open Shelves
Get CreativeThere are plenty of attractive shelving solutions for those dealing with clutter, including store-bought items. That doesn’t mean ugly plastic drawers; a ladder shelf, for example, is a functional yet stylish place to store towels, toiletries, and tasteful accessories in attractive baskets and containers. Store-bought drawer organizers and revolving trays can help with storage and organization out-of-sight, too. It’s easy to find chic, practical ways to avoid cluttered shelves and cabinets by thinking outside the box.
Take Advantage of Recessed SpacesRecessed spaces don’t have to be wasted – they make the perfect place for built-in shelving units! Shelves can easily be installed in any small nook and cranny, which may be obvious or hidden behind drywall. Alternatively, built-ins can be created during a bathroom installation by adjusting the size of the shower. A remodeling company can help homeowners find shelving solutions based on their existing bathroom design.

Install an Island
An Appliance GarageFrom blenders and magic bullets to bread makers and pressure cookers, it's great to experiment with all the fun kitchen toys out there. Chances are, however, that they won't all be in use at the same time. A good design solution can be having one large cabinet or drawer somewhere out of the way, like above the refrigerator, that houses all these appliances. They can be pulled out and used as needed and put back in their mini-garage afterward. This helps keep the design of the kitchen clean and simple.
In-Drawer OutletsOne thing that many companies offering kitchen design services have started popularizing is the use of outlets inside pull-out drawers or cabinets. This allows things to be plugged in and in use without taking up space on the countertop. Having an outlet inside a drawer is especially useful for charging devices like cellphones, iPads, etc., without leaving them lying out. Four Points Remodeling provides kitchen design services that can deliver the kitchen of your dreams. Not only do we design kitchens, but we also install them, so you can be sure that nothing is lost in translation. Check out our portfolio of recent kitchen projects or read testimonials from happy customers to get an idea of what we can do for you.
