Best Ways to Save Water in the Bathroom
Posted on Thursday, May 29, 2014
Water conservation makes sense both economically and environmentally. DécorPlanet is pleased to offer these suggestions for saving water that can decrease bills and increase your environmental stewardship without requiring you sacrifice comfort and style.

Water Saving Tips
Let’s be honest, the easiest way to save water is to use it wisely. This means taking simple steps like turning it off when you’re completing tasks such as brushing your teeth or shaving. You can fill the basin of your sink to have water easily accessible, but this too can require a significant amount of water. Try turning the faucet on as needed to rinse toothbrushes or razors, and turning it off as soon as the task is completed.

Get creative. For example, if you have house plants, consider placing a bucket in the shower while water heats up. This enables you to use water that would otherwise have gone, literally, down the drain, for something much more practical.

Fix leaky faucets. Millions of gallons of water are wasted every year through leaky bathtub and sink faucets. If you have a faucet that is leaking, fix it – or better yet, install low-flow fixtures. Toilets, faucets, and showerheads can be purchased with low-flow options, and DécorPlanet has an impressive selection of eco-friendly bathroom fixtures, allowing you to pick those with the designs and features most conducive to your lifestyle.

If you have any questions about our eco-friendly toilets, bathroom fixtures and furniture, please contact our customer service department online or by calling 800-504-9974 today.

The Five Best Blogs to Follow about Bathroom Décor
Posted on Tuesday, May 20, 2014


There are literally thousands of home décor blogs, which can make finding those perfect for your project seem difficult. Searching the internet, even with precise terms, often provides hundreds of options without much substance – a reality that can be very frustrating. This makes knowing where to look for concise and professional ideas very important.

At DécorPlanet, we strive to provide information that is useful for all of our customers. With that in mind, we are pleased to offer suggestions for online sources that can easily spark ideas and help you create a plan for your dream space.


Sources of Inspiration

 

Online sites for magazines such as House Beautiful, Better Homes & Gardens, and Architectural Digest can provide significant inspiration. If there is an aesthetic that is most attractive to you, visit sites of magazines such as Country Living (rustic) or Elle Décor (modern) for theme-specific ideas. These and similar home décor magazines update blog and article content on their websites and Facebook pages frequently, allowing them to be a source of continuous encouragement.
Personal blogs can also provide inspiration and may give insight into aspects of bathroom redecorating that are overlooked in glossier publications. When you come across the blog of an individual that speaks to you, be sure to subscribe and keep up with their postings.

Sprucing up Bathroom Shelves
Posted on Thursday, May 15, 2014
Bathroom shelves can provide much needed storage and offer added convenience. They can also pull a room together and help accentuate your sense of style. DécorPlanet is pleased to offer these tips that can help make your bathroom shelving stylish as well as functional.

First and foremost, keep it simple. Too much clutter – decorative or otherwise – will produce a very unappealing look. If you have more stuff than space to hold it, use baskets to create a tidy appearance. Baskets produce a clean, uncluttered aesthetic while still providing substantial storage space.



Clutter can also come by way of too much color. To ensure the most pleasing appearance, pick a color palate and stick with it. Choose colors in the same family for both shelving and the walls shelves are placed on. And if you are adding decorations, be sure they work with the color theme.

When adding decorations to shelves, think visual triangles. This decorating method provides balance between shelves by following a triangular pattern. For example, if you have a blue vase on the top shelf, something similarly colored and textured will ideally complement it when placed at an angle on the shelf below. Visual triangles are a quick and easy design strategy that can be used to create optimal balance while helping maintain function.



Creating visual triangles doesn’t mean choosing objects that are all the same size or shape. In fact, design is often best enhanced by combining items of different heights, textures, and colors. Remember to stick within a specific color theme and balance items with visual triangulation, but within those confines you can stack, lean, layer, and group articles to produce a look that is both visually appealing and completely your own.

Above all be patient. Choosing the exact combination of design and function to enhance your space my take some thought and effort – but the end results are well worth it.

Things to Consider for Your Bathroom Remodel
Posted on Tuesday, May 13, 2014
Remodeling your bathroom gives you the perfect chance to make the space your own. This can be exhilarating, but also very confusing if you’re not certain where to begin. The first thing to remember is that this can be a major undertaking if a complete remodel is desired. The next thing to remember is that’s okay, so long as you make a plan and move forward with intention.



Choosing Fixtures
You’ll need to choose fixtures when updating your bathroom. This means picking a new sink, cabinetry, vanity, toilet, and tub/shower. To choose these things consider:
  •    The space you’re working with
  •    The theme you’re creating
  •    The features you desire

Maintaining function while optimizing style is entirely doable, but will require some planning to pull off effectively.

Small Details
Because many fixtures are part of larger sets it is relatively simple to select designs that are complementary. Details however, such as floor and wall tiles, bathtub surrounds, and even lighting can prove a bit trickier.



Take time to select tiles and surrounds that match the feel you are trying to create while also working with the colors of your fixtures. This does not mean that dark vanities require dark tiles. In fact, dark fixtures are often best complemented with lighter accent colors. Just make sure to stick within a particular color scheme to maintain a balanced and appealing look.


Remodeling a bathroom adds character and may even increase the value of your home. Taking time to plan it out and do it right can help ensure results that enhance your home and provide years of satisfaction.

Five Easy Ways to Update Your Bathroom Décor
Posted on Thursday, May 8, 2014
Updating a bathroom doesn’t mean having to start from scratch. There are always attractive additions that can be made and often a space can be enlivened by changing only one or two things. DécorPlanet is happy to provide these five simple suggestions that can update the look and feel of your bathroom in mere hours.


  1.          Replace or add accent tiles to the walls. Tiling an entire wall or just adding accents is a cost effective way to produce a sleek appearance. This type of project can often be completed in a single weekend.
  2.          Add a stylish medicine or linen cabinet. Adding cabinetry or a mirror is much simpler than working with fixtures that require plumbing or electrical work. But these little additions can greatly enhance both the style and convenience to your space.
  3.          Change wall décor. Add wallpaper, repaint, or place sconces on walls to give new life to your bathroom. Changing ceiling lighting and other fixtures can help walls pop as well.
  4.          Change fabrics. Changing shower curtains and adding fabric covers to furniture are both inexpensive and easy ways to update your bathroom décor. If your bathroom furniture is not upholstered, try placing stylish towels on a chair instead of in a cabinet to provide additional color and a spa-like feel.
  5.          Theme it out. If your bathroom is stylistically anarchistic, try choosing one theme and sticking to it. You can create any feeling you want, from classic to exotic and everything in between with just a little planning and a small amount of time.


As a weekend project or spaced out over a few weekday nights, these simple bathroom updates can provide new life in next to no time at all. Better yet, requiring minimal effort and cost, these updates are often all it takes to make your washroom one of the most inviting and exciting spaces in your home.

Design Tips for a Crisp and Clean Look
Posted on Tuesday, May 6, 2014


Crisp and clean bathroom design is ideal for many of today’s more modern homes. However, what works best in one home is bound to be wrong for another. For this reason, the very first step in designing the look that’s right for your home is to design it around the features already in place.

Clean design begins by working with your architecture. If your bathroom already has unique and interesting architectural features, adding unusual fixtures can produce an unnecessarily complex look. However, if your bathroom design is extremely simple, unique fixtures and features can, when placed sparingly, produce just the right amount of flair. What’s right for your space is entirely dependent on what natural features you’re working with.

Color used sparingly can produce a clean look while still providing a bit of elegance. For example, a red tiled shower enclosure can pop in an otherwise Spartan area. Though you needn’t go so bright to create a dash of excitement. A single, brightly colored shelf or even an exotic plant can stimulate without agitating.


Clean, minimalist design doesn’t mean boring. In fact, even simple design can be unexpected and fresh. Choosing uniquely shaped sinks and cabinetry, updating faucets, selecting interesting bathtub designs, even adding towels or paintings with peculiar motifs can provide a bit of “wow” while still working within a clean and streamlined aesthetic.

When remodeling your bathroom is not preferable, learning to work within the limitations of your current space can be a great alternative. DécorPlanet is happy to provide these three tips that can help produce a refreshingly new look without requiring much time or money.

Tip #1 – Choose the Right Finish for Fixtures. Bathrooms with every little natural light do well with fixtures that have reflective surfaces. However, high reflection may be too much for spaces that receive ample sunlight. Choose faucets and decorations that work with the light available in your space. Changing light fixtures can also help produce more light without requiring an entire remodel.

Tip #2 – Think Escape. Adding things such as vases with flowers can produce a spa-like environment and help provide both sophistication and relaxation. So too can placing soft and attractive towels in visible areas such as on chairs or open shelves. Adding aromatherapy candles, incense, or other delicately scented items can also help produce an inviting escape.

Tip #3 – Accessorize intentionally. From soap dispensers to hand towels, little changes often make the most profound differences. Choose accessories that match the color and theme of your bathroom and consider changing out towel racks or adding shelving. Intentionally choosing accessories that match can produce big results while requiring very little change.


Your bathroom should enhance the look and feel of your home. Planning minor upgrades and making simple additions is often all it takes to create a space that is comfortable, comforting, and uniquely yours. And with the wide selection of bathroom fixtures and accessories at DécorPlanet.com, we make it easy to renew your space without breaking the bank.
