We’ve already covered the importance of flexible design, which is the concept of designing around what I call anchor items, which are those aspects of the remodel which are most expensive to change later. Specifically the tub and/or shower, and the flooring.

This post discusses effective accessorizing to really enhance your space.
I define accessorizing as different from decorating. Rugs, towels, flowers, shower curtain, window coverings, etc are decorating.
What defines accessorizing is that it’s fairly easy to change, but it’s more than “just” removing a few items and replacing them.
Changing the accessory items gives you a whole new bathroom, but without the cost of a full remodel.
It is fairly inexpensive (compared the cost of the full remodel) to change any and all of the following:
- The toilet
- The vanity, counter, sink, and faucet.
- The color of the walls.
- The towel bars.
- The lighting fixtures.
Provided that you have properly built your entire design around your anchor items, you can create an entirely new look and feel for your bathroom by changing some or all of the accessory items.
Look at the image in this post, and notice how the burgundy accent areas of the bathroom (which include the door and the bathmat) give the entire room a certain feel and image how the room would be different if that accent color was yellow.
I choose that example as accent color is one of the easiest and cheapest things to change, but that concept applies to any and all of the accessory items listed above.
