Great ideas for Remodeling your bathroom
And you decided that it’s time to renovate your bathroom-great! But where should you start, and what your top priorities should be? Here are a few ideas to bear in mind in order to ensure top quality remodelling work.
Opt for Space
Most bathrooms feel tiny and crowded. Sometimes you’ll need to work with the available space. If you have a small space, concentrate on designs that save space and make the room feel light and airy. Consider allowing enough counter space for two men, even if you have to compromise sinks named “his and hers.” Many people find counter space in shared bathrooms is preferable to a double washbasin. Consider putting a privacy wall up in larger bathrooms to cover the toilet area.
It is necessary to allow proper storage space in your newly-refurbished bathroom. Do not forget to include in your designs a place for towels and toiletries, as well as a first-aid medicine cabinet!
Lighting and Ventilation
The last thing you want is dark spots inside a bathroom. If not already installed, make sure your medicine cabinet and mirror areas are covered by both an overhead light and vanity light. Adequate ventilation and fans along with adequate lighting can help to reduce the growth of mould and mildew.
Choose Proper Materials
In the long run, classic materials and colours are better than passing fads which appear to be dated in just a few years. Porcelain, granite, and quartz remain popular tile, countertop, or sink choices. The favourite colours remain blacks, pastels, and lighter earth tones. And while online shopping has become popular, it is always recommended to pick them up or buy them in person, so you can make sure that the colour and size are exactly what you wanted.
Indulge Yourself a Little
Choose at least one thing for your bathroom you’ve always dreamed of, and add that to the list. There is no better time to do that than while you’re remodelling already. And note-going the extra mile will add to your home’s value!
Choose the Right Professional for the Job
Cutting materials or labour corners will result in an unprofessional look that may disappoint over the long run. Additionally, while DIY projects have become increasingly popular, a professional can find and advise on hidden issues such as leaks or water damage that may be uncovered during the remodelling project.
Upgrade for Water Efficiency
The modern standards are becoming highly water-intensive. Tell your plumber which water-saving tools and fittings you may have installed during your remodelling. In the future, improvements will help save money on water bills, and help contribute to efforts to conserve water.
Don’t Be in a Hurry
Take your time considering what you really want before making the time and money investment to remodel to ensure you get the most satisfaction from it, and don’t overlook something you would have really liked to have had done.
