Things to Consider When Remodeling Your Bathroom
If you have a bathroom remodeling project in your future, you want to make sure that you meet as many design objectives as possible during the renovation. But before getting started, here are a few things to take into consideration before getting started.
Lighting - A bright and well-lit bathroom makes this room of the house safer for everyone. Selecting fixtures and lighting that is functional and stylish helps add distinction and character to your bathroom. Recessed lighting is soft and provides a gentle glow to the areas wherever installed. Vanity lighting supplies overhead light to your sink area, so you can see yourself clearly when getting ready for your day. Ceiling lights help to keep the entire bathroom evenly illuminated.
Storage Space - Having enough storage space in your bathroom helps to ensure you can quickly and easily access towels, washcloths, personal care items, and cleaning products when you need them. If space allows, adding a modest size linen closet helps to ensure you never forget to bring your bath towel! Extra drawers and under sink storage space are ideal for tucking away smaller items such as hair styling tools, personal care items, and other grooming tools when not in use.
Sinks And Vanities - Selecting the perfect sink and vanity for your bathroom helps to ensure the finished project looks beautiful. Double sink vanities are ideal for master and larger bathrooms, where more than one person might be getting ready at the same time. If working in a smaller area, choosing a freestanding vanity with a single sink helps conserve space.
Combination Tubs And Showers - For many people, a combination shower and bathtub is a logical choice. It offers the freedom to shower in a hurry, and a way to soak on days when you're feeling sore or need to relax quietly. There is a wide range of styles available in which to choose, ranging from basic wall-tub kits to luxury steam shower and jetted tub combos.
Flooring - Due to the naturally damp nature of the bathroom, choosing a water-resistant flooring option helps to protect your home from water damage. Ideal flooring choices include porcelain or ceramic tiles, natural stone tile, cork, engineered hardwood, and luxury vinyl. Always avoid using carpeting and natural wood for bathroom flooring, as both of these porous materials absorb water, which can contribute to bacteria, mold, mildew, and rot.
