A bathroom remodel doesn’t just improve the appearance and function of the whole space but also increases the value of your home. In planning for this project, several things must be considered, from the overall design idea down to the specific components you want inside. Knowing what you want for this part of your home is crucial to the remodel’s success.
Today, Impact Home Solutions, your local bathtub and shower replacement contractor, shares some quick tips for planning a bathroom remodel.
1. Recognize the type of bathroom you want to remodel.
Being realistic in your bathroom remodel plans is the key to making everything work. One of the main considerations for this part of the process is knowing the type of bathroom you are remodeling. Full bathrooms comprise all the amenities—toilet, vanity, sink and tub or shower. Powder rooms have a little more than a sink and a toilet. If your home has at least two bathrooms, the one you use on a daily basis is the master bathroom. The other may be designated for guests or your small children.
2. Consider who’ll be using the bathroom.
Before you go shop for shower replacement faucets or vanity countertops, be sure you consider the users of the bathroom you are remodeling. For instance, if you are upgrading your bathroom for children, see to it that the fixtures inside can endure decades of use and abuse. If you are living with the elderly or disabled, you should incorporate additional features like grab bars and lower counters. Floors must be waterproof and slip-resistant, as well.
3. Draw inspiration.
Browse through Pinterest or other online sites and home improvement magazines for ideas on what you want your new bathroom design will look like. Also consider how the fixtures are going to be laid out to find out what works and what doesn’t. You can also visit a showroom in your local area to help you make the right choices on fixtures and finishes.
