Bathroom remodeling projects are significant yet worthy investments for every home. After all, not only will you be getting a better bathroom in doing so but you’ll also be able to increase your home’s value. However, it’s not something you should just jump into. In fact, there are a few things you need to properly consider, such as the major do’s and don’ts.
Here, Impact Home Solutions, the experts in installing shower replacement doors, reveals the most important do’s and don’ts of bathroom remodeling.
Do: Consider Storage
During your bathroom remodel, make a point to keep storage in mind. While it may be tempting to cut back on storage for a larger vanity or shower, you may come to regret this decision in the long run when you realize just how many items you have in your bathroom. To properly plan for storage, consider where you’ll keep the essentials, linens and first-aid items during your planning stages.
Don’t: Forget About Ventilation and Lighting
The bathroom is an area in your home that’s rife with moisture, meaning that mold and mildew can grow there if it isn’t properly ventilated. With that in mind, make sure to have your contractor take the necessary steps to ensure the space has the proper ventilation it needs. Additionally, you’ll want plenty of light as well so install a ceiling fixture for general light and add sconces by the vanity if it’s still needed.
Do: Choose the Right Surfaces
The surfaces that you’ll choose shouldn’t just be able to contribute to the bathroom’s overall aesthetic but they should be able to handle the amount of moisture that the bathroom faces on a daily basis as well. According to shower replacement experts, porcelain tile is one of the most popular surface materials that homeowners gravitate to due to their ability to resist staining, bacteria and odors. However, it’s not the only material available so if you’re having a hard time choosing, don’t hesitate to ask professionals like Impact Home Solutions for advice.
Don’t: Move Fixtures Unless Necessary
Unless it’s absolutely necessary, don’t move the fixtures around your bathroom as they can be an extra expense that you don’t really need.
