Remodeling a bathroom can give your home a breath of fresh air. Before
any work is started you should have a plan drawn out to allow for a smooth
renovation. Take into account the amount of space, functionality of the
final product, and the desired look you would like to see. To help you
with your renovation, take into account some of these
Multiple Users – Always take the time to think about how many people will be using
this bathroom. If it will be used by multiple people then consider installing
more cabinets, drawers, and even sinks. Make sure the space is practical
before worrying about how it looks.
Storage – Can you store all of the towels, toilet paper, and other toiletries
in a hallway closet, or will it be stored in the bathroom? If they will
be stored in the bathroom then think about adding in an additional closet,
rack, or cabinet.
Using Space Wisely – Some bathrooms have limited space so it can be hard to fit everything
in one room. By overlapping some spaces you can make everything fit easier.
The floor in front of the sink or shower can also be the same floor that
is in front of the toilet.
Make It Bigger – You can make your bathroom appear bigger without actually doing
so. Instead of installing a normal shower door, consider getting a doorless
shower so the room will feel less cramped. Pedestal sinks are also a great
space saver if you feel that a cabinet sink will be too bulky
Let It Be – Adding a little Feng Shui to the bathroom by changing the layout
can be tempting. However, moving the toilet and shower around can prove
to be costly. Moving these fixtures and their plumbing from their current
locations can double the cost of the entire renovation.
Bathroom renovations can invigorate your home and even increase the value
of it. During a remodeling project be sure to update your plumbing or
make any necessary repairs. Having your bathroom look good is important,
but its functionality is the most important aspect. For all of your plumbing
