Last week, we gave you a list of Realtor® recommendations when remodeling your home. One of the items on that list was bathroom upgrades/renovation. If you’re considering doing any bathroom remodeling, you’ve come to the right place! Take a look at our guide to bathroom remodeling!
First of all, determine your goal for a bathroom remodel. What would you like the layout to be? What features would you like it to have? Look online or check out our Pinterest boards for some ideas of what you’d like your bathroom to ultimately look like! Have a clear idea of what you want.
Will your bathroom remodel involve knocking down walls or tearing out fixtures? You may consider involving a designer who can help guide you through the process and make sure you’re making the right decisions. Typically, professionals are better at seeing the “bigger picture.” This can save you time, money, and effort down the road.
One thing that will that will save you a lot of time and headache later on is deciding where you want to place your bathroom accessories. Think about towel racks, the sink, toilet paper holder. Mirror placement and height should be planned out ahead of time.
Hint: If you’re not sure where you want everything, use painter’s tape on the wall and adjust accordingly.
Choose a vanity that fits the needs of you and your family. A pedestal sink may be sleek in design, but would not be the best fit for someone looking to store a lot of items into a bathroom.
Don’t forget the practical aspect of your bathroom dreams! If you are putting in a soaking tup or multi-head shower, you may need a bigger water heater. You may consider your tankless options, as they can give you cost savings and a never ending supply of hot water.
Who says you have to go with tile? These days, your flooring options are endless! Decide what look best suits you, but don’t get caught up in look alone. Weigh the pros and cons of each flooring option and consider things like how slippery it might be, as well as how hard it is to clean.
