10 Things to Consider When Remodeling Your Bathroom
The bathroom is an area of the house that should be comfortable, but doesn’t need to be flashy or fancy, unless that is what you want. There are many new trends in bathroom design that can really give your house an upgraded look and feel. Bathrooms are one of the more expensive rooms to renovate. All of the options – fixtures, shower/tub options, mirrors, tile, counters, etc., make for a lot of variance in pricing and style. They are also surprisingly important in the selling of a house. When someone is looking to buy a house, they do not want to have to fix up or upgrade areas like the bathroom – it should already be attractive and functional. In this blog we are going to go over some things to consider when remodeling this small but important part of your home.
As with other areas of your home, if you are going to remodel, think about what will work best to suit your needs, keeping in mind the potential for resale. For example, double sinks are very popular in modern bathrooms, as well as walk-in showers, extra large tubs and storage cabinets. These will give your home an advantage over another when you are ready to sell.
Space is the biggest challenge when planning your bathroom redesign. There are fantastic ideas and fixtures for any size space, but clearly the larger rooms offer more options for creative form and function. The size of the space is not the only factor when preparing to upgrade your bathroom. Consider the following questions:
1. How many people will be using this bathroom?
2. Do you prefer to shower or take a bath?
3. Do you need space for storage?
4. Is there space to have two sinks and is that useful for your family?
5. How is the existing plumbing?
6. Are there structural changes required?
7. What is your color scheme and tile preference?
8. What is your budget?
9. Are you looking to and able to enlarge the space?
10. What is the style of your home – contemporary, classic, etc. This should influence the style of your bathroom to maintain consistency in the space.
