Every home has at least one bathroom, and it gets used every day for multiple purposes. After seeing the bathroom for so long, most people usually don’t think much about it. Rather than being something that is simply there, the bathroom can be made into something more livelier.
Any bathroom can be improved significantly with these remodeling tips.
Before diving into any construction project, be aware of how much it will cost to complete the project. Keeping expectations in check will help in determining how much money will be invested into the project. The price will change depending on how big the bathroom is, whether the renovation will be a do it yourself type of project or one that will be done with the help of a professional remodeling contractor, and the quality of the materials that will be used in the project.
For any bathroom, the shower or tub will be the largest thing in the bathroom, and a lot of attention should be given to it. Even if the remodeling job is done on a small budget, treating the tub or shower as the star will go a long way. A simple replacement of the shower head or faucet can be the start of a new look and doesn’t cost a lot to accomplish. A replacement or installation of a shower door is a little more costly option for remodeling, and a full replacement of the tub or shower itself is the most expensive.
Avoid letting the toilet be the first thing that people will see when they look into a bathroom. The toilet isn’t really the best looking thing inside of a bathroom, and bathroom doors are often left open, meaning that people will often see them. It may not be feasible to move an entire toilet to a new location in the bathroom, so it may be possible to direct attention to another focal point or to put a fixture in front of the toilet to hide it, if there is enough space.
Ventilation is something that homeowners usually forget about when remodeling the bathroom. A bathroom must be properly ventilated to keep mildew and mold from growing over time, especially when lots of steam builds up in the bathroom from showers. The growth of these could ruin the entire bathroom, resulting in the need for more expensive remodeling in the future. The installation of a fan can do a lot for ventilation in a bathroom. A fan installed in the ceiling can redirect air from the bathroom to the outside.
If the remodeling plan includes updating the flooring of the bathroom, the new flooring will need to be something that is durable and can withstand the test of time. Tiles that are made of ceramic, stone, and porcelain are resistant to water, and they can look quite beautiful, making them great for the bathroom. Around the baseboards, tiles can also be added as a great finishing touch that will add a bit of class to the bathroom.
The bathroom is worth the time and money that it will take to make it better. These bathroom remodeling tips can do a lot in changing how the bathroom looks.
