5 Steps to a Better Bathroom

  1. Function should be the highest priority in the bathroom especially during a remodel. The bathroom is where you can prepare yourself for work or help you relax after a long and stressful day. Consider all of the functions when choosing your sink, tub, shower, toilet and even the accessories. With some clever planning, you can make your bathroom even more functional; you should even consider installing a laundry chute to make other aspects of your home life easier.
  2. Plumbing will dictate most of the placement when doing a bathroom remodel. Yet you also need to think about the distance traveled. Are the soap dishes within arm’s reach? How deep/wide/tall should the vanity be to best accommodate everyone in your family? If you map your space effectively, you can easily add a few extra accessories!
  3. Aside from functionality, how do you want to feel when you are in your bathroom? Do you want a formal space or more of a casual area? While it’s OK to be bold you should consider your home, and personal, style when decorating your new space. Neutral colors are recommended for a casual space, while blacks and whites will make it more formal.
  4. As with all remodels, you will have a large variety of materials to choose from. It’s best to research all of the products and know the qualities and drawbacks of each. Will you want a shiny floor (which may be slippery) or tile floors? Always make sure to research everything; choose based on your budget and the style you want in your space.
  5. While researching the various products for your remodel, you should also look for fixtures that will enhance your space. Since there are a large variety of fixtures on the market, you should choose based on the style you chose earlier. Elaborate fixtures won’t mesh well with a beach-inspired bathroom.
