Things You Should Not Overlook While Remodeling Your Bathroom

by Elias Deukmajian | Bathroom Remodel

Most of us have been to a restaurant or establishment where a couple people will make glowing remarks about the bathroom. This often piques your curiosity because there’s something about a beautiful bathroom that makes a person feel pampered. Viewing restaurant and hotel conference bathrooms will often give you ideas for your own, which may prompt you to take on a bathroom remodeling project.

When it comes to changing up your bathroom or guest bathroom, it’s often hard to know where to begin. Trying to balance everything at once can be difficult and frustrating, so we put together some essential tips and tricks you shouldn’t miss when approaching a remodeling project.

Figuring Out Your Budget

First and foremost, when investing in a remodel for your bathroom, you’re not just investing in your home, you’re investing in your comfort as well. It’s important to keep in mind that your bathroom remodel can cost as much or as little as you choose.

Creating a budget early on allows you to keep track of essentials without funds spiraling out of control. With a formulated plan, you can see if you have enough left for a few luxuries, such as heated floors or wall mounts.

Another thing to keep in mind when budgeting is why you’re remodeling your bathroom. Are you planning on selling your house or is this a permanent home for you? Bathroom remodels can get expensive quickly, so it’s important to consider your options and reasons for remodeling. If you don’t see yourself living there for long, perhaps it is best to scale back. However, creating a spectacular bathroom for an upcoming sale of a home can also raise the value of your home.

Choosing the Type of Bathroom

It’s essential to know your goals for your bathroom style. Are you going with a standard bathroom, a half bath, or even a wet bath?

Standard bathrooms always have a toilet, sink, and a shower or bath. If your bathroom is more on the spacious side, it’s always nice to have both a shower and a tub. Nothing beats a classic clawfoot bathtub.

Half baths are great if you often have guests. These types of bathrooms always contain a toilet and a sink. They’re good for letting your guests freshen up when needed.

Last, there are wet baths. These bathrooms are usually in a small space where the entire floor could possibly be part of the shower. The toilet, walls, and cabinets are waterproof.

Each style has benefits and drawbacks so you should take your time and consider which suits your needs best.

Bathroom Layout

Once you figure out your bathroom type, you can then work on the layout. It’s imperative that you figure this out before choosing an aesthetic for your bathroom. Moving sinks, toilets, and showers around can quickly get costly, so if the plumbing is already installed in your home, we recommend leaving it be.

It’s also important to keep in mind where ventilation is located and if there are any windows in the space you plan on remodeling. Planting a shower right next to a window or blocking ventilation would be poor design and would certainly cause issues down the road.

Choosing Your Materials and Installation

Now that you’ve figured out your budget and chosen a bathroom type and layout, it’s time for the fun part: choosing your aesthetic.

Another thing to consider when picking out materials is that bathrooms go through a considerable amount of wear and tear, from changes in temperature, humidity, and of course water exposure. So it’s essential to choose durable and good quality materials that are easy to clean and can withstand chemicals. It’s also important that the aesthetic is appealing to the eye.

Once you’ve chosen your materials, it’s time for installation. For most folks, this is the scariest part, but it doesn’t have to be a chore.
