A bathroom remodel is one of the most high-demand renovations for a house, and for good reason. We spend a lot of our time in our bathrooms, and as a result, we want to make sure they accommodate our wants and needs. However, as much as we may dream about the perfect bathroom, getting that perfect bathroom requires a lot of thought and effort. From the plumbing to storage, here are some things you need to consider when remodeling your bathroom.
Many people think that a bathroom remodel is just an aesthetic renovation, and in some cases that’s true. Nevertheless, in many cases, a bathroom remodel also involves fixing up the pipes and rerouting the water supply lines. You’ll want to have your contractor take a look at all of this, as a bathroom remodel is the perfect opportunity to get any plumbing problems in your house fixed.
When designing your new bathroom, you’ll want to make sure that everything in there is accessible to everyone in your household. For instance, if you or someone in your family is shorter, then make sure that any storage options or showerheads are low enough for them to reach. Faucets and grab bars should also be easy to grip, and each part of your bathroom should be easily accessible to any family members with disabilities.
Unless you’re remodeling a half bath, one light fixture won’t be enough. Depending on the size of your bathroom, you’ll want at least two light fixtures: one for above the mirror, another for above the shower. You should also consider how you use your mirror. For example, do you use it to put on makeup or to shave? If so, then make sure you have the proper lighting to accommodate.
Whether you need a place to store your makeup or an extra storage closet for your towels and toiletries, having the proper storage will make your life much easier. Even if you don’t have enough money in your budget for moving your walls, you can still find ways to maximize your storage with certain cabinetry and shelving options.
