Thinking of remodeling your bathroom? Want a fresh feel with contemporary cabinets and fixtures? Or is your bathroom too small and needs a tub or shower added?
It’s amazing how a remodeled bathroom can make a home more comfortable to live in. We never realize how important a pleasant bathroom is until we remodel.
Remodeling a bathroom can increase the property value of a home, enhance safety for children and the elderly with improvements in health standards and electrical fixtures.
Here are some tips for the perfect bathroom remodel that will help you create the bathroom of your dreams.
Replacing bathroom cabinets will give you the instant freshness you want in your bathroom. New cabinet finishes are resistant to water spots and mold & mildew. Have a corner that’s not being used? Add a tall, thin closet similar to a pantry to help with storage for towels and paper goods.
New fixtures like toilets and faucets conserve water and will lower your water bill. So even if you’re purchasing brand new fixtures, the water savings will pay for the fixtures in no time.
Go for elegance or serenity when choosing your bathroom faucets and decor hardware. Yes, they need to be functional, but they should also put a smile on your face when you see them. Faucets and towel bars are the most inexpensive items in the bathroom, so make yourself happy with your choice.
The bathroom floor defines the bathroom space. You’ll want flooring that dries quickly, isn’t slippery and is comfortable to stand on. Installing an under the floor heating system, or radiant heat will keep your bathroom warm on cold mornings and cut your energy bills by not heating the entire house.
The quickest way to give your bathroom a facelift is with paint and color. Bright bathroom colors make the room cheerful and youthful. Subdued color can mimic the ocean and make your bathroom a restful spa experience.
Painting cabinets instead of replacing them can tie all your fixtures together and blend your bathroom decor.
Introduce your personality into your bathroom with thoughtful additions like candles, flower vases, and unique mirrors that will give your bathroom some character. Rugs and towels can brighten up the space and can be changed as the seasons and holidays change.
The very best bathtub fits your space and fits you. At the showroom sit in the tub and make sure it’s comfortable. A hot bath is relaxing at the end of a hard day. However, if the bathtub doesn’t fit you and isn’t comfortable, there isn’t anything relaxing about it.
In a bathroom, floor space is at a minimum. So it may be challenging for the elderly or handicapped to negotiate the small space safely and comfortably.
Think about using wall shelves and cabinets for storage. As well, you could place shelves high on a wall that can hold extra towels and seldom used items.
