Everyone living in your home and most of the people who visit will at some point use your bathroom. This is why it’s typically one of the most versatile rooms in your home and why a bathroom remodel is considered one of the most common home renovation projects. There is always something (and often many things) that can be done to improve this much-used resource. Read on for eight ideas to consider as you prepare for your bathroom remodeling project.
Any remodeling project will involve changing and improving the fixtures in that room, but there are two big ideas for improving your bathroom when it comes to the fixtures. First, indulge in a heated floor, and you will save money on heating costs in the long run, and you’ll never have to step out of a warm shower onto a cold floor again. Second, you want to ensure that you have adequate ventilation to inhibit mold growth and keep the bathroom nice.
There are also two major ways to improve your bathroom experience by changing the plumbing. First, switch out the standard 1.5-inch drain pipe for a 2-inch drainpipe. No one will know that you did it, and still, the effect will be noticeable. Second, opt for low-flow on your other fixtures like your toilet and showerhead. They can still offer a great experience, but they will save you money on your water bill.
Changing the aesthetics is probably the biggest reason you’re remodeling. Consider opting for small tile to change the look of the space. Second, choose neutral fixtures and materials and then accent so that you don’t end up with a trend that fades in popularity.
Finally, changing the lighting can change the whole room. First, if you’re able, consider including a window to let in natural light. Many people opt to put this in the shower, which improves that experience but requires frosting or waterproof blinds. Second, include different types of specialty lighting such as lighted mirrors or spots to make the things you do in the bathroom (like putting on makeup) easier.
