When you walk into your bathroom, is it a room where you can retreat or is it a room where you just want to get in, and get out? If the latter is the case, maybe it’s time to consider a renovation. Here are a few tips that may help you with the process.
Toilet: When selecting a toilet, it is important not to go by looks alone. Water conservation and flushing power are very important features to consider. High efficiency toilets use less water and come in a variety of styles. When selecting a color keep in mind that colors become very dated in a few years.
Tub/Shower: If your present bathroom has a tub/shower combination, there are a couple of options to consider: 1.) A combination tub/shower unit can be taken out, tile installed on the surrounding walls with built-in shower heads and a new tub installed. 2.) If a soaking tub is not important to you then removing this combination and making a large walk in tile shower might be just the right option for you. Keep in mind when selling a home at least one bathroom in the home should be equipped with a tub for resale purposes.
Sink: When choosing your sink you are limited only by your personal taste, budget and the amount of space available. Vanities with drop in sinks give you added storage space where as a pedestal sink takes less space but adds elegance to a small room. Vessel sinks on top of your vanity will also give you an upgraded, elegant look.
Accessories: Bathroom accessories, such as towel bars, bath fans and grab bars come in all price ranges, designs and colors. Discuss your budget with your remodeler before selecting these items so he can help with placement, function and design.
Mirrors: Most mirrors are for the purpose of preparing makeup or styling hair, but it is also important to think of mirrors as a design element which expands visually and adds light to the room. You may want to add a second full length mirror for checking clothing.
Lighting: You need brilliant lighting in order to visually prepare yourself for the day. Consider lighting around the bathroom mirror and recess can lights around the perimeter of the bathroom for elegant lighting that is functional and dramatic.
Flooring: When selecting your flooring consider a neutral color so you can add accessories with color. The same is true with wall paints or wallpaper. The accessories can easily be changed at anytime to create a fresh new look.
