You may have seen wonderful bathroom designs when you visit a restaurant or a hotel. There is something special about having a modern design bathroom.
If you are looking forward to getting your bathroom renovated, you may get overwhelmed by the designs you see on Pinterest boards. Besides, you can find some amazing ideas from magazines and websites.
To make the process easy, here are some bathroom renovation tips you need to look at.
Create a Budget
When you decide to renovate your property, you are deciding on investing to increase the value of your home. But bathroom renovation can be quite costly if you don’t have a certain budget set for it.
You need to start by setting a realistic budget and try your best to stick to it. It would be best to choose a contractor who offers fixed prices. To create your budget, you need to consider which parts of the bathrooms need to change and if you want to change the location of the plumbed-in items.
Select Your Type of Bathroom
You might have to change the entire bathroom for more space and functionality. Have an interior designer look at the options that are possible for your bathroom. For example, a cramped bathroom can be transformed into a luxurious master suite by borrowing some extra space from a walk-in closet.
You can choose a standard bathroom, a half bathroom, or a wet bath. A standard bathroom contains a sink, toilet, and shower. You can make it luxurious by adding skylights, a soaking tub, and separate shower screens. If you have two bathrooms, you can turn one into a half bath so that guests can use it without invading your personal bathroom space.
Choose the Bathroom Layout
Now that you know which type of bathroom you would like, it’s time to consider the layout. If you like the existing layout, you can go on living with it. Rearranging plumbing fixtures can quickly drive up the cost.
The existing layout may not work for some people because it’s poorly designed. Maybe it was poorly designed and that’s why you want to change it. Consider changing the layout for more space and storage cabinets.
Consider Your Lighting Options
When getting your bathroom renovated, consider the lighting. If your bathroom has poor lighting, it can destroy the utility of the space. To get more natural light in, you can incorporate plenty of windows. Good lighting around the mirror will help you give a true representation of your skin color and tone.
For artificial lighting, you can choose LEDs to provide ambient light. You can even buy modern vanities with built-in lighting.
Get Proper Ventilation
Bathrooms are prone to dampness, especially in humid areas. You need to get adequate ventilation in your bathroom especially if it has a shower or a tub. Bathrooms need excellent ventilation to keep the occupants in good health and prevent mold from growing.
Get exhaust fans installed or use windows vents for airflow in the bathroom. Your contractor can help you decide where to get exhaust fans installed for the most effective airflow.
