If you think renovating bathrooms is an easy task simply because they are the smallest rooms in the house, think again. Bathroom renovation is hard-work because there are so many special appliances and fixtures that the room requires. As a result, you will need a lot of plumbers, electricians, and tradesmen working on redoing your bathroom.
Moreover, the bathroom is a space in the house that should be relaxing and private. Your time in the bathroom may be the only time during the day that you get to spend alone in peace. So, not only should it be functional, it should be aesthetically pleasing as well. Here are some important considerations if you are renovating your bathroom:
• Granite and marble are great choices for your bathroom countertops/vanities
Your vanity is perhaps the most easily noticeable part of your bathroom, your centerpiece. It’s also where you get ready in the morning, so it should be both functional and beautiful. Granite and marble are often the most common choices for bathroom countertops. They are durable and highly resistant to water and stains, not to mention their unique looks.
• Keep the same layout if you want to reduce expenses
Renovating a bathroom can be an expensive affair if you go all out and change the entire layout apart from installing new appliances and fixtures. So, if you want to reduce your expenses, keep the same layout. This means that you need to keep plumbing fixtures such as sinks, toilets, and others in the same place.
• Pay attention to your fixtures
Bathroom fixtures may be small, because of which you may think they don’t make much difference to your bathroom. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. Fixtures, whether they are sinks, tubs, faucets, or robe hooks can make a huge difference in the overall look of your bathroom. Make sure they match the rest of your bathroom design.
• Have a walk-in shower area (and a separate tub area)
If you have space, having a walk-in shower area can make your bathroom look and feel extremely luxurious and elegant. Besides, this will give you a relaxing, private space for when you shower. And if you have a tub, or plan to install a tub, it’s best to have your shower and tub separate for that luxurious look. Again, this is only if you have enough space in your bathroom.
