- Tying It All Together
- Renovations should be completed so that the bathroom ties into itself and the rest of the living space. Hardware, finishes, colors and lighting that complement one another help prevent a disjointed, pedestrian appearance. The bathroom should mirror the rest of a home by matching the period or separate itself completely as if designed as a retreat, like a spa. Upkeep should be kept in mind, focusing on arrangements easy for the owner to maintain.
- Because bathrooms are among the most heavily trafficked rooms in a home, updates here can quickly improve the overall impression of your house. If you are considering a bathroom renovation in your home, these tips will help to ensure that the finished project is attractive, environmentally conscious, within budget and something that will last for years.
- Choosing the faucets, sink hardware, showerheads and knobs are all extremely important for a good bathroom renovation. In some cases, little more than an update of the fixtures and color in a bathroom can give the space a new life. Matching the finish and color of the metals used in both the shower and sinks helps tie the bathroom design together and encourage flow in the renovation.
- Tub or Shower
- Depending on the space for a renovation, you may be choosing to add a shower to an existing tub or keep the two units separate. For any plan where tub and shower arrangements are to be moved, consideration must be made to ensure the housing’s plumbing lines can support changes while sticking to budget.
- Tile, granite, marble, solid surfaces, laminates and hardwoods are all used in various combinations throughout a bathroom. The selection of the surface material for your floor, counter space and tub or shower will have a big impact on the finished product. Select many samples and compare them side by side. Your decision should be based on a combination of budget, consistency with the rest of your home, and personal preference.
- Are towel racks and tissue holders located conveniently? Is there enough storage space for everyone who uses the bathroom? Do vanity doors or drawers interfere with opening and closing the bathroom door? Consider adding pull-out drawers to an existing or replacement vanity. Some additional storage options include a small closet or a floor to ceiling corner cabinet.
- A leading reason many people remodel their bathroom is for accessibility. Whether it applies to you now or not, it is worthwhile to consider how those with limited mobility – the elderly, disabled or injured – would be impacted by the design of your bathroom. From a resale standpoint, designing with accessibility in mind provides a distinct advantage to a large demographic of home buyers. This doesn’t mean you have to add safety handles throughout, just plan some small space for them. Consider the height of wall switches, the threshold height of a shower, or if you are installing a new toilet, consider a taller model. They are more comfortable anyway.
