Tips on Renovating Your Bathroom

by Tom Brown on Apr 11, 2013

While bathrooms are often one of the smallest rooms in your house, it is one of the most used and valued space in the house. Besides serving the practical day to day routines, a bathroom for many is often a sanctuary where they can respite, if only for a few moments. Remodeling a bathroom can be a daunting task and most people do not know where to start from. But not anymore. Here are some tips that will help you:

  • Gather ideas from a variety of sources. Looking at works that others have done can be a great inspiration for remodeling your own bathroom. Search magazines and the Internet for inspiring ideas.

  • Don't rush the process. Poor planning is one of the main reasons for cost overruns and costly repairs afterwards. Depending on the size and scope of your bathroom space, spend several weeks to a month on the planning procedure.

  • Set a budget for the project. Be realistic about how much you can spend and afford for the project. Set aside at 10- 15% cost for unexpected expenses that are sure to come. Hidden water damage is a common problem of bathrooms you might have to face. It's better to be prepared.

  • To create a custom floor plan, hire the services of a bathroom designer who can create great designs in the space you have, keeping in mind your budget and family's needs. The master bath has undergone massive change in the recent years. Giant tubs that were once wildly popular have now fallen out of trend. Instead people are opting for overhead shower-heads, hand held shower heads, rain bars, steam showers, wall- mounted shower-heads, shower tiles and body sprays. Choosing custom shower with a smaller bathtub also proves to be more efficient for your layout. A big tub takes up a lot of space.

  • When it comes to extras, turn towards the luxurious. Hang a luxurious chandelier over a soaking bath, install a pass- through fire place for warmth and ambiance, add built- in warming drawers for towels. You may also built your adjacent massage tables and dressing room in the space. Many people also choose to install sound systems and televisions in their master bathrooms.

  • Do not design a bathroom that will be difficult to clean. No one likes to clean a bathroom. So do not complicate things that will make cleaning difficult. Avoid vanities with space under the cabinets which can be a great place for dust accumulation. Do not place toilets, vanities and other items too close to each other that will make cleaning between them difficult. On the same line, use larger wall tiles to eliminate grout lines.

  • Visit an architectural firm and consult architectures for getting a 3D rendering of your project. 3D animation will enable you to see how your bathroom project will look like after project completion. You can embark on modifications, if needed, and in this way spare costly repairs later. Visit here to know more.
