Tired of the old fixtures in your bathroom? Want something new? If you are weary of looking at the same old outdated layout and considering a bathroom remodeling, you need to sort out some things before starting the project. Primarily, remodeling a bathroom is not a small or easy project to undertake. So do not jump the gun and start right away looking for the perfect bathtub and tiles that you wanted in your bathroom for so long. Hold your horses, because what a project needs first and foremost is good planning.
So consider the following tips that will guide you through planning and executing your bathroom renovation project.
- Evaluate what you have
Analyze what your bathroom already has, and what changes you want to make. Make a list of things that needs to be changed. Consider the changes that are absolutely necessary (e.g. slippery tiles) and things that you want to change for a better aesthetic view.
- Prepare a Budget
This might sound as an obvious thing, but it is very important to prepare a budget and stick to it as much as possible. While preparing a budget for all the changes you need to make, keep some reserve amount for some unexpected development, like an unforeseen leakage problem, that might occur when remodeling your bathroom.
- Research before you buy
After setting up a budget, now you have to take another caution. You should always make it a point to research before you buy things. If you feel like you need a second opinion to make an informed choice, consult an expert on bathroom renovations.
They are likely to suggest the best products in the market and more importantly they can consider your budget and advise you accordingly. Another benefit of research is that you can always know what your options are and choose the products that offer you the best with the amount you can afford.
- Using the new found space
Now that you have removed all the old features, if you suddenly realize how spacious your bathroom has become, you have to be conscious about how you are going to use that space now. You can save floor space by attaching the storage cabinet into the wall. This will give you a vertical storage space and give your bathroom a spacious feel.
- Choosing the right fixtures
Now that you have a good idea about how much you can spend, making the right and smart decisions about the bathroom wares is the most important task remaining to complete the remodeling project. If you want designs and fixtures that are in trend, check out on the latest bathroom wares and keep yourself updated on the issue. You can again consult an expert. If you are someone who wants fixtures that best represent your style, e.g. elegant, simple, stylish or high tech then go with your intuition. Remember to try out the fixture before you buy it. Sit in the tub to get a feel of it and to check out if it is really as comfortable as it looks.
- Durable floors
Choose flooring that would not be slippery. You can go for options like ceramic, stone or marble tiles. These are non-slippery as well as durable and water resistant. Hardwood floorings are always a good option which will add warmth to your bathroom.
- Choosing the paint
Select a paint that can handle any moisture levels. Paints that are mold resistant are always a good choice.
