If you’re planning on doing some bathroom remodeling, it can be hard to know where to start, especially if you’ve never renovated an entire room before. There are so many different things that could change in your bathroom, whether it’s new cabinets or a shower curtain, and it can be overwhelming even to make the first move.
Here are four tips to help ensure that your bathroom remodel as successful as possible:
Design an open and functional space
The bathroom cabinets you choose should be open and spacious, allowing plenty of room to store towels, hair products, and anything else you may need on hand. An open cabinet also lets more light into your bathroom, which is crucial when you’re spending time there.
Open cabinets can also bring aesthetic value to your bathroom; if everything looks neat and organized inside them, it will look like you have more space than you actually do.
Consider purchasing a marble or glass top for your bathroom sink: not only will it make your bathroom look bigger, but you won’t have to worry about water damaging anything below (such as wood or vinyl).
Create a relaxing and rejuvenating space
In many ways, your bathroom is more than just a place to shower and go. It’s where you get ready in front of a mirror, shave your legs, brush your teeth, wash away the day’s grime and relax before going to bed.
You can do all sorts of things to make your bathroom more relaxing and rejuvenating—and it doesn’t require an extreme remodel. Most bathrooms can be wholly revamped without making much of a dent in your budget, and that makes them one of the most affordable areas to focus on when planning a remodel or upgrade.
Whether you’re getting ready for guests or spending time alone with yourself, there are simple upgrades that will have you feeling pampered every time you enter your bathroom.
Consider future needs
Think about how you’ll use your bathroom, both now and in future years. If you’re hoping to have kids one day, start planning and looking for kid-friendly solutions to make it easier to maintain order once little ones are involved.
You might want to plan an all-around bathroom remodel (mainly if some of your present decors are less than ideal), but if that’s not feasible or realistic given your budget, consider doing more minor updates, such as adding a new tub or sink.
Remodeling a bathroom is something most of us will have to deal with at some point. The fact is, most bathrooms have been renovated many times, often based on little more than cosmetic needs.
Unfortunately, those who do go about things without much thought end up regretting their decision later on down the road. Therefore, always plan your new bathroom around the present and future needs by keeping an eye on your storage requirements, family growth, and other factors that can affect your design plans.
Update lighting to allow personalization
With innovative home technology, you can program your lights to switch on and off at specific times or match your circadian rhythm. In addition, personalizing lighting will help make your space seem more welcoming and comfortable.
Instead of defaulting to overhead lights, find a wall sconce with an exposed bulb that allows you to change out bulbs depending on how much light you need in different areas of your bathroom.
Adjustable dimmers also offer similar customizability while keeping overall wattage low; they’re another great way to personalize lighting without switching entire fixtures.
