Are you getting ready to take on a bathroom remodeling project? Maybe you’re simply wanting to add value to your home or just treat yourself to the bathroom of your dreams. Here are some great bathroom remodeling tips to keep in mind while you are planning.
Take your bathtub for a test drive
While the salesperson, most likely, won’t run a hot bubble bath for you, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to climb in and try out a tub before purchasing it. If you’re investing in bathroom remodeling, you want to be happy with the end result. Make sure you can relax comfortably in your new tub before having it delivered. There’s nothing worse than trying to soak in a tub that doesn’t fit you.
Consider a more spacious shower
If you love taking showers rather than soaking in a tub, you might want to consider an open concept shower area in you bathroom remodeling project. These shower areas give you more elbow room and they don’t even require a curtain or door. You can opt for a ceiling mounted rain showerhead and/or a high wall mounted showerhead.
Brighten things up with beautiful lighting
Natural window or sky-lighting is always a good choice for brightening up a bathroom. If the bathroom you’re remodeling is not in a position to bring in natural lighting, make sure that there is enough artificial lighting to prevent the room from turning into a dungeon. Remember, this is a room to relax in.
As an energy saving tip, you should consider installing LED lighting. The Phillips LED bulbs produce 60 watts of warm light while only using 10 watts of energy. The bonus, they are also designed to last 20 years if they are ran 4 hours a day.
Designing Your Dream Vanity
Try choosing more elegant fixtures opposed to the cheap blocky standard. A very affordable countertop option is to have your bathroom countertop refinished with a granite look. Rather than sticking with the traditional mirror setup, consider a beautifully framed mirror over your new sink. You could even add an additional wall mounted adjustable mirror.
