12 Tips for Doing a Bathroom Remodel

Remodeling your bathroom gives you a lot of new options for adding your personality into a room in your home, so bathroom remodeling adds that personal touch. Your bathroom is a place where people get ready for their day, and it requires the room to be as clean as possible while as comfortable as possible. Here are 12 tips for starting a bath remodeling project in your home.

  1. Keep your budget in mind. Your budget is going to be a factor for the type of materials you use for the remodel and set boundaries for your design. This will help you decide what needs to be replaced and what you can get creative with.

  2. Consider refinishing items already in your bathroom such as your bathtub, sink and tile. Refinishing is going to cost less than complete replacement and it won’t take as long to remodel while you still get a brand new appearance to the items.

  3. Make easy changes to get the easiest and cheapest updating. This can include faucet handles, showerheads, and drawer pulls. Keep the room looking cohesive by using the same finish for all of the updates?

  4. Update the lighting. By simply updating the lighting in your bathroom you can add dim lighting for a relaxing atmosphere, and even lighting for unflattering shadows.

  5. Make sure your bathroom has plenty of ventilation. Mold and mildew can quickly grow in a bathroom because of the moisture it accumulates. Adding ventilation will help reduce the risk of mold and mildew growth.

  6. Consider using green products. Not only are green products great for the environment but they are good for your health and help lower utility bills as well.

  7. Get creative with accent tiles. Accent tiles can add a lot to your bathroom, and you do not need to use a lot. A boarder or sporadic tile pattern gives your bathroom more character.

  8. If you have a small bathroom, use a white-to-cream color spectrum to make the bathroom look bigger.

  9. Add hooks to add surface area without needing to add countertops. Hooks are great for hanging clothes, bathrobes and towels.

  10. Consider the mirrors in the room. Mirrors help expand the room visually and add light to the room. Adding a second mirror can help enhance your bathroom significantly.

  11. Hire a professional. A professional can help you get the look and feel in your bathroom that you desire and you will avoid making any costly mistakes.

  12. Think of resale when you are remodeling. If you plan on selling your home in the future, think of the room as it would look to others who might be interested in your home.

Remodeling your bathroom can be a fun task, especially when you get to add features that you have always wanted. By following these tips you are going to be on your way to a great bathroom remodeling project.
