8 Things to Consider Before Starting a Bathroom Remodel

Are you excited about finally getting to renovate your bathroom? Well, some less exciting things need to be taken care of before you get that dreamy bathroom of yours. 

Bathrooms are an essential part of a house, and renovating them is quite time-consuming and expensive, which is exactly why you should make sure to do it properly once you have started. Here are eight things that you should consider before remodeling your bathroom.

The budget:

It is often said that “If you fail to plan, you’re planning to fail.” This statement sits quite right in this regard, seeing how if you fail to calculate your budget before you start working on your dream bathroom, then your bathroom remodeling might end up as a failure. 

To ensure that you stay on track with your plans about remodeling your bathroom, calculate your budget before starting the project. By doing this, you will be able to face doubtful situations better and remain focused. Skepticism only sets in if the budget isn’t allocated to several things beforehand. Still, if you make the budget a priority, you are all set to give your bathroom a desirable makeover!

Plants are the key to a fresh bathroom:

Out of every room in a house, bathrooms have to be the one which is the most tricky to design. Adding color to a bathroom except white feels wrong, and leaving it plain white only makes it boring. So, plants seem to be the perfect savior in this situation.

Also, plants can produce oxygen that keeps the bathroom fresh and airy at all times. Bathrooms also happen to have a high humidity rate, so make sure to select the appropriate plants. Plants are the perfect bathroom accessory and can even bring the fresh pop of color you always desired in your ordinary bathroom.

Mirrors are important:   

People often underestimate the benefits of placing a mirror in their bathroom. They believe that only one mirror is compulsory but fail to realize how important they complement the bathroom’s light and spaciousness.

Having the original mirror is important, but adding another fancy mirror can do wonders for your bathroom. The light that gets reflected by it can not only add more brightness to your bathroom but also make it look prettier. Also, your bathroom looks more spacious and stylish.

Find the hidden problems:

It’s only when you start living in a house that you know about its hidden issues. So when you start to find out about the hidden problems your bathroom has, make sure to start making a list. By doing this, you will know exactly what to fix when you start your remodeling project, and there will be no need to go down the memory lane.

It’s important to highlight the issues before starting your project. Make sure to fix what is required. Clean your hot tub, fix the broken mirror, get the plumbing checked, and so much more that needs to be renovated. Be sure to discuss everything beforehand with your renovator and get all the things that need to be fixed on that particular checklist!

Make storage space:

Having storage space is essential in your bathroom. If you didn’t have much space previously, then make sure to have plenty after the renovation. Many things need to be stored in a bathroom, including your cosmetics, dirty clothes, makeup, medicine, etc.

Sit down with your project manager and discover all the options available for creating more storage. You can consider adding vertical or horizontal shelves or simply increasing cabinets. Choose the best design according to your preference and enjoy storing your daily use products.

Ventilation:

Bathrooms happen to be a small room in many houses, and keeping them well-ventilated is an essential requirement, especially since they are wet most of the time. Ventilation quickens the process of drying the floor and removing the smell. If you previously had a poorly ventilated bathroom, you might have to face a damp bathroom floor, moldy tiles, etc. 

Make sure to choose the right fan and position the window’s opening in a way that lets your bathroom breathe. Having a well-ventilated bathroom will also allow the continuous airflow and help avoid the wooden decay on any fixtures you might have gotten done.

Lighting:

Suitable lighting can create the appropriate ambiance in a restaurant or a home but a bathroom. If you take care of the design, fittings, and everything else in a bathroom but forget to do proper lighting, the bathroom is downright impractical.

Having adequate lighting creates the proper atmosphere. The bathroom light should be considered the brightest as not having sufficient lights can be dangerous. Choose a sleek design for lighting the bathroom and see your bathroom completely transform. You might also want to add designs that enhance the natural light, and that’s fine since your bathroom’s quality will be increased.

Choose a design that will always be fresh in the market:

Designs tend to get old very fast, especially in the very competitive market of home renovation. You should never feel pressured by anyone to choose a particular design but always be aware of what complements the other or what goes best with some other accessory. 

Have a long vision and go for designs that will still look trendy in the market ten years from now. You can choose to add your personal touches and don’t feel shy discussing particular ideas with your renovator. Brainstorm ideas and only apply them if they seem good enough. Also, check out the latest trends and see if combining two or three of them can give you a good outcome.

Bathroom remodeling is never easy, but if you have an experienced renovator ready to work with you, you can do whatever you wish with your bathroom. Make sure to consider the eight things above and research yourself beforehand. 

Look at the latest trends and styles that will give you a greater outlook on your desired bathroom to look like. Remember to stay in your budget but never compromise on the excellence of the quality.
