The Basics of Bathroom Remodeling

When homeowners decide to take on bathroom remodeling, they often only consider what color they would like it to be painted, and then look for matching towels. However, with bathroom renovations, the possibilities of what you can do to enhance the room go far beyond what the color of the room is. Even a smaller space can be completely transformed into something luxurious and beautiful. There are countless creative design elements that can truly make your bathroom unique.

Determining the atmosphere of what you would like your bathroom to be like is often the first step. You may want to simply update and have your bathroom match the rest of your home’s décor, or you may want to have a bathroom that stands apart and is something more modern or trendy. You may choose to go with a completely different color palette, and in addition to simply getting new paint or wallpaper, you will want to consider the color and type of countertops and flooring.

Lighting is another element of bathroom remodeling that is important. By enhancing the lighting in your bathroom, you can change the atmosphere of the room in addition to providing more functionality. You may want to add in light in the areas where you shave or put on your make-up. You should also consider adding in a dimmer so you can have bright light for function and cleaning but also have the option for lower lighting.

Often the plumbing fixtures are forgotten about during bathroom remodeling, but updating them is important. Having quality plumbing fixtures will cut down on plumbing problems down the road and also can enhance the room’s appearance. During this process, you may consider safety and beauty and think about putting in walk-in-tub or no threshold shower. Grab bars can also be installed in the bathing area. You can also choose to install a toilet that is raised or lowered, depending on personal preference.

Storage space is important in a bathroom as well. In choosing new cabinetry, you can add style to the room along with functionality. There are many items that people store in their bathrooms, and having sufficient space to store everything is crucial. If you decide that new cabinetry is not necessary, you can instead choose to update the existing hardware to reflect your bathroom’s new look. Details as small and simple as hardware should be considered since every element in the bathroom contributes to the overall appearance.

The design possibilities for your bathroom remodeling project are only limited by your creativity. Your style and design ideas coupled with quality materials are the formula for a breathtaking and spectacular bathroom.
