Our Top 5 Bathroom Renovation Tips
Is your bathroom in need of a refresh? As you start to think of the design elements that will make up your dream bathroom, it’s important to keep in mind the functionality of the room as well. Creating a bathroom that is not only beautiful but resilient long into the future is key to a successful bathroom renovation.
1. Pick Practical Flooring
Bathrooms are one of the most used rooms in the house. It is important to pick a durable floor option that can withstand frequent daily use along with excess water from showers and baths. Our top choices for bathroom flooring include ceramic or porcelain tile floors.
2. Have Enough Lighting
Bathroom lighting is often overlooked, but it’s annoying when you find yourself in a dimly lit bathroom. For bathrooms to function properly, there needs to be enough light. There should be overhead lighting as well as lighting around the vanity/mirror. Consider using a dimmer switch to control the brightness as you need.
3. Wall Protection
There will inevitably be water splashes from the sink and tub. It’s always a smart decision to try and protect your walls as best as possible. Aside from within the shower and bath area, consider adding tile, beadboard, or wainscotting to the lower portions of your wall. Not only will this help protect the walls from moisture, but it will also add a unique charm to the room.
4. Ensure Proper Ventilation
For your bathroom to stay in great condition for years to come, proper ventilation is crucial. In your bathroom remodel, consider adding windows if you have space but an exhaust fan is a must. With proper ventilation, moisture can properly exit the room so you can avoid mold and other water damage issues.
5. Keep It Bright
From the paint on the cabinets to the tile options and the rest of your bathroom features – keep it bright! Not only is it easier to keep clean, but it will help make the bathroom look larger. Also, consider adding additional mirrors as décor to help reflect the light and expand the room.
