Tips for remodeling a small bathroom:
Bathroom renovation can quickly get out of hand. A one-of-a-kind sink, a granite countertop and the like can add to the costs quicker than you can say “over budget.” Here are pointers that should be part of your plan when you start bathroom renovation project.
Do not be afraid to have a budget!
This sounds like common sense, right? Still, people do not usually consider the financial implications until the very end of the bathroom redesign project and they are unable to handle the debt. Figure out what you want to spend your money on and make a compromise with the things you can afford at the start of your project. Have someone from Rossi Construction, Inc. sit with you while the calculations are completed, so the two of you can agree on all that needs to be completed.
Leave the plumbing where it started!
The sink, shower and toilet are always best left in their original position. It may look easy to make the move, but it will involve a lot of work to modify and move the plumbing to new sites. A plumbing move may even involve work on the walls and additional rooms within your home. This can be too much work and you will need to spend much of your budget to get the move completed. Spend the money on other, more important fixtures and fittings.
Add bigger, better lights!
Try adding sconces on either side of a vanity mirror. Do not forget to add a dimmer, they come in handy when it is time to relax in the bath.
Ventilate the bathroom!
A vented exhaust fan is a must for smaller bathrooms. Way too much moisture can age fixtures and fittings, which can put all of your renovation efforts to waste.
