In recent years, bathrooms have been transformed from utilitarian to extraordinary. Your new bathroom can become a place to efficiently prepare for the day ahead and a private refuge to relax and unwind. Of course, no matter the extent of your bathroom remodel, you want a functional space that works for your family. If you’re in the beginning stages of considering a bathroom remodeling project, these tips will help you create a space you will love for years to come.
Put Function First
No matter how large or luxurious the space, if it doesn’t have the features you need, you won’t love the results of your bathroom remodel. Little changes in layout can make a big difference in how the space works for you and your family. For example, if you have multiple children sharing a bathroom, you may want to separate the tub and shower from the sink area. An example for a master bathroom is adding a separate second vanity.
Add Luxuries Important to You
Rarely do people undergo the expense and hassle of a bathroom remodel without changing something in the space. In bathroom remodeling, there are many elements that we like to call “necessary luxuries.” A few of these you may want to consider are:
- Heated towel bar
- Jacuzzi or oversized soaking tub
- Heated floors
- Rainfall shower or multiple showerheads
- Built-in shower seat
- Separate vanities
Once you know your “must haves,” you can start working on your layout.
Lay Out the Space
Although you may think that there are few options as far as layout goes, that’s not always the case. Although some things make logical sense, like having the sink closer to the door than the toilet, for example, there are minor changes that you may want to consider. You want things you use often in easy reach. As you think about those items, do you need to move your linen closet? Would a medicine cabinet for each vanity add some convenience? There are many options.
Find Your Style
It may seem odd that we left choosing a bathroom remodeling style as the last step in your project, but because style works around layout, it should be your last step. After all, tile, fixtures, vanities and countertops come in countless styles and colors. This is when working with an experienced bathroom remodeling company like G.M.
