Things to Consider When Remodeling Your Bathroom

Whether your bathroom remodeling goal is to simply update your tub or shower, or fully remodel your existing bathroom into a luxury spa like retreat, it’s important to set your goals upfront so you have accurate budget for your project and to give yourself and any contractors you hire an accurate scope of the work that is needed. Before you get started, evaluate and consider the following:

1.     Plumbing. Determine if Plumbing Need to be Moved or Replaced. Will your existing drain lines be sufficient or will they need to be cleaned, moved or upgraded to accommodate your new bathroom layout and features?

2.     Counters and Cabinets. Will your vanity be floating or mounted on the floor? What size will you need and what are your storage requirements? What type of counter do you want? Granite, Quartz, Corian? Weight out the pros and cons of each before deciding.

3.     Choosing a Shower or a Bathtub? When considering whether to choose a bathtub, tub shower combo or stand-alone shower – ask yourself how many baths you take a year and consider if you may need a barrier free, easy access shower that is easier to get into than a bathtub.

4.     Lighting. Consider adding recessed lighting in your ceiling to brighten up the bathroom or a grand chandelier if you have high ceilings. Don’t forget to include one (or two) above your tubs and/or shower. And before you order that fancy chandelier for over your soaking tub, consult local building codes. Most often chandeliers have to be mounted at certain distance above the bathtub. Also consider installing a dimmer switch so you can adjust the mood in your bathroom.

5.     Showerheads.  When purchasing and choosing a location for showerheads, consider placing the showerhead higher on the wall if you’re tall. And if you plan on having a shower bench, why not make sure the handheld is long enough to use for shaving your legs. Want a spa like shower experience? Consider a rain forest or due shower heads.

6.     Safety Features. Always an important consideration, be sure to add some safety features like grab bars, a shower seat, non-slip bath mats or a slip resistant acrylic tub shower surround to keep you safe in the bathroom.
