When it comes to bathroom remodeling, there’s a ton of different things that can be done to turn your dream bathroom into reality. Many people think that bathroom remodeling has to be expensive, a financial burden if you will, but that’s not the case at all. Bathrooms are typically small for the most part, but that doesn’t make coming up with bathroom design ideas any easier. In this article, we’re going to give you some basic bathroom remodel tips and give you some awesome ideas to create the perfect look for your bathroom.
Ceramic, marble and stone tiles are all excellent durable and water-resistant choices for a bathroom. Subfloor heating coils will make these hard surfaces warm. Well-sealed hardwood floors offer natural warmth and act as a foil for the other hard, cold surfaces in a bathroom.
Bathroom flooring needs to be done correct or you’ll have a host of issues later on down the road. If you must, hire a local bathroom remodeling contractor to install your bathroom flooring and other components of the bathroom.
You’ll be amazed how lighting can transform your bathroom. We love lighting options for the vanity area. If you don’t have a vanity, don’t worry, consider lighting around the mirrors or your tub/shower. If you don’t have a mirror, purchase one. You can get some beautiful mirrors that would be appropriate for less than a hundred dollars. Good lighting is imperative. Combine halogen pot lights with wall sconces beside or over the mirror for lighting with no shadows. We also suggest installing dimmers, you’ll love this option.
There’s also a number of different ways that you can go with a new toilet, some more expensive than others. We suggest a good quality toilet, the one-and done approach. A good quality toilet for the bathroom will likely run around $400 but well worth the investment. Models with elongated bowls and seats are usually quite comfortable.
If you have enough in your budget, you may wish to go another route. In this business, you often get what you pay for.
Bathroom Shower And Tub
There’s plenty of options to weigh out when it comes to your bathroom shower or bathroom tub. If you’re remodeling a half bathroom, you likely need no tub. But if you have a full size bathroom, a tub or shower is a must. Consider building an open-concept shower area that doesn’t need a curtain or door and is less confining than a standard shower stall. In addition to well-designed drainage, a ceiling-mounted rain showerhead and/or a high wall-mounted showerhead that splashes less water will keep the area outside the shower drier.
You can use a number of different tiles if you choose to go with a stand-up shower. The same can be said with the flooring. And for the tub, you can go the conventional route or you may take it up a level with a spa tub. Just depends on your budget.
Make Your Bathroom Space Work
You know what we say about an open space? Something can go there! If you have open space in your bathroom, make it work with your design. Simple shelves can go a long way.
If you need space, use your bathroom walls. Adding shelves and studs to the walls will give you more space. Install some bathroom cabinets for all the needed bathroom accessories. Bathroom furniture will help you cover up open space as needed. You can get some cute furniture for cheap at the Dollar Store or Dollar General, just in case your shopping on a budget.
