Upgrading your bathroom will allow you to enjoy the space and will also increase the total value of your home. The process can be overwhelming and is not always an easy task; however, certain considerations will ensure that you love the end result. If you’re interested in a new bathroom, make sure you consider the following so that your remodel is completed on time and within your budget:
Consider the costs
This is the first thing you should do before a major renovation project so that you’re aware of how much your dream bathroom will cost and whether or not your budget will allow for it. You need to consider how much you’re willing to spend so that you can make decisions regarding the quality of materials and whether you want to do it yourself or hire a contractor, for example. Knowing your budget and all of the costs associated with the project will help you make informed decisions.
Try building a shower
This will make your bathroom more functional and showers are often more appealing than bulky tubs. They take up less space and a walk-in shower will make your bathroom feel bigger, so you can achieve a look that is modern and spacious because of the open concept design. Glass doors will help your bathroom appear brighter and is a great idea for bathrooms that lack natural light.
Incorporate beautiful surfaces and accessories
This includes vanity countertops, hardware as well as wall and floor tiles. These aspects will have a very big effect on the overall appearance of your bathroom and will ensure that the space is aesthetically pleasing. You can make a statement by selecting bold designs that are attention-grabbing or select surfaces that are subtle and modern in terms of design. The right surfaces will add a touch of luxury, so take the time to consider this aspect.
Don’t forget about the toilet
Most people don’t pay much attention to this aspect but choosing a suitable toilet is very important. While you may be able to get a deal, remember that you might regret the decision later on, especially if it results in additional expenses down the road. You can choose a two piece toilet, which is simple and cost effective or a one piece toilet, which is known to be more lavish and, therefore, more expensive.
Upgrade your lighting
This one aspect will make a world of difference in a bathroom, and with all the sizes and styles and endless options that are available, you will have no trouble finding one that’s to your liking.
