Remodeling your bathroom is an exciting project, but it is also a huge investment, of both money and time. The finished product should be everything you need to create a relaxing, comforting oasis where you can prepare for your day and then unwind when you’re done the day. While it is absolutely vital to keep your budget front and center as you plan, this is also a good time to dream about all the things you could possibly do in the space. As you embark on planning your bathroom remodel, here are some things to keep in mind.
TALK TO HOUSEMATES
Whether the other people living in your house are roommates, your spouse, and kids, or other family members and friends, you need to talk to them before you begin the project. This is especially true if you only have one bathroom in the home. Even if you have multiple bathrooms, putting one out of commission for a stretch could upset the normal routines of people in the home. Talking about the idea honestly is the best way to start out as stress-free as possible.
LAYOUT AND LIGHTING
There are lots of things to consider when planning a new layout. First and foremost, there may be things about the bathroom that you simply can’t change (or can’t afford to change), such as the location of the toilet. Other factors in the layout are likely more negotiable, including adding an additional sink, swapping the sub for a higher-end model or a shower instead, and adding storage space. Think about how many people will use the bathroom daily, and what uses (if any) might overlap. Plan the layout to meet those needs. While you’re planning the layout, you should also be thinking about lighting. Make decisions about lighting early so that you can make the required structural and electrical changes. Make sure you have lighting options that offer ambiance as well as task lighting for special activities, like doing makeup or removing splinters.
Now is also the time to dream big and find a way to incorporate things that you’ve always dreamed of having to make the space a luxurious oasis. Things like heated floors and integrated sound systems can make the space comfortable and functional. A smart shower is also an exciting investment in bathroom technology, but even simply putting in additional shower heads can make the shower more relaxing.
