When you are doing a bath remodeling job, it’s important to consider many things. The finished room should be exactly how you want it, from stylishness to practicality.
Choosing your Fixtures and Bathtub
When doing a bath remodel, one of the most important (and fun) parts is choosing a new tub and fixtures. Finding the balance between comfort, practicality, and style, shouldn’t be too difficult, but it is important, so take your time.
If you are leaning toward style, a pedestal sink and claw-foot, classic tub will lend a great deal of style to your bath remodel. If space is an issue, you could choose a smaller, deeper style of tub.
You shouldn’t have to spend an arm and a leg to find a quality toilet, but you will need to put about $300-$400 into your toilet purchase, if you want it to last as long as the rest of your bathroom remodeling.
You should always sit in a tub before purchasing it, if possible. Make sure that you are comfortable in it, because regardless of style, your bath should be a comfortable place for you, and what works for one person may not for another.
Flooring for your Bathroom Remodeling
When choosing a new flooring during bath remodeling, you should think about 4 things:
How easily cleaned it is
There are many different types of flooring to choose from, but ceramic, stone, or marble tiles fit the above considerations best, for bathroom remodeling. If you choose tile, but think that it will be too cold, an option that may work for your bath remodel, is to install subfloor heating coils, which would keep these floors warm.
You can take advantage of the space between your wall studs, creating large standing cabinets inside the walls. The cabinet should be at least 3 inches deep, and have the door flush with your wall.
Finding the Perfect Shower
Finding the perfect shower for your bath remodel, depends on a few different things. Some people choose to save space, by incorporating a shower into their bathtub; some have the space for a small shower stall and a bathtub.
Many people that are bathroom remodeling are building a shower. This is a great choice, if you have the space for it, because it allows you unlimited options, including:
Door vs curtain vs open concept
More than one shower head
Lighting for Your Bath Remodeling
For great ambience, install a dimmer switch with your lighting in your bathroom. This way, you can have good bright lighting to prepare for your day, and dim, relaxing lighting for an evening bath.
