The Top 5 Tips to Consider When Undergoing Bathroom Remodelling

top 5 tips for bathroom remodelling

Bathroom remodelling can increase the value of a home and increase the functionality of an otherwise boring space. It’s important to remember that not all bathroom remodelling is created equally, both financially and in terms of a resale value.

Follow these 5 tips to ensure you get the most bathroom remodelling for your budget:

1) Lighting Goes Along Way

When you’re remodelling your bathroom, it’s important to consider the lighting within the room. Many times, upgrading a light fixture or having a few recessed lighting pieces installed in the bathroom can make a substantial difference to the overall atmosphere. Account for natural lighting as well, if it’s available.

2) Trendy Pieces Can Date Very Quickly

Bathrooms are often the last area of a home to be upgraded, so it’s important to remember that what is popular now, might not be in style in five years. If you’re replacing major pieces like tubs, showers, toilets or vanities, try sticking to a classic white colour and play with the wall colour instead. It’s much easier to repaint in a year than have to replace blue toilets.

3) Don’t Skimp on Storage Pieces

Even a minimalistic design doesn’t mean you can’t have a place for your toiletries. Many bathrooms have less storage capacity than other rooms, leaving counters cluttered and visually unappealing. Consider investing in ample storage for the space, where everything has a place to be hidden from view. Whether you have a custom vanity built with cupboards or a shelving unit above the toilet – storage is crucial for a room with many accessories.

4) Functionality is Critical in Design Plans

Every bathroom needs to have a solid flow and organization in order for it to properly serve its purpose. That’s why you need to consider who will be using the bathroom, before you start the bathroom remodelling. Take into account the number of people in the household, whether it’s a main bathroom or a “guest bathroom” and most importantly, any physical limitations you or another in the home might have.

5) Don’t Forget the Accessories

While bathroom remodelling might consist of replacing the physical pieces within the room, accessories can help the transformation feel complete. Be sure to leave room in your budget for items like towels, decorative pieces, wall hangings, baskets and rugs – which will help pull the entire renovation together when you’re finished. It’s important to have a professional contractor help you in any bathroom remodelling, as they’re likely experienced in both plumbing work and functional design. Be sure to talk to them about any ideas or colours you’d like to have brought into the space before you begin the process to see what type of ideas you can bring into the bathroom, without compromising on space. Finally, be sure to talk to your contractor about the realistic budget you have in mind, and whether there’s any room to bend in the event of an unforeseen problem (like plumbing issues behind the wall).
