In: Reno Tips, What's New

If you’re contemplating a bathroom renovation in the near future, we’ve got 5 essential bathroom renovation tips for you! Being prepared is the most important step of any renovation so having all the bases covered ahead of time is a great place to start.


1. If you don’t love it, don’t buy it!

When it comes to choosing faucets, tubs, fixtures, and all that jazz, make sure you fall in love with it first. It’s almost more important than choosing your wedding dress! You will be spending a lot time looking at these pieces once they’re installed and it would be terrible if you realized soon after “I should have just gone with the matte” or “I wish I went with my gut on the rail shower…” and if you’re worried about finding something you love within your budget, there are hundreds of options in every budget category. Your contractor, designer, or renovations specialist will definitely be able to help find those perfect pieces.


2. Bigger doesn’t always mean better – we’re talking about bathtubs!

Sit in the bathtub before you buy it. A 60-inch tub is usually more than enough space for most people however, we all come in different shapes, sizes, and have our own preferences to what the word “comfort” means. Lean back in the tub and assess the back and neck support. If you only have space for a smaller tub, consider an extra-deep one.



3. Choose flooring that lasts!

Marble, ceramic, and stone tiles are durable, water-resistant, and great choices for a bathroom floor. Keep in mind that you’ll be getting in and out of a shower or bathtub and water loves to find its way into the most obscure areas so you’ll want to pick something that won’t warp, peel, or crack. No one likes cold feet – subfloor heating will keep these hard surfaces warm for those mornings you want to stay cozy.



4. Use all of your space!

Take advantage of all your space with a tall storage cabinet either recessed into the wall or between two sinks. This will maximize vertical storage while saving that precious floor space. Click here for more storage optimization ideas!



5. It’s all about the lighting!

Good lighting is essential. Ladies, you understand how lighting makes a world of difference in your morning routines! To eliminate unwanted shadows, combine halogen pot lights with wall sconces beside or over the mirror. Installing dimmers will give you the option to adjust for sensitive eyes in the morning or simply setting the mood to use that extra deep tub you just purchased.
