10 Primary Bathroom Remodeling Tips

Posted by vivek choudhary on December 18th, 2021

There\'s something special about a great bathroom. Do you ever get back to the table in a restaurant or hotel and feel compelled to comment on how excellent the toilets are? When we find ourselves in a beautiful bathroom, it\'s easy to feel calm, happy, and a little bit fancy.

If you\'re looking for bathroom remodeling ideas, you might be feeling overwhelmed by the choices. Bathroom renovation magazines and websites are full of stunning designs that look as lovely as the last. So which one is right for you?

Although it\'s often subconscious, we\'re drawn to bathrooms that have been thoughtfully designed to meet our needs perfectly. 

Many considerations go into creating a bathroom that makes you smile each time you look at it. I\'ve narrowed it down to ten of the most crucial ones. Keep reading to get prepared for a successful bathroom remodel.

  1. Create a Budget

When you get the opportunity to transform your home into the exact style you want, you\'re making an investment in your property and yourself. Home and bathroom remodelling can cost as much as you let it, and without a solid budget, costs can spiral.

The solution is to research local custom building costs, set a realistic budget, and stick to it. This is made more accessible if you choose a remodelling contractor or design-build firm that offers fixed pricing rather than estimates.

  1. Choose the type of bathroom.

Bathrooms come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and layouts. Chances are, you probably won\'t change the type of bathroom when you go to home renovation in Dubai. However, it\'s a good idea to look at all your options before you set your ideas in stone (or grout!). An experienced interior designer can help you see possibilities you might have missed. 

  1. Develop a bathroom layout

So you\'ve settled on the type of bathroom you\'re installing or redoing (half or full bath, wet bath or standard). Now it\'s time to think about the layout. Depending on the shape and size of the area you have to work with, there are countless variations in bathroom layout.

Important tip: Before you think about the aesthetics of your bathroom remodel, you have to nail down the layout.

  1. Choose whether you require a bathtub.

If you\'re the kind of person who takes full advantage of the utter relaxation a bath can provide, then fitting it into your home extension will be a big yes. Luxury bathtubs are best in a master en-suite where you can soak in the peace, away from anything else in the house.

If you plan to put your house on the market anytime soon, you may want to keep at least one bathtub. If you\'re planning on staying in your home for many years, then feel free to ignore that advice and convert all your tubs to luxury showers. You may never look back. 

  1. Study lighting

Lighting is something that many people forget about when designing a new bathroom. But you\'ll instantly recognize bad bathroom lighting when you see it, and it can destroy the look and utility of the space.

  1. Don\'t neglect ventilation

Bathrooms are naturally prone to dampness, and this problem is even worse in humid Seattle. The building code requires adequate ventilation if your bathroom has a shower or tub.

All bathrooms need excellent ventilation to keep occupants in good health and prevent mould from growing. Mould spells big problems for toilets and, if left untreated, can stain and do expensive damage, especially in hidden areas. 

  1. Add a little indulgence

When you\'re thinking about house renovation, you might want to add in a few extras to make your space special.

A few optional bathroom additions are becoming highly prized and even expected in modern bathrooms. Adding these during a remodel is a perfect time, as it will cause less disruption than doing it later. 

  1. Want the permanent bathroom materials

Bathrooms endure a lot of wear every day. They need to cope with big temperature swings, significant humidity changes, and outright water exposure. Bathrooms also need to be easy to clean, withstand harsh chemicals, and look attractive. 

It\'s quite the task!

Getting the most out of a bathroom remodel often means knowing where to save and where to spend money on high-quality materials. Usually, cutting costs on materials will end up costing you much more in the long run as they\'ll need replacing in a few years. 

  1. Combining a bathroom

Are you building a new bathroom from scratch? Adding an extra bathroom to your house can not only free up the morning battle for bathroom access but increase the value of your home. 

Adding a new bathroom will require designing and installing an entire plumbing system. While this is a big job, it gives you the freedom to lay out your new space precisely as you wish.
