So you've decided it's time to update your bathroom. If you're planning to sell your home or simply decided your family needs a more updated space, there are some important decisions to make before you start.
First, consider what you have to go (no pun intended). You're remodeling because all of fixtures- bathroom, shower, toilet and sink- are outdated? Or is there a specific area of the bathroom is not working for you? Maybe the floor is outdated or peeling, or the mirrors are in inconvenient places, or would like to put out a closet or install some shelves. Before you start, indicate the exact things about your bathroom that need work. Do not immediately assume you need to check the room. You may be able to save a lot of money, from problem areas. If your bathroom seems too small, you may have to start a wall. Maybe you just need a pedestal sink instead of a cabinet one.
If you are more than ready to break everything and start from scratch, you must make decisions about what will replace existing devices. Take some measurements of your tub, sink and toilet, the replacements you're considering, and the size of the room. Note that just because you want a claw foot tub does not mean that you should have your bathroom may be too small for anything but a tub that fits closely to the wall. Draw some diagrams, and move things until they seem to fit. But note that the design of a bathroom is quite limited. The water pipes are only from the walls in places, so unless you're going to destroy the walls and plumbing, bathroom and shower, probably stay where they are, even if replaced by new ones.
Making decisions about what new items to buy should be the easy part. Examining the purchase of a toilet low flow. If you have not had a new cabinet in a while ', you'll be amazed at the savings on water bill once a new model, saving water is installed. This is also a great benefit to potential buyers, who will love the idea of saving services of each month.
Safety in the bathroom is also a consideration. Consider handles around the tub and a non-slip floor covering specifically designed for bathrooms. Many older bathrooms are lacking safety features, and this is a disadvantage when it comes to estimating the value of a home.
Remodeling your bathroom is a job that requires some forethought. Whether you are doing to sell the house or your family, it is best to take space, safety and comfort in mind. They spend a lot of time in and out of your bathroom. It could also be comfortable.
