Bathrooms are usually smaller in size when compared to other rooms in a house, but they can be rather difficult to remodel. This is because there are too many things to take into account when planning for a bathroom remodel and you may not know where to start. If you need some help making sure your remodeling produces good results, here are some useful tips you can follow.
Think beyond basic bath fixtures
Most homeowners usually don't give too much thought to their selection of bathroom fixtures. They often simply think of the basics: new sink, shower tub, and faucets. While these are by a great extent the most essential bathroom fixtures and should be the first to be refurbished or replaced, don't let them limit your imagination. Rather than settle for standard fixtures, consider the wide range of modern and stylish options to these basic components. Bathroom fixtures come in an extensive selection of traditional, contemporary, and modern styles so you can find a good match for your home design. Aside from enhancing the appearance of your bathroom and home, new and innovative bathroom fixtures are also designed to improve water efficiency.
Pay attention to the floors
Because bathrooms are often private spaces, they generally tend to pose more of a safety hazard than other rooms in the house. Should an accident occur, it is harder to get help immediately due to the isolation usually associated with the use of the bathroom. Bathroom floors are a major source of safety hazards because they remain wet and slippery surface after every bath. Knowing this, you should redo your flooring if it has become old, worn and slippery. In addition, you should consider investing in anti-slip bath mats and position them strategically on your floors. Placing them right outside the bathtub and near the sink can help cushion against any accidental slipping. Your mats can come in beautiful colours and embroidery so you can add visual appeal to your floors and entire bathroom. The best part is that non-slip mats are budget-friendly and minimally invasive.
Ensure the lighting is good
Good lighting is key to ensuring a bathroom user maintains good vision when inside the room. It also helps showcase the features of the bathroom. Always go for lights that are brighter and more durable. LED lighting would make a wonderful choice. This will save you lots of money spent on energy bills down the road. If you normally entertain guests who are not accustomed to the layout of your bathroom, consider using some low lights to improve vision. This will improve bathroom safety. Keep in mind that bathroom lights too can come in stylish designs. If you live in a traditional-style home, installing vintage LED lighting in your bathroom will complement the style of your home.
