3 Ideas for a Bathroom Remodel:
January 2, 2016 by Caleb Haniquet
Sometimes, the bathroom is the only room in the house where you can be alone. The average person will spend about a year and a half of their life in the bathroom, which means your bathroom remodel should incorporate a comfortable, homey feel for you and your family. Creating a relaxing atmosphere for your bathroom should be your first priority when redesigning one of the most important rooms in the house. Here are some ideas for your bathroom remodel.
Showers/Baths: One of the most exciting parts about a bathroom remodel is designing your new shower or bath. A frameless glass enclosure is a very modern and popular design idea that is pleasing to the eye. You could have a shower with double doors, or even sliding doors and add a bench and some built in shelves to hold your soaps and shampoos. If you have enough space in your bathroom, you can separate the shower from the bathtub for a more luxurious look and feel. If you don’t want both, you could stick with a large, lavish whirlpool tub that’s sure to make everyone happy.
Vanities: Vanities come in endless styles such as single sink, double sink, wall mounted, and curved front. Depending on the space you have to work with and the look you are going for, you’ll want to think carefully when redesigning this part of your bathroom. Choosing the type of material for your bathroom remodel depends upon how you plan to use your vanity. You could go for colors and designs or you could go for durability and resiliency. Either way, you want to make sure your vanity won’t warp from water leakage. You also have the ability to choose types of cabinets, countertops, and other storage options for your vanity.
Shelving: It’s a good idea to mount extra shelves onto your bathroom walls in order to save more floor space when redesigning your bathroom. Another great way to save space while adding more storage is by adding built-in shelves to your bathroom remodel. You can also add doors to your built-in shelving if you don’t want your towels and toiletries out in the open. If you have extra space to fill, buying a portable shelving unit for your new bathroom may be a good idea as well.
