Everything You Should Know About Remodeling Your Bathroom

When doing a bathroom remodel there is a lot to take into consideration.  Prior planning on any major home improvement allows the project to move along smoother but none so more than with a bathroom especially a master bath.  Below are some tips to help the renovation of your bathroom run smooth.
First and last, hire a contractor.  When taking on the remodel of a room that is used daily such as a bathroom or kitchen, minimizing downtime is the most important step in the process.  When you are trying to accomplish a remodel on your own and deal with the demands of everyday life it is easy to become overwhelmed and sloppy.  The expense added when hiring a contractor is often off set by time saved and the amount of a discount they receive when purchasing materials for your project.
The next step is to preplan as much as possible.  Purchase materials ahead of time.  When looking for faucets purchase quality and elegance.  It will sell well later on when you are ready to move and can be adjusted to fit into any style bathroom.  Looking for a tub?  Try it out.  This requires you actually getting into it, sitting, stretching out and taking into account everything that you will want the tub to serve a purpose for.  Larger tubs are needed when taking into consideration aging in place modifications.  This is all something you should consider.  Once the tub is installed it is too late to go back and redo the mistake without costing a lot of money and access time.
Bathroom flooring should be durable and able to stand the test of time even with the moisture and water build up that occurs in a bathroom.  Most often bathroom flooring consists of ceramic tile. Ceramic tile flooring is durable, up to date and varies in expensive making it a solid choice in bathroom flooring.
A nice toilet is a must for any bathroom renovation.  In stock homes the cheapest toilet is usually chosen.  For an extra hundred bucks or so you can increase the comfort of your toilet tenfold.  A toilet that is high is easier on the knees while a toilet that offers slant in positioning adds comfort.  Your bathroom especially in a remodel should add comfort to your lifestyle.
Another feature that is important in the bathroom is the lighting.  Lighting in a bathroom should always be adjustable.  Bright lighting is not always necessary but is nice when applying makeup, waxing or shaving.  Dim lighting is nice to add some ambience for a relaxing bath or when waking up in the morning.   Lighting is a very important element in most rooms throughout your home.  It is not something to overlook and should always be incorporated into the budget especially in bathroom renovations.
When renovating a bathroom consider the small details.  Don’t overdo it but consider adding some as they often bring the luxury to your home renovations.  One thing that sells a home is a luxurious master bath so it is important not to miss the mark!
