A full bathroom remodel has several aspects you need to give careful consideration to. Here are some tips to keep in mind as you plan a new bathroom.

As you plan an efficient layout, keep in mind the plumbing drains and water lines. Browse layouts online for ideas, including spa-like features you may want to add. A one-wall layout (lines up the sink, toilet, and shower on one wall) is the most cost-effective and the most limiting. A two-wall layout gives you more flexibility. The sink and toilet can be plumbed on one wall and the tub and shower on the other. The three-wall layout is the most versatile and also the most complicated and expensive.

What sort of sink are you looking for? Integral bathroom sinks (one piece with the vanity counter) and undermount bathroom sinks make it easy to wipe messes from the counter into the sink. Self-rimming bathroom sinks, on the other hand, are the most economical and the easiest to install, but the perimeter lip can collect grime.

Bath_002Bathtubs and showers are the natural focal point of a bathroom. Freestanding bathtubs or platform bathtubs both will make an impact on your decorating style. If you want a tub, whichever type you choose, you can opt for a soaking tub or a whirlpool tub to maximize your relaxation in the bath. If you prefer a luxury shower found in spa-resorts, there are lots of options –  a two person shower, rain shower showerheads, body sprays, and handheld showerheads. You’ll enjoy choosing your favorite doors and surfaces at well.

Bathroom cabinetry offers hosts of options to add style to your bathroom. Whether you prefer contemporary, traditional, vintage, Old World, or custom storage hutches, bathroom cabinetry merges form and function and carries the style statement you want to make. Bathroom cabinets are available in stock units, in semicustom units with options, or you can have them custom-designed and built. The price range of each depends on the material, finish, and construction.

General lighting of your bathroom  is a choice of style and mood; ceiling-mounted fixtures, pendant lights or chandeliers all make a statement. Accent lights to spotlight a feature add flash and mood. However, the most significant area of bathroom lighting is the mirror. Make sure to consider the lighting around the mirror so you can lite your face without shadows. This is easily accomplished with a light on each side of the mirror and one above.

Bath_007Superior bathroom floors are slip-resistant, impervious to water, and attractive. A honed flooring finish offers traction and style. Ceramic tiles rated “impervious” are the most waterproof.  Select tiles with a slip-resistant finish and seal all grout for easier cleaning.

Working with an experienced remodeler will help you avoid costly mistakes and make the best use of your space.
