The bathroom is often considered one of the hardest places to remodel as there are so many issues to consider for just 1 room in a home. Deciding on the desired fixtures is often daunting alone as there are just so many to pick. What bath, shower, basin and toilet do we want to deciding on the smaller fixtures such as toilet roll holders, mixer taps, shower heads and spouts. Decisions need to be made around heated towel rails, shower grates, the type of tiles and underfloor heating. The list of what a bathroom needs can seem endless and daunting. If you are considering a bathroom renovation, here are some helpful tips to get you going in the right direction.
Before making any decisions, hire a reliable and reputable cleaning company to give your bathroom a major clean to see if you can re-use any of the existing features. Replacing tiles can add new life and style to a bathroom, but will cost more than keeping the existing tiles. Next, repaint any exposed walls to freshen up the room.
Now think about location. Do you like where everything is situated? Relocating fixtures is again a more costly exercise versus just replacing the existing fittings. A bathroom can be easily updated by replacing old fixtures with the latest contemporary designs. Shower heads, taps, towel rails and toilet roll holders can be easily unscrewed and replaced with brand new fixtures. However experts will be required when installing heated towel rails, underfloor heating and new shower grates.
If you do not have towel racks, you must incorporate these in the new design. Ensure they are big enough to hold towels for all the people regularly using the bathroom. Robe hooks are also useful on the back of doors to hold extra towels.
One item you can never have enough of in a bathroom is storage. Ensure your new bathroom design incorporates room for towels, cleaning products, razors, toothbrushes, toothpastes, soaps, shampoos, conditioners, etc.
Install some shelves. Having high shelving is useful for storing extra towels and your mobile phone whilst you are showering, or even some books for the longer bathroom breaks.
Add cabinets. You do not have to put all your towels in wardrobes outside the bathroom. Instead, add a cabinet and place them there.
Add shower curtains. Always a useful thing if you do not want everything sprayed when showering. There is also a variety of colors and patterns to choose from.
This is just a tiny bit of the remodelling advice you can consider. Browse the internet, and your head could burst from all the ideas out there. Just be creative and make something fresh and practical.
