Things to Consider When Starting a Bathroom Remodel
If you’re looking to give your old bathroom a bit of a facelift, there are some considerations you need to bear in mind before jumping straight in. Bathroom remodelling is an exciting task, and it can be easy to get caught up in selecting tile designs and lusting after jacuzzi bathtubs and forget about the more practical side of things. To help you, the team here at Ebberns have put together some of the things you should consider when starting your bathroom remodel.
Bathroom remodeling can be very expensive, especially if you have a penchant for some of the more luxurious features available to you, so try to set your budget before you begin your planning. This will force you to be strict and prioritise what matters most to you in your bathroom design.
The size of your bathroom will impact on the design of the bathroom, and you may find that the limited space can make fitting in all the features of your dream bathroom impossible. Speak to a professional designer about the limitations you face as an expert in the industry will have more ideas on how to make the space function well. There are many beautiful bathroom designs for smaller spaces, so don’t be disheartened if your room is smaller than you’d like it to be. Whether it’s opting for a smaller bathtub or forsaking it all together, using clever storage techniques or creating a wet room, there are many options available to you to make the space work.
If you have small children or elderly relatives at home you will need to consider any additional safety features you will require when designing your bathroom. Grip bars and shower seats are great tools to allow added support when using the facilities, and you can opt for shower tiles that have added grip to reduce the risk of accidents – we’d recommend stone tiles which have a non-slip, textured surface.
Having good lighting in a bathroom is crucially important as it is often the place where daily care and personal grooming takes place. Utilise the natural lighting you have with large windows, but if your bathroom is still dimmer than you’d like it to be, consider adding spot lighting when remodelling your bathroom to create a natural glow that will allow you to take care of your hygiene with greater precision.
While the functionality of your bathroom is of obvious importance, don’t forgo the beauty of the room in favour of more practical concerns. Your bathroom can be both beautiful and functional, and a good designer will be able to balance the two aspects perfectly.
