What to Consider Before Remodeling Your Bathroom

Because renovating your bathroom often means that you are temporarily unable to stay at your home, it is important carefully consider what will be done and how it will be done before starting work. This will ultimately shorten the time without a fully functional bathroom.


Size and Measurements

Before heading out to your local home improvement store to find the most stylish toilet, bathtub, sink and furniture, you should take measurements of your bathroom so that you don’t end up purchasing items that won’t fit. Your renovation could be delayed if you purchase items that do not fit into the room, and you may even find yourself spending more money than budgeted if suppliers are unable to offer full refunds.

Think ahead and take measurements as soon as you decide to renovate. You may even want to take a floor plan with you when shopping so that you can easily and correctly imagine how the items you’re viewing will fit into the space.


Bath or Showers

The choice between a bath and a shower is often decided by the amount of space that you have to work with, as some properties only have space for a walk-in shower. If you do have the space, you'll want to consider if you'll want a standard tub or a luxury tub. If you want to create a spa-like bathroom, you may want to consider splurging on a whirlpool tub to make your bathing experience a spa-like treat.

Who will Fit it?

You will want to make sure that your new fixtures are fitted and plumbed correcting to avoid any extra expenses needed to fix problems caused by incorrect installation. By having your bathroom fitted by a professional tradesperson, you can ensure that your amenities will be installed with care and precision and with minimal disruption, meaning that once complete, you will be satisfied with both the visual and functionality of your new bathroom.

Any Extras?

We all know the basics -- a sink, a toilet and a bathtub/shower, but is there any thing else you want in your bathroom? Think about storage and style. Adding shelves or a cabinet will help complete the room and add more storage. Those will the extra space (and budget!) may want to consider elements that would transform their bathroom into a spa-like space. A comfortable chair or heated towel rail are popular options that help make the bathroom a little more luxurious.

If you're on a tight budget, you can add pampering elements such as scented candles or fresh flowers to help create a relaxing environment.
