Bathroom remodeling is a long and extensive project that takes a lot of investment in terms of time, money and effort. Moreover, you need to live with the results for the next several years. So, before you remodel, here are a few things that you need to think about:

 

Budget

Before you think about anything else, think about how much you want to spend on your bathroom renovation. Once you allocate a budget, set aside a little bit for any additional cost that could pop up. You will then have a clearer idea on how much you can afford to spend on the materials and extra attachments. It will help you decide what to include in the remodeling and what to cast aside.

Safety

Bathrooms are a hotspot for accidents. So make sure that your renovated bathroom will be as safe as possible. Grab bars and other safety tools are not only for the elderly or the sick. These little additions could prove to be a lifesaver. Also, think twice before using slippery tiles for the flooring. Tiles with some texture and traction could save you a trip to the ER.

Design

Before you get started, you must think about the look you want your bathroom to have. Think about the color palate, tiles, hardware, lighting, and other elements of the design. Start with the elements that you like and slowly piece them together to get the design that you want.

Functionality

Bathrooms are highly functional spaces. Think about who’ll use the bathroom and what they’ll use it for. Make sure that the remodeled design works well with the usability of the bathroom. Think of shelving, lightings, ventilation and accessories that could be of help. The design should not hinder you from using the bathroom comfortably.

Materials

The material you use for the remodeling is one of the most important aspects you need to consider. This includes tiles, tubs, faucets, sinks and other hardware. The materials should be of high quality, easy to use and to your personal tastes.

 

Take these things into consideration before you start remodeling your bathroom and you’ll thank yourself 10 years from now.
