Bathroom Remodeling 101J&J Construction of Illinois, Inc.
Start with a Wish List
You are the best person to decide whether your bathroom facilities are adequate or not. A good plan is to go over your bathroom from top to bottom, wall to wall, with a paper and a pen and write down the things that you feel are missing or insufficient. Your list should include all the elements that you want to incorporate in your remodeling project. Make sure to include lighting, electrical outlets and water pressure. Is there enough ventilation, or does your bathroom fill up with steam and remain damp hours after a shower? Are the tiles around the bathtub or shower tight or are there signs of corrosion between the base of the tub and the tile? If you see mold, that’s a sign that water may be seeping into the walls. Creating a list like this will really help you convey your wants and needs when it’s time to consult your contractor.
Never underestimate lighting in a bathroom. The bathroom is where most of us get ready for the day, and so it should hold a special place in your bathroom remodeling. Dim lighting is soothing for taking relaxing baths, whereas brighter lights are ideal for applying makeup or shaving. As you can see, it’s best to have a variety of lighting options in your bathroom.
Many homeowners may think that a budget limits you, but the budget actually gives you more freedom with your project, as it allows you to choose everything from the materials to your design choice. Getting a solid grasp on what you can afford really does make it easier to decide which items you want to replace and where you are free to get creative.
As you can see, there’s a lot that goes into a bathroom remodeling project. How do you select the right vanity? What’s the average amount of space needed for a toilet?
