6 Things You Most Likely Didn’t Know About Bathroom Remodel
Bathrooms are the number one place that homeowners love to remodel, even more than kitchens. The space is smaller, making the job a bit easier. Plus, this reduced space means reduced cost: less flooring and paint, fewer cabinets and countertop. Follow these tips to make your bathroom remodel more attractive while keeping the process smooth, efficient, and cost-effective.
Recess For Extra Room
When space is extremely tight, built-ins such as recessed soap dishes, medicine cabinets, and even toilet roll holders, pry out as much available room as possible from tiny bathrooms. The ceiling light can even be flattened by converting it into a recessed light.
Address Bathroom Ventilation
All bathrooms need some type of ventilation, by code, either in the form of a properly sized window or a bathroom exhaust fan.
Add Plants for Living Colour
Plants in the bathroom should not be an afterthought. Plants bring much-needed colour into sterile bathrooms. Consider adding a floating shelf expressly for the purpose of giving your trailing plants a cozy home.
Include More Mirrors in the Bathroom
Most people think of mirrors in bathrooms only for the purpose of checking makeup or primping hair. But it’s also important to think of mirrors in bathrooms as design elements that expand the room visually and add light to the room.
Add More Opportunities to Hang Items
Hooks are the easiest way to add surface area to a bathroom without actually adding a real countertop surface area. Hooks can be used for everything from clothes, to bathrobes, to towels. Place hooks on the back of the door, on the side of cabinets, or on unused sections of walls.
Bathroom Lighting Matters
At the very least, consider adding lighting around the bathroom mirror in the form of sconces. A very simple device that can add mood to your bathroom is a dimmer switch. The dimmer switch is perfect for late-night relaxing baths.
