What to Consider BEFORE your Bathroom Renovation
Factors to Consider Before Your Bathroom Remodel
Developing a functional and beautiful living space should be the primary objective of a bathroom remodel. To avoid costly repairs and added expenses, our experts at Bull Run Kitchen and Bath are outlining all the important factors you need to consider before renovating the bathroom:
When it comes to bathroom remodeling, it is the inside that counts the most. Before upgrading the bathroom’s overall aesthetics, improve the plumbing first so the space will stand the test of time. A typical residential plumbing features narrower drains and pipes so they are more likely to clog. Our advice is to upgrade the plumbing before giving the bathroom a facelift.
If you are going after a certain look, you have to be selective in terms of the fixtures you’ll have installed in the bathroom. For instance, a traditional bathroom calls for ornate fixtures in an antiquated finish while contemporary bathroom requires modern fixtures with clean, simple design. Bull Run Kitchen and Bath will work with your subcontractors and designers to design your dream bathroom.
Extra storage is important in any living space and the bathroom is no exception. To add more room in the bathroom, we recommend installing a vanity with drawer storage. You can also install additional shelves mounted on the walls for your towels and toiletry supplies. This way, all your bathroom items are easy to organize and even easier to access.
If you want to get as much natural light as possible in the bathroom, consider adding recessed light fixtures in strategic spots in the space. You can add two recessed lights in the shower and a couple in the vanity area so you can see very well when applying your makeup or shaving.
Should you use small or larger tiles? It depends on the slope of the flooring. Larger tiles are harder to slope properly. Unless they are textured, large tiles also feature very smooth surfaces that get slippery when wet. On the other hand, smaller tiles are easier to slope properly and they provide better traction whether they are textured or smooth.
