We’ve spent a lot of time in our homes over the past year which means you may be itching for a change of scenery. A bathroom remodel is a great place to start for an exciting and fun home project to take on. To ensure your bathroom makeover goes smoothly and remaining in budget, you’ll need a clear plan and design. Follow these tips to make your bathroom remodel smooth, efficient, and cost-effective.
Have a Plan
Having a plan before you begin the remodeling process will help you stay within a comfortable budget. A remodel is a major investment of your time and resources, so talking with a professional helps you protect your assets and personal belongings. The experts at Daigle Plumbing, Heating & Cooling can help you build your project and make sure every product, color, and layout are exactly what you want.
Choose Long-Lasting Surfaces
Finding durable surfaces that not only contribute to your overall aesthetic but are also able to handle plenty of moisture is essential when selecting your bathroom’s surfaces. We recommend porcelain tile for walls and flooring as it resists stains, bacteria, and odors ensuring a comfortable space. Choosing a larger tile will also minimize grout lines and make upkeep easier.
Pick the Right Flooring
Picking the right flooring for your bathroom is important as it must withstand the rigors of daily bathroom use. Although a solid wood floor may be aesthetically pleasing, it’s not the most practical type of flooring material. The best type of materials includes ceramic and porcelain tile, luxury vinyl plan, vinyl tiles, and sheet vinyl flooring. Also, using an epoxy grout instead of standard grout will ensure your grout is virtually stain-proof.
Recess for Extra Room
Recessed fixtures allow for as much extra room as possible, especially if you’re dealing with a tiny bathroom. Built-in fixtures such as recessed soap dishes, medicine cabinets, or toilet roll holders will help carve out as much room as possible. Recessed lighting can also allow for extra space while still keeping your design aesthetic in mind.
Don’t Forget About Ventilation
All bathrooms need some type of ventilation, by code, either in the form of a properly sized window or a bathroom exhaust fan. For bathroom fans, look at both their exhaust capacity, and how many cubic feet of air per minute they can move, in conjunction with their noise levels.
