Many bathroom improvements look beautiful, but which of them are necessary and will add functionality and not just aesthetics?
Every time you flip through a design magazine or watch a remodeling show, there are so many different features people have installed in their bathrooms. Many of them look beautiful, but which of them are necessary and will add to the functionality of your bathroom, not just the aesthetics?
Remodeling your bathroom adds value to your home and updates its style. But an essential subject to consider is whether or not it’s adapted to your current needs. Renovations are the perfect time to introduce new improvements that serve the right purposes for you and your family.
Improvements to Consider
Some of the bathroom improvements you need to consider before having your bathroom remodeled include:
- Choosing a Toilet – One of the first items in your bathroom to consider is the toilet. You may be thinking there’s not much to think about, after all, isn’t a toilet just a toilet? Well, actually no. There are thousands of toilets on the market, and when choosing the right one, there are a few things to consider. Size, height, and how well it functions need to be factored into your decision. Some toilets are elongated, while others are simply round. The right size depends on each person in the family.
- The Right Bathroom Sink – Many people are overwhelmed by the available options among bathroom sinks. But this is only true when you’re not sure what you’re looking for. Therefore, before you set out for the sink store, consider what you want, who in the family will be using it, and how much space you have. When you’re armed with the information you need, you’ll be able to narrow down the best options for you and your bathroom area.
- A Tub or a Walk-In Shower – This is a big question! And if you’re not sure, you’re not alone. Many homeowners who are remodeling their bathroom get stuck on this question quite often. And to be fair, both styles have their pros and cons. One way to resolve the issue is by considering what you already have. Do you currently have a bathtub? If so, how much does it get used? If you have more than one tub in your home, taking one of them out and replacing it with a walk-in shower may still be perfectly functional for your family’s needs. Again, thinking about these things ahead of time will reduce your frustration.
- The Right Flooring – Again, there are endless options when it comes to flooring. Natural stone, porcelain, vinyl, ceramic, oh my! When choosing the right flooring for your bathroom, there’s more than just personal style to keep in mind. For instance, is your flooring impervious to water, will it stain easily if makeup is spilled on it, and is it safe to walk on when your feet are wet? Each type of flooring can have its pros and cons, so it’s a good idea to do some research before heading out to the store.
